    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.

Any owners of the Pro 2006 ever experience keys that don't respond when pressed? I have to hit the key multiple times to get it to do anything. Just wondering if anyone has a solution to this problem. I have cleaned the circuit board and the key buttons but it hasn't helped much.

Thanks

Decided to take it apart and have a look see. What I did was I took fine sandpaper and scruffed up the little black buttons on the other side of each key it now works as it should.

Next project is the backlight replacement if I can find one>

Good fix. What worked for me was a lot of contact cleaner once I had the membrane separated from the circuit board.

Good luck with the backlight. I bought one on ebay a while back. It was not as bright as the original one.
