I had the same problem with my 955. Called Beltronics and gave them $30 on my credit card. Then sent it to them. It came back fixed 18 days later and has been working better than ever.

Now it does not over heat and I am as happy as can be.

Take apart 955 beltronics


There are 2 screws you need to remove. The first one is in the corner of the base (flip it over and you will see it). The second screw is under the Beltronics sticker on the base, right below the first hyphen in their USA phone number. If you rub your fingernail around that location, you should feel the depression. I didn't remove the sticker, I just stuck my screwdriver over the sticker and unscrewed it through the sticker. Hope this helps.

I bought it at a pawn shop, whenturned on, it says calibrate. How do i do that?


Hold down the "Brt" and "City" buttons as you power the unit on. This will reset the unit to it's default settings. It worked to restore mine to operation.

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.

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!

Beltronics V955 Chirps on all bands for 10 minutes when cold


This is most likely caused by a poor connection between the antenna ridge and the local oscillator board. Another possibility is an uncontrolled LO chamber harmonic due to the cold temperatures. Regardless of the cause, your V955 is under warranty and Bel will fix it for free -- as long as you include a photocopy of your sales receipt. Go to Bel's web site (www.beltronics.com), and either call their 800 number or do the online chat in order to get a RMA number.

BELTRONICS 940


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.
