Are you past the initial 30 day return period or the warranty has expired?

If so, you can go back to Radio Shack and have them send it off for repair. They will require a $20 nonrefundable estimate fee and get back with you in a few weeks. If you agree to the repair, the $20 is applied towards it.

Radio Shack's repair charges are fairly reasonable for these scanners... usually $50 to $100. The problem would have to be fairly severe to be more than that.

Has the 197 died or just just the power supply? There is a 1 year warranty on the radio and power supply. Have you tested it on another power source like from an automobile?
