Simple test: cover all the laser sensors with black tape - if the warning is still there then the unit is defective. In that case the only thing you can do is to take it to a dealer to have it tested and (if it's still in the warranty period) replaced.

Program button is stuck and shaking causes settings to change


Yes, you could remove the button and then your settings wouldn't change. Yet this will be difficult to do since the momentary button switch is very tiny and is difficult to desolder. Your best bet is to send your X50 to Escort for repair.

Compare laser Kat600 with escort 8500x50


The Escort 8500 X50 has better performance in all respects. As far as I am aware, Kat RDs are no longer being manufactured.

Getting false alarm from laser. Laser alarm keeps


If the laser continuously falses even with the car's ignition turned off, then your radar detector has an internal electronics problem. If your radar detector frequently or nearly continuously falses for laser while you are driving even in the middle of nowhere, then most likely the cause of the problem is either poor power and ground connections or electrical noise within your vehicle's electrical system. Jump over to radardetector.net for help in resolving these issues.

I have a passport excort 8500 X50 that signals maximum Ka and X over and over.


Are you getting any Self Calibration or Service Required error messages? If not, then this means that the basic electronics are good and that the problem is within the antenna. If your X50 is in warranty then Escort will repair the antenna for free. If not, then there will be a service fee ($80). Yet I can all but guarantee you that after Escort fixes the antenna problem then you will never have this problem again.The service fee also includes fully testing and calibrating your X50, and updating its internal computer firmware code to their latest code. So the end result is that your X50 will perform just like a brand new one.

Continuous alert


About the only thing to try with the Escort 8500 and the x50 is to do a full reset. Hold all 3 buttons down while turning the detector on. I believe Escort will still work on it, there will just be a service charge with no warranty.
