Hi everyone hope all hyad a nice holiday! I have a 2096 a couple of years old. I'm having a problem with the display. All I'm getting atr about 11 horizontal lines on the display. Everything else works. Any ideas or do I need to have RS repair?
I had the same problem. What I did was open up the case and looked for the ribbon cable that goes between the main board and the front. I trimmed off the very slight end of the ribbon cable and relocked the cable down to the main board. That has cured by problem and now it's been 1 year so far. Good luck.

I had the same problem with my Pro-2096 and sent it to Radios Shack Repair.They did a great job and Idid get a 1 year warranty with the repair.*Note the Radio Shack Pro-96 handheld also has the same problem*
First thanks to everyones for there help. This radio has only been used in my car. When I took it out and hooked it up to a 110 volt outlet inside everything worked fine at least for the last hour. I'm thinking now for what ever reason it was not getting enough juice from the 12 volt. Any thoughts?
