Power off the RD using its power button. Then hold down the two programming buttons and press the power button while holding down these the two programming buttons. Release all three buttons once RESET is displayed on the RD's display. Your 8500 has now been reset back to the original factory settings with all bands enabled. You can download a PDF duplicate of the original user manual from Escort's web site.

I also have a 8500 passport that flashes laser and will go off


Does this happen in the city or does it happen when you are out in the middle of nowhere? I have seen laser detectors that are falsely triggered by various lighting devices that contain wavelengths of light similar to those used in police laser.

If this is annoying and you dont want to hear it, you can locate the receiver element that detects the laser signal and cover it up with a piece of black electrical tape. That should stop whatever is causing your problem unless there is something actually broken inside the unit.

Thanks,

Changes from auto to hwy to city on its own


The problem is a defective micro switch underneath the City button. Contact Escort about setting up a RMA to get your X50 fixed.

Passport 8500 will no longer switch to LOUD mode


Try doing a factory reset as described in the user manual since it is possible that a power fluctuation has somewhat corrupted the internally saved user settings.

Continuous alert


About the only thing to try with the Escort 8500 and the x50 is to do a full reset. Hold all 3 buttons down while turning the detector on. I believe Escort will still work on it, there will just be a service charge with no warranty.
