I don't know this particular model. I will comment genericaly.

Most of these devices have an internal memory battery. Some models use a gold leaf capacitor.

In some models the memory battery is on solder terminals. If you are experienced at using a soldering station and know about how to change components on a circuit board, you can change this type of battery yourself. You will have to open the unit to get the battery part number.

If the unit uses a socketed type battery, this is a lot easier to change.

If the unit uses a gold leaf capacitor, the old one would have to be un-soldered from the circuit board, and the new one soldered back in.

Once you have the specifications for the required gold leaf capacitor, or the required battery, you can probably get these from most electronic parts suppliers.

There is a chance however that this manufacture is using proprietory parts. Then you will be forced to order original parts.

Rarely, it is possible that the memory storage problem is a bad IC on the circuit board. If the IC is a SMD device, you may not be able to change it with conventional soldering tools. This will be manufacture service only.

If you are not familiar with the above, you should call the manufacture to find out how to have your unit serviced by them or an authorized service place located near to you.

No sound on my vector 940


Beltronics is now using a special "high temperature" speaker which resolves issues with speakers blowing due to high ambient temperatures. Contact Beltronics and schedule service for your V940. Not only will Bel replace the speaker with the newer model, but they will also test and calibrate your V940 and install whatever the current firmware is for your V940.

Radar detector stopped working!


Either your V940 has an internal problem, or your car's alternator has gone bad and is overcharging the car battery. It is one or the other.

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.

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.
