Question about Sanyo CRSR-10 SIRIUS Radio Receiver with Home and Car Kit

1 Answer

Display Issues My display is off more than it is on. I am wondering if there is an issue or a solution to this problem? My unit is only 2 years old I love the sirius and all it offers. I have the unlimited plan and am kinda dissapointed it is failing so soon. It is in my call all the time so I am not moving it all the time. Any solution to this is greatly appreciated. I do not want to have to buy another one since my subscription will not transfer over.

Re: Display Issues

It sounds like the unit is malfunctioning. I think I had display problems with my first Sanyo CRSR-10 radio. At that time, it was still under warranty, so I contacted Sanyo and had it replaced.

The new radio lasted a few months, but it eventually died with another problem -- it just loops the startup sequence (Sirius logo + beep) and never loads up to the tuner interface. Unfortunately, Sanyo only honors the warranty period of the original radio and since it had been over a year since I purchased the first radio, they would not replace the second malfunctioning radio.

If you explain your situation to Sirius, I'm sure they will transfer your subscription to a new radio -- it's relatively easy for them to do it. I think they just want to discourage frivolous subscription transfers (and hacking) but if you convince them that your old radio is dead, they should be able to do it.

2012 toyota highlander sirius radio constantly loss of signal

I have similar issue. Signal easily lost whenever there isn't a truly clear path to sky. My old cheapie XM radio add-on was MUCH better. I'm taking this back to my dealer tomorrow for other issues with the "top of the line" DVD/NAV/XM system. Such as it won't read the data on most CD's and display names of tracks (maybe 1 CD will display out of 10); and the way the radio truncates the Sirius/XM titles, etc. to much less than the full available screen (my cheapie add on did a better job). For $2,000+ bucks this is a very disappointing audio/GPS system. Sound is mediocre as well. This must be a huge profit center for Toyota -- cheap components + high price = $$$ for them.

No Display

Sounds to me like the display went bad on you. I'm not too sure your those though.

Sirius Receiver goes silent and displays Acquiring Signal.

I have a 3 year old Sportster 2 replay unit that worked perfect until 1 month ago. I posted my problem on this website a day before you did with this same problem. I googled to no end and even spoke to Sirius who wasn't willing to replace my unit at no charge since it was out of warranty. I found an unusual solution on the internet that worked for me. I place my receiver in the freezer for at least 20 minutes (this was recommended by a guy somewhere on the internet with the same problem). I have actually left it in freezer overnight too. This has solved my problem. It is the craziest thing but I thought I would try it before I resorted to replacing all my accessories and receiver since Sirius was less than cooperative with the issue. Anyway, hope this helps.

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.

Power but no signal

I work for sirius so I know about all of these different issues and the most common one is the connections. It is imperative that the radios be connected to power with the cig lighter adapter. This adapter had circuitry in it that lowers the cars 12 volts to 5 volts which the sirius unit ooerates on. The old units were 12 volt and could hard wired into the vehicles fuse block, but all of the new radios operate on 5 volts. If this is not the issue with either of you then you have defective units. Being that all warranty replacement are with remanufactured units, your chance of getting a problematic unit increases after the initial return of your new unit.

Unit is not locking onto signal

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

Sirius not working after taking to dealership for unrelated problem

How did the dealership resolve the battery draw issue. Did they rewire the Sirius for you. If so they could have wired the unit wrong. If you have a newer vehicle most of the wires in the dash are a very light gauge and most fuctions are controlled by, what's called a Body Control Module. Some of these wires are not a very good place to draw power from not onlt could it damage your Sirius Radio it could damage the electronics in your car as well. I suggest getting it looked at by a professional. Then go from there.

Intermittant display of song title and artist

I believe it's actually a firmware issue with the SIR-KEN1. I havethe same setup and have the same exact problem. I have to cycle thru my "SRC" button and get back to Sirius for it to work. Not a happy camper. I read on the Sirius Backstage forums about the firmware, although I have written Directed Electronics (SIR-KEN1 manufacturer) and never received a response.
