Default Worked last night getting nothing today

My pro 106 was working fine last night now today it scans but no signal bars showing. Also just static on WX channel any ideas?. I have tried 2 different antennas.
Thanks
Scott

Not kidding you on this.

1. Squeeze the case hard on both sides near top and bottom.

2. Give the scanner a light rap into the palm of your hand.

I have had that happen periodically with my PSR-500 and one or both of the above did the trick. Don't know what causes that but the squeeze rap seems to fix.
