Re: Pro-82 buttons dead and won't reset!! Yikes!
If a simple reset will not correct the error, you may need to re-initialize the scanner (but of course this will delete all your stored memories and presets).
To Reset - push a pin through a hole at the side of the scanner and press on the recessed button inside;
To Initialize - power off, press TUNE button (leftmost third from the bottom), without releasing TUNE button power on and do a RESET again a bit longer. Wait a couple of seconds (till after the LCD display blinked). Release RESET button then release TUNE button. Try the scanner.
If buttons don't work, you may need to verify that KEYLOCK is off.
A more comprehensive instruction is detailed at http://support.radioshack.com/support_electronics/doc69/69887.pdf
If this does not work, you may need to seek the services of a qualified professional as it needs circuit analysis in the logic section.
Good luck and kind regards.

Check your antenna connections, if the connections are good then try a different antenna. Most likely that is the problem if it's the scanner. If your trying to scan Public Safety Frequencies you may be running into a situation where they have gone Digital and your scanner is Analog or they may have encrypted their frequency or control channels so the scanners won't work.
Your reset wiped out all programmed frequencies, leaving "000.0000" in each channel. That automatically sets the LOCKOUT icon, but it will clear when you program a frequency into the channel. You can download and print your scanner manual here:
Performing a RESET will not clear/erase frequencies or other data programmed into the scanner. If the RESET doesn't work though, you may need to INITIALIZE the scanner. That procedure will clear all programmed data and return the scanner to its "as new" state. Need the manual for your PRO-82? You canb download/print it here:
you may need to play with the squelch. and/also hold down the light/key button until the key goes away but mess with the squelch after you get rid of the lock. you want the squelch as far left without it stopping and making static noise
go to cityfreq.com and see if the frequencies in your area have changed. you might even need a new anteanna radio shack should have a really good one for 20 buck. a little longer than the original but good
