my 2000 acura rl radio stop working when i tried to plug my charger in the lighter

Went to stick my car charger in the lighter socket and the little spring at the end of the charger fell into the socket, when i went to pull it out, the radio shut off and the dome light won't come on, and the anti theft light started blinking. I checked both radio fuses under the steering wheel and in the hood. Both look fine, the dome light fuse was blown under the hood and i changed it and still does not come on.

Anyone have any other suggestions?

You should ONLY use the charger outlet in the arm rest compartment and NOT the lighter! You blew a fuse....did you look in the motor compartment and check all the fuse boxes there?

I am having this exact same issue. I assumed I blew a fuse but I can not find a burned out fuse. I swapped out the likely ones anyway just to make sure to no avail. Also I noticed the radio comes alive when I push the instant button but shuts down again as soon as the instant shuts down. Anyone experience something similar?
