I purchased a used Pro 96 off ebay, its in pretty good condition, I got Win 96 and am subscribed to Radio Reference for the download, but I need help resetting the scanner since I live in Orange County and I don't want all the Montana Stuff on it. Heres the problem though, Like the manual said turn off then on and hit number 1 then hit Erase Memory, but when I hit number 1 it says Key Tone on and off not what it should why?

Any help appreciated, Thanks.

You missed the first step.

You should follow this to...

INITALIZING THE SCANNER

1. Turn off the scanner, then turn it on again. The scanner briefly displays the DSP boot version, then the WELCOME screen.

2. Press "0" (zero) while on the WELCOME screen. The scanner displays:

System Tests
Select Test
Exits if no
Key Press

3. Press "1" (one). The scanner displays:

Factory Init
Erase Memory
ENTER if Yes
CL to Exit

4. Press ENTER. The scanner displays:

Initializing
Clr Main Mem
V-Scan is OK
Please Wait


DO NOT TURN OFF THE SCANNER UNTIL THE INITIALIZATION IS COMPLETE.

When the initialization is complete, M000 apears on the top of the display.

Bank 0 Ch00 appears on the bottom line.

Hope this helps.

With thanks to RadMarv, I've captured his procedure to the wiki. This is a question that is liable to come up again. It can be found in the 'digital trunktrackers' category, accessible right from the main page.
