Power cords for small electric devices supply a specific combination of volts and amps (milliamps) to the device. Most power cords of this type are actually mini step down transformers used to regulate the voltage/amperage to a pre determined level that matches the device, using a cord that has a lower volt/amp level may do nothing as the power level is not high enough to power the device, but using a cord with a higher than specified level will almost certainly destroy the sensitive electronic components (resistors, capacitors, etc.) inside making the circuit board that controls the device useless. Check your device and owners manual for a reset switch (I doubt it has one though), or if it is valuable, you may want to search for an electronics repair store (they are getting hard to find) and see if it can be repaired. This applies to most all small electronics from phones to computers, use the supplied power cord, and if you purchase an aftermarket power supply device make sure the voltage/amperage numbers match exactly. In the end saving a few dollars on a cord can be very expensive.

Sounds like a dirty receptacle. If you're a smoker, I guarantee that's the problem. Take the cigarette lighter fuse out of your vehicle and clean the receptacle with sandpaper wrapped around a small stick. Good luck!

I called cobra support(777-889-3087) and it was around $6 plus shipping for a replacement speaker.
the correct phone number for cobra support is 773-889-3087 and can be found on their website.
Cobra was very courtious and I also got my replacement speaker for my XRS-9500.!

These are just the frequency ranges, or "bands" that your detector is detecting the frequencies...
X, K, Ka (Kappa-Alpha) are different bands of frequencies.
