My scanner suddenly stopped working when I use the adapter. At first I thought it was an adapter problem - but bought a new one and it does not work either. The scanner works on batteries - but that is very expensive. Is it possible to have this repaired at a reasonable cost?
I have the same problem with my pro-79 scanner. The adapter from my Uniden cordless phone works on my scanner, but then the phone won''t work.
I have rechargeable batteries but they don't stay charged very long in the scanner. I know this didn't solve your problem but thought I would let you know about the cordless phone adapter.

Your pro 95 takes the same yellow rechargable battery pack as the pro 97. It is available at the site listing below. It is their #100-006. It cost 5.99 plus 10.95 shipping. I ordered it 4 days ago and got it two days ago. You may be able to save on shipping by calling them and requesting some sort of slower shipping.
I have a Radio Shack Pro 97 Scanner that I received as a present 1-1/2 years ago. It was working just fine and then suddenly there was no squelch or volume. The keys make noise when pushed, but there is no sound for the squelch or volume. The scanner scans the frequencies but does not stop and play. I went on line and found that other people were having the same problems. I went back to the store that the unit was purchased from and received no help what so ever, they said it’ s off warranty and I was out of luck, nice way to do business??. I think that something that cost as much as this should not be junk after a short period of time. I hope you can help me with this problem I do like radio shack, but I can’t afford to buy items that don’t stand up. Sincerely Greg Stevens e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
I have the same issue, was working fine, then the scan works but never stops on any freq. nor does the squelch make any sounds. The only sound is the key tones, I have reset the unit and tried new batteries and a different antena. still nothing? any ideas?
Are you using batteries or an AC/DC adapter?
The only time I've seen the voices get distorted on my Pro 97 was when the batteries were about to die.
If you're using an AC/DC adapter in some way to power yours, maybe there is something electronically wrong with your Pro 97.
This is not intended to get you to throw it away.
