NAAAH, don't reset it. Check the programing cable jack. It may have a bad solder joint or a bent element.

Your scanner should only enter the WIRED mode if you have a clone cable plugged into it. The only way to clear the problem is to RESET the scanner. Unfortunately this procedure will also erase all the frequencies that are programmed into the scanner. RESET is covered on page 54 of the scanner manual -- if you don't have yours you can download and print a copy here:

I don't know how to program the pro-84 scanner.


The best programming instructions for your scanner are in the factory manual that you can download and print, at no cost, here:

It appears to be locked in "wired" mode.....how do I clr this code? I have never attempted to hook the unit up to our computer so I don't know how the code has appeared.


The best way to clear this glitch is to RESET the scanner to original factory settings, but beware -- this action with erase all data that you have programmed into the scanner. The scanner is useless if locked in the WIRED mode though, so I recommend the RESET.

- Power the scanner OFF
- Press and hold the 2, 9 and HOLD keys while you power the scanner ON
- The word CLEAr will appear after about 3 seconds. Do not power the scanner OFF until this message is gone from the display.

If you don't already have it, you can download and print your scanner's operating manual here:

MY RADIOSHACK NASCAR PRO-84 SCANS THREW CHANNELS BUT STAYS STUCK ON ONE CERTAIN WEATHER CHANNEL AND WONT CONTINUE SCANNING AND I NEED TO NO HOW TO DELETE THAT CHANNEL COMPLETELY.


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.

When i turn my pro-84 handheld scanner it says


Your scanner should not enter the WIRED mode unless you have a data cable attached, so you will need to RESET the unit to restore normal operation. To do this, power the scanner OFF, then press and hold the 2, 9, and HOLD keys and power it back on.

NOTE: The RESET will erase/delete all data that you've programmed into the scanner, but it's the only way to clear your problem.

Need the manual for your scanner? You can download/print it here:

MY pro-94 said on the screen lu,red or something like that !


Could the display be saying "wired"? This is what it shows when it is in cloning or programming mode. If it is showing this and there is no programming or cloning cable attached, check the programming jack to see if it is damaged.

Stuck on scan mode


Hi, It sounds to me like your keypad is locked. Pg 63 of your manual.
***using the keylock ***
Once you program your scanner, you can protect it from accidental program changes by turning on the key lock feature. When the keypad is locked, the only controls that operate are FUNC, key , SQ, and VOL. You cannot activate the keylock while you are entering a frequency into a channel. To turn on the keylock, press FUNC then key . Key locked appears for about 1 second. Key locked appears when you press any key after locking the keypad.
To turn off the keylock, press FUNC then key . The scanner beeps three times and Key unlocked appears.
The only other choice I see if that does not work would be to initialize it. Pg 84 of your manual. Hope this helps you,, Mechanic
