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 can't turn off the squelch on my Radio Shack Digital Trunking scanner.


On all channels, or on one channel ? Some channels are "birdie" channels, check your user manual. Others are problem channels receiving false signals from computers, monitors, receivers, internet equipment, FAX machines, etc. If your in conventional mode, if in Digital mode the squelch is set by the processor, and I don't believe the squelch has any effect in that mode.

My scanner scans but local channels won't in.


If you are using the pre-programmed 155 frequencies,
  1. Turn the scanner OFF and then turn ON again.
  2. When the Multi-system Trunking Scanner appears, press PGM.
  3. Press 1
If this is not the issue, you most likley have the "bank" you want turned off. Press the "period" button while on that bank to turn it back on.

Use the up and down buttons to select the banks.

When scanner is turned on it says all channels are locked radio s


If this is a trunking scanner, then you can go to your local radio shack store and have them reprogram the scanner with your local frequencies. This does sometimes occur if the trunking is not set correctly.

Pro 95 dual trunk tracking scanner just stays on channel 3 does not scan up to the other 10 channels


the manual at "http://support.radioshack.com/manuals/ome20-525.pdf" (if you don't have it)
says that you may be in manual mode OR that the channel at 3 might be a "trunk guide", that means that the channel is used to send out digital permissions to the system for each radio in the unit(s) to use a certain freq. when they transmit. good luck!

Trunking frequencies


Did you initialize your scanner? If you did, then you also deleted your trunking banks (1-9). These are the banks that store the channels that were inputted by you. The scanner will display "All channels locked out," when all of these banks are empty. You may have to put the frequencies in again. I suggest using win97. There is a 30day trial. This is the only program that I know of that will work with this scanner.

The pre-programmed channels should still be there. If you press and hold the scan button for a couple of seconds you should see the signal stalker running.

Good luck.
