Can't get Roady XT to turn on. Previously wouldn't load signal.
Have made several unsuccessful attempts over last two days to get a signal refresh on my Roady XT. It is in my home and has worked well up to now. Today I turned it off and then right back on, but it wouldn't turn on! It briefly lights up, then goes off. Next try brings a black screen (nothing), subsequent try- a brief flash then off, and so on, alternating between brief flash and nothing. Nothing I do will get the radio to stay on! Any thoughts?

Re: Can't get Roady XT to turn on. Previously wouldn't...
There is a bad connection on the voltage input on the radio. look in the hole you will see a copper contact if it wore, you will see a hole in it, you needed to bend it towards the center contact just a little bit. then try it again I worked on mine

First, make sure that you have a very good signal - check channel 1 audio. Then go to the MENU and 'RESET' to factory settings.
Then call SiriusXM and have them send a 'REFRESH' signal - leave it on channel 1 for about 20 minutes, then check and see if you have Channel #4 - if you do, then dial-up Channel 71 - you should have Sinatra - UNLESS, you have a MUSIC-ONLY subscription, which limits your channels to only the specified ones. But, with XM Select or higher, you should have channel 71 again. Let me know how it goes. Good luck.
if you plug and unplug your antenna connection to the receiver a lot it loses the ground(shielded) line connection, if your lucky you can take a safety pin and CAREFULLY bend the radios 4 outer shell antenna contacts inward to make contact with the antenna connector, if its the plug on the antenna,try pushing wire in toward plug connection to the radio...delphi never had much for life on any external products that fit their XM radios but when you need repl parts boy are they waiting for you, and they got them
I had exactly the same problem with my Roady XT. The power supply gradually failed, with the symptom that the reception kept getting weaker and more spotty. Finally, the Roady would not turn on. The screen flashed as you describe. I happened to have another 5VDC, 2A power supply in the closet from some other electronic gismo from the past (I save the power supplies just in case). the connector on the old power supply was not correct for the Roady XT, but a little surgery put the new plug on the old supply... (verified by a volt meter). When I plugged it in the Roady quickly turned on and showed full signal strength. This had never happened in 2 years of use. Apparently this radio needs more power than the stock power supply can provide. Now it "loads" stations in 2-3 seconds and never fades.
We've been having the same problem with our Roady XT unit at the office. Sometimes I think it's possessed because it goes in and out, changes to the mute mode, and sometimes turns itself off. Just got another Roady XT unit today. It played fine, then went into the mute mode. Called XM and they told me to reset unit to factory default. It's fine at the moment.
I need to get my Delphi XM Roady, Roady2, or RoadyXT repaired, where can I take it?
At this time, Delphi does not currently have an authorized repair center. If you are within your one-year warranty period, please contact the Delphi Warranty Center at 1.877.GO.DELPHI (1.877.463.3574). Hope this is helpful
The pins get easily damaged when switching from the car dock to the Belkin boom box. I have to constintly squeeze very ******* the top of the xt in order for it to make contact. Belkin will send you a plastic alignment fixture but it is too late. It still does the same thing.
