  • Anonymous May 13, 2009

    I was listening to my Pro-97 and the batteries were low, I turned it off then next morning after replacing batteries, there was no receive audio, no squelch. Wnt to instant weather, seemed like it was scanning real fast thru weather channels, but still no audio. All other keys working. cheked EEPROM circuit, it checked fine, Had no other choice but to Initialize the scanner losing all my stored frequencies. That still did not fix problem. I am at a loss

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

Scanner will not move from the programmed Police channel


you may need to play with the squelch. and/also hold down the light/key button until the key goes away but mess with the squelch after you get rid of the lock. you want the squelch as far left without it stopping and making static noise

Pro 97 not working


This is just a guess but sounds like your antenna connection (inside the unit) has broken. If you use the antenna as a handle it will eventually break. Radio Shack will repair it for a flat fee of $40 (that was the price the last time I checked) plus shipping. Or if you are really good at soldering and have good eye sight, you can repair it your self.
Your local radioshack should be able to send it in for repair.
