Radio Shack Scanner Model # 20-527 1000 channel triple trunking

Evidently my grandchildren pushed buttons on my scanner and now all of the channels are locked out. Message states " All channels Locked Out" Can anyone tell me how to get then unlocked. I have asked Radio Shack and they have been unable to help me.

    cannot receive anything but weather. All attempts to scan or program get readout "all channels locked out". Have tried "power off-2,9-power on" and disconnecting power, but alas, to no avail.

The manuals for radio shack equipment are available on the Radio Shack website. I just viewed and downloaded the one for the 20-527 last night and that is an older unit. In the search window, put in the Cat number, and searched it. If this doesn't work search the word manuals and try that. You can totally re-initialize the 20-527, those instructions are there too. The disadvantage; you loose all your programmed information and will need to start over. Which is ok if you'd like to start fresh again.

I NEED SCANNER CODES?


It depends on your location. Try this link http://www.radioreference.com/apps/db

You will also need to know if your state and city switched to digital.
If not then it should work fine, but if they did you will need a new scanner because you have an analog scanner. There is a big push to switch over to digital radios in police, firefighter, military because it's more secure to use.

What is causing the scanner to stick on a channel?


Did you change the squelch while the scanner stops? even what looks like noise, can stop the scanner from going to the next frequency.

LOST MY MANUAL TO MY UNIDEN BEARCAT BC142XL CAN I GET A FREE REPLACEMENT


The manual isn't online to my knowledge however I did find a guide on how to program it.
"Turn it on. Push the "MANUAL" button to stop it from scanning.

Push number 1, then push "MANUAL" again. This should leave you on
channel one.

Using the keypad enter the frequency you want to monitor, then push
"E." Press "REVIEW" at anytime to see what frequency is programmed
there. If the review button flashes 000.0000 on the LED readout
display, you might be entering an invalid frequency. Refer to the list
of acceptable frequencies in the Frequency Range Bands below.

Push "MANUAL" to step to channel number two. Enter the frequency. Push
"E." Push "MANUAL" to step to channel three. Repeat this process until
all the (10) channels are full, or you've run out of frequencies to
enter.

Push "SCAN" to start automatically scanning the frequencies. The
radio will stop when it hears someone talking, and resume scanning two
seconds after the conversation has stopped.

Frequency Range Bands:

20 to 29.7 MHz (10 Meter "Ham" Band)
29.7 to 50 MHz (VHF Low Band)
50 to 54 MHz (6 Meter Amateur Band)
136 to 144 MHz (Military Land Mobile)
144 to 148 MHz (2 Meter "Ham" Band)
406 to 420 MHz (Federal Government Land Mobile)
420 to 450 MHz (70cm "Ham" Band)
450 to 470 MHz (UHF Standard Band)
470 to 512 MHz (UHF "T" Band)"

I just aquired a Regency R 4010 portable scanner and am looking for the frequency range and programing instructions.


Turn scanner on.
Make sure Key Pad is set to ON.
Press the manual button until the Channel display shows the channel you want to program (i.e. 1 thr 10)
On the key pad enter the freqency and hit the E key when done.
Hit the Manual key to select the next Channel you want to program.
Repeat process.
When finished hit the scan button.
If you want to see what freqency is programmed for a channel hit the Manual button until you reach the desired channel then hit the Review button.
If you want to lockout a channel (i.e. a channel that continuously broadcasts like the National Weather Service, hit the Manual button until you reach the desired channel then hit the L/O button. Hitting it again will unlock the channel.

I LOST MY MANUAL TO MY UNIDEN BEARCAT BC142XL CAN I GET A FREE REPLACEMENT?


A number of scanner manuals can be found online however I don't know the difficulty of finding it for this unit. More than likely if you need printed material sent to you it will cost you.

To program the BC142xl 10-channel scanner:

Press the Manual button. Continue to keep pressing the Manual button until you are at one of the ten channels you wish to program the frequency into

Press the E button

Enter the frequency you want to store in this channel

Press the E button - Your frequency is now stores in this channel.

To later see what frequencies you have stores use the Review button.
