I had the same problem with my 955. Called Beltronics and gave them $30 on my credit card. Then sent it to them. It came back fixed 18 days later and has been working better than ever.

Now it does not over heat and I am as happy as can be.

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.

This is a somewhat common problem that occurs when a strong voltage spike while starting your car damages the radar detector. Bel can fix your RD. Once you get it back, always start your car first before powering on your radar detector. Likewise, power off your radar detector before turning off your car's ignition.

SOURCE: I have a Beltronics Pro RX65 Radar Detector that

I have the same problem. I chatted with Bel and here's the transcript, FYI:


chatinfo.gifWelcometo Beltronics.! An online representative will be with you shortly. Youare number 1 in the queue. Your wait time will be approximately 1 and 9seconds. Thank you for waiting.
chatinfo.gifYou are now chatting with 'Brian'
Brian: Welcome to Beltronics Live Chat. How may I assist you today?
you: Hi Brian, I
you: own a Bel pro rx65
you: and it gave an error
you: that said
you: selfcal4
you: or something like that
you: then it said service
you: required
you: what does this mean?
Brian: Thereare a number of things that may cause this ERROR message. Please besure that you are getting consistent voltage (does the lighter socketstay ON all the time? Does it do the same thing in other vehicles?). If the display reads "Service Required" not caused by the above, itmeans it has failed it's self-calibration and requires service. Pleasecall our Customer Service Department at 800-341-2288 and they will giveyou a repair authorization number and instructions on how to return itto us so we can take a look at your detector.
you: Oh i see. what's the cost for repair?
Brian: That is a $59.95 repair fee. To set that up, please call Customer Service at 800-964-3138, option 2.
you: and what cause calibration to fail?
Brian: If the reasons listed above don't sound like what's happening, then it would be up to a repair tech to figure out why.
you: I had left it in the car in hot weather. would this be a cause?
Brian: It's possible, over a long time in the heat to develop.
you: I can call either number correct?
Brian: Correct.
you: ok thanks

I called the number and they were helpful, told me to use a packing service like UPS and such. Insure it. And it would take about 5-7 days for them to work on it, another 3-4 days of shipping time.
Considering the reviews on the rx65 and the prices for detectors out there, and considering that they will also apply any software updates (bought mine in '06) the $60 repair fee is worth it for me.

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.

Hold down the "Brt" and "City" buttons as you power the unit on. This will reset the unit to it's default settings. It worked to restore mine to operation.

Service required


This message is generated only after a Bel or Escort radar detector has repeatedly encountered problems while trying to self-calibrate its radar detection circuitry. The Service Required message literally means that you must send in your RD for service since there is nothing that can be done to fix whatever the problem is short of sending it in for factory service. At least it will come back working like brand new!

Beltronics V955 Chirps on all bands for 10 minutes when cold


This is most likely caused by a poor connection between the antenna ridge and the local oscillator board. Another possibility is an uncontrolled LO chamber harmonic due to the cold temperatures. Regardless of the cause, your V955 is under warranty and Bel will fix it for free -- as long as you include a photocopy of your sales receipt. Go to Bel's web site (www.beltronics.com), and either call their 800 number or do the online chat in order to get a RMA number.

Beltronics 940 Radar aDector will not pick up signal


Try doing a "factory reset" per the instructions in the user manual. Sometimes the firmware settings get hosed, and performing a reset restores proper operation.
