Question about Escort Solo S2 Radar Detector

Open Question

Escort Solo 2 Locks up

My Solo 2 is about 2 years old. About a year ago, I noticed the unit began intermittently shutting off (while driving) and wouldn't restart without removing and re-inserting batteries. Now, it also shuts itself off (still while driving) and will occasionally re-start with a press of the start button (or not). I've noticed that the batteries seem loose inside the battery compartment.

Thanks for the feedback.

There is no place where you can send it in for any type of service. Not only that, your Solo's performance is horribly outdated compared to any current Bel or Escort radar detector model. Even Whistler offers high end models which significantly outperform your old Solo. It is time to upgrade, plain and simple.

It seems that the fuse in my coiled smart cord is blown. Do you know the manufacturer or have a cross reference for the fuse? It has F2A written on it.


That fuse is a 2Amp fuse. ANY 2 Amp fuse that fits will do. Look even a single strand of wire will work in a pinch, simply twist it around body of old fuse and your good to go. As an aside here make sure you know what "Blew" the fuse before you simply "Replace it". Otherwise it will happen again. A Garage or electronics shop should have them.,

Detector stuck on 2 threats at all times


Sounds like the unit needs repair. Valentine is very good usually and their repair service is good. I have had one for 5 years - no problems.

Won't go off


The first thing to try is to do what is called a "factory reset". What this does is to force your RD to reload all of its factory default settings straight out of the programmed firmware. These new settings will then overwrite any present settings which may be corrupted. Here is how to do it (specifically for the Solo S2):

Solo S2’s Factory Settings
To reset Solo S2 to its original factory settings,press and hold the Mute and M (Mode) buttons while turning Solo S2 on.Solo S2’s display will provide a “Reset” message,accompanied by an audible alert,acknowledging the reset.

Bel 880 sound


Call bel, the number is on the label on the bottom, I am having the same problem with mine, he was very helpful and said it was probably the speaker which they sell for $8. If your handy with a soldering iron its simple repair. Or they offer a trade up service, giving you like $80 towards a new unit.

Varifying detection


This happens often, as the units are basically very expensive bricks. They usually work quite fine for 12 months and 37 seconds though! The devices are built by prisoners in Ohio on a work-release program ... do you think they care? No, really, do ya? After getting hosed for $340, be prepared to cough up more cash. And, even then, there is no guarantee that the "repair" will last long, as it is only warranted for 6 months after the "repair" is completed. Oh, and btw, it WILL fail again. ZZTop watch  your speed, as the S2 you describe is doing squat. As for an onboard self-test feature, this is a GREAT idea, but, of course: 1) You are dreaming and 2) This would completely ruin Escort's business model.
