All Channels Locked Out

I picked up the scanner and hit some unknown buttons when I did it. Now it says that all channels are locked out. I have gone to each channel manually and made sure they are not locked out, yet when I press the scan button, it tells me that "all channels locked out!"

How do I fix this?

    Thanks!! I had pushed the reset before, but it didn't work. This time, after reading the directions (again) and then initializing, it worked. Thanks for your quick help.

How do you program a Regency Programmable Scanner R1070?

Regency R1070 Frequencies for people with no manual
These are the ranges it supports.

30-50 Mhz
144-174 Mhz
440-512 Mhz

To make it scan, first set the range by pressing Manual and then Search. It will ask for the LOwer end and the UPper end of the range. Enter them, press Scan and then Search, and it will start scanning. When it locks and you want to keep going, hit Search again. You can press Delay to stop at a channel temporarily. To save a frequency in memory, hit Manual and pick a number, then type it out and hit Enter. When you have a few channels saved and you want to check up on each of them, Scan scans through memory. The Lock button is to skip a particular channel while scanning.

That's pretty much the whole manual right there.

Scanning problem


Jun 08, 2007 | Radio Shack Pro-95 Handheld Scanner

1 Answer

I think my scanner only scans in the 30s. I also see a P on the left side of the screen on some of the numbers

  • The "P" means you have the scanner scanning only priority channels.
  • To get rid of the "P" simply press the PRG button on the far right and bottom of the key pad and hold for 5 seconds. No the scanner should be off Priority.

  • Now pick any channel that is not Locked Out and hit the "L/O" button which is the button all the way on the bottom second to the left from the wight on the keypad. Hold this for five seconds until you hear two beeps and all your channels will be unlocked and you will have free scanning capabilities again.

  • Removing the "P" might be the fix right off the back depending on how many priority channels you have.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Regards, Tony

Pro-96 Scanner: My pro 96 scanner says all channels locked and it ...

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.

GRE prs 295 channels locked out

This message usually means that the scanner has been cleared of all programming. Press the MANUAL key repeatedly to review channels. If 000.0000 shows, it means that you need to program the unit.

I just aquired a Regency R 4010 portable scanner and am looking for the frequency range and programing instructions.

Turn scanner on.
Make sure Key Pad is set to ON.
Press the manual button until the Channel display shows the channel you want to program (i.e. 1 thr 10)
On the key pad enter the freqency and hit the E key when done.
Hit the Manual key to select the next Channel you want to program.
Repeat process.
When finished hit the scan button.
If you want to see what freqency is programmed for a channel hit the Manual button until you reach the desired channel then hit the Review button.
If you want to lockout a channel (i.e. a channel that continuously broadcasts like the National Weather Service, hit the Manual button until you reach the desired channel then hit the L/O button. Hitting it again will unlock the channel.
