Question about Vector 995 Radar Detector

1 Answer

BEL Radar Detector +

The detectors shut off and then come on again when I hit a bump or sometimes not. Then "Service Required" comes on the screen. I'm tired of paying BEL to repair these. Currently I wrapped a rubber band around the cord on the detector to pull it at an angle and it worked for awhile but now the problems is starting again. When "Service Required" comes on I just turn it off and on again and it's good till the nest bump in the road. I think the problem is the telephone type connector is not making good contact. Is there way to fix this myself?

Beltronics radar detector gives constant alert after startup.


This is caused by the RD's local oscillator becoming unstable at higher temperatures due to a component which has become defective. Since this is an older radar detector model, you will have to pay a service charge to have it fixed. On the other hand, perhaps it is time to upgrade your remote installation to either the Escort 9500ci or the Bel STi-R setups? These newer models from Bel/Escort provide much better performance.

Service required


This message is generated only after a Bel or Escort radar detector has repeatedly encountered problems while trying to self-calibrate its radar detection circuitry. The Service Required message literally means that you must send in your RD for service since there is nothing that can be done to fix whatever the problem is short of sending it in for factory service. At least it will come back working like brand new!

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.

This is a somewhat common problem that occurs when a strong voltage spike while starting your car damages the radar detector. Bel can fix your RD. Once you get it back, always start your car first before powering on your radar detector. Likewise, power off your radar detector before turning off your car's ignition.
