It has to go back in for service. Possibly the tech either forgot or didn't properly reflow the solder contacts on the LO board which makes contact between the LO board and the horn's ridge. It isn't something which you should even think about attempting to repair yourself. Send it back in and they will get it right this time.

Making unusual alerts with Ka and x bands


It could be picking up garage door openers, which are a common false alert for radar detectors. In a neighborhood, there are all sorts of sensors that give off false alarms. I usually turn mine off when driving through a neighborhood as police are less likely to be using radar (unless in a school zone).

My valentine one will not pick up speed camera vans now it was working on KA band then went to K band now will not pick up?


They are using instant-on radar that has a weak K-band signal that is used to turn on the radar when you are in range. The signal is so weak that you cant detect it until you are in range of the main radar set. This is also known as radar detector countermeasures. Laser is worse. I have beaten laser twice with my Valentine 1 in California where it requires 2 reads to nail you. Slam on the brakes when your detector alerts..

My Ka alert has started going off quite frequently after 5 years (I've disabled X band). It is professionally hard wired in w/Valentine's connections and fuse. Happens on the same roads I've always...


have you tried to find out where on that same road it always goes off? could either be a new hidden camera or some other device recently installed utilising the same frequency as ka transmitting in that area. had same prob with my v1 always goes off in one part of the country road. even got out of car to investigate but found nothing that appears obvious.

What is pop and spector mean


POP is a type of radar mode which only a couple of radar guns have. In essence, radar gun in POP mode emits an extremely brief signal to measure a car's speed. This brief signal lasts for less than 1/5 of a second. POP mode can not legally be used to write speeding tickets since it is not as accurate as the radar gun's normal operating modes, and since POP mode provides absolutely no radar tracking history.

Most people turn off POP mode in their radar detector's options since POP radar is very rarely encountered and since users experience excessive false alerts with POP turned on.

Spectre refers to the Spectre radar detector detector (RDD) which police use to locate drivers who are using radar detectors. The current Spectre models in use by law enforcement are the Spectre III and IV models. Some Cobra radar detectors claim to be able to detect the Spectre I. This is of no value since all Spectre I RDDs have been upgraded to later Spectre models which Cobra radar detectors can not detect. In short, turn Spectre detection off since this feature is a needless source of false alerts.

Earlywarning EW3001 won't give me a warning


This is because the Sunkyong Early Warning radar detector is an absolute piece of junk in terms of actual radar detection performance. It performance is dismal compared to any product manufactured by Bel, Escort, Whistler's higher end products, or Valentine Research. Let me guess -- you bought your Early Warning RD off of eBay.

False laser alerts


Bel has a firmware fix to solve these issues. It if free if your RD still is in warranty. Of course, covering the rear laser sensor may solve the problem. That isn't a really bad idea since the rear laser sensor on all radar detectors is pretty much useless anyway.

I have a cobra radar dector esd 737 and i sdoesnt pick up cops tell they are like not even a half a mile ahead of you and tips or ideas how to get it to work better


Detecting of radar or lidar emissions depends on mounting of detector.In My experience it is best to mount it just above windscreen wipers.You must check if your detector is visible from license plate level. This is important for laser detection. For other measuring devices it's only important to be visible.Higher mounting facing downwards will reduce false X and K/Ka signals.It will reduce detecing of true as well, so it is all up to you.You must know that laser detecting only covers your car.It d'ont matter if a cop is 300m or 1800m away.X band has a large emission, and it is easily detected.K/Ka band is a pulse emitting and has a lot narrow detecting point.It is effective at max 800m.In ether case speed can be reduced 20-30 km/h in city, and 30-50 km/h on highway.
