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.

Take apart 955 beltronics


There are 2 screws you need to remove. The first one is in the corner of the base (flip it over and you will see it). The second screw is under the Beltronics sticker on the base, right below the first hyphen in their USA phone number. If you rub your fingernail around that location, you should feel the depression. I didn't remove the sticker, I just stuck my screwdriver over the sticker and unscrewed it through the sticker. Hope this helps.

No sound on my vector 940


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.

Sound too low


The speaker could have gone bad. Or it simply could be corrupted settings for your saved user settings. To reset your V995 to the factory default settins:

-- Power off your V995 using its power button.
-- Hold down the two "Program" buttons and, while holding down these two buttons, press the Power button. Release all three buttons when "Reset" is displayed on your V995's display. Performing this factory reset forces the V995 to load the factory default settings which are permanently stored in a separate part of the firmware code. These settings then overwrite your stored preferences which are stored in another part of the memory. Now, all you have to do after performing this "factory reset" procedure is to once again set all settings to whatever you prefer.
