The problem never happens to me when it is not a hot day
my problem always happens when i turn the unit on, not while already riding/driving out of the blue

i believe the problem might be from the unit getting hot from being in a car, or on a motorcycle, or in a jacket in the hot sun then powering it up while still very hot, some kind of overheat circuit

find a way to cool it off, ride a short distance with it turned off then turn it on or...

also take the 8500 in you right hand and tap it in you left hand 3-5 times, it should start up and be fine. this doesn't have anything to do with temperature but i've had luck with it

It doesn't sound


Your 9500i likely has a blown speaker. Contact Escort about sending in your RD to have its speaker replaced.

Taking apart escort passport 8500?


I thought that the 8500 used Phillips head screws. If its not Phillips head, then possibly you need an appropriate sized Torx screwdriver.

Laser problem with radar detector


This is caused from voltage fluctuation. Your car will draw down power from the radar detector and it goes off. Passport/escort need to come out with an inline voltage conditioner. Maybe soon.
