Hi again and thanks for that information.
OK - I believe there are a couple of different sub-models of the HYPE dash cam, but let me ask a few specific questions:
1) Did the camera comes with TWO cables (1 for computer connection and 1 for the car)?
2) Does the CAR power cable have a "USB" connector on the camera end (and not a "barrel" style connector)?
3) Does the camera have a battery - that has to be charged up?
4) WHERE was the dash cam purchased from?
I ask these questions so that we can determine if the camera has any kind of warranty and can be returned, if you can get a replacement car cable / power adapter, or if it would be better to try and "repair" the cable connection (if barrel type).
I mention this cable repair because I have tested MANY of these units, and I must say that the car power adapter cables and connectors are "not the best quality" and tend to fail rather easily.
If the car cable has the USB type connector, another alternative to make it work more reliably is to get a USB adapter - that plugs into the car's power socket, and a LONG USB cable to that plugs into the camera.
Please let me know what you have there so we can discuss what might be the best alternative to have a working dash cam.
Thanks, ***** *****
