Hit the scan button and it will come out of the weather band and start trunking again.

    I own the same scanner. Have it sitting right here. Thats exactly how you get it out of "WX"

    If you say it was stuck in "WX" you hit the scan button this will bring it out of "WX" and start trunking in bands 1-9 automatically. If it is still stuck the turn up the squelch. The question you listed I listed the solution. If a new problem arises then ask. These scanners are easy to use and for the question you asked there is only one solution. Hit scan.

The NOAA weather frequencies have constant broadcasts, so your scanner "locks" onto them. The only ways to prevent this are to either delete the weather frequency or lock it out. To delete, just program the frequency "0.0" (zero point zero) into the channel. To lock it out, press the L/O key while on the weather freq.

I can not get any sound out of my radio shack pro 97 scanner I turn the volume all the way up and hear a light uzzin sound I have it on the weather channel and no sounds my scanner saids all channels...

Nothing's wrong. All of your frequencies have been deleted (pre-programmed PLUS anything you entered yourself).
You'll need to re-enter all of the frequencies to get it working again.

Make sure channels are not locked out. It should say lo in lower case letters.
