Beltronics rx65 service required can I fix this problem??


This detector - along with other high-end types that require a microprocessor to analyze signals - performs a self-test when powering up. This is done for the same reasons a Power On Self Test is done on your computer. There's a lot going on inside and if just one area is malfunctioning data may not be processed correctly and in the case of the detector - resulting in aggravating false alarms or worse - not indicating an alert when needed.

You should arrange for the detector's return to Beltronics for thorough checking / realignment. Contact Beltronics via this link.

I hope this helps!

My radar detector says selfcalc when it turns on and then says service required. Can i fix this my self or have to send it back to get fixed?


I have the same problem. I chatted with Bel and here's the transcript, FYI:


chatinfo.gifWelcometo Beltronics.! An online representative will be with you shortly. Youare number 1 in the queue. Your wait time will be approximately 1 and 9seconds. Thank you for waiting.
chatinfo.gifYou are now chatting with 'Brian'
Brian: Welcome to Beltronics Live Chat. How may I assist you today?
you: Hi Brian, I
you: own a Bel pro rx65
you: and it gave an error
you: that said
you: selfcal4
you: or something like that
you: then it said service
you: required
you: what does this mean?
Brian: Thereare a number of things that may cause this ERROR message. Please besure that you are getting consistent voltage (does the lighter socketstay ON all the time? Does it do the same thing in other vehicles?). If the display reads "Service Required" not caused by the above, itmeans it has failed it's self-calibration and requires service. Pleasecall our Customer Service Department at 800-341-2288 and they will giveyou a repair authorization number and instructions on how to return itto us so we can take a look at your detector.
you: Oh i see. what's the cost for repair?
Brian: That is a $59.95 repair fee. To set that up, please call Customer Service at 800-964-3138, option 2.
you: and what cause calibration to fail?
Brian: If the reasons listed above don't sound like what's happening, then it would be up to a repair tech to figure out why.
you: I had left it in the car in hot weather. would this be a cause?
Brian: It's possible, over a long time in the heat to develop.
you: I can call either number correct?
Brian: Correct.
you: ok thanks

I called the number and they were helpful, told me to use a packing service like UPS and such. Insure it. And it would take about 5-7 days for them to work on it, another 3-4 days of shipping time.
Considering the reviews on the rx65 and the prices for detectors out there, and considering that they will also apply any software updates (bought mine in '06) the $60 repair fee is worth it for me.

Why my beltronics doesn't detect?


check the lens and make sure its clean, if not then its bad and needs to be replaced..

No power when pluged in. Fuse is good. Adapter is hot.


You pressed the power button on top of the radar detector? If that doesn't work, first plug the smartcord into your cigarette lighter socket. Then plug in the RJ11 connector into your RX65 while looking at the power lamp on the smartcord. If you see the smartcord power lamp very briefly and faintly flash, then power is getting to your RX65 yet for some reason, even when pressing the power button, it won't power up. In that case, you have to send to Beltronics for service.

Problem to turn on my RX65


Obviously you have pressed the power button on your RX65 in order to try to power it up since you mention that the green light on the SmartCord comes on. Here is one possible solution, which resolves any stored user settings which might have become corrupted due to power fluctuations:

First, press the power button so that the radar detector is turned off (green light is off). Then hold down the two buttons used for programming and, while holding these programming buttons down, press the power button. Release all three buttons once you see "RESET" displayed on the RX65's display. Your RX65 has now restored all factory default settings from a separate area of programmed memory, and this (hopefully) will restore your RX65 to proper operation.

Service needed


The internal self-calibration procedure has repeatedly failed, causing your RX65 to display the Service Required message. You need to send it to Bel for repair.

Call Beltronics tell them you have an RX65 out of warranty. They charge about $65. When I did mine I sent them only the detector and they also set me a new cord & suction cups.
