Samantha Delle

 
This is the point of connection for the charging port. Check the jack for dirt, lint, and damaged pins. Very carefully, use a toothpick or soft toothbrush to clear the obstruction. If the jack has been cleaned and your power cord is functional, the charge connector may be faulty. You will want to replace the detector.
 
=== Faulty Battery ===
 
By process of elimination, if the power cord and cigarette lighter fuse are functional, but your device is still not responding or won’t hold a charge, your battery may be faulty. You will want to replace the battery.
 
== Detector Issuing False Alerts ==
=== Muted ===
 
If you are not receiving any alerts, the mute button might be pressed. Check in the Cobra SPX 5300 Radar Detector that the middle left button that says “MUTE” is not pressed, otherwise all the alerts will be shut off. If it is pressed, just press it again to activate the alert sounds. If you have tried pressing the mute button to take off the mute function and the device is still not issuing alerts, the button itself may be faulty. You will want to replace it.
