Default Not recognizing car dock????

I picked up an S100 and it was working fine.
I popped it in the dock today and couldn't get the FM modulator to pull up when I pressed the button on the side of the dock.
Also, the unit came back with "Antenna Not Detected" in the display.

I have it pushed all the way in.

Can anyone help?

My only other option is to do an exchange if the dock is faulty.

I have had this happen with the car dock in my company van from time to time. If I unplug the antenna and then replug it, usually it clears up. I've not experienced it in a long while now. But it is possible you do indeed have a bad dock. If unplugging and plugging it doesn't clear it up, I'd certainly exchange it.

This may sound stupid but does your stiletto show that it's charging (does it have the + sign next to the battery?) If not, try pushing the cig lighter in. Are you sure your dock is on? If the two things mentioned here don't work, I would return it.

This was the fix to my problem last week. I couldn't figure it out. "Antenna Not Found". The cig lighter doesn't appear to fit snugly. All of my other cig lighter deals fit fine but this one appears to be a little different.

It sounds like your Car Dock isn't getting power. It could be that your fuse it burnt out for the cig lighter. Try plugging something else into it (not your finger) and test it. You could also try bringing it inside and try powering it with another power cable and see if you still get that message. If you can't get it to power up, return it quick!

hope this helps!
