I have a V1 on 3.812 which has been very problematic for quite some time but ESPECIALLY as of late. My dad purchased the detector a long time ago but retired it because it just wasn't very reliable. I decided to give it a try and put it in my Mustang about a week and a half ago. It preformed pretty well in L mode but had some false alarms, but nothing terrible.
However, two days ago I went out with a friend who had a brand new V1 and his detector was reading some K band alerts while mine was silent. After some time of it reading and mine doing nothing, I restarted my detector by turning it off and then back on. It instantly picked up 1-3 (varying) KA band alerts at medium to high strength. Every since then, those alerts have not gone away anywhere I go for more than 10 seconds. The mode doesn't matter, the silence level doesn't matter, it just keeps flashing KA at low to all the way high strength. I am not sure what's wrong with it. It has falsed but never like this and never unceasing KA.

Is there any fix for this? Please help. A

I found some other forum posts of other users getting these but none of the fixes have done anything. I don't know what can fix it short of just shipping it off. However, that wouldn't explain why all of the sudden it just broke itself after years of working fairly well.

There are certain devices which can trigger Ka alerts such as some makes of dash cams and in-vehicle electronics. What kind of car are you driving?
