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.

Just pull it out my work car put in my truck the cord blink once the radar wont power up


Sounds like a dirty receptacle. If you're a smoker, I guarantee that's the problem. Take the cigarette lighter fuse out of your vehicle and clean the receptacle with sandpaper wrapped around a small stick. Good luck!

I lost my cord and would like to make a basic power cord can u send me a diagram that shows the color code on the end that looks like phone wire i have material but i dont know where which wire goes...


on a 4 wired RJ11 or Rj12 Phone plug, it's the middle 2 wires. green and red are your positive and neg. Do a quick touch test to confirm which is pos and neg. only works one way. after confirmed. solder the wires and wrap insulation tape around each and then a couple times over both for strength. the phone wire is prone to breakage.

What does it mean when detector powers on and service required


When powering up, the detector goes through a short diagnostics test to make sure everything is working as expected. If there is a problem detected during this time, a message like the one you have displayed will appear. You should contact Beltronics Customer Support to arrange service with one of the methods listed at the bottom of this post.
