Question about Delphi MyFi SA10113 XM Radio Receiver with Home and Car Kit
My "MyFi" is going crazy! The display flickers on & off in the docking unit. Won't hold a charge out of the docking unit, and is making a whining/grinding noise (sort of like a cd-rom drive that is struggling). Any ideas?
I had this happen, and I solved it by connecting it to the car charger for a while, then bringing it in and connecting it DIRECTLY to the AC charger for a full charge. (This assumes the battery is not just kaput.)
Here's what I think happens: The AC charger doesn't have enough current capability to run the unit by itself AND keepp the battery charged (bad design), so, if left continuously ON, the battery will eventually drain. In this state, if you shut it off, the unit senses a low-battery condition and will try to charge, but the charging circuit tries to draw too much from the AC charger and the voltage droops (causing the whine) to the cutoff point (causing it to stop charging, another case of bad design). The car charger has more current capability, so it gets the battery charged enough to use the AC charger again.
