When a machine or some kind of electronic equipment suddenly stops working, you can say that it conks out.
- My car conked out on the way to work this morning.
- After using it for 20 years, my old electric razor conked out.
- My video camera conked out in the middle of a recording session.
How about you? Do you have anything that has conked out recently?
