Question about Escort Solo S2 Radar Detector

1 Answer

Escort doesn't work

I have about an 8 year old Escort Solo Radar Detector (not the S2). It just simply quit working, even with new batteries and fuse in the cord. Escort Co. says they don't work on these anymore. Anyone know where I can send it for inexpensive repair? Thanks

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 Not only that, your Solo's performance is horribly outdated compared to any current Bel or Escort radar detector model.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

I have a 2008 bwm 3 series...When you try to start the car it just clicks & the instrument panel goes crazy!!


This could be a collapsed battery or it could be a crashed vehicle computer. Start by changing the battery. It is much cheaper than the computer.

It seems that the fuse in my coiled smart cord is blown. Do you know the manufacturer or have a cross reference for the fuse? It has F2A written on it.


That fuse is a 2Amp fuse. ANY 2 Amp fuse that fits will do. Look even a single strand of wire will work in a pinch, simply twist it around body of old fuse and your good to go. As an aside here make sure you know what "Blew" the fuse before you simply "Replace it". Otherwise it will happen again. A Garage or electronics shop should have them.,

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


Hi:
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....

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.

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.
