Question about Delphi MyFi SA10113 XM Radio Receiver with Home and Car Kit
Seems like the power to the XM2go is very flaky - can't tell what the source of the problem is;
Symptom - the charging + sign turns on an off. More often off, and the battery runs does and then it shuts off. This is not a loose connection - it goes on and off when it is sitting still when it sitting still on the shelf. But stranger than that - this happens when the reciever is in the home cradle and the car cradle, and when the dc power input from an AC source if plugged directly into the bottom of the receiver, but not when I plug the cigarette lighter power cord input directly into the bottom of the receiver when in the car. (Not a great solution however, because I can't plug in the antenna to the receiver directly, and as we all know, the portable antenna is worthless).
This problem first appeared in the home crade. I thought this might be a problem with the cradle, and was able to instead plug all inputs into the car cradle and use in it my house as well as the car. But then the same problem developed on the car cradle. I got a new XM2Go from a relative who never activated his, and tried replacing all accessories on the old XM2go -- it appears not to be caused by either the battery, the cradles, or the converter inputs.
This has a black battery in it - which is what I think was the newer replacement battery, for what that is worth.
Any ideas what the issue is?
Battery is new ,charging pins is tight and good connection then. Intermittent, inconsistent,problem this caused by circuit board trouble,needs to reworks the solder joint of all the ICs there,by using a hot air. This common problem of this kind of unit..
Hope this may help you;

Get the device checked at the very local repair /service center so they can give u the proper estimate to get it repaired.as per your comments given till now its necessary to check the parts 1 by 1 and for that you will have to buy the parts.but in that repair center they will have all the necessary parts in spare so that they can temprory replace the parts and check where the problem lies exactly.
as its the ON/OFF problem it could be because of several reasons
1)loose connection somewhere in the wires of the device.
3)device internally got a circuit breakage where the charging connector is fitted. so soldering needed compulsory to make it work.
4)cradle problem.so reparing or replacement needed.
5)then it could be the problem of charging pin in the receiver.
6)it could also because of moisture or dust setteled in the device or on its connection.blowing hot air through hair dryer could also help.
and this all the doubtful problems can be checked more properly on site with the device in front so get it checked first to get the perfect estimate as sometimes its just the problem of servicing and cleaning the device and we just go on replacing the parts.

I think that there is no problem with the battery... there is a problem in the charging pin of the receiver... if the charging pin is not in proper condition then it wont charge the receiver properly.... so better contact the manufacturer and replace the receiver if its under the warranty period...
