Dont You Just Hate It When.....

:crybaby::crybaby:

Well, i tried to 'neaten up' my PDA install, by powering from a hidden power source, rather than the ciggie lighter!

Well, all went well, except for the fact, the blade connector i used, did not manage to pierce the shielding of the ground wire... (and was impossible to tell)

So guess what, plug in, switch on, doesnt work...

After a little investigation, turns out I have blown my PDA holder, which will cost £50 to replace :crybaby::crybaby::crybaby:

well, i have sent an email to TomTom, and am in the process of dismaneling it to see if its fused..

Whats most frustrating is, i never had any problems before, i'd re-wire a car happily - its just the IS, im more caucuis, and seem to make mistakes!

well, i've taken it apart (and managed to lose a screw...) and there is a component that could be a fuse.. and it is F1..

But, i dont recognise the type - is like a resistor (in shape), and is silver a either end, with the centre being white..

So any help would be appreciated...

OKay, the attach feature doesnt seem to be working..

that is a fuse

if you still had a multimeter you could have tested it see if it had blown!

some electronics use a polyfuse they blow and then some time later they reset, ready to protect again

well, considering this is back to life, it seems it could be a polyfuse thingy...

Next time i try, im going back to good old ChocBlocks I think!
