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.

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.

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
