Hey all ive searched around a bit on here trying to see if someone else has had a similar problem but no dice. 3 days ago I bought a 2nd hand Bel STI XR windscreen mounted detector that has been working well, has picked up laser and 2 k-band radars and was not found by a RDD when I drove past a car equipped with one. (along with the usual k-band doors)
The problem is after 5 mins of usage it has the old 'service required' with beeping message come up. I have just been unplugging and plugging it back in and its fine for another 5 mins. Do I really need to get it serviced or is there a way to reset/flash it to stop this annoyance?
The best range I got was from a k-band from about 450M away coming around a corner and the worst was tonight from about 100M coming over a hill.
I have no idea if its in warranty and I don't have a receipt for it so whats the standard repair fee if it does need to be fixed?
Also what are some good settings to have it on for band detection? I have it on default settings for highway use? (I do 90% highway driving).
Thanks in advance all and mostly thank you beltronics!
(the laser car with RDD that bel saved me from yesterday)
