A beltronics sti magnum radar detector !

It is a beltroncsti xr radar detector,serial numberAX044248

Mechanic's Assistant: What have you tried so far?

Recently I have turned it off & on again,periodically & that works on a temporary basis.However I would not have thought that small solid state unit costing $800 would ever need servicing ?
