    Default Smart Cord problems???

    Hello,

    I have had my 8500 X50 for 6 months then all of a sudden one day it started power on/off.

    If I push on the cord telephone piece it stays on but without pressure it does not stay on.

    Anyone have any ideas? Buy a new cord? easy fix?

    Probably just needs the little phone plug replaced. You can get the tool to do it and the plugs at radio shack.

    The little retaining tab? I'd probably just put a small piece of electrical tape to hold it in...

    is it the hardwire smartcord? if so, check the fuse box. it may be loose in there. if not, see if you can find someone else with a cord to try
