Escort 8500 radar detector
Service Required means that your 8500 has repeatedly failed while attempting to calibrate its radar antenna. This can be fixed by Escort for free if your RD still is in warranty. There is a service fee if your RD is out of warranty, but at least Escort will fully test everything in addition to repairing your 8500, and they will upgrade your 8500's firmware to whatever their latest and greatest firmware is which may help to improve sensitivity, reduce false alerts, or to detect newer laser gun models.

Got a ticket, passport never made a sound
You may have received a laser hit or a qucik shot on the radar. We don't normally keep the radar on constant - a click of the button sometimes real fast will grab your speed, lock on the display and then the signal will cease to omit.
You may also want to check to see if you are set on city of highway.

Laser warning going off all the time
I fixed my Radar, No Manufacturer help, no cost to me at
all. I got advice from a forum member on a satellite forum I belong to.
So what I did was I took apart the radar. Watch carefully how it comes
apart so you can reassemble again after. Get a Dry Q-tip (ear swab)
leave it dry so you do not end up leaving and residue on the diodes
etc. Start by cleaning the horn, wipe the electronic board all over
gently with the Qtip , blow ou the diffusion screen (leave the spit in
your mouth). After all that I did not see a spec of dirt on the Q tip I
no sign of dirt, residue but whatever I did do
fixed the problem. I have been using it for three months and not one
false alarm from the laser mode.
Good luck all......
