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.
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.
Power off the RD using its power button. Then hold down the two programming buttons and press the power button while holding down these the two programming buttons. Release all three buttons once RESET is displayed on the RD's display. Your 8500 has now been reset back to the original factory settings with all bands enabled. You can download a PDF duplicate of the original user manual from Escort's web site.
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.
