Question about 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 Not only that, your Solo's performance is horribly outdated compared to any current Bel or Escort radar detector model.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.

Low humming sound from we don't no where. Have tried shutting everything off and I mean everything off and still it persists , mostly all the time. Sounds like a low rumble that waxes and wanes. Driving...


I had a similar problem on a unit for one of my customers several years ago. I thought it sounded like a transformer getting old and louder. I shut what I thought was all power to furnace,including unit switch,breaker,and blower door switch and still it would not stop.By luck and a healthy zap from 110 volt I found out they had run power back in to transformer from one side of contactor on a.c. unit. I installed a new transformer and rewired incoming power to repair. Hope this does you some good. Thank you.

3 YEAR OLD SANYO DP 32746. SHUT ITSELF OFF, CAN NOT TURN BACK ON


If you leave the tv unplugged for 2 days (atleast) then plug it back in and try to turn it on and if it comes on its the power supply board. If it comes back on it will probably shut off between 30min to 4hrs and you would have to unplug it for 2 days again. All the power needs to drain out of the tv. If thats the case take the back pannel off and check the part number out on the internet. Not hard to do becarefull touching things the power supply does store a little bit or shock in it. Good Luck.

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.

No red in picture


It could be a dry solder joint on the base socket pcb. Try resoldering the base socket, and try for dry joints on the main board also. Check if the rgb voltages are steady on the crt driver transistor bases.

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.
