The intent of this post is two fold--diagnose and then see if anyone with experience with Escort CS can give me some insight on how to get a replacement.
I initially started having problems with my X50 from day 3 after purchase (April 2007). Constant X, K, Ka alerts that would be at full strength at random. Could be sitting in my garage and it would happen.
Sent to repair--they adjusted the antenna.
Considering I had a cross country trip to make AND had to mail my unit in, I bought another at BB and returned it, paying the restocking fee. No problem, I was willing to do that.
Got my unit back---still having the same problem, worse actually.
Sent to repair--this time they replaced the PCB and updated it. Don't know what that means but it was on the return card I got with the unit.
Now, I'm not having the same problems I had before but new problems.
I'm getting X falses but in a particular pattern. A few fast beeps, a pause, three or four short beeps and then one beep. Quiet for 10-15 seconds and the same thing. This was in Hwy mode so I switched to City and it stopped. BUT, as we are all well experienced with RD's, this was not your average X leakage (doors, etc) you get in the city. It was an audible pattern that spanned many miles (where I normally do not get falses) and was in a timed pattern. Sometimes, it would just go full bar X for no reason.
Then, I pull up in front of a store I visit every other day and I get a constant laser false I've never received before. It did it again when I pulled into my parking space at my apt. This was on City mode.
I'm very frustrated with Escort as their answer to everything is "send it in". I'm tired of sending it in and getting no acceptable results. Dare I say, I'm about to scrap this unit and get a V-1. If this is the result I can expect from Escort for support....bah...
