Main screen has message that states "all" channels locked out! I have done everything that manual said do and still get the same message. This is my first experience with a scanner of this quality and no doubt I am scanner illiterate. Detailed info on how to solve this would be greatly appreciated.
I had the same problem. I called Radio Shack and they said there were no channels were programed to scan. I am very new at this so I would be able to help you program but call Radio Shack at 18008437422 and hit option 2 twice. The person I got on the phone was great. Just be sure to have the numbers you want to program in front of you.

If there is no frequencies on your scanner it will lock all channels out. if all your frequencies are on one bank and you accidentally hit that bank number and turn it off it will lock out all channels. If that's the case just hit that bank no. back on and they will unlock.
You are referring to banks, not channels. When bank 0 is active, then you push 0 to de-activate it, you have now removed all your banks from the scan list. To re-activate any bank, just press any number. This is confusing because locking out a channel and removing a bank from the scan list are two very different operations but use the same terminology.
If this is a trunking scanner, then you can go to your local radio shack store and have them reprogram the scanner with your local frequencies. This does sometimes occur if the trunking is not set correctly. [email protected]
http://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/?ctid=1485 Make note of radio reference.com......This is probably the best resource for frequencies in the United States - and it's free! It is particularly helpful with info on digital trunking and how to program your pro 96 for your specific area. Where I live in Wake County, North Carolina EVERYTHING is now trunked digitally and I found radio reference very helpful.....Happy scan ning!
Mrs. Santa brought me a new PRO-97 yesterday. I'm new to this - just wanted an aircraft frequency scanner, but got the whole shameal. I had a bad AC adapter and attempted to fix the power problem as directed in the manual by re-initializing the scanner. That blew all memory away.
I received the feared All Channels Locked Out message and through a little research and fiddling, realized the scanner was pre-programmed. An Addendum came with the scanner with instructions to reload the 155 pre-programmed frequencies: 1) Turn off the scanner and then turn it on again. 2) When 'Multi-system Trunking Scanner' appears, press PGM. 3) Press 1.
This will reload the pre-programmed frequencies erased by the re-init. Press scan and it'll be as new as outta the box!
