Samsung YX-M1 Broken Adapter Port - Now what?

Hello!

I bought this radio a year and 1/2 ago. I use it daily snapping into the car cradle, house cradle and I snap in the headphone/antenna when I want to listen to the radio when taking the dog for a walk around the neighborhood.

With all of this snapping of the radio into cradles and headphone sets the port on the side of the radio is worn out. The cheap parts used (plastic) in the port have worn out. Now I get no antenna connection when the radio is in the house cradle or when I snap in the headphone/antenna set.

I am infuritated that after spending $300 on this device 16 months ago and nopw I have to deal with this. What are my options now?

Thank you for your time.
Gary

Hi,

You can try sending it to an authorized Samsung service center near your location;

You can try a qualified professional who performs electronics repairs or your friendly neighborhood electronics shop;

Or, if you are planning a DIY, have you tried sourcing eBay for similar devices. There are Samsung YX-M1 for sale that are defective and may be source of parts. Here , here or here are some examples.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Hi gwjm56

I'm afraid trying to fix it yourself would be a bit risky as this could cause further damage.

If I were you I would rather contact Samsung and have them take a look at the unit and give a quote first before you make any decisions.

Thanks for using Fixya !

    You've really got to weigh up your options here.



    I just checked out Amazons.com and this specific model now goes for $13.99.



    Get the quote for repair and if it's just half that of a new unit , rather purchase a new one.

Sony bravia lcd tv 40 inch


I have a Sony Bravia 46'' TV. I bought a Universal WiFi Adapter from Walmart a few years ago for about $50. You have to plug it into the Ethernet port on the Bravia using an Ethernet cable (the other end of the Ethernet cable goes into the Ethernet port on the adapter). The adapter needs also a power outlet. I do not remember if the adapter came with the Ethernet cable (likely) or I had to buy it separately.

Before buying the adapter make sure that:

1. Your Bravia has an Ethernet port (on my Bravia it is in the back of the TV), and
2. You have/use a wireless router for your home network.

Hope this helps.

Wow, tough break! It's not only a matter of physical dexterity and skill, but also one of availability! Before you ponder it too long, you might try to see if it's even possible to get your capable hands on one.

If you can get one, you've got an uphill battle ahead of you. It's a tough, complex unit with very delicate innards.

Can you repair it? Possibily. Can you repair it without causing irrepairable damage to it? That remains to be seen. Good luck, but unless you've got a reasonable amount of experience with modern electronics, it's not for the faint of heart!

I have my skyfi pluged into my computer and it blinks and is not charging or connecting what should I do?


I do not believe the usb charging is supported. Reading others notes, I am not sure it will charge your unit. I had the same problem and had to put it in the cradle and plug it into my car to charge. I went on line and bought an ac adapter so I can charge in my house.

Garmin nuvi is no longer charging via car adapter. I plug it into the car lighter as usual, but it never charges and continues to operate off of battery life.


Your car adapter may be broken. try unscrewing the top of it to check the fuse inside the cable. that can easily be replaced. other than that it could be the cradle (if your cable plugs into your cradle) or the back port of the unit in a worst case scenario

Delphi Skyfi2 won't turn on anymore.


I have the Skyfi 2 with car cradles. I have had them for about 7-8 years. I bought two brand new power cords to use with the cradles so I could move the Skyfi 2 to different vehicles. Neither power cord will power up the Skyfi 2 when in the cradle. I contacted the company I bought them from and they sent me two more cords. These cords are brand new as well. They too do not power the unit. My original power cord still powers the unit but I am trying to eliminate having to move it to each vehicle. I then bought a complete unopened kit from ebay. Using the new kit parts only, my Skyfi 2 will not power up. Did they change the kit since I bought mine and now it is not compatible. Everything looks identical so it is driving me nuts. Any help is appreciated, Thanks!

Take it back the store where you bought it at. It sounds like a broken system?

If under warranty get a replacement. If not, you are beat, they are dead when they stop getting signal and you have tried different antenna. It's sad but true.

Won't turn on


One of the wires in your power cord could be broken. If you have the a/c adapter, see if you can power up with that. If you know someone else with a working Magellan, you could borrow his cord to test your unit.

If not, check the car adapter with a continuity tester. Put one tester probe on one of the side springs of the car plug and the other probe on the outside metal of the GPS plug. If that shows continuity, place one tester probe on the end tip of the car plug and the other inside the the GPS plug.

If either of those do not show continuity, first take apart the auto side of the cord. Check the fuse and the wire to contact solder joints. If they seem okay, carefully cut back the molded plastic from the GPS end and examine the wire to solder joints. If any are broken, replace the cord or resolder the joints.
