    Default V1 "no sound"

    Greetings All,

    I probably could have posted this in a more appropriate topic but, here goes;


    *PROBLEM
    I have a V1 as pictured....It lights up as manual says when booting and will alert to radar, etc....HOWEVER, there is NO SOUND, not even when booting up (so-to-speak).

    The control/volume knob and adjustment behind it is "all the way up" and still no sound....Without radar present, there is no way I am aware of that I could be sure that "mute" is not engaged without an existing signal to trigger unit.

    MY QUESTION:
    What is procedure to "UN-MUTE" this V1 AND, what is the SPECIFIC difference between "logic and advance logic" ?

    Thanks in advance.

    Logic mode reports weak X and K detections at a reduced volume level.
    Advanced login mode mutes those detections completely.

    You may want to have the unit looked at. Once an alert is muted, I don't believe you can unmute with a press of a button.

    Thanks for the reply -

    However, I should at least hear the "boot" sounds when booting up - I don't even hear those!...
    If I put my ear to the unit, I can hear the sounds but, otherwise nothing...

    I have sent the people at Valentine 5-6 messages for assistance and have not heard a xxx-damned word from them, NO RESPONSE WHATSOEVER!.....So much for their customer asistance because it doesn't exist!

    The unit has unusual screws holding the case on - How the "xxxx" do you get those screws out?....With what?...Using what??

    DId you ever get this resolved? For some reason I can't view your image nor can I send you a PM after being a member here since 2005. Have you tried using the V1 app to adjust the sound that way?

    Nope!....The non-existant V1 customer service has never responded to any of my many multiple e-mails...

    I will not be buying anything from them again...Money over Customer Service.....

    I have to now figure out as to how to remove the screws on the case to gain access.....It appears that the piece that emits the sound is loose or cracked - possibly from a fall from the window.

    Forget "apps", I do not have a cell phone nor do I want one...I got rid of mine a few years back due to 12-15 calls per day from spammers and telemarketers.

    NO....

    I never stated anywhere that I did...
    If they have no customer service on the net (which they have already proved that they don't) via e-mail, I certainly will not waste my time calling them.....
