Beltronics radar detector gives constant alert after startup.


This is caused by the RD's local oscillator becoming unstable at higher temperatures due to a component which has become defective. Since this is an older radar detector model, you will have to pay a service charge to have it fixed. On the other hand, perhaps it is time to upgrade your remote installation to either the Escort 9500ci or the Bel STi-R setups? These newer models from Bel/Escort provide much better performance.

No display


Have you tried doing a factory reset of the firmware as described in the user manual? To do this, first power off your RX65 using its power button. Then hold down the two buttons which are used to enter Program Mode and, while holding down these two buttons, press the Power button again. Release all three buttons when the word "Reset" is displayed on the LED display. Obviously, if the display doesn't light up, then either the display itself is defective or one of its display leads has a cold solder joint.

If your RX65 is in warranty and you can make a photocopy of your sales receipt, then Bel will repair it at no charge. You will have to pay the shipping cost to Bel.

My silve Bullet won't turn on.


Buy either a Bel, Escort, Whistler or Valentine radar detector. The Silver Bullet has horrible performance compared to these other brands.

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.

V955 does not work


Turn the unit off and then, while holding down the City and Brt buttons, turn it back on. This restores the factory default settings. Worked for mine with the exact same problem. Be sure to use the power switch though. If you just unplug the cord and plug it back in, it won't work.

Bel RX65 not working properly


Regarding the problem of the unit turning on for a second, then turning off after you plug it in....

Plug it in and hold the power button down for 5 seconds. This resets the unit. The unit will still turn off after this however. After that, push the power button on again for one second and it should remain on. Good Luck!
