Radar Detector
« on: May 21, 2006, 06:34:48 PM »

I have basic electronic knowledge.  My dad has a talking radar/laser detector for cop detection and it started acting up.   The voice was messed up and was choppy.   It seems to work perfectly fine otherwise(I think this had something to do with freezing cold weather in the past months).

Now it has no sound.  I think the speaker is shot.  Is there anyway I can fix this,  the rest of the electronics seem to work perfectly fine.

Rip it apart and try replacing the speaker.  Nothing to loose, right?

I would assume so.  Just have to get one that operates at the same voltage/current.  It's probably one those CMOS ones like computers use to have.  They are basically universal and easy enough to come by.

OK replaced with a cmos speaker and it worked.  Good thinking!  Thanks.  Now i need to figure out a way to cram the cmos speaker in the assembly or find a smaller speaker.  because the cmos speaker is a bit bigger.

I know people that have relocated the speaker so it's hidden and/or easier to hear.  Just a thought.
