    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.
