Hit the B/L button until you see DIM-DIM or DIM-Brt where the first term is until the unit is not alarming and the second is when the unit is alarming.

Hey I installed led indicators to my wr450 and they don't flash the light is just staying on like a normal light bulb. what could I do to fix this problem?

you either need to change out or wire in a electronic flasher relay... the auto parts store has them for about $12 the L.E.D.'s use less voltage and your stock flasher doesn't see them... I had to do the same thing on several of my motorcycles

I am having the same problem. I just did the software upgrade and the dector now turns off and it must be unpluged then pluged back in and it will only operate around 5 minutes then you have to do it all over again. It appears to be a product problem with software down loads.

Will not power on-- batteries are new- if pwr

I was using one of these for the last 8 months, and mine did the same thing, I would push power and the unit will just blink the lights then shut off, But if I hold the power button the light will stay on until the button was released, so I contacted Solo Tech support and they told me the system control board was bad, and in order to get a new board I had to be an authorized servicer for then, I found the board online and the price for the board exceded the price I paid for it. So i deemed it necessary to just purchase a new Scanner....

My passport 8500 stays on Full Alert

First you should try it in another car if possible. It sounds like an electrical problem. You need to rule out if its the car or the radar detector.

Open the end of the power cord it unscrews, check the fuse in it to see if its blown.

Ive also seen the screws loose that hold the circuit board down cause problems. If its out of warranty now, there should be a screw on the bottom usually under a sticker. If you peel that back and remove the screw, and lift the bottom off..Tighten any screw you see holding tbe board down, dont tighten it to hard. Then replace the cover.

Post back after you try some of those, let me know if it still does it.

Jammer shuts off

To my understanding,the first 30 seconds is a test mode when the blinder will react to a tv remote,after wards the light will remain green until a true laser attack.
