Question about Passport 8500 X50 Radar Detector
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.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

The service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

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.
