This means that your RD has failed several attempts to self-calibrate its internal antenna. Like the message says, you must send in your V995 for service. Bel will fix whatever the issue is, and they will install the latest firmware too. Also, be sure to ask Bel to check and see if they need to replace the existing speaker with their new "high temp" speaker. The new speaker resolves potential issues of the original speaker failing due to high heat conditions.

Message indicates it needs service.


The radar detector goes through a quick diagnostic check at power up - not unlike a computer does at boot time. During this time, critical operational parameters are checked and should any be found out of spec, you receive a warning message - letting you know that all is NOT well. You can not expect to have the same level of warning or protection from this device while it is not operating as designed.

Your best best is to contact Beltronics Customer Support and review your options with a representative.

I hope this helped - 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:

Service required


This message is generated only after a Bel or Escort radar detector has repeatedly encountered problems while trying to self-calibrate its radar detection circuitry. The Service Required message literally means that you must send in your RD for service since there is nothing that can be done to fix whatever the problem is short of sending it in for factory service. At least it will come back working like brand new!

Beeps and says service required


This message occurs if your V995 can't properly calibrate its internal circuitry for the antenna. As the message implies, you need to send in your V995 for factory service.
