Question about Whistler DE-1793 Radar Detector

No Sound Everything works except the sound. may have been heat induced by the defroster, I'm not sure. I reset to default setting, still no sound. This unit is two years old, I bought it at Costco. Whistler wants $55 to repair, but I can buy a new one for $89.

Whistler wanted $55 to repair this detector, so I bought a different brand and will never buy another whistler again.

Everything lights up and is working,but i have no sound


Do you accidentally have it muted? The Mute button, located on PASSPORT's top panel and SmartCord. Have you turned up the volume on it? Volume Control (VOL) To increase or decrease the audio volume, press and hold the (+) or (-) volume control buttons located on the top case. A sample alert tone will be generated, along with a corresponding bar-graph on the display. Once you have reached your desired volume level, simply release the button. This level will be stored in memory. In Preferences Auto Volume is the default. This feature will increase the audio alert level automatically when the ambient noise in the vehicle is high. Good luck.

How to get it started to work. its because i have passed by cops before and it won't beep of anything and i really don't know how to operate it.


Make sure that the uint is in HIGHWAY mode. Is the unit reporting radar but is not making a sound or not reporting at all? You can do a factory reset too. Hold in the power and quiet buttons, while holding in these buttons,plug in the power cord, the unit should beep twice.

Won't go off


The first thing to try is to do what is called a "factory reset". What this does is to force your RD to reload all of its factory default settings straight out of the programmed firmware. These new settings will then overwrite any present settings which may be corrupted. Here is how to do it (specifically for the Solo S2):

Solo S2’s Factory Settings
To reset Solo S2 to its original factory settings,press and hold the Mute and M (Mode) buttons while turning Solo S2 on.Solo S2’s display will provide a “Reset” message,accompanied by an audible alert,acknowledging the reset.

Beltronics 940 Radar aDector will not pick up signal


Try doing a "factory reset" per the instructions in the user manual. Sometimes the firmware settings get hosed, and performing a reset restores proper operation.

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.

V955 does not work


Turn the unit off and then, while holding down the City and Brt buttons, turn it back on. This restores the factory default settings. Worked for mine with the exact same problem. Be sure to use the power switch though. If you just unplug the cord and plug it back in, it won't work.

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

8500 Alerts for no aparent reason


Got to the bottom of my false alarming situation. I finally called Escort and discussed the behavior with the technician who immediately concluded the antenna was failling and needed a repair. $30 worth of shipping and about a week later I got my repaired unit back and it works perfectly. Not sure the root cause but I am going to treat it as gently as possible and hope it keeps working, I sure like it better than the V1.

Bel 880 sound


Call bel, the number is on the label on the bottom, I am having the same problem with mine, he was very helpful and said it was probably the speaker which they sell for $8. If your handy with a soldering iron its simple repair. Or they offer a trade up service, giving you like $80 towards a new unit.
