Question about Whistler Fuzzbuster F4000 Radar Detector

1 Answer

Broken Display I have had this detector for a few years now, and it continues to work well for me. My problem is that the text display doesn't work. I still hear the beeps and bloops from it, but it no longer shows the band (X,Ka, etc.) or the bars to tell me how close it is. Thing is, when I press down on the top of the unit, the text appears as long as I am applying pressure. Is there a way to fix this so I don't have to press down to get a display? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

What is the difference between the Whistler XTR 265 and the xtr438

The XTR-438 has Text display (vs. the XTR-265 Icon display), filter and TFSR modes (TFSR = Traffic Flow Signal Rejection). This mode helps reduce the alarms from traffic monitoring transmitters.

Radar says cal???

There is no text display on a 1640 also this model doesn't have voice capability. Now, in order for the compass to properly function the unit does need to be calibrated. There is a sticker on the bottom of the unit that gives step by step instructions.

Whistler cruisader radar detector troubleshooting

ITs very important to not have power connected to the unit when connecting the cables to the display. Its possible that the display unit will need to be returned for service. Call 800-531-0004 for return information.

I hav3e a Whistler 1765 unit and when I tried to transfer it to a new car it would not calibrate, even after 5 tries. It was "stuck" on 315 degrees. Then the display changed and was stuck on...

There could be few reasons for this.
1. There is strong magnetic field near the radar detector. This could be even car speakers.
2. There is power lines going above the place where you are trying to calibrate.
3. To complete calibration you need to press both the volume control buttons while the vehicle is parked.. The display will show "CAL MODE". Then slowly drive at least 2 complete circles while in calibration mode. Then again press both the volume control buttons for 2 seconds until it beeps and shows " CAL DONE" in the display.

Led display shut down when the detector detect an alert

You have the unit in dark mode. Press the Dim/Dark button again to get the unit to full brightness. THe unit has 3 levels of DIM. First the unit is at its full brightness, pressing the dim/dark button will dim the display and the unit functions normally. Press the Dim/Dark button again will futher darken the display but when the unit alarms the display is turned off and remain off during the alert. After the alert is over the unit waits 20 seconds of no alert to turn the display back on.

Can a radar still display your locked speed if the unit is turned off. An officer gave me a ticket..  I was driving and saw the patrol car, my radar detector came on when he turned his on then he turned...

Yes. On many radar gun models the officer can lock your speed and turn the radar gun off, yet the radar gun will still display the locked speed. Officers are not required to show you the locked speed.

Display won't light

This is most likely due to a cold solder joint for one of the display leads where they are soldered to the edge of the circuit board. Or, possibly, the display itself has gone bad.
