Good Day Joe,

Sounds to me like the internal speaker went, this is actually common on radar detectors. Although 9yrs is a lot longer than most will last. If you are handy with a soldering gun you can replace the internal speaker with a new one and get it working again. However be sure to take the unit apart before getting a new speaker so you can match up the size as it varies.

Good Luck and I hope thi shelps

HOW DO I TURN ON THE AUTO MUTE ON A COBRA ESD 8285


When changing the Settings on your detector, please keep in mind: Each time the unit is turned On the factory settings of Highway and Auto Mute-On will be set. They can be changed while the unit is in use as described in the following sections.
Assistance Muting An Alert
Your detector allows you to quickly turn Off an audio Alert by momentarily pressing the Mute button. If you press the Mute button a second time during the Alert, the audio Alert will be turned back On.
Auto Mute Mode Auto Mute will automatically reduce the audio volume of all alerts after four (4) seconds for as long as the signal is detected. The factory setting for Auto Mute is On.
Highway/City Mode Setting your detector to City mode delays all X band audio alerts at lower signal strength levels. (A single beep will sound when the signal is first Notice detected.) This will reduce false alerts while you are driving in, or near, urban areas where there are many sources for conflicting X band signals such as microwave towers and automatic door openers. To change settings, follow the procedure listed below, which indicates what you will see and hear as you complete each step. The factory setting is Highway mode.
Highway Mode City Mode
Mute Button Press and release
To Turn Auto Mute Off X Ka L S
City Button Press and release
Press and release the Mute button while no alert is occurring.

Bel STi Short or Loose Connection


This most likely is due to a blown internal speaker which has shorted across its voice coil rather than becoming an open circuit. Bel/Escort now uses special "high temp" speakers which resolve any failing speaker issues due to higher temperatures. I assume that your STi is out of warranty. Yet, it will be worth it ($80) to have the speaker replaced and to have your STi flashed with the latest firmware which also gives the STi a true audio ramp-up rather than just the original slow or fast audio beeps to indicate the strength of the detected radar. The new firmware also includes slight performance enhancements, and includes better filtering for Autoscan mode. This latter enhanced Autoscan filtering makes the STi noticeably quieter while driving around town.

How do I use my Bel express 910.


I don't have a users manual for mine either! I found this link that helps a little bit to describe some elements of the detector...

No audio


Hi everyone,

Bel/Escort now uses a special and proprietary "high temp" speaker which resolves issues of speakers blowing due to high ambient temperatures or heat which builds up within the speaker when it is alerting for extended periods of time. If your RX65 is in warranty and you can make a photocopy of your sales receipt, then great! All you have to pay is shipping to Bel. Bell will replace the speaker with the new version, flash your RX65 with whatever the latest firmware is, and calibrate and test your RX65 too. So, all of this is peachy if your RX65 is under warranty.

If your RX65 is out-of-warranty or if it doesn't have a serial number or was bought from a non-authorized dealer, then the service charge as I recall is $80. Thats not bad since your RD will come back working like brand new.

A note about the speakers: They are made by PUI, but the speakers are proprietary to Bel/Escort. Thus you can not buy them from any source -- not even direct from PUI.

How may I set the vg 2 on my express 795?


Entering Selectable Features Mode
1. With the unit OFF, press and hold the CITY button then press
the PWR/VOL button. The amber X LED will illuminate and a short
“beep” will sound.
2. Immediately after the “beep”, digit #1 will appear and indicate
the status of the sws™ Selectable Feature. To select digit #2 (VG-2
Guard®), press the CITY button again. To select digit #3 (sws™
Voice), press the CITY button a third time and to select digit #4
(Digital Voice prompts for Radar/Laser/VG-2 Guard®) press the
CITY button once again. Use the CITY button to select one of the
four digits.
3. If the selected digit is solid, feature is ON, but may be canceled
by pressing the AUDIO button. Two “beeps” and the flashing digit
will confirm feature is OFF.
4. If the selected digit is flashing, the feature is OFF, but may be
activated by pressing the AUDIO button. A single “beep” and
solid illumination will confirm the feature is ON.
5. Press the PWR/VOL button to retain your new settings for Selectable
Features. Two “beeps” will confirm that you have exited from
Selectable Features Mode and your unit will be ON.

Bel 880 sound


Call bel, the number is on the label on the bottom, I am having the same problem with mine, he was very helpful and said it was probably the speaker which they sell for $8. If your handy with a soldering iron its simple repair. Or they offer a trade up service, giving you like $80 towards a new unit.
