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'sworking 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 yourscanner's working memory. Initialize your scanner only whenyou are sure it is not working properly. V-Scanner memory isnot affected when you initialize the scanner. 1. Turn off the scanner, and turn it on again. First, the DSPboot version, and then Welcome To Digital Trunking appears. 2. Press 0. The following messages appear on the display:System TestsSelect TestExits if no Key Press3. Press 1. The following messages appear on the display:Factory InitErase MemoryENTER if YesCL to EXIT4. Press ENT. The following messages appear on the display:InitializingClr Main MemV-Scan is OKPlease Wait5. Do not turn off your scanner until the initialization iscomplete. When the initialization is complete, M000 andBank 0 Ch 00 appear on the display.If that doesn't help. Please get it serviced. I do recommend to get a DSP Firmware Update for it. The download is free from RadioShack but the cable and software is not.I hope this helps and solves this problem.btw.. if you don't have the product manual http://support.radioshack.com/manuals/ome20-496.pdfYou will need Adobe reader or equivalent!!Happy Scanning!!
