How do I troubleshoot scanner problems?
My scanner hangs up on a particular frequency; however, the problem goes away when I remove the antenna.
Why does my RadioShack scanner pick up the same transmission on a different frequency from the frequency I receive on a super-heterodyne or dual-conversion scanner?
I need a service manual, and the local store said there isn't one for my scanner. Why?
Why do I get constant noise on a particular channel?
When I plug a speaker into the earphone jack, the audio volume cuts down a lot & I have to turn the volume up - is this normal?
My scanner will accept 821.2620 but then rounds it off the 821.250? Why can't I enter the right frequency?
I tried charging NiMH batteries in my scanner & the batteries appear to be expanding.
I put new batteries in my scanner but it shuts off after a few seconds.
My scanner stops on a particular channel or frequency when using the DC adapter and the engine is running; it works fine when the engine is not running.
