I purchased a preprogrammed 246T from Scanner Master. Somehow I think I locked out two systems on the scanner. I say I think I locked them out because as it scans it does not show the 3 and 4 systems that were programmed into the scanner. I think I locked them out accidentally when taking the scanner off my belt and hitting a combination of a number button and either Menu or Function button on the side.

Would someone give me instructions how to unlock the two systems not presently showing up on the screen?

Thanks.

Do you see any of the numbers beside SYS stared * out instead of showing the number?
so for example
SYS 1234*67890

If the systems are stared out (like 5) then hit the number 5 again to activate the quick key


If the system was locked out...
In scan mode press Hold to hold on any channel.
Press and hold Func then press 7/Rcl.
At 'Select System' scroll to the system you want to lock or unlock.
Press and hold Func then L/O to lock or unlock the system.
Press Scan to exit.

There were no asteriks in place of the system numbers. However by just pressing the same number as the system number, the numbers reappeared. Thanks for your assistance. This owner's manual that came with the scanner is very confusing. I may need a week of vacation time to spend just re-reading it and practicing.
