Ok, this is an odd problem. Some days my scanner, when I press the scan button, will pick up all the frequencies I have, then sometimes it doesn't. I've adjusted the squelch, did everything I could. I've reset everything, re-entered the frequencies, and still, the same problem. I know that it's picking up the frequencies, because when I switch to manual, i can hear everything, but the moment I hit can, NOTHING. Any help would be awesome
Check the ATT settings ... when att is showing I don't believe the scanner is as "sensitive" as it is when ATT is showing this is explained in the manual.... if I remember correctly it is toward the back of the manual

Make sure you do have frequencys stored. Turn it on, push button to clock, then press bitton to scanner, then press hold, then the channel # you want it in, press hold again, now press e, enter frequency, press e again, if you want more channels press up, press e. Do this until channels are full or what you want. Then press scan if radio is ok it should scan.
All these cat scanners work pretty mich the same
There are several ways. First, turn the scanner on and adjust the squelch so that it is quite. Then press the manual button to flip through the 16 channels. Stop on the channel you want to program. Then, type in the frequency followed by the "E" key on the lower right of the keypad. Hit the manual button to move to the next channel and repeat the process above.
You can also "scan" for a frequency. Here is how: Use the manual button to get to one of the channels. Now type in "120.0 followed by pressing the "limit" button. Now type in "125.0" and press the "limit" button again. Now press the "scan" button. The scanner will now search all frequencies between 120.0 and 125.0 on that channel and will pause and listen should a transmission happen. You can do this "limit" scan for any frequency range that the scanner is capable of receiving. Once you hear a transmission, you can press the "hold" button to stay on that received frequency. Pressing the "E" button will lock that frequency into that channel.
Hi, my name is John. Try to program some frequency,s in it. Get them here. <a href="http://www.RadioFreq.com">www.RadioFreq.com</a> or <a href="http://www.RadioReference.com">www.RadioReference.com</a> ...instructions are #1. Press the E/PGM button. #2. Enter the frequency you want. Press the E/PGM button. #3. To program frequency, press the up- down arrow. #4. To exit, press the HOLD or SCAN button...... hope this was helpful....
To enter a known frequency into your scanner: - Power the scanner ON - Press the MAN key to stop scanning - Press MAN repeatedly to select the channel to program - Enter the desired frequency, including the decimal point - Press E to enter your data into the scanner's memory
Repeat the process for other frequencies, and press the SCAN button when you're finished programming.
More detailed programming steps are presented in the factory operating manual, which you can download/print, free of charge, here:

Oddly, your scanner does not include this feature - which is standard on nearly all scanners. It does, however, let you search pre-programmed services (police,marine, etc.) or search up or down from a designated frequency. To do the latter:
1. Repeatedly press SCAN/MAN until MAN appears. 2. Enter the desired channel number you want to use as a starting point for the tune. Then press SCAN/MAN again. 3. Press TUNE/CLEAR to start tune. PGM appears. 4. Hold down the up or down arrow for about 1 second to tune up or down. The arrow appears and the scanner searches in the specified direction. 5. When the scanner finds an active frequency, it stops searching and displays the frequency. 6. To search for another active frequency, hold down the up or down arrow for about 1 second.
Need the manual for your scanner? You can download/print it here:
Sounds like you may have accidentally pressed the "LOCK" button. If there's a "key" icon showing, press the LOCK button at the bottom left of your keyboard, and hold it in until the icon disappears. In case you need it, here is a link to the operating manual for your scanner:
If your still having the problem, it could be that the transmitter for that freq lost some of it's power, so your scanner cannot pick up a clear signal. If everything else is working ok, that's my guess. Hope this helps,,, Mechanic
