Question about Sirius Satellite Radio Sirius Sportster SP-TK1 Satellite Radio Receiver
Last night all was well with my Sirius Sportster. Today, I have power (the startup screen) but there is nothing else. No "searching for signal" , no tones at turn on or off. My presets are gone. I did not lose power in the car other than shutting off the engine as normal (which was never a problem before). My connections are all tight ,my aux connector is in and the antenna wire appears fine (if it weren't, it would seem the unit would issue a "no signal" message). The blue sirius logo screen looks nice but it sure would be nicer to actually have some music. I'm only two weeks into my subscription. Thanks. Harleydude
I have the same problem.I called their support line (1-800-869-5187) and they had a reset procedure to follow. I tried it and it didn't work for me. They said my unit seemed to be on it's way out and needed a new one.They actually offered several models to me at no charge, just shipping and handling. ron.

I am running into the same exact issue. I have had my Sportster about 14 months now and this is the first problem I've encountered. We had a cold night in the low 20s and the next morning the Sportster started in with these issues. It's been two weeks now and I have the same exact issues (have power, all connections in tact, no "no signal" message, etc.). Sirius recommended a factory reset through the menu option. I was able to do that, but the problem was not corrected. If anyone has any advice here, please let us know..... Thank you. -Peter

I had the same issue. This is what Sirius calls a "Frozen Unit". There is no bypass, unfortunately, and it must be returned.
I had mine for 3 days and it froze on the Sirius Logo screen when booting up. If you bought the unit from Sirius, you must contact their E-Commerce department. If bought from a retailer, take it back to the store.
