Question about Audiovox SIR-PNP3 SIRIUS Radio Receiver

6 Answers

No sirius id, no presets, all cleared... activation didn't help

The unit turns on but receives no signal. The antenna indicator shows an "x" in bothe the car and at home. I also checked and saw that the Sirius ID number was a blank. What has happened?

    Well spent an hour on the phone with sirius (2 calls). No help with that solution.

  • John Coleman Oct 31, 2008

    The assistance was a bit light. Call sirius...
    So I did, twice. Lots of time on the phone.
    No help there. I was hoping for a more informed solution since I actually paid money.

  • John Coleman Oct 31, 2008

    I've tried it in both the mobile and in my boom box. Separate antennas, same problem.

    Antenna wouldn't have cleared the Sirius ID but certainly could prevent data coming in.

    It does not report antenna not detected. I've seen that message in the past.

    It does have the "x" in the lower left corner.

  • John Coleman Oct 31, 2008

    0 for 2. I did note other posters who'd had the same problem. Didn't see any posted solutions though.

  • John Coleman Oct 31, 2008

    I did go through the web site activation in addition to the phone activation.

    This was not a new activation. I've been using this radio for a few years.

  • John Coleman Oct 31, 2008

    Well that's the second call sirius suggestion.
    0 for 3

  • John Coleman Oct 31, 2008

    as I previously mentioned, I've tried it with 2 separate antennas.
    When you have the same problem listed from multiple people and you sell a solution,
    one would expect you actually have a solution.
    I've been an electronic engineer for 22 years now and done customer service and field service for quite a bit of it. I would never take somebody's money for the call this number approach.
    I look forward to my refund in lieu of an actual solution.


  • John Coleman Oct 31, 2008

    you guys don't have a legitimate solution.
    I look forward to my refund.

Bummer, appears to be how they go out--several mentions of the same thing on the Sirius forums. Not great news for you, but if it's under warranty should be a quick fix, otherwise, most likely you're looking at a new one.

The Sirius Website and Activation.

There are two ways to activate your Sirius subscription. The first way is to call 1-888-539-SIRIUS(7474). A $15 activation fee applies for subscribing via phone. The second method of activation is by using the Sirius Website (www.sirius.com). I choose this style of activation and was very pleased to have my Sirius radio up and running in about 10-15 minutes. To activate, you tune the receiver to channel 184. This channel is the Sirius preview channel, and with give a signal even if you do not have a subscription. Tuning to channel 184 allows you to check for an antenna signal. In most areas to get signal, you simply point the antenna skyward. You will also need a major credit card and the ID/ESN number from the back of the receiver. The website walks you through the process and the whole thing is very painless. There is a $10 activation fee for subscribing via the website. The payment options are a monthly fee of $12.95 or a yearly subscription of $142.45 (You get one month free with the annual subscription). The website is also allows Sirius subscribers to listen to the music channels while they are online, if they have broadband service. The site is also full of Sirius news, information and upcoming events. Navigating around the website is simple and the pages load pretty fast even with my dialup internet service

    well if you have sirius service , then they should help with this , mine did the same thing .....so i called them and they reset the receiver. i don't know how calling didn't help. i know there customer service is less than desierable but they should still reset this for you, as long as you do have service with them.

    I am very sorry that you have not received the answer that you are looking for. I hope that you will get the help needed for this problem. All of the solutions posted on this problem are all people who are trying to help you. I agree with you on the point of not taking somebody's money on an "call customer service" solution. I am not on this site to make money, I am here to help people with issues that i am familiar with within my expertise, so i don't want to speak for everybody else...but your few dollars that you have paid for a solution are not really a huge bank breaking deal for me I am just on here letting you know that i have had the same issue and what has worked for me and others in the past. I sincerely hope you get the answer you are looking for.

Try resetting the unit by unplugging the unit from the wall, then plugging it in again WHILST holding the power on/standby button in. This should reset the system. If not:

Unless your PC is Bluetooth capable, you'll need to get a Bluetooth device to make it so. This is just one of many such devices to select from. Amazon com Roker Ultra Mini CSR Bluetooth 4 0 Usb Adator for PC and... They vary in size and price. Shop around to find one that best suits your budget. But you want an adaptor/receiver specifically for Bluetooth. (you will need an empty USB port for the adaptor)

Hope this information helps, best of luck!

I have a 1970's Panasonic Flip Clock Radio. (Model RC6530) The radio works just fine, but the flp clock stopped flipping. There is power going to the unit. I can also hear a low hum from the flip...


It looks like your problem might be an easy fix, at least. If the gear train between the motor and clock got stripped, you'd be in a bit more trouble. If the motor just isn't spinning, remove it from the side of the clock housing. There are 2 screws (or nuts) holding it in place. When you get it off, the cover for the motor will also be off. Apply some 3 in 1 oil, or perhaps just a tiny bit of penetrating oil, and give it a spin. From what I've read, it should do just fine. A lot of people use wd40, but I understand that can gum up over time.

This is a "at your own risk" type of repair, but as long as you unplug it before dismantling the radio, I think you'll be fine.

Your radio should have come with a receiver of some sort for the radio signals to set itself. I had this same issue with my clock when the battery in the receiver died ... try replacing this too.

Hope that helps :-)

I didn,t get instructions with plantronics 230 blue tooth. how do you operate it?


First, make sure it is fully charged, then once it is charged, hold the button down until the light flashes fast, and it may stay on after that. Go into your phone, and Bluetooth menu. New device, or whichever your phone says. Have it search for your bluetooth in range, and once it does, the pass code should be 0000. After that click pair, and it should match them up.
Good Luck, hope this helps.
