Everything sounds and lights up when I turn it on, but there is only a line displayed instead of the regular "L" ready symbol.
Today as I got back into my car, I turned it on and it went through the
signals and then remained at the "ready" position as normal, however
instead of displaying the normal "L" to say that it was ready, it
simply looked like "_", like just the bottom of the L or a straight line. I
noticed on my way home that all of the little detections that go off
from electronic doors and the speed detector within my housing
development were working, although seemingly strained, and that my
display wasn't changing to tell the kind of band, never changing from
the little line display.
I know the lights are all working because as I said before, when it starts up all of them light up perfectly.
I checked my manual and it says nothing about an error of this kind.
Has anyone heard of this or know about what it is and what I can do to

Put the back of the ipod to your head and press a button. If you don't hear a nice whirring sound but a clicking, then the hard drive is bad. An iPod classic uses a laptop drive with a different connector and can be replaced.
You have the unit in dark mode. Press the Dim/Dark button again to get the unit to full brightness. THe unit has 3 levels of DIM. First the unit is at its full brightness, pressing the dim/dark button will dim the display and the unit functions normally. Press the Dim/Dark button again will futher darken the display but when the unit alarms the display is turned off and remain off during the alert. After the alert is over the unit waits 20 seconds of no alert to turn the display back on.
Do you accidentally have it muted? The Mute button, located on PASSPORT's top panel and SmartCord. Have you turned up the volume on it? Volume Control (VOL) To increase or decrease the audio volume, press and hold the (+) or (-) volume control buttons located on the top case. A
sample alert tone will be generated, along with a corresponding bar-graph on the display. Once you have reached your desired volume level, simply release the button. This level will be stored in
memory. In Preferences Auto Volume is the default. This feature will increase the audio alert level automatically when the ambient noise in the vehicle is high. Good luck.
X band is usually some electrical signal not to worry. K band is usually a radar sign or machine that tells you your speed. (Small town Sheriffs use this band also because they cant afford newer technology) Ka means K band America- If you see this symbol slow down and look around. Ku means K band Europe- If you see this symbol slow down and look around
You may have received a laser hit or a qucik shot on the radar. We don't normally keep the radar on constant - a click of the button sometimes real fast will grab your speed, lock on the display and then the signal will cease to omit.
You may also want to check to see if you are set on city of highway.
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.
