I bought my V1 4 years ago on ebay. It was new and the original box was still shrink wrapped. Its a 3.863.
Unfortunately, it has crapped out on me today .
I have to run it in U mode over here for the Redflex vans. I certainly helps with the K band range. However, when I looked at my concealed display here today, only the bottom half of the U was showing. Something like this I_I .
I thought this was weird so I shot at it with my Bushnell and it was only barely alerting to it but only as Ka band . It is not alerting to any falses on K band either.
I then went into programming and changed it back to A mode and it shows up as little L or "I_" mode on the screen despite that I have not changed the settings to put it in that mode . It does alert to K band in that mode but I seem to remember it was stronger on the regular falses before. Either way, in A (or whatever it thinks its in) mode it will not do much good for me over here .
I have tried the V1 on both the hardwire and cigarette lighter plug cords and its the same on both.
It is a 3.863 and there is still no E showing up either .
My settings on it are as follows...
1: arrow down
2: arrow up
3: arrow up
4: arrow up
5, 6, 7, 8 : arrow up
A E F G H I J : arrow up
U : arrow down (euro mode on)
Has anyone ever seen this before? I can imagine that not many users on here use theirs in U mode so Im guessing not but any advice would be appreciated .
I am probably going to have to send it in for repairs. Thankfully I have someone with a US address that will return it to me afterwards because VR will not ship outside the US.
