It says it's locked; to click ok when unlocked, But it's not locked. How to reconcile?

The physical lock may be engaged on the scanner.

Turn the scanner upside down and look for a button that slides. There should be a locked padlock symbol to one side and an unlocked padlock to the other side. Make sure the switch is set to the unlocked padlock side.

When you are not using the scanner or if you are moving it, it is a good idea to engage the lock switch so that the mechanism inside is not jolted out of alignment if it is bumped by accident.

Scanner stuck at 000.0000 keys don't work

You may benefit by performing a reset or initialization of the scanner. The manual describes the procedure at the bottom of page 38.

You may lose previously stored frequencies if you reset or initialize the radio.

1. Turn off the scanner, then turn
it on again.
2. Insert a pointed object, such
as a straightened paper clip,
into the reset opening on the
side of the scanner. Then
gently press the reset button
inside the opening.

1. Turn off the scanner, then turn
it on again.
2. Hold down TUNE/CLEAR.
3. While holding down TUNE/
CLEAR, insert a pointed object
(such as a straightened paper
clip) into the reset opening on
the side of the scanner, then
gently press the reset button
inside the opening. The
display should turn off.
4. When the display turns on
again, release TUNE/CLEAR.

I hope this helps & good luck!

All channels are locked out. how do I get them unlocked

If all else fails, you can RESET or INITIALIZE the scanner to bring it back to normal operation.

- Power the scanner OFF
- Power the scanner back ON
- Insert a pointed object (paper clip, penpoint, etc.) into the RESET hole on the back of the scanner
- Gently press and then release the RESET button inside the hole.

NOTE: RESET will NOT erase the data that you've programmed into the scanner.

If RESET doesn't clear the problem, you can carry out the more drastic INITIALIZE process.

- Power the scanner OFF
- Power the scanner back ON
- Press 0 after the scanner completes its boot routine
- Press 1 after the menu appears
- Press ENT

DO NOT power the scanner OFF until the INITIALIZE process is complete (M000 and Bank 0 Ch 00 appear on the display). The INITIALIZE procedure will reset the scanner to original factory settings and erase all data that you have programmed.

I bought an i9 cell phone but now the side to unlock feature is not functioning, therefore I cant get inside the phone

Try doing a hard reset. You press the Home button and the Lock/Off button on top at the same time, you will see the off slider but keep pressing them until you see a gray apple. Then let GO. I hope this helps.

Pro=95 key pad does not work

Hi, Have you tried switching the key lock to OFF? This could be done by pressing FUNC (2nd button topmost) then keylock (leftmost bottom button), you will then hear KeyUnlocked confirmation of 3 beeps. A last effort is to try and reset the scanner done by powering off then on again, press on the recessed reset button inside a hole on the side of the scanner (try using a straightened paper clip). Hope this be of some idea/help. Post back how things turned up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

Permant child lock

Sorry man The only way I know to unlock it is with the original remote. They are available at You have to press the M or Mute button and the F or the Function button at the same time. If the remote you have has these buttons try them. Like I said if it doesnt work, you will need an original remote. See if anyone you know has one you can borrow or the store where you bought the TV, maybe they will let you borrow one. Good Luck
