Picked up a used PRO-197 off of eBay last week and it arrived yesterday. Great scanner. Works flawlessly. Well, except for one minor thing... the volume knob and the squelch knob wants to stick together. Not a major issue, just mildly irritating.

What's the best way to get them to turn freely of each other? Vaseline? Wipe a little WD-40 on them? Something else? Nothing, just deal with it? LOL

Any info / comments / tips / comments and/or suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Mine did the same thing one time, all I did was push upward on the volume knob a few times and it freed them right up, works like brand new now

You're right, it's just like brand new. Thanks for the tip.

Sometimes the simplest solutions are the best / most effective ones.
