Back in December 2004, I purchased myself an 8500 X50 and figured
I would buy one for my father since it was Christmas and
I was already talking to Escort...... I've had nothing but good
results with my Rev 5 but this morning I received some bad
news about my fathers unit.
Well, today I got a call from my father asking what "Service Required"
meant. He said that his X50 had flashed Self Cal once or twice in the
past but the message would disappear and the unit would
operate properly. He stated that "Service Required" did the
same thing this morning but he had to turn the unit on and off
to make the message disappear.
Question: If "Service Required" appears on the X50 but
doesn't constantly return, is the unit in need of repair. Will the
unit still work correctly if the message isn't displayed.....
Never had this happen to my unit so I'm looking to the experience
of others on this issue..... Knock on wood... I've never seen Sef Cal.
