I have the exact same issue on my 08 Ram 1500. It even shows the same channel 184. Of course, it's warranty just expired at 39000 miles. I took it to the dealer anyway, and to quote the service tech "it points to the satellite module". Key word is points. A new module (the receiver) is $313 plus the $79 labor fee. WhenI asked if the new module did not fix the problem, if I would get a refund on the $313, he just kind of looked at me and eventually said no. I am looking for other solutions....
Sounds like a bad battery. Try plugging DC adapter directly into the bottom of the unit and turn it on - does it still act-up? If so, bad radio; if it works with adapter only, then battery and charging issue.
The problem is a bad tuner. Very common problem in XM and Sirius tuners. New models do not have this issue, they are built by DEI and very reliable. You can purchase a rebuilt tuner for around 50 and it will not have the same problem again. Hope this helps, check EBAY for rebuilt tuners.
Its probably time to just replace it. They are not worth repairing. If you contact XM customer service they may offer you one at a discount. They replaced one of mine for $20. I thought that was a fair deal.
I had exactly the same problem with my Roady XT. The power supply gradually failed, with the symptom that the reception kept getting weaker and more spotty. Finally, the Roady would not turn on. The screen flashed as you describe. I happened to have another 5VDC, 2A power supply in the closet from some other electronic gismo from the past (I save the power supplies just in case). the connector on the old power supply was not correct for the Roady XT, but a little surgery put the new plug on the old supply... (verified by a volt meter). When I plugged it in the Roady quickly turned on and showed full signal strength. This had never happened in 2 years of use. Apparently this radio needs more power than the stock power supply can provide. Now it "loads" stations in 2-3 seconds and never fades.
I also had the white screen / blank screen problem on my Inno today. I powered the unit off, removed it from the home cradle, and then popped out the battery for about 15 seconds and put it back in. This fixed the problem.
Don't disconnect it just because the screen freezes. This can happen if the battery is depleted too far, because the load is too great for charging AND running the device simultaneously. Leave it connected for 20 minutes or so, to see if the screen returns to normal appearance. If not, then you will be needing a new battery. Be sure to charge the new one BEFORE it is fully depleted. They are not NiCd batteries, so there is no need to fear ?memory effect". With NiMh and Lithium batteries, those days are gone, thank God!
The refresh rate may cause this problem sometimes... Try this
Right-click anywhere on desktop->Properties->settings tab->advanced button->monitor tab->screen refresh rate drop down list..Chose the refresh rate at which the screen will not flicker(try em' one by one) If it doesn't work please post a comment and await reply before rating...
