Please do not attempt to repair Escort detectors yourself.
Should I be concerned and or should I do a hard reset?
This is my second refurb and I really want this thing to work.
When the error message came on I was way out in the sticks so there was no way I could "test" if it was working by it alerting to false alerts.
Thank you for your questions Mtn Bike Mike, Escort detectors are extremely sensitive radar receivers that use self calibration technology to keep the detector performing optimally.

I rarely, if ever, leave my detector in my windshield due to theft concern.
I'm just glad the detector actually told me it wasn't working correctly.
Doing a factory reset forces the radar detector to load the factory default settings directly from the non-volatile firmware code, and these factory settings then overwrite your current and possibly corrupted settings.
