As I'm driving home tonight with the 955, staying 20 below psl because of all the stupid f***s who feel the need to drive so slow after just 4" of snowfall, and the roads being plowed perfectly clear, I catch a glimpse of the 955s display suddenly going blank. Look down at smartcord, power light is off and I check that the plug is secure in the cig lighter. It is. I hit the power button on the RD and hear the usual clicking noise and both red/green lights illuminate on the smartcord as long as the power button is held in, but RD won't power on. I try again a minute later and it powers up, but not for long. I come home and try to power it up again, nothing; the reset combination won't boot it up, and for some reason I tried the tutorial mode combination and still nothing.
Swapped it out with the X50, which is working fine so its not a wiring/fuse issue.
I have couple of days to see if it wants to behave or Bel gets a call Monday. I was considering sending it in for a checkup and a case/lens replacement last June after it was subjected to the heat and smoke from the house fire, but strangely its had better performance than before the fire and it consistently beats my X50 which is why I've been using the 955 almost exclusively.
