Question about Xact Communication XS034 Boombox

Boombox does not maintain connection to radio

Greetings, I recently purchased a Xact Stream Jockey II radio and its corresponding boombox. When the radio is placed into the boombox, after a few seconds the radio shuts off. We have discovered that this is corrected by pushing down on the receiver and that the boombox appears to lose the connection to it during play time

Here is the fix,Thanks to all of you for your detailed comments I found an easy way to repair the boom box. Many of you said that if you pushed down on the radio hard it would play so I tried it and I too had the same problem, but since it is impossible to stand all day holding the radio and get anything else done I figured if you can't lower the radio raise the plug! Here is what I did, first unplug the radio so you don't short anything out, then at the front of the plastic plate the radio plugs into gently pry it up with a lock blade knife (as a rule kitchen knives are too flexible) then get a small self tapping screw (the smaller the better) and screw it into the gap made by the knife the radio will now play without any problem!

If the problem can be "fixed" by pushing down the reciever, it must be caused by some sort of loose contacts or wiring. there's a good chance that tightning some screw will solve this problem. if you have basic electronic skills you can open the unit and check for any loose screw or wire.

    I don't recommend taking this unit apart due to the fact that it was designed to discourage it

Xact XTR2 will not turn on


Its likely that the unit itself is bad. Do you have another dock or boombox to plug it in and trouble shoot with? If it doesn't power up in multiple sources it could be dead. Either way, TSS Radio can help:

Sirius problem


I have the same problem, when I contact Xact (through e-mail) they said that the unit would have to be replaced. They didn't say that THEY would replace it, but said it had to be replaced.
