G10S will work from USB input but not 9V input.

Recommended Posts

What goes wrong inside a G10S when it will work from a USB source but not the factory 9V supply...   I checked the supply with a volt meter and it seems ok.  Only had the unit a few months...

Since you've already confirmed that the power supply itself works, and the base unit functions with USB power, then pretty much all you're left with is the power supply jack on the base unit... there will be a couple of solder joints behind there somewhere, connecting the jack to the rest of the guts... loose solder joints are certainly not unheard of. Before taking it apart though, I'd try another power supply just for giggles... it's the easiest and least invasive way to confirm the jack itself as the problem.
