XACT XRT1 Stream Jockey Satillite Radio Reciever

My reciever has been working with out fail for a good year or so. Never had been dropped or mishandled. I had it playing in the boombox and all was great until I tried to change the channel with the remote. I could not change the channel and it turns it self on and off. The signal strength is perfect where I have it, but it doen't keep itself on long enough to try to pick up the signal. Any ideas?

    When I turned the unit off, it had been working fine. When I turned it back on, it would only come up to the logo screen and then cycle through again. It keeps repeating without actually booting up.

SOURCE: boombox does not maintain connection to radio

if the problem can be "fixed" by pushing down the reciever, it must be caused by some sort of loose contacts or wiring. there's a good chance that tightning some screw will solve this problem. if you have basic electronic skills you can open the unit and check for any loose screw or wire.

Xact XTR2 will not turn on


Its likely that the unit itself is bad. Do you have another dock or boombox to plug it in and trouble shoot with? If it doesn't power up in multiple sources it could be dead. Either way, TSS Radio can help:

My sirius reciever in my boat worked fine until this year now it wont work antenna is only two years old and it is a high quality marine antenna could it be the reciever it is hooked to a clarion radio...


Oxidation from humidity could have tarnished a connector somewhere. Make sure all connectors are clean and shiny first. It could be that the receiver is bad. A stereo shop should be able to check that for you easily.

Xact stream jockey 11 sirius boombox xs034


Thanks to all of you for your detailed comments I found an easy way to repair the boom box. Many of you said that if you pushed down on the radio hard it would play so I tried it and I too had the same problem, but since it is impossible to stand all day holding the radio and get anything else done I figured if you can't lower the radio raise the plug! Here is what I did, first unplug the radio so you don't short anything out, then at the front of the plastic plate the radio plugs into gently pry it up with a lock blade knife (as a rule kitchen knives are too flexible) then get a small self tapping screw (the smaller the better) and screw it into the gap made by the knife your radio will now play without holding it

Radio channel coming through on cd zone


Sounds like an internal prob within the reciever, since recievers have radio tuners in em, maybe a prob in the input switching in it. I assume you are running unbalanced rca cables out of the dvd player into the reciever as it probably doesn't have balanced input capability, unbalanced lines are susceptible to R.F.I. ( radio frequency interference ) but I doubt if that's the problem here unless maybe you are running very long cable lengths from the dvd player to the reciever. Try using a different input and see if the problems still there, can use any input other than phonograph really as they are all line level inputs.

CANNOT READ ANTENNA


I had a similar type problem where i have a lifetime subscription and my XACT VISOR XTR3 unit had a faulty power connection that was driving me nuts. i decided to try and swap out the internal receiver component with a new unactivated unit i bought on ebay. (all the types are out there and pretty cheap even for new)

in opening the new one up i found the only difference from unit to unit is the receiver brain inside the unit, and it is relatively easy to swap out the brain into the body of a new unactivated unit. just four small screws and carefully pull the brain out of the long multi-pin connector. i put the old brain into the new carcass, screwed it back together and it works like a champ. just have some patience in figuring out exactly how your particular unit comes apart, and you will need small screwdrivers and either a small allen-key set or torx set - my old unit had the allen-key screws on the outer case and the newer one had torx screws.
