Question about Passport 8500 Radar Detector
I get radar detector calibrating message when I power up the detector and when it finishes I get "service required"...Then I push the 2 buttons and it tells me "calerror 3". What is my next step? Thanks!
Hold all THREE buttons, one is located on the front right of the detector, while turning the detector on.

I had the same problem and ventured to disassemble it. Good decision on my part instead of sending it back for repair. I found that the grooves that the top buttons set in were dirty so it made my buttons stick. So in essence the buttons were always pressed downward to the point it had my detector cycling. So it would program and then get the service alert. Once I cleaned the buttons and the grooves in between, everything is just like new. Hope that helps.
