So I'm new to the whole scanning business and wanted to try it out by purchasing a used pro-97 off of e-bay.
The unit seemed to work fine but then later on during the day when I pushed the scan button a couple of times, the thing went bonkers as I the lights start to blink and there is static that corresponds with the blinking lights with nothing displayed on the screen.
The seller claims there is nothing wrong with the scanner and this happens when there is no frequency to stop on. I think the seller is lying. Luckily they have agreed to refund me the money as long as I sent it back, but I'm a bit frustrated that I'll be throwing away $7 for return shipping.
I'm assuming the whole blinking lights and static is not supposed to happen to a normal functioning pro 97 correct?
