Beltronics Vector 995 Radar Detector Problem

I've had my radar detector for over a year now and I was wondering if anyone could help me out with a problem I have with it. My problem is everytime I turn my detector on it takes about 10 seconds and the screen goes dim then it says service call then another 10 seconds go by and it shuts off. I have a little electronics background but I don't have the circuit board specs and really don't know where to start.

    My unit is about 2yrs. old. 995 Just went black. Thought it was a fuse in my vehicle. Fuses were ok. So I checked the cord and it checked good. I hooked it up to another 12 volt sorce. Still no power up. Double checked power cord it's good.What else can I do/ thanks Jack.

Message indicates it needs service.


The radar detector goes through a quick diagnostic check at power up - not unlike a computer does at boot time. During this time, critical operational parameters are checked and should any be found out of spec, you receive a warning message - letting you know that all is NOT well. You can not expect to have the same level of warning or protection from this device while it is not operating as designed.

Your best best is to contact Beltronics Customer Support and review your options with a representative.

I hope this helped - good luck!

No sound on my vector 940


Beltronics is now using a special "high temperature" speaker which resolves issues with speakers blowing due to high ambient temperatures. Contact Beltronics and schedule service for your V940. Not only will Bel replace the speaker with the newer model, but they will also test and calibrate your V940 and install whatever the current firmware is for your V940.

I have a beltronics 995 radar detector and i have a problem with it. The message "Service Required " appears.Please help . Thank you


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.

BELTRONICS 940


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.
