Valentine one doesnt work

If you can, I'd recommend it taken back for replacement or have a stereo/audio shop look at if you think its worth it.

Can you tell me what is wrong with my valentine one radar detector please

Old thread but This is probably a fried DC/DC converter inside the detector. Fuses are good for shorts but connecting to double the operating voltage will kill your electronics every time. Valentine 1 is the best. I beat laser with mine. Mike Valentine stands behind his product but you broke it so they probably will charge you for repair. If you have 24V system for stereo then any plugs or terminals need to be obviously marked. Try using a color that you can't mistake like yellow. .Or use a 12v power amp and your neighbors will be much happier.

My Valentine One wont power up and the plug in car works the fuses are fine everything works but when i turn on for power to start the valentine One I here nothing no sound no lights. What do u think it my...

Check the fuse inside the cigarette lighter adapter that came with your V1. You'll have to pop the top off with the hinge to access a hidden screw (star pattern). Total of 3 screws. Inside you should find a 2 amp mini blade fuse, your V1 should have come with an extra fuse (mine did). I had the same issue, no power, changed the fuse and power cord, powered right up.

My valentine one will not pick up speed camera vans now it was working on KA band then went to K band now will not pick up?

They are using instant-on radar that has a weak K-band signal that is used to turn on the radar when you are in range. The signal is so weak that you cant detect it until you are in range of the main radar set. This is also known as radar detector countermeasures. Laser is worse. I have beaten laser twice with my Valentine 1 in California where it requires 2 reads to nail you. Slam on the brakes when your detector alerts..

Contact the Valentine one folks or go to their site. I believe that you can enter your serial number and the site will tell you if you have the latest software update on your detector. If you do, great. If not, I expect that you will need to return the unit for an update.

Detector stuck on 2 threats at all times

Sounds like the unit needs repair. Valentine is very good usually and their repair service is good. I have had one for 5 years - no problems.

My valentine 1 radar detector gives afalse alert to the rear

It has to go back in for service. Possibly the tech either forgot or didn't properly reflow the solder contacts on the LO board which makes contact between the LO board and the horn's ridge. It isn't something which you should even think about attempting to repair yourself. Send it back in and they will get it right this time.

Where to mount in BMW 750LI

i know this respone is late but better than never....

i not that experenced with radar detectors but try to place where ever you can higher is better for police cars with k or ka band but in NZ(New Zealand) we have photo radar that has a low freq Ka band that is facing towards the road at under 45 degree angle. for this you would need to place the radar lower to get better range. So decide on what type of radars you are likely to run into and then decide where to mount the valentine one then consult a tinting company if the can cut a strip of coating out where you want to mount the valentine one. but as the valentine is a very good radar it might be able to go through the coating and only minimise the distance by a little bit but i would try it in a car without the coating then with the coating to see the difference and if it is to much or a problem then you could always mount the V1 on the front of the car then use a concealer display that can be purchased from V1's website
