There may be issues with the unit or the source of the signal. The scanner may have lost its sensitivity. There are a lot of articles on the unit about programming etc. The problem is that it takes special equipment to test the front end of the receiver. The company the made the scanner for Radio Shack was GRE in Japan. They moved to China and then closed, they have reopened and are now owned by Whistler.

Hi, might I suggest you sign up for Radio Reference dot com and you will need to have a digital trunking scanner for almost everything in the 4-county area- looks like only 1 PD and 1 fire channel will still work on an old scanner.
Here's a link to help you after you get set-up with Radio Reference:

First suggestion: never recharge batteries inside of a $400 scanner. Always charge them in a separate battery charger. Second, you can find those battery holders on e Bay and you could even try QRZ.com as a source. Okay?

Press 'scan' then press a number key to enable the group to scan.

Press and hold the Lock key for 3 seconds, then the 'key' should not show up in the display. Also, when you press 'scan' try pressing some of the number keys to turn-off and to switch on scanning banks. Okay?

You can get the Butler County frequencies after you setup an account at Radio Reference dot com, provided you have a scanner that can scan digital and analog. https://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/?ctid=2048

Make sure that the keypad isn't locked. See if there is a little key in the display. If yes, then hold down the lock key to unlock the keypad. Next, hit 'scan' and you will have to select a group to scan, so press the #1 or #2 button IF you have frequencies loaded into it. Can you press the WX button to hear the weather? Let me know. Good luck.

ONLY the old 49MHz models can be heard 'by accident'. Newer units are digital and can't be monitored.

If you did the hold down '2' '9' reset, there isn't much more you can do. I have tried pulling out the battery pack and putting in a jumper wire between both battery contacts inside the radio (with no battery) and turn it on and let it sit for 1/2 hour. That's about the last thing to try. Only other goofy thing could be you got 'sticky pop' on the 'manual' button, so the radio thinks you pushed the manual button as soon as you turn it on. Make sure that the rubber isn't stuck around the manual button. You could try a QTip with 70% alcohol around the edge of the MANUAL button, but you also might wipe off some lettering at the same time, so use caution. Good luck and let me know how it goes.

Your RAdio Shack store can help you order one. You can use the black holder, but cannot recharge batteries in the radio.
