Question about Xact Communication XTR7CK SIRIUS Radio Receiver with Car Kit

1 Answer

Dropped the unit, doesn't fully power on now

I dropped the unit onto the floor (~3 feet) and now when I turn it on I do not get a display or sound out of the unit. The power light does illuminate, so its not 100% dead, I think!

Re: Dropped the unit, doesn't fully power on now

You would first have to open up the unit and look carefully and see what is maybe broken or out of place. Look for loose connections. Check damaged parts.

Doesn't power up

Check the speaker wires for shorts, if okay! the audio output stage is shorted, all affected parts will need to be replaced.

I had the same problem. This procedure from the "Technical Questions" section of worked for me:
"My MyFi won't power up, how do I reset it?
To reset your MyFi, start by turning the receiver off and removing it from its (car, home, audio system) cradle. Then remove the back cover and battery. Using a small paperclip, press the reset button located on the top left corner of the battery compartment. Now plug the AC power adapter into a wall outlet and plug the power port directly into the bottom of the MyFi (battery stays removed). Wait 10 seconds and listen for a beep. After you hear the beep the message "insert battery" will appear. Cycle the MyFi to ensure it powers up and powers down. If the power cycle is normal, then turn off the MyFi, unplug the power adapter, and reinstall the battery. Re-plug the AC power adapter directly into the bottom of the MyFi. Wait 10 seconds and listen for a beep. After the beep you will see the message "battery charging". Leave the MyFi plugged in until it's fully charged. You will see the message "charging complete" displayed. After the MyFi is fully charged, turn it on and reset to the factory defaults. Unplug the MyFi from the AC power adapter and using the battery power leave it on until it fully discharges (approximately 2-5 hours). Plug the MyFi in using the AC power adapter to recharge the unit and resume normal use. If you need help at any point during this process contact us at 1-877-463-3574 for technical support."

I hope it works for you too.

Sportster randomly turns off.

Remove the batteries from the boombox. If there is no batteries in the boombox, and it still does this, then the boombox itself is no longer any good.

Sportster 4 not working...

I had the same issue. This is what Sirius calls a "Frozen Unit". There is no bypass, unfortunately, and it must be returned.


I had mine for 3 days and it froze on the Sirius Logo screen when booting up. If you bought the unit from Sirius, you must contact their E-Commerce department. If bought from a retailer, take it back to the store.


Sorry, mate.

Unit is not locking onto signal

Check your antennae installation. Mine was frayed and I had to buy a replacement for the car.
