Worked ok, but it sound noise

Which model Whistler is it? Does the sound work during the self-test? Depending on the age of the unit Whistler may have the speaker for it. Call 800-531-0004 to check on availablity.

It wont detect cops

Does the unit alarm at all? If this your first radar detector? Does it light up and make a sound during the self test? If you have any more questions on this model - email and the reps at Whistler can help you.

I have a whistler XTR 550 that no longer makes a sound. i tried changing the settings to no avail.

Is the volume turned all the way up? (Sorry had to ask). If so and the unit does not make a sound during the self test then the speaker may be bad. If you had it less than a year then it should be covered under warranty. For more info contact whistler at or 800-531-0004

Have you tried it in another vehicle to see if it still alarms? The windshield pitting will not have any effect on the unit. After you test it in another vehicle contact Whistler at 800-531-0004.
