I bought the Escort Max around 2014 or 2015. It worked great for years. It would start chirping and grow louder as it approached radar. Saved me quite a few tickets.

during all these years, it chirped but now there is no chirping, either a blank white screen or "caution" or "slow down" with yellow background comes up. Also, occasionally it shuts down.

I guess it's done. Has anyone had this happen to them? I never saw the "slow didn't for 4 years and now that comes on and there is no chirping.

As they say....RTFM :)

You need to change the setting from Simple mode back to Advanced, somehow they were adjusted.

That said....have you updated the firmware lately? If not that is a MUST DO! Let us know if you need help with that as well.

Its the original Max, not Max2. In any case, if you can tell me how to get the original setting back, will appreciate it. How do you update the firmware too?

Max/Max2 are essentially the same - Just the addition of a BT chip. If you RTFM it will tell you how to adjust your settings.

As for updating you have to download Detector Tools (NOT the pro version) here:

Install on a computer and follow the instructions. Easy! Enjoy!
