• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    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:

I dropped my pro97 scanner in the driveway on rocks and now the display is scratched. Radio Shack said they can't order me a replacement part so i would have to spend about $70 total to have them work on it. and the part itself would be $50. this is alot of bull. i can call yeasu or kenwood and order parts for my ham radios so why can't i get a part for my scanner?

i'm disgusted and the radio was new last february. i don't even know where to get a protective case for it. last i new radio shack don't even sell those.

the local store over the phone.
Call 1-800-THE-SHAC. You'll have a better shot of getting it from the number than in store (some exceptions are out there, of course).

12430633 CASE ASSY FRONT $19.29 In Stock NON REPAIRABLE

The info was posted a while ago so call the 800 number to check price and stock. It probably has the non-repairable entry because the speaker is glued in the front case and is not easily removable. You might have to solder wires to the new speaker when you replace the front case assembly.

Hey Blueangel-eric...How bad is the display scratched? Are the scratches superficial or are the scratches deep and pitted?

some bad enough i can feel them with my finger nail a little bit. so i guess some are deep and pitted. many are superficial from everyday use.

Brasso is a polish. You can get it at the hardware store. Try it. It may work I have heard of people polishing out there scratches with it. Worth a try.

Protective cases work well before the fact.They won't do much good now
