Default 8500 X50 Escort Live Cord issue

Just bought a new 8500 X50 (re-skinned S55) and a new EscortLive cord and have an issue. Powering on the 8500 X50 with the Live cord causes the detector to keep powering on and off until I unplug the cord and plug it back in. Doesn't matter if I unplug the cord from the detector end or from the lighter socket......either way solves the power cycling issue. This happens any time I power the detector off and on using the pwr button. If I leave the detector powered on and switch it off with the ignition, then back on with the ignition, no issue.

This is also the only way I can get the detector to connect to EscortLive…, if I pwr the detector off using the pwr button, I can only get it back on and connected by unplugging the detector and then plugging it back in, then I can connect to EscortLive.

No problems powering the detector on / off using the standard power cord.

Is this an issue with the new detector or the new Live cord?

Hey guy....
Few years back Escort had us update just the smart cord....I do not remember the specifics other than one would connect just the cord ( no RD) to Detector Tools and update the software to the cord specific....then connect the RD. IIRC some experienced this rebooting thing when the cord was not updated.....Hope this may help but my memory is shot. I am old and cannot remember what I did yesterday
7 decades of hauling butt...................
