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

Blinks service required constantly


This means that your V995 has repeatedly failed its internal self-calibration procedures. Like the message says, you need to send it to Beltronics for service.

I got the Service Required message. What do I need to do?


The Service Required message indicates that your RD has repeatedly failed its attempts to perform self calibration of its radar detection circuitry. Only Escort can repair this issue.

If this sounds like a dashboard alert for a fault then you need to have your car diagnosed by a computer to find the exact fault.It works out to be cheaper..Check digimotolite on google ...

Service required


This message is generated only after a Bel or Escort radar detector has repeatedly encountered problems while trying to self-calibrate its radar detection circuitry. The Service Required message literally means that you must send in your RD for service since there is nothing that can be done to fix whatever the problem is short of sending it in for factory service. At least it will come back working like brand new!

Beeps and says service required


This message occurs if your V995 can't properly calibrate its internal circuitry for the antenna. As the message implies, you need to send in your V995 for factory service.

Service Required means that your 8500 has repeatedly failed while attempting to calibrate its radar antenna. This can be fixed by Escort for free if your RD still is in warranty. There is a service fee if your RD is out of warranty, but at least Escort will fully test everything in addition to repairing your 8500, and they will upgrade your 8500's firmware to whatever their latest and greatest firmware is which may help to improve sensitivity, reduce false alerts, or to detect newer laser gun models.

You may have a voltage issue.Try to reset your detector. Hold the city and bright buttons until it resets. This should solve the message problem.
