    Default Power Issues

    After a solid 3 years of use, i began to notice that the power cord I've been using had began to deteriorate from hanging on my windshield for so long. I decided to unplug it to inspect, and indeed, some of the copper wires were no longer even touching where they should be. I plugged it back in regardless for the remaineder of the ride home only to find my V1 no longer turned on. I figured it was the faulty power cord, so I drove home, went inside, grabbed the coiled power cord, and plugged it in. Still not powering on.

    Anyone have an ideas what's wrong? The power v 12 power jack definitely still works (my ipod holder powers up, phone charges, etc) and I tried a regular phone cord as well.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated! I feel naked without my v1.

    If you were using the cig. adapter with the worn cord, you probably shorted it out and blew the fuse in the cig. lighter v1 adapter.
