This is a somewhat common problem that occurs when a strong voltage spike while starting your car damages the radar detector. Bel can fix your RD. Once you get it back, always start your car first before powering on your radar detector. Likewise, power off your radar detector before turning off your car's ignition.

Radar detector won't turn on


Cheap check is to eliminate the charger. If that don't fix it, apparently your detector is bad.. Good luck!

What does it mean when detector powers on and service required


When powering up, the detector goes through a short diagnostics test to make sure everything is working as expected. If there is a problem detected during this time, a message like the one you have displayed will appear. You should contact Beltronics Customer Support to arrange service with one of the methods listed at the bottom of this post.

A link to the manual for your radar detector is provided below:

you can buy a power supply (wall charger) that can provide 12 volts DC and at least 300mA and it will power your unit inside your home.

No sound on my vector 940


Beltronics is now using a special "high temperature" speaker which resolves issues with speakers blowing due to high ambient temperatures. Contact Beltronics and schedule service for your V940. Not only will Bel replace the speaker with the newer model, but they will also test and calibrate your V940 and install whatever the current firmware is for your V940.

Radar detector stopped working!


Either your V940 has an internal problem, or your car's alternator has gone bad and is overcharging the car battery. It is one or the other.

Beltronics 940 Radar aDector will not pick up signal


Try doing a "factory reset" per the instructions in the user manual. Sometimes the firmware settings get hosed, and performing a reset restores proper operation.
