Are you a first time radar detector user? If so, not all officers have radar guns and the ones that do may not have them on.

If you had a detector before and you are used to it alarming at known locations and now this unit doesn't then check the unit in another car and drive past the same area to see if it now alarms. If it does then there could be something electrical or you have a factory windshield that blocks radar signals.

Both are ok and both perform about the same. The 1730 is the newer of the two. Newer units will pick up further however.

Whistler 1783 detector shuts as soon as it goes thru start up mode. seems to get very hot to touch.


Try the factory reset - hold in the power and quiet buttons, while holding in these buttons plug in the power cord. Unit should beep twice. The unit will get warm to the touch.

Whistler 1730 keeps blowing fuses. no other problems with cigarette lighter plug


Is the lighter socket fuse blowing or the fuse in the unit's power cord? Have you tried another power cord from a Friends radar detector? If it doesn't blow that power cord's fuse, then your power cord is bad. If it does blow the fuse in the other power cord, there could be something wrong with the unit.

Got a whistler xrt-695 from individual. unit powers up goes thru all the frequencie alerts and laser alerts, scans menu to tell what is active. Seems to be perfect. x-band is on, K,Ka, Laser, all of it,...


how long have you had it? Have you had a radar detector before this one? Try a factory reset - hold in the power button and the quiet button, while holding in these buttons plug in the power cord. The unit will beep twice indicating that its reset. Remember the unit is not a "Cop" detector its a radar detector so not all police cars have radar in them and if they do they may not have it turned on.

Have a whistler 3000, and power is going to the unit but no lights are visible and unit seem to be working


First this is not a Whistler model, its a Fuzzbuster model. Does the unit 'Beep" when you turn it on? Does the lights flash during this time as well? If so, then the unit maybe working but not picking up signals.

My whistler 1778 radar detector wont pick up a signal? ive went past tons of cops but it never shows up. i have all my bands on. is there any settings i need to change or what?


Have you tried a factory reset? Hold in the power and quiet buttons at the same time. While holding in these buttons plug in the power cord. The unit should beep twice. Try that. If the unit still isn't right, call Whistler at 800-531-0004.

Found Whistler Spirit Triband radar detector in my basement. I drove with it and it seems to work; it beeps near radar police and randomly displays a P or C or H or 1 or 7. What do all those things mean?


That model only picks up X , K and the photo radar portion of Ka band, It doens't pick up the full Ka radar guns out there plus it doesn't pick up laser.

H= Highway mode
C= City mode
P= Pulse or instant-on type radar.
The numbers indicate signal strength - higher the number the stronger the signal.
