Unit is not locking onto signal

My H2E is 1 year and 3 months old. Problem: Unit is not locking up to signal. When first powered up it beeps and displays the Sirius logo. This last for 5-7 seconds and then the screen goes to black for 1-2 seconds. This will cycle indefinatley. When unit is powered down the Kenwood logo is displayed and turns off normally. Is this a microprocessor error?

Re: Unit is not locking onto signal

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

This is a very old radio, and your antenna could be shot too. Try another antenna first.

2-3 years old, acquring signal, not ant-error,

Do you get audio out of the stereo jack? Do you have the proper antenna with TWO leads for TERR and SAT ? It could also be as simple as your antenna alignment not being to the SW, or you could have had a local repeater get shutdown. Also, this radio is several years old (designed in 2001) and could be 'shot' already from heat damage as these get really hot. I would try the radio in the car with a car antenna perched on the roof and see if it works; if it does, then it's your antenna alignment. Good luck my friend and report back please.

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.

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.

Acquiring signal only on display

If under warranty get a replacement. If not, you are beat, they are dead when they stop getting signal and you have tried different antenna. It's sad but true.

Sirius sportster sp-tk1, always displays "acquiring signal"

Sirius does not stand behind their products, There is no out of warranty repair for their radios,  and they do not offer sites for repair. Seems  like this is a definite problem with this model. Their solution is to buy a new radio,(with all the new-docking,boombox etc) accessories. also they charge $75.00 to change to the new radio.I liked my sportster 1 because of the FM modulator. It just had to be centrally located and all the radios in my home picked it up(no docking) the new radios require $50.00 docking stations for each stereo location and radio location, unless you bring a boombox everywhere, and the sound isn't the same.    I feel there should be a class action lawsuit against Sirius for these reasons and I might look into it. What do all you think?

Sirius XTR1 Receiver cycles on dog screen with beep - keyboard locked

Hello, I had the same problem with my xact xtr1 and I was advised by xact that they have no repair process in works and most likely wont. They did say let it run for 10 minutes and once you have a menu switch to factory defaults which proves to be a worthless fix. I would have to pay $39.95 for a new radio...horrible customer service. The bright side is that Sirius will not charge me the $75.00 transfer fee as a good faith gesture. I have decided to switch to another radio and leave the Xact brand out of the equation, if there is no upgrade or modification to the existing equipment why set yourself up for a future failure.

Sorry for the info, but vA1 was a bad unit if you ask me.
