My xm express radio screen light keeps flashing on and off

Receivers can lose a backlight for a number of reasons. It could be a failing power source, or it could be a loose connection between the dock and the receiver. I would say that more often than not, it is simply the backlight going out. TSS Radio has a repair guy who can fix this issue in most cases. You just need to send an email to Although, with an Xpress, it may not be worth it as you can replace the whole kit and the radio for just $14.99 here:

Pioneer GEX-INNO2BK XM Radio Receivers backight problem

Have you tried changing the backlight controls in the menu? Pull up your menu, go to settings, then preference, and change display. Choose backlight display. You can put it always off, always on, or on for however many seconds.

Delphi XpressRC XM Radio backlight problem

Same thing happened to mine until it permanently went dark - no brightness. Problem is with the LCD display that is defective. As this model does not have a separate filament bulb unlike the non color model, it cannot be repaired. Likely too expensive to replace the color LCD display if avalaible. Next one I buy will be a non color version which has separate bulb.

Had this problem with mine. turned out to be bad solder joints. Take the unit apart and solder these joints and it should fix the display problem.e0ae4d7.jpg

Sportster back light problem

I had the same issue with my Sportster Replay SR2. The backlight was usually out, but would flicker on, especially when I would apply pressure to the back.

The unit only has two screws at the bottom, which I removed. I couldn't seem to remove the back cover and was afraid I might break it, so I snugly put the screws back in and decided to give up until I could find some more information on how to remove the back.

Voila! After putting the unit back into its cradle in my car, the back light worked! I believe that the screws had simply loosened over time, and the connections for the backlight simply were not making contact.

I'm not sure how long this fix will last, but so far so good. So before doing any soldering or monkeying with the connections, just try tightening the screws first to see if it fixes the problem as it did for me.

Sirius Sportster

Unfortunately this is a fairly common problem in the Sportster, caused by worn contacts in the tuner. Sometimes you can temporarily resolve the problem by wedging a thin piece of cardboard behind the tuner in the cradle, to create a better contact; but eventually it will just wear out again.

LCD screen back light doesn't work

Ditto - JVC KT-SR2000 backlight doesn't work (watched die yesterday), after 2 years, 10 months. Sadly JVC no longer represents quality.  
Note: Original JVC KT-SR2000 was a fire hazard - defective from start - overheated hardly describes it. BestBuy replaced first month.
