Since the past week or so, I've been coming across more and more problems with my 8500x50.
Upon start-up, sometimes the detector will freeze, then Self Cal will appear on the screen. Also, randomly as I am driving, Self Cal will appear on the LED Screen.
In addition, sometimes the detector will not even detect K band MPH signs placed on the side of the road or highway. I have to always unplug the cord, and plug it back in and it will finally recognize the signal.\
Upcoming to the past couple weeks, I have been getting full K band alerts on the highway. I believe they are TSRs, traffic monitoring signals. Is this true? Anyway to defeat it?
Lastly, sometimes under acceleration LASER will suddenly appear, when I am just starting to drive or any other random moments when I know for a fact that I'm not getting hit. I'm just going to turn this off though, this is the least of my worries.
Like I said, I'll get Self Cal at least 4-5 times during a 30 minutes drive, and It's getting really annoying. Anything to fix it? I assume I can send it into Escort for a tune-up, anyone know what the cost is of it?
EDIT: Just going out for pizza, plugging the Escort in, the radar can't even start-up correctly and Self Cal appears along with Service Required. My radar is no longer functional. Please Help
