• 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:

Please help.. Pro92 question.

I know it's an older model scanner, but it's one of my favorites. It turns on and is programmed properly, but as it scans it does not pick anything up. I have all local channels programmed but even the wx feature don't work. Batteries are good, it's not damaged, I don't know what the deal is, any insight?

PRO-92 symptoms

There are a couple of common problems with these scanners. First, when you open the squelch do you hear the "rushing" sound? If so it sounds like it could be a loose wire on the antenna connector. If not, it could be a bad volume or squelch pot.

Give us some more details on what it does do. Thanks.

Moved to the RS Forum.

Just as a side note, I own a couple of these (and a 2067). The 92's both have developed a slight "deafness" when first turned on lately (last 6 months or so). It improves the longer they are on so I suspect some aging on some component inside that gets better as it works. I have no intention of seeking a "fix" to this as they do work for what I need them to do. But just thought I would add that comment to the mix as I moved the thread.
