Question about Radio Shack Pro-2096 Base Scanner
After trimming the ribbon cable as you had recommended, this seemed to fix the problem... but it's now 3 mos after I did the "repair" and the display has once again disappeared. (display back light still works.. just not LCD characters appearing) Any other suggestions?
I called Radio Shack Corporate (customer service) in Texas and stated I had a display problem with my 2055. The display lit up but displayed no data. I further stated that I had researched this problem and found it to be systemic in the unit itself with MANY others experiencing the very same problem. I was told they would have an area representative call me to discuss the problem. The very next day I got a call from my LOCAL Radio Shack store requesting I bring the unit in and that Radio Shack would repair or replace it at no charge to me. PROBLEM SOLVED!

Since the repair fixed it for 3 months and it appears to be doing the same thing, repeat the process but be sure to put anti-oxident solution (if Radio Shack does not have, try a real radio parts store in person or online) on the ends of the cable so the metal will not "rust" so soon.
