Question about Radio Shack Pro-96 Scanner

PRO 96 Scanner

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. Thank you

    My PRO-96 Scanner now reads ALL Channels Locked out! I think I read the manual and even pushed the reset button on the side and can't get the scanner to work again. Also, when it was scanning all 10 channels on the top, it seemed to skip over number 4 and 5.

    My email address is [email protected] it that helps

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.

Is the Attenuation set to Global on? That may be the issue.

Osd is saying the main menu is locked how do i unlock


Win Tyler,
Information on resolving your locked screen on your LCD is listed below.
In the TV Menu Settings menu you can
select TV Button lock to lock the TV
Menu and the side panel buttons. When
this option is enabled, only the power
button functions. To unlock the TV Menu
and side panel buttons:
1. Press the Menu button on the TV. A message appears stating that the TV is locked
2. While the message is on the TV, press the channel up and volume increase button
simultaneously.
If you are using the DVI connector, you may need to verify the following settings:
Source - The default setting is Auto. The T V automatically detects if a computer (PC) or video
device is being used. If the image does not display correctly, you can select the source, PC or
Video, depending on the device you are using.
Color - The default color space is RGB. If the colors are not displaying correctly, you can change
the setting to YUV.
You can download and view the online users manual from the link below.

LG 37LT 75 faults Picture freezes everything locks only solution is to pull plug and then restart. Occasionally just get black screen whaen changing channels. Recordings failing due to "time setting error"...


Call out an LG engineer, there are software updates which control the operations of the TV, it would appear that you have an older version & need this to be updated.

Radio Shack Scanner Model # 20-527 1000 channel triple trunking


The manuals for radio shack equipment are available on the Radio Shack website. I just viewed and downloaded the one for the 20-527 last night and that is an older unit. In the search window, put in the Cat number, and searched it. If this doesn't work search the word manuals and try that. You can totally re-initialize the 20-527, those instructions are there too. The disadvantage; you loose all your programmed information and will need to start over. Which is ok if you'd like to start fresh again.

Channels locked out


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!

Best wishes,
Farnk
