    if its a remote control then the only thing it would/could be is Laser. maybe your laser LED is burnt out.

    not necessarily burnt out, it couldve just come un-soldered from the circuit bourd. ive never seen a 1788 before so i dont know what a laser alert looks like. it could be one light or it could be X+K+Ka lights. idk. im sure Boomerman could help you out once he sees this.

    EDIT: for some reason i was thinking of a completely wrong Whistler detector. sorry ops: . are you sure that the screen says nothing when you set it off?

    That model cascades the alert lights from right to left. That is the laser alert. My 1730 does the same thing. The siren tone that it makes is also unique to a laser alert.

    Would you say that the 1773 is better then a Pro 73? or just about the same?
