Question about Vector 995 Radar Detector
I am unable to have any settings save. i will change what the display shows or which radar bands are on hit the power button to save. it says complete and nothing changes. also the volume level does not stay where i set it. i will turn it all the way up and then it will be all the way off if i unplug it. i have tried resetting and this did not work.

If its still under warrenty Call Beltronics 800-341-2288 I had the same problem and they re-tuned the Detector and updated the firmware my Vector 985 was out of warrenty by 5 months and Bel repaired it for free. Hope this helps

I don't know this particular model. I will comment genericaly.
Most of these devices have an internal memory battery. Some models use a gold leaf capacitor.
In some models the memory battery is on solder terminals. If you are experienced at using a soldering station and know about how to change components on a circuit board, you can change this type of battery yourself. You will have to open the unit to get the battery part number.
If the unit uses a socketed type battery, this is a lot easier to change.
If the unit uses a gold leaf capacitor, the old one would have to be un-soldered from the circuit board, and the new one soldered back in.
Once you have the specifications for the required gold leaf capacitor, or the required battery, you can probably get these from most electronic parts suppliers.
There is a chance however that this manufacture is using proprietory parts. Then you will be forced to order original parts.
Rarely, it is possible that the memory storage problem is a bad IC on the circuit board. If the IC is a SMD device, you may not be able to change it with conventional soldering tools. This will be manufacture service only.
If you are not familiar with the above, you should call the manufacture to find out how to have your unit serviced by them or an authorized service place located near to you.

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.

Bel/Escort now use a special "high temp" speaker which resolves issues of blown speakers. They can replace the blown speaker inside your RD.
