Question about Delphi Roady XT XM Radio Receiver
I have Three Roady XT's that A/C adpaters have failed. All have a high-pitched noise and warm to the touch. One adapter has failed causing the radio to power-up and shut down. Are there other Delphi customer experiencing this problem? The only fix is another adapter and a aftermarket/universal adapter may be hard to find.
AC wall adapter was failing for me. Car adapter worked OK. Found a 2A 5V adapter and changed the connector with success. Again hearing occasional beep but in car, no explanation found. Have had several good years of service; should not complain.

I found the problem lies in the XM adapter after replacing with a new one. I went to Radio Shack, purchased an Enercell AC to DC power adapter with the switch on 5V and an "N" 273-188 Adaptaplug. Voila! No irritating buzzing noise. Not cheap, but did the trick!

I just got my radio and home kit today, the hi pitched noise is awful so I looked online and found you. I finally hooked the car adapter into a wall plug adapter and volla- NO NOISE! Whew.
It's a $9 adapter I got for my ipod car adapter....just has a hole to plug in the car adapter and you plug it into the wall.

Just wait until you're over 60; my kids can hear the high pitch, but I can't! You could try another power supply, but it has to have the 2000MA or 2AMPS of power to fire up the unit.

I had the same problem. Worked around it by going through the cassette tape adapter. Seems to have solved the problem.

I am also on my third adaptor and I have yet to listen to the Roady for more than 2 hours total over 6 months. I have tried to find an after market adaptor without success. I can find only a 2500 mA adapter and that won't power it up. Any suggestions?

We should sue Delphi for resolution of this problem. I feel that the adapters are a fire hazzard.
