Worked in home, took it on car trip, reinstalled in home and the transformer plug would not seat. got replacement transformer still won`t seat properly. if i press and hold the connector i get power, otherwise none and the connector pops out. still connects to the car plug connector.
I had the same thing happen on my original Roady2. I suspect the powerplug port on the Roady2 unit is not getting a good connection. Does the transformer plug have a plastic tip? You can try to cut that off with a sharp razor blade. Sometimes that will make a good tight connection. What I did was buy a used Roady2 unit on ebay. Also another cause is
the power connection is not being made by an internal problem or wear caused by constantly plugging and unplugging the power port. I use a Cambridge XM playdock boombox at home. I bet getting a different unit will solve the problem. The only problem is that finding a used unit might take some work. Good Luck

I downloaded the updated firmware, saved it to my computer. Hooked up the skyfi3 to the usb port and took the power cord from the home dock and plugged it directly in to the unit. Held down the volume up and mode button, then as soon as it got to the "scanning media" screen I hit the up arrow, then the down arrow, then the up arrow again. This got the unit running and I was able to upgrade the firmware. It took two or three times to work, but eventually worked like a charm.
I had the same problem. This procedure from the "Technical Questions" section of http://shopdelphi.com/consumers/support/faqs/myfi/ 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.

This can be a volley of faults. First disconnect the set and using a good multimeter check the continuity from the plug to the mains switch. next check the fuse, if blown check for surge protector short, mains transformer , the dc rectifier, mains capacitor. Check for mains / sub votages. If present then you will need more expertise to check in for failue of active electonics components. If not you are lucky to find the fault within this area. Helpful? Good day
Your power connector has probably broken off the little plastic tip on the end, and it is stuck inside the power connection around the power pin. You will have to use a needle to try to poke and pull the plastic piece out and off of the power pin, then it will work - a common problem and it has happended to me twice already!
You may not be getting power through the base because of a bad physical connection between the base pins and the receiver, and it won't power up because it has no battery charge. Try plugging the AC power adapter directly into the bottom of the receiver (not through the cradle). Push the adapter plug toward the back of the receiver to see if the + sign on the battery on the top right of the screen shows that it is now receiving power and charging. Alternatively, with the receiver in the base, try pulling the top of the reciever toward you to tilt the receiver forward on the pins to see if it starts charging.
yes, some sirius radios work on 5 volts, and some work on 12 volts. Your sportster replay is a 5 volt unit. If you trace that wire back, you will find a cigarette lighter plug with a transformer built into it, with either wires soldered to the terminals, or a female cig plug wired up behind the dash. Whatever sirius unit you plan on hooking up, I strongly reccommend using the transformer that it came with......however if you're willing to take a chance, it's most likely 5 volts.
Perhaps getting a new battery will do it. RadioShack has some online. You could take you chances on eBay also. Also, because you have all the accessories for the S50, you could buy a new unit on eBay that is used.
