Question about Vector 995 Radar Detector
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.
