    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Hello Everyone,

I need a little bit of help here. I would like some instructions on how to reboot my Radio Shack PRO 197?. Every time I go to push a button on it I get an error message. I would very much appreciate any help any of you could provide me with.

Thanks

If you want to "Initialize the Scanner to Factory Defaults" (from pages 92-93 in the PRO-197 owner's manual) follow these steps:

Note: This procedure clears all information you stored in the
scanner’s working memory, AND resets the global parameters to
factory defaults. Initialize the scanner only when you are sure the
scanner is not working properly. V-Scanner memory is not affected
when the scanner is initialized.

1. Turn off the scanner, then turn it on again.
The scanner briefly displays the DSP boot version, and then the
Welcome/Owner screen is displayed.

2. Press 0 while the scanner is displaying the Welcome/Owner
screen.

3. Press 1.

4. Press ENT.

5. Press any key on the keypad to proceed.

6. Press any key on the keypad to proceed. The scanner will reboot
with file system and global parameters reset to factory defaults.
