Sounds like the motherboard is corrupted. Please try these steps again. Thanks!! Happy Scanning!!

I need to ask you this. Normally one bank can't be closed.
You may need a soft or hard reset. Here's some reading and instructions.
Please use this first!
resetting your scanner
1. Turn off your scanner, and then turn it on again.

2. Insert a pointed object into the reset hole on the back
of the scanner. Then, gently press and release the reset
button. Pressing reset does not clear the scanner's
working memory or the V-Scanner folders.

If this doesn't work here's step two! CAUTION. THIS WILL ERASE EVERYTHING, but it MAY Fix the Problem!!

Initializing your scanner clears all information stored in your
scanner's working memory. Initialize your scanner only when
you are sure it is not working properly. V-Scanner memory is
not affected when you initialize the scanner.

1. Turn off the scanner, and turn it on again. First, the DSP
boot version, and then Welcome To Digital Trunking appears.

2. Press 0. The following messages appear on the display:

System Tests

Select Test
Exits if no
Key Press

3. Press 1. The following messages appear on the display:

Factory Init
Erase Memory
ENTER if Yes
CL to EXIT

4. Press ENT. The following messages appear on the display:

Initializing
Clr Main Mem
V-Scan is OK
Please Wait

5. Do not turn off your scanner until the initialization is
complete. When the initialization is complete, M000 and
Bank 0 Ch 00 appear on the display.

I have a radio shack pro 2096 that worked for years came home one day and no digital channels come thru anymore haven't touched a thing?!!


They have probably 'rebanded'- meaning that they moved the control channels. Go to radio reference dot com and see what the control channels are. IF they moved the 3 or 4 control channels and alternate control channels to the 700MHz range, then the PRO96 and PRO2096 probably cannot track it anymore and you will need a newer scanner from Uniden Bearcat or from Whistler. Let me know if there's anything else I can do to help.

Won't trunk track. Searches frequencies, but will not scan talk groups.


This radio will only work on analog trunked systems, if it is a digital or P25 system, you need to upgrade to a digital scanner like the PRO96, or newer.

When in the MO mode, I hear nothing. In the FM mode, I hear everything. I want just to listen to local FD. I have their codes loaded in. Just doesn't seem to scan the channels when in MO. What am I doing...


MO is for monitoring MOtorola trunking systems and will only work if you have programmed a system into your scanner. Most fire departments are using conventional, (FM) transmissions, not trunked systems - mainly so that volunteers and neighboring departments can follow the action and respond if needed.

I NEED HELP CHANGING MY GREETER WHEN I TURN MY SCANNER ON


Only a few units can do that, such as the PRO92, PRO96, etc, and you need to buy the software and software interface cable. There is a guy named "Don Starr" who has written some really good programs to do that.
