Everything lights up and is working,but i have no sound

Do you accidentally have it muted? The Mute button, located on PASSPORT's top panel and SmartCord. Have you turned up the volume on it? Volume Control (VOL) To increase or decrease the audio volume, press and hold the (+) or (-) volume control buttons located on the top case. A sample alert tone will be generated, along with a corresponding bar-graph on the display. Once you have reached your desired volume level, simply release the button. This level will be stored in memory. In Preferences Auto Volume is the default. This feature will increase the audio alert level automatically when the ambient noise in the vehicle is high. Good luck.

I have a whistler 1660 radar detector. It worked fine for 2 years, then I noticed when I turned the volume up or down it would "skip" and mute itself until I had to wiggle the volume wheel...

The volume control is not a common "off the shelf" part and it may not be found in electronic part stores. Have you tried moving the volume control rapidly high and low? Something this will "clean" the contacts in the control.

No sound

Hello there :
if you have tried to adjust the volume on the unit and still have no volume then your volume controle know b may be faulty or the speaker inside of the unit may be bad in this case you would have to remove the 4 or 6 screws that hold the 2 halves together and seperate the 2 halves nd inspect the internal wiring to see if there is a wire that has came off of the speaker if so it will need to be soldered back into pla ok?
Hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards MIchael

Code ?lo1 cal comes up and wont go off

This means that the primary local oscillator couldn't be calibrated during the RD's self-calibration procedure. You could get your RD repaird by Bel/Escort, but with these older models, your best bet would be to take advantage of Bel/Escort's trade-in offer to get a current model which provides significantly better performance -- particularly with regards to Ka band radar.

No audio

Hi everyone,

Bel/Escort now uses a special and proprietary "high temp" speaker which resolves issues of speakers blowing due to high ambient temperatures or heat which builds up within the speaker when it is alerting for extended periods of time. If your RX65 is in warranty and you can make a photocopy of your sales receipt, then great! All you have to pay is shipping to Bel. Bell will replace the speaker with the new version, flash your RX65 with whatever the latest firmware is, and calibrate and test your RX65 too. So, all of this is peachy if your RX65 is under warranty.

If your RX65 is out-of-warranty or if it doesn't have a serial number or was bought from a non-authorized dealer, then the service charge as I recall is $80. Thats not bad since your RD will come back working like brand new.

A note about the speakers: They are made by PUI, but the speakers are proprietary to Bel/Escort. Thus you can not buy them from any source -- not even direct from PUI.

Bel 880 sound

Call bel, the number is on the label on the bottom, I am having the same problem with mine, he was very helpful and said it was probably the speaker which they sell for $8. If your handy with a soldering iron its simple repair. Or they offer a trade up service, giving you like $80 towards a new unit.

Call Beltronics tell them you have an RX65 out of warranty. They charge about $65. When I did mine I sent them only the detector and they also set me a new cord & suction cups.
