Radio Shack no longer markets a charger/adapter made specifically for the PRO-82, but the 6-volt Enercell AC adapter with a size C Adaptaplug will work with your scanner. Radio Shack total retail for the pair is $30, and you can probably find them on line for even less. You might even luck out and find a compatible 6v wall wart on eBay.
Ok, are the batteries fresh? Did you make sure they are installed correctly? Have you tried an AC adapter plugged into the side of the unit? This bypasses the battery compartment and may work, indicating the problem area is within the battery compartment and or its wiring. I'd take it to radio shack and see if they will give a quick opinion, mabye letting you try a charger before you buy. Also, if nothing works, Radio Shack repairs Their scanners, often for a very reasonable price. been there, done that. Bst of luck!
Your pro 95 takes the same yellow rechargable battery pack as the pro 97. It is available at the site listing below. It is their #100-006. It cost 5.99 plus 10.95 shipping. I ordered it 4 days ago and got it two days ago. You may be able to save on shipping by calling them and requesting some sort of slower shipping.
I have the same problem with my pro-79 scanner. The adapter from my Uniden cordless phone works on my scanner, but then the phone won''t work.
I have rechargeable batteries but they don't stay charged very long in the scanner. I know this didn't solve your problem but thought I would let you know about the cordless phone adapter.
Are you using batteries or an AC/DC adapter?
The only time I've seen the voices get distorted on my Pro 97 was when the batteries were about to die.
If you're using an AC/DC adapter in some way to power yours, maybe there is something electronically wrong with your Pro 97.
This is not intended to get you to throw it away.
