Question about V1 Radar Detector

Detector stuck on 2 threats at all times

While driving down the highway, the detector seems to be stuck on 1 or 2 bogeys at a level of 4 or 5 led lights on the ka band. Even when I'm traveling for hours with no one on the road it keeps detecting something. I'll turn it off and on but still it fluctuates at 1 or 2 bogeys at a consistent rate. Then I'll have to mute it the whole ride and I don't notice when I approach an actual threat. I happen to have a similar problem. It went haywire on me. Out of no where it kept going off. it was on like the highest strength and never went off until i unplug it. what is the problem?

Sounds like the unit needs repair. Valentine is very good usually and their repair service is good. I have had one for 5 years - no problems.

When changing the Settings on your detector, please keep in mind: Each time the unit is turned On the factory settings of Highway and Auto Mute-On will be set. They can be changed while the unit is in use as described in the following sections.
Assistance Muting An Alert
Your detector allows you to quickly turn Off an audio Alert by momentarily pressing the Mute button. If you press the Mute button a second time during the Alert, the audio Alert will be turned back On.
Auto Mute Mode Auto Mute will automatically reduce the audio volume of all alerts after four (4) seconds for as long as the signal is detected. The factory setting for Auto Mute is On.
Highway/City Mode Setting your detector to City mode delays all X band audio alerts at lower signal strength levels. (A single beep will sound when the signal is first Notice detected.) This will reduce false alerts while you are driving in, or near, urban areas where there are many sources for conflicting X band signals such as microwave towers and automatic door openers. To change settings, follow the procedure listed below, which indicates what you will see and hear as you complete each step. The factory setting is Highway mode.
Highway Mode City Mode
Mute Button Press and release
To Turn Auto Mute Off X Ka L S
City Button Press and release
Press and release the Mute button while no alert is occurring.

Example the number of smoke detector is 39,what setting i use to the dip switch of the base detector.

It sounds like you have binary dip switches on the unit. If so, switches 1, 2, 3 and 6 should be on and the others should be off. on is up, off is down. Binary switches are as follows- 1=1, 2=2, 3=4. 4=8. 5=16. 6=32, 7=64 etc.

My carbon monoxide detector keeps beeping in spite of replacing thebattery and gives an error code of E09. Also it keeps flashing an err on the led redout. I placed it outside and it is still doing it...

Hopefully you have found a solution for your Carbon Monoxide Detector issue of October 4, 2009. The best solution for a questionable CO dectector is a replacement.

A Carbon Monoxide Detector is the only thing that will read, detect and sound an alert when reads dangerous levels of CO levels in your house. A defective carbon monoxide detector will give you and your family a false sense of security and will give you no protection.

Whenever in doubt, always err on the safe side and replace Carbon Monoxide Dectectors, your life depends on it.

How do i read a radar detector

When a radar or laser is detected, the unit will make noise. As you get closer to the source of the radar or laser, the noise will get louder and the signal levels (if you have a detector that shows signal level) will get stronger.
Since police officers like to wait until you are close to them, they may keep their radar guns turned off until you are very close to them. Once they turn it on, you are likely to be busted unless you can REALLY slow down quickly. Most radar guns take a series of average measurements on the speeding car. If the samples are too far apart, it keeps looking for a series of successive speeds that are close. This happens in a few tenths of a second.
SO even if you hear a SLIGHT noise from your detector, it may have been from a brief instant on radar gun in front of you, so BEWARE until you are sure that there is no threat.

The valentine detectors use multiple antennas to tell you where the signal is coming from. This is handy.

I want to block drop detector in hp plotter 1050c plus

If you are running the Drop Detector Test then all you have to do is open the Window and insert a thin piece of paper inside the Drop Detector in order to block it.

If you want to disable the Drop detector altogether than you can simply unplug the drop detector. This will result in a system error 0C0030 Bad Drop Detector.
