Default 9500ix laser doesn’t work or autolearn

My 9500ix doesn’t pick up Red light cameras or laser.I have definitely verified that.
It does pick up K band and ka however.
Do I need to send it in for repair?
I have doubled checked my preferences and they seem to be good.

The 9500ix does not auto-learn laser or Ka. It never has. It sounds to me that your unit is working as designed.

RLC warnings come from Defender, or from Escort Live, if you're running EL.

Have you tried a Factory reset?
Hold down "SEN+BRT then POWER ON".

How did you test laser?
How did you test for RL Cameras?
Did you somehow delete the Database (try a Merge to re-add it if you have a current subscription)?
Are you sure the manual GPS button is on (do you get a speed read out on the display)?

TBNTX noted that neither Laser nor Ka can be AutoLearned if that is your issue, which at this point, I'm not sure.
Be sure to test without EL.

I have not yet tried a factory reset.

The reason I ask about the laser, is the city bylaw officer was parked in front of my house yesterday and my truck was pointing right at the front of her car.
My detector didn't go off at all.She was using a hand held gun looking thru a sightglass at the cars through her window. I sat in my truck and tried to get my detector to go off for about 10 minutes while she was busy. I didn't even get so much as a beep out of my detector.
I come to the redlight camera where I recently got a ticket and the detector is silent as well. Nver have I heard the "Speedcam" go off either.
My gps light is flashing.
I am going to pay and get a subscription and download the database for Calgary,Ab.
I have never gotten a speed read from my detector,just K,KA AND X band.
My friend has the same detector and he has never downloaded anything but his 9500ix recognizes everything.

This is to be expected. Remember that Laser is a very narrow beam of light, and unless she was aiming it directly at your detector, it won't go off. Read this sticky note for a better idea why things are different between Laser and Radar.

Both of these indicate the GPS is not locked. Move the detector to another location or car or try in another car. Also, change the display preference to "Pilot Spd" to display speed once the GPS is locked. The GPS light must be on solid and not flashing. A flashing light is warning you of an unlocked GPS so you will not get any Camera Warnings nor will AutoLearn function.

If you can't get the GPS light to stay solid you will have to return it to ESCORT for repair, in which case they usually upgrade both the Software and Database to the latest available as part of the service.

You need to read this article on how laser works to better understand. Laser is nothing at all like radar.

Hmmmm...
don't know what's wrong but I cant get the gps signal indicator light to stop blinking.

I tried moving the detector outside my vehicle to get a signal, but no luck.
Also tried a factory reset...no luck
