    My scanner has completely locked me out. I tried resetting without any results- it just comes back to where it was. It doesnt respond to any keypad entry so I cant initialize. Just for the sake of it I replaced the batteries....nothing.

    All I am left with is a white noise generator! I am rather disappointed with this receiver since it has hardly been used and therefore never abused.

    Are you saying you can not fix this and have to bring it back to the store?

    My pro-96 is showing all locked out...I bought it to listen to Philadelphia Police which is an 800 mhz Motorola trunked system... It worked for 3 years or so and then it locked out one of the channels by itself. I reset it...and now...i tried to upload the freqs using win96 and even that doesnt work anymore. Do i have a probelm with hardware in the scanner? i seem to be able to enter stuff manually by the keypad...but that is really slow and tedious...any ideas...its out of warranty so I can't do that.

If you had your scaaner for less than a year, you should return it to the place that you purchased the unit T will be still under warranty. My guess would be, you have a bad logic circuit.

I have the BC370CRS SCANNER I am trying to clear all the memory and reset it. It is telling me to hold down 2, 9, and hold and turn it on. That is not working. Can you please tell me another way to do...

Locking/Unlocking Banks When you are scanning conventional banks, the scanner displays the digit corresponding to all unlocked banks. To lock out a bank so that the scanner does not scan its channels, press the letter that corresponds to the bank. The bank's letter disappears from the display. To unlock locked-out banks, simply press that bank's letter again. The bank's letter appears on the display and the scanner includes that bank when scanning. Note: You cannot lock out all banks. One bank must be unlocked at all times. Locking/Unlocking Channels To lock out a channel so that the scanner does not stop on it while scanning, press L/O when the scanner is stopped on that channel, or manually select the channel and press L/O. To unlock the channel, manually select it and press L/O again. Restoring All Locked Out Channels You can restore all locked-out channels in a bank only when the bank is selected for scan. Follow these steps to restore all locked-out channels in a bank. 1. If you de-selected the bank, press SCAN then press the bank's letter. 2. Press MANUAL. 3. Hold down L/O for about 2 seconds. The scanner beeps twice and unlocks all To delete a stored frequency, press 0 then press E. Channels with no frequencies are automatically locked out hope this helps

Wanted to program frequencies into the scanner but it is frozen where i cannot go inot manual and scan. All other functions work such as weather channel lock, light, etc. Capitol P on the left side of...

This is a new one on me. Press the review key to see if there is a frequency programmed on what could be channel 8 (P missing a segment of the display). Press the manual button then the period twice. If all else fails, open the case and push the reset button.

Bearcat scanner lockout on and i want it off

You didn't provide a model number, so this response is a little generic and applies mainly to late model Bearcats. To release an individual programmed channel from lockout, stop the scanner on that channel (select and press MANUAL) then press the Lockout (L/O) key. Any unprogrammed channel, displaying 000.0000, will show as locked out. Programming a frequency into it automatically releases the lockout. If all channels are showing as locked out you may need to reset the scanner. The reset procedure varies my model, so I'll need the model number to describe the steps.

All channels are locked out

You might go to this site and try the "reset" mode. This will clear all channels, but may allow your scanner to once again work properly after frequencies are put back in. At least it costs nothing to try!....Good luck!
