I want to clear all frequencys out of scanner

Turn off the scanner.
While holding down 2, 9, and Hold, turn on the
scanner. It takes about 3 seconds to initialize
and "CLEAr" appears.
The above is from the "Resetting the Scanner" section on page 53 of the manual.

Lost owners manuel. need code install instructions. and also how to clear off all old codes

There is no general reset function that will clear all of the frequencies (they're not codes) from your scanner, but there are two ways to clear individual frequencies:
1. Programming "0.0" (zero point zero) into a channel will remove the programmed frequency.
2. Programming a new frequency into any channel will remove/override the previously programmed frequency.

You can download and print the manual for your scanner, at no cost, here:

I have a radio shack hyperscan 200 channel pro-2039 programmable scanner. How do I erase ALL the stored frequencies so I can start over again?

You can initialize the scanner to delete all information that you've programmed into it and return it to its original factory settings. To do this:

1. Turn the scanner OFF, then turn it ON again.
2. Press and hold down the CLEAR key and insert a pointed object, such as a paperclip or the point of a pen, into the RESET opening in the back of the scanner, and press the button inside the opening.
3. Release RESET. When information reappears on the scanner's display, release the CLEAR key.

NOTE: You must release the RESET button before releasing the CLEAR key.

Also note that this procedure may not be necessary. Programming a new frequency into a channel automatically deletes the frequency previously stored in that channel.

How to clear all my frequencies from my portable scanner

To clear all information that you've programmed into the scanner you can perform a RESET to original factory settings:

1. Turn off the scanner.
2. While holding down the 2 and 9 keys, turn on the
scanner. CLEAR flashes for about 5 seconds as
the scanner clears its memory.
Note: Do not turn off the scanner again until CLEAR
stops flashing. Otherwise, the scanner might not clear its memory properly.

How do clear the scanner to re program it

Programming a frequency into a channel clears the previous channel entry, so there's really no need to "clear" the scanner for reprogramming. To eliminate an unwanted frequency, you can either press the LOCKOUT key to prevent the scanner from stopping on a specific channel, or you can "zero" a channel:

1. Press SCAN/MAN to stop
2. Use the number keys to enter
the channel number (1-200)
you want to clear.
3. Press PGM. F=C appears.
4. Press 0 then ENT. The
frequency number changes to
000.0000 to indicate the
channel is cleared.

How do I reset the scanner frequencies all at once; what is the button combination to push

There is no master reset/clear function on this scanner, but with only 10 channels it's fairly simple to enter "0.0E" on each channel to clear the programmed frequency.

How do i clear all channels and start over putting in new ones

There is no global clear/erase function on the BC350C, but programming a new frequency on a channel automatically deletes/erases the old frequency. To delete an inactive or troublesome frequency, program "000.0" in that channel. Doing so will deleted the previously programmed frequency and set the LOCKOUT to ON for that channel. For more information on deleting frequencies, see page 27 of your operating manual.

How do you clear all channels so i can put the channels that i want in it

There is no need to clear the scanner before reprogramming. When you enter a new frequency it will automatically overwrite the old frequency. To clear unwanted frequencies you can program "0.0" into any channel to clear it, or simply use the LOCKOUT feature to prevent the scanner from stopping on a channel.
