Question about Passport 8500 Radar Detector

1 Answer

Error Message? I had my Passport 8500 (NOT X50) for about 4 months when I noticed sometimes it would not work when I turned it on. Then one day, it was ALL the time. When I plug it in/turn the wheel to turn it on, it goes through it's usual diagnostics where it checks the different bands and everything. After a few seconds, it freaks out and says "ERROR" on the front. Is there a way to fix this? I know if I hold down both buttons it is supposed to reconfigure itself but that doesn't work either. Help me!!

    I just plugged it in via my phone cordfor the first time in over a month and it now works fine. But, I know it will happen again eventually, so I still would like some help.

    Also, I tried the 2 button thing and managed to discover a cool programming feature which includes several different items. Anybody know what these all mean? Thanks!

To reconfig the device you need to hold down all three buttons(not two)

7,010.43:40975 error message for the Xerox Phaser 8500 printer.

The printhead is stuck in the tilted position. Did you have a power outage or turn it off by unpuging it? Not hard to fix but you have to tear it down and rehome everything. sometimes if you turn it off and turn it back on it will find home on itself. But rehomeing it works every time. If you dont know how to do this call a service center.

8500 Alerts for no aparent reason

Got to the bottom of my false alarming situation. I finally called Escort and discussed the behavior with the technician who immediately concluded the antenna was failling and needed a repair. $30 worth of shipping and about a week later I got my repaired unit back and it works perfectly. Not sure the root cause but I am going to treat it as gently as possible and hope it keeps working, I sure like it better than the V1.

Continuous alert

About the only thing to try with the Escort 8500 and the x50 is to do a full reset. Hold all 3 buttons down while turning the detector on. I believe Escort will still work on it, there will just be a service charge with no warranty.

Escort, passport 8500

Hold all three buttons down at the same time to reset the device. If this doesn't work it probably needs to be sent back for repair/reflash. Jack
