The volume quit working

I take it that you have no volume or audio at all coming from your STi, and that you have pressed the volume button to try to cycle up and down through the volume settings? If so, first lets try doing a factory reset which will resolve any corrupted memory settings. To do this, first power off your STi using its power button. With it powered off, hold down the volume and sensitivity buttons and while holding these two buttons down, press the power button. Release all three buttons as soon as "RESET" is displayed. After RESET was displayed, your STi should go through its normal startup sequence, with audio beeps and braps. If you here nothing, then your STi has a blown speaker and you will have to contact Beltronics to arrange for them to replace the bad speaker.

These don't detect like advertised

The detector will only work if there is a signal transmitting at the time. Depeding on what country you are in, police usually don't activate their radars three minuites before they register your speed. These are more meant for stationary speed cameras than hand-held ones.

How do i replace a broken speaker in passport 9500i

The speaker is manufactured by PUI, but it is a custom OEM job for Escort. So you can't get it from any distributor or from PUI. In the late summer of 2007 Escort started installing a new "high temp" speaker. This new speaker looks just like the original speaker, but it is designed to be able to handle very high temperatures without blowing. If your 9500i is still in warranty, Escort will replace the speaker with the new "high temp" speaker, test and calibrate your 9500i, and install whatever their latest firmware is. If your 9500i is out-of-warranty, then you should call them and see if they will send you a replacement "high temp" speaker for a small charge. The speaker is easy to replace. A good while back I posted on detailed instructions on how to replace a 9500i speaker. It takes all of 10 minutes to do.

Sound too low

The speaker could have gone bad. Or it simply could be corrupted settings for your saved user settings. To reset your V995 to the factory default settins:

-- Power off your V995 using its power button.
-- Hold down the two "Program" buttons and, while holding down these two buttons, press the Power button. Release all three buttons when "Reset" is displayed on your V995's display. Performing this factory reset forces the V995 to load the factory default settings which are permanently stored in a separate part of the firmware code. These settings then overwrite your stored preferences which are stored in another part of the memory. Now, all you have to do after performing this "factory reset" procedure is to once again set all settings to whatever you prefer.

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.

No sound, voice or beeps

Good Day Joe,

Sounds to me like the internal speaker went, this is actually common on radar detectors. Although 9yrs is a lot longer than most will last. If you are handy with a soldering gun you can replace the internal speaker with a new one and get it working again. However be sure to take the unit apart before getting a new speaker so you can match up the size as it varies.

Good Luck and I hope thi shelps

No sound from the bel 880 radar detector

I have the same detector and my sound just went out, I called the number on the label on the bottom. They where very friendly and told me that it was more than likely the little speaker, they sell them for $8, if you are handy with a soldering iron its a simple task.
