All the channels are locked out so I can not scan


Hi Loris,

First, you turn on the radio, then press Mon/Hold key, then press No. [1] key. if your scanner is programmed, you should see the frequency displayed on the screen, example: 162.9875MHz, also on the screen you will see L/O icon, press L/O key and it will no longer show, then press Mon/Hold key and you'll go to channel [2], follow the above steps until you've unlocked all channels that are programmed in your radio scanner, when complete, press scan and your scanner will stop on any transmission it receives.

If, however, you have not programmed any frequencies into your scanner, all you'll get as a frequency reading: 000.0000MHz, meaning you won't hear anything.

Programming frequencies is easy, but you need to have a hard copy of your favorite frequencies for your location, these can be obtained from: www.radioreference.com where every USA state is covered, just copy and paste into any word processor and print out.

You need to do the following to program.

Press the [Prog] key, then select the channel to program to, then enter the frequency (key by key) leaving nothing out, that is as it's printed on the frequency list including the [.] decimal point, then press [Delay] key, then press [L/O] key (if icon is shown on display), then press [Prog] key again to go to the next channel, continue to follow the above steps until you have enough frequencies programmed to listen to.

Only select frequencies for your location, as some will not be available even if in your state.

I hope I have been of help to you.

Cheers,
Peter

How do i deleate old frequencies off radio shack pro 39 scanner


Hi.

You can try pressing pgm and then enter 000.0000 and hit enter. If it does not work on your scanner model, you have to enter a new frequency over the old one. I don't know for your scanner but a lot of models won't allow you to "erase" a frequency. You can also use the L/O button to skip this frequency in scanning mode.

If you want to reset all programming to factory settings (unprogrammed) turn on your scanner and hold the clear button while inserting a paperclip in the little hole right of the power jack. Release the clear button and your screen should appear. Your scanner is all unprogrammed.

I have reset my uniden bc scanner and am trying to re porgram frequencies in i press hold, put in frequency number , press func. and then prgm. and it keeps telling me error. What could be wrong?


First, be sure that the frequency that you're trying to enter is withjin the scanner's tuning range. The ERROR message will appear if you enter an invalid frequency.

Second, follow this sequence to program a known frequency:
- Power the scanner ON.
- Press HOLD.
- Enter the number of the channel you wish to program.
- Press the Func and Pgm keys (channel number will display).
- Enter the frequency, including the decimal point.
- Press E to enter your information into the scanner's memory.

LOCK ALL CHANNEL


If all channels are showing the lockout icon, and all are displaying the frequency 000.0000, you just need to program the scanner. Entering a frequency will remove the lockout.

If all are showing lockout and programmed frequencies, and the scanner will not function, you need to initialize it. This procedure will erase all data that you have programmed into the scanner and restore it to original factory settings.

- Turn the scanner OFF, then power it ON again. "Multi-system Trunking Scanner" shows on the display.
- Press 0
- Press 1
- Press ENT
"Initializing please stand by" shows on the display for about 5 seconds.

Do not turn the scanner OFF until initializing is complete and the display shows "M000" on the top line and "Bank 0 Ch 0" on the third line.

How do you set up the scanner to scan police and ems channels


First you'll need a list of frequencies to program. For a comprehensive database of active frequencies in your area, visit:

www.RadioReference.com

Once you've selected your frequencies, power the scanner ON and

1. Press E/PGM to enter the program mode (the scanner turns on the
PGM icon).

2. If the current channel is not the one you want to program, enter the
memory number then press HOLD.

3. Enter the frequency including the decimal point, then press E/PGM.

4. To program the next memory, press  or  and repeat step 3. To
program a different memory, repeat from step 2.

5. To exit program mode, press HOLD or SCAN or change the scanner’s mode.

Notes:
• Any frequency you program replaces the previous memory contents.
• If you enter a frequency you have already stored in a different
memory in Step 3, the scanner beeps and displays the channel
where you have previously stored the frequency. If you want to store
the frequency anyway, press E/PGM a second time in Step 3.
• To clear the contents of a memory, enter “0” in Step 3.
• Channels you program are automatically unlocked (see
“Locking/Unlocking Memories) and have Delay turned on (See
“Setting Channel Delay”).

I get all channels locked out. How do I unlock the channels.


You are pressing the "scan" button in the upper left hand position and getting all channels locked out? Correct?
If you haven't programmed any frequencies the channels will stay locked out. Get your local frequencies by doing a search for police scanner frequencies. Once you have gotten the information for your area press the "PGM" button on the lower right hand side of the key pad. Input your 1st frequency ###.#### then press "ENTER". Press "PGM"key again and enter your 2nd frequency then "ENTER" again. Repeat as often as you wish to enter more frequencies.
When you are done, (you can stop any time) press the "SCAN" button in the upper left hand position and you are in business. You are supposed to be able to choose which memory position you wish to use but I haven't tried to figure that one out.
If you need the manual for the radio go to radioshack site and do a search for PRO95 and it will come up in PDF format.
Hope this helps. I have owned the pro 95 for maybe 6 or 7 years and after doing a little programming yesterday the thing is much more to my liking. It scanns quicker and scans the channels I wish to listen to.

My scanner is stuck on ''all chanels locked out'' I don't know how this happened. I have tried resetting and iitializing but nothing is working.


If you reset and/or re-initialized the scanner, then you quite possibly have deleted the frequencies you had programmed in it. Can you see any frequencies showing when you have the scanner in manual mode? If so, try pressing the lockout button, which usually is marked with something like L/O. If L/O appears on the screen, then that channel is locked out. Press the L/O key again to unlock it.

Need to know how to program a radio shack pro-94 handheld scanner


press the "prog" key followed by the "Trunk" key then the number "1" key.
Press the "down arrow" key until you see the initials Ed on the screen
Press the "E" key.
Enter the frequencies (including the decimals)
you must press the E key and the Prog key after each frequency, after you finish entering your frequencies, press the scan key.

If you need to clear your scanner, turn it off, press and hold down the number 2 and number 9 keys, while holding them down turn the scanner back on, "clear" should start flashing on the screen, once "clear" stops flashing you can enter the frequencies.

Programming error BCT8 Uniden


Hello.
Back to answer my own question.
I just found the problem. If you try to program one of these scanners (Uniden BCT8) and you keep getting a "pr9-loc" message every time you try to enter a frequency and "M-LOCK" is showing in the upper right corner of the display press and hold the M-Lock (E) key until it beeps twice and "M-LOCK" disappears from the display. You're now set to program.
Keith.
