Default Problems with antennas

Hey guys, i seem to have the same problems you all have, but the main one is that I'm always searching for a signal because the connection between the dock and the antenna is weak.

I have to sometimes hold the dock and keep constant pressure on the antenna plug to have a signal. I purchased a second slim antenna for my car because i thought it was some other issue but both do the same thing.

Is there a way to make the connector 'cling' to the dock better? Bend something, do something, whatever?????? This is just too frustrating, after solving all the hardware issues i have this 'easy' one to deal with.

Thank you

I too have noticed a degradation in docking connection over time. Left signal, right signal, antenna connection and power are all intermittant. Somewhere in an old thread someone mentioned bending the clip inside the S50 where the plastic post goes in to the connector will tighten the connection. Maybe DAB or Me_Rubin can tell us where the link is or how to do it. This also may be the reason the battery charges intermittantly.
