I was curious if anyone else had had this exact issue. I'd searched the forum and seen some similiar stories, but nothing identical.
I can sit in my driveway, and watch Laser go off. Repeatedly. I've taken the X50 on > 5 Road trips, had it for the better part of a year, never had this issue. Suddenly one day, I'm driving down the road and Laser goes off. I start looking for a stationay unit, and see nothing. I mute the alert and keep driving. Sure enough, 45secs later, it fires again, and again and again. By the time I'd turned Off Laser, I'd made it to the other side of the city. No changes to my ignition system (my car has neither plug wires or a distributor (Coil on Plug Ignition)) nothing new, I am using the factory smartcord and haven't customed anything. I was just the middle of a drive. In the end the only solution I could come up with, was to turn off Laser. A solution I am FAR less than pleased about. I turned it off, then back on later (6 days) to see if the problem had gone away. Not a minute after re-enabling Laser, did it throw out a false Laser alert. I immediately turned Laser back off.
However, then I hop in the car today, and what do I see? This:
"Self Cal", I read the most recent thread about this. Sure enough, this doesn't make it look much better either.
I've called Escort and been given an RMA #, I'll be shipping them my unit. I don't have high hopes for repair/an explaination, but I wanted to know if anyone else had cases like this with their X50's and if so, what solutions or causes they had figured out.
Car: 1994 Toyota Camry, Settings: I run (in the city) in City + NoX Mode, so to remove the X Band. As Noted, I've not modified the power cord, nor has the unit been changed in any way.
Anywho, thanks for any input given.
