Question about Radio Shack Pro-2096 Base Scanner

1 Answer

Novice / 1st time

I am having problems getting the scanner to work. I have downloaded the software and really don't know where to begin. The manual that came with it, is not too useful for someone who doesn't know much about scanners.

You are luck you even got a manual! Anymore most instructions are either on the CD or online.

First do not hook up the scanner(USB I assume) . Install the software first and follow the instructions for installing. The program should tell you when to hook up the scanner cable.

After that it is trial and error to learn the software for the scanner.
If you provide the scanner model I might be able to help more.

How do I use a Seiko electronic tuner?

Hi! Have you read the manual? That is a good place to begin. Maybe you did not get one (if you bought your tuner used, or found it, or stole it, or something). You did not mention your model number, but one of the really common ones is the SAT500. Here's a download site for its manual:
Just stay cool. Concentrate on one thing at a time. And take your time. You will soon become a competent user. I think you will find it pretty easy, once you get a good start. Truly.

Hi -- Hope this helps, it worked for me. Firstly, I strongly suggest you click and save the file, then run the app. The built-in software uninstaller in Windows often leaves garbage behind in folders, files, and the registry that can make future installations fail. REVO is really good at getting rid of ALL of the crap so a clean re-install is possible. The above link is for their totally free portable version -- no crap and you don\'t have to install anything to use it. That said, uninstall all the software, then open your device manager and locate the entry for your device, right-click and select uninstall. DO check the box that says "delete the driver software for this device" so that you will be starting clean. After uninstalling, unplug the USB cable to your device and reboot.
After the reboot, Do NOT plug in the USB cable yet -- First, insert the driver CD and start the setup program. Wait until the software tells you, then plug in the USB cable and continue following the on-screen directions. Once everything installs, it may tell you to reboot, if so, don\'t try using the device until you do. After the reboot (or after the install finishes if it doesn\'t make you reboot) you should be good to go again.
I have had this problem repeatedly when trying to re-install drivers for various HP Products, and this has (so far, anyway) worked for me in XP, Windows 7 and Windows 8.
Good Luck!

I cannot download my photos and movies from my FinePix S2900 to my computer. I have installed MyFinePix Studios. According to the owner's manual, once I plug my camera into the USB, MyFinePix Studios...

Paint Shop Pro grabbed mine using "Import from Scanner or Camera". They went to My Pictures and the first picture was on the PSP screen. See ya, FinePix software.

How do you program a radio shack to the 700mhz trunking chanels

You will probably have to use a '3rd party' SOFTWARE package. Mr. Donn Starr has written software for most of the GRE / Radio Shack scanners, and using his software will usually allow you to enter 700MHz frequencies. You will need the USB Scanner programming cable and software from Radio Shack, then search online for a link to get Don Starr's software. You might be able to try it out for free for a little while, but it is really worth the $30 for how easy it makes it to program your scanner once you get the doggone Radio Shack USB scanner programming cable configured to work with your computer. Let me know if you have more questions.

S500 install for MAC

Check out:

The latest Fujitsu ScanSnap V2.2 L11 drivers have been patched by me to work with S300, S500, S510 and fi-5110EOX/2/3 PC-based scanners for the MAC. No need to buy a new scanner. Just apply the patch and then send me a Christmas card! ;)

Hope this helps!
