Escort Passport 850 X50 wont turn on

I have two passport 850 X50 with the same problem, they wont turn on when plugged into the cars lighter. They are about 4 years old , but have been sitting on a shelf for two years since they stopped working. I initially had one stop then switched to the other which stopped about six months later ...both units just seem to have burned out and simply can't be powered up. Sorry the discription here is so lame.

Hold all three buttons down at the same time to reset the device. If this doesn't work it probably needs to be sent back for repair/reflash. Jack

Are you getting any Self Calibration or Service Required error messages? If not, then this means that the basic electronics are good and that the problem is within the antenna. If your X50 is in warranty then Escort will repair the antenna for free. If not, then there will be a service fee ($80). Yet I can all but guarantee you that after Escort fixes the antenna problem then you will never have this problem again.The service fee also includes fully testing and calibrating your X50, and updating its internal computer firmware code to their latest code. So the end result is that your X50 will perform just like a brand new one.

This is an error message which indicates a specific internal component failure. Escort will have to fix your 8500.

The problem is a defective micro switch underneath the City button. Contact Escort about setting up a RMA to get your X50 fixed.

Continuous alert


About the only thing to try with the Escort 8500 and the x50 is to do a full reset. Hold all 3 buttons down while turning the detector on. I believe Escort will still work on it, there will just be a service charge with no warranty.
