I recently purchased a Beltronics RX 65, and the voice doesn't work. It seems as if it is always in the mute mode, and I have reset factory settings, turned off auto-mute, and still nothing seems to fix it.. Can anyone give me any advice?

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:
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.
This most likely is due to a blown internal speaker which has shorted across its voice coil rather than becoming an open circuit. Bel/Escort now uses special "high temp" speakers which resolve any failing speaker issues due to higher temperatures. I assume that your STi is out of warranty. Yet, it will be worth it ($80) to have the speaker replaced and to have your STi flashed with the latest firmware which also gives the STi a true audio ramp-up rather than just the original slow or fast audio beeps to indicate the strength of the detected radar. The new firmware also includes slight performance enhancements, and includes better filtering for Autoscan mode. This latter enhanced Autoscan filtering makes the STi noticeably quieter while driving around town.
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.
