Question about Radio Shack Radio Communications

1 Answer

I bought my friend the iscan pr0-107 truking scanner for Christmas but she is unable to get it to work. No channels are being picked up. Are there areas where the scanner won't work? (we live near Saginaw, MI). Is there anyplace in the area where we can take the scanner for help in programming? Will they program it at the local radio shack?

If you haven't yet programmed it for your area, you won't get much - if any - reception. Most Radio Shack stores will program the scanner for you, or at least give you some valuable assistance in programming it. They can also sell you programming software to simplify the task. IMHO the Butel software available from is the best on the market, and it will let you download virtually every frequency and system in your area directly to the scanner. I also suggest that you visit for a comprehensive database of active freqs and systems in your area, and a lot of other useful scanning information.

How to do a factory reset on pro 107 iscan scanner

Hi Anthony,

I'm not familiar with your 107 (iscan) radio scanner, but every scanner I have ever owned has a reset button, which is usually recessed.

Look for a tiny hole eith n the lower front panel or rear panel, it should be marked(not always) reset, you will need a thin ball point pen or similar to press this button in for aprox 3 seconds, while the radio is turned on.

By doing this, you would have restored it to factory default settings.

I hope I have been of assistance to you.

Radio shack iscan trunking scanner, pro-107

I no longer provide support for any scanners. As a Police Dispatcher I was working when two police officers were ambushed and killed because a person listening to a scanner told the suspects the police were coming. They should be outlawed.

Un able to install HP 2410 Scanner in Ubuntu 10.4

Here is the site where you can download Iscan program:
AVASYS Corporation web site to download Iscan
Once you download it and try to run it, it might ask you for a missing library that needs to be installed. It depends on your destripution or Ubuntu release version. I am using 10.04 on my computer. If you get that message, here is the link to go and download this library from Debian site

Debian web site download page
Install the library then re-run the iscan program and you are done, enjoy. Just one more thing when you run the Iscan for the first time you will need to run it as root, to be able to search and find your scanner.

I have a pro 23 hand held scanner it scan but I only pick to weather channel. Thanks, George

You will need to program in your local channels - ANALOG ONLY will work, not Digital. I suggest you go to "Radio Refererence DOT com" and go to their database; select your state, then your county, and it will list many frequencies for you to program to your radio. Also, SOME, not many, but SOME, Radio Shacks actually have a ham radio guy working there that can help you program your radio or help you 'CLONE' it from another identical radio. Good luck, and let me know how it goes. Happy New Year my friend.

I cannot find the code for my (ilo) brand TV from Wal-Mart and after the scan the scanner does not pick up on a channel I know is there. My friend has the working channel on his digital TV, but it...

try the Funai codes look on the back of your tv and see if Funai made it if so try ther codes. My Magnavox converter box wont pick up chanel 10 here for some reasion says no ok on all of the other chanels. Now if you have the orginal remote you should be able to go into the menu and go to add/delet and add that chanel to the scan if it has been deleted for some reasion.

V-scan channels missing

Sounds like all that is happening is that the channels are locked out, you need to go through manually and unlock them. I have the same scanner and that is what I needed to do.

The very part of your scanner that makes it a scanner is inop. YOU can find it but IT won't scan. Back to radio shack for warranty before they change their mind.
