When you are scanning conventional banks, the scanner displays the digit corresponding to
all unlocked banks. To lock out a bank so that the scanner does not scan its channels, press
the letter that corresponds to the bank. The bank's letter disappears from the display.
To unlock locked-out banks, simply press that bank's letter again. The bank's letter
appears on the display and the scanner includes that bank when scanning.
Note: You cannot lock out all banks. One bank must be unlocked at all times.
To lock out a channel so that the scanner does not stop on it while scanning, press L/O
when the scanner is stopped on that channel, or manually select the channel and press L/O.
To unlock the channel, manually select it and press L/O again.
Restoring All Locked Out Channels
You can restore all locked-out channels in a bank only when the bank is selected for scan.
Follow these steps to restore all locked-out channels in a bank.
1. If you de-selected the bank, press SCAN then press the bank's letter.
2. Press MANUAL.
3. Hold down L/O for about 2 seconds. The scanner beeps twice and unlocks all
To delete a stored frequency, press 0 then press E. Channels with no frequencies are automatically locked out hope this helps
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.
Turn on unit.
Press MANUAL button.
Press MANUAL button again to select the channel you want to program.
Note the channel in the display. If there is a hyphenated symbol in the
upper left corner the channel has been locked out. Press the LOCKOUT
button once to remove the symbol or press the LOCKOUT button to lock a
channel out. To find out if there is a frequency programed into that
channel, press the PREVIEW button. Each digit of the frequency that is
stored in memory will be displayed in the LED display. To program a new
frequency into that channel, simply press the digits of the frequency
you want, including the decimal point. Press the "E" keypad key to
enter it into memory. If you get a "E" displayed in the LED display,
the frequency was entered wrong, is not a valid frequency or is out of
range for the scanner. Last but least, the scanner is not working
properly. If the channel is active, (communications going over it) set
SQUELCH to higher number, until you hear the communications or just
noise. To set the SQUELCH, select a channel that has only noise and
turn it down to the point the noise disappears. You make have to
readjust it to your liking. Once you have the channels programed you
can select the SCAN button to listen to all the channels or select the
MANUAL button to listen to just one channel. If there are channels that
you don't want to hear during the scan mode, go to MANUAL and select
the channel you don't want to hear and press LOCKOUT button. Then press
SCAN again it will only scan channels you want to hear.
Hi, It sounds to me like your keypad is locked. Pg 63 of your manual. ***using the keylock *** Once you program your scanner, you can protect it from accidental program changes by turning on the key lock feature. When the keypad is locked, the only controls that operate are FUNC, key , SQ, and VOL. You cannot activate the keylock while you are entering a frequency into a channel. To turn on the keylock, press FUNC then key . Key locked appears for about 1 second. Key locked appears when you press any key after locking the keypad. To turn off the keylock, press FUNC then key . The scanner beeps three times and Key unlocked appears. The only other choice I see if that does not work would be to initialize it. Pg 84 of your manual. Hope this helps you,, Mechanic
