Pro 84 locked up says

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:

How come my pro-84 scanner wouldn't hold the mrn frequency last weekend in richmond. Kept getting an error message. pressed hold, entered the station 454.000 and then hold again and kept getting err

454.000 is not a station, but a frequency. it is 454 Mhz. or 454.000 Khz. If no station is transmitting on that frequency, the scanner only will produce a hiss. Check the manual, to see how you can put in a frequency, just to monitor. Put the sq, so you just don't hear the noise and wait till any transmitter will use that frequency.

I have broken the six

Any Radio Shack store should be able to order one for you Before you go that route though, check eBay. The battery holders come in several shapes, but you might find one that will work for you - at a bargain price.

I have a pro 84

Sorry, but the NASCAR label on these scanners is little more than a scam. There are no special features that make race scanning easier or organized -- they just cover the frequency range that cars and pit crews operate on.

Pro 84 scanner how to search for frequencys

You can download a copy of the user's manual here if you need it. It doesn't look like you can set your own scan range, but you can have the scanner search by pre-defined service. Here's what the manual says about searching:

service search

You can search for weather, ham, marine, aircraft, or
police (fire/emergency) transmissions without
knowing the specific frequencies used in your area.
The scanner is preprogrammed with all the
frequencies allocated to these services. To use this
feature, press FUNC + SVC. SRCH appears and the
scanner searches starting with the weather service
bank. To select a different service bank, repeatedly
press FUNC + SVC. Service mode appears on the
display.
When the scanner stops on a transmission, quickly
press HOLD to stop searching and listen to the
transmission. HOLD appears. In this mode, you can
press FUNC + ^ or FUNC + v to step through
the frequencies.
To release the hold and continue searching, press
HOLD. Or, if you did not press HOLD, simply press
FUNC + ^ or FUNC + v to continue searching.

It goes on to explain how to store frequencies as you find them while searching.

Looking for a 20-047 USB cable or a 20-289 serial

Go to the links below to get the cable.

http://www.radioreference.com/apps/classifieds/showproduct.php/product/2247

http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=4233363

You need either the Radio Shack PC interface cable 20-047 or the GRECOM USB cable. Both are, unfortunately, out of production and not available through any outlet that I could find. You might want to check with Radio Shack stores in your area, though, as one or more of them might still have the cable in stock. Another possible source is the PRO-97 owners group on Yahoo.com.
