Question about Audiovox XMCK10 Satellite Radio Receiver

Radio shut down, now won't turn on

Owned this radio for 6 weeks, with sporadic use. Yesterday the radio shut down for no reason. Subsequent attempts to turn it on had no effect. I am positive the connections are secure, since I tried the connections three times this morning to no avail. When I touch the power button, nothing happens. How can I resolve this?

Thanks.

Hi Is your battery charge low?
I know sometimes if the battery is low the radio can turn off

    select "Restore Connections." However, this gives the error "Timeout waiting for Radio." Manually selecting 
    According to alt/shift/H ("help me!"), battery should be at 80%; I now have it on external power. Handheld has been turned off and back on.

It's just a big microprocessor in there, nothing much to do...
However, if you open it without batteries, you might find that the power button or switch is broken ( if like you said, you used it version sport), check for any bad connection or dirt.
Connect a multimeter (volt) on the electronic board where batteries are connected put back the batteries and measure if you get power on the board. Leave the ground connected and with the + of your multimeter check on condensator if you get some power. Be carefully with the CPU, this kind of device are sensible.
Usually the CPU (microprocessor) control the on and off of the device, so I don't have big hope.
good luck

Sirius Satellite Stiletto 2


My Stiletto got the same problem at around the same time. I have been reading many stiletto owners problems and see many of the same problems erupting at around the same time-mid to late February. I just spoke with a Sirius Representative who said the Stiletto 2 has been discontinued. Seems like a conspiracy to me.

Mine just started this recently.


Sounds like the battery is not charging. My solution was to use a small screwdriver to move the charger pin in the power adapter hole in the under off center. That gave it better contact, it began to charge properly and fixed my issue.

Stiletto 2: Device works, but no radio


I have seen the same problem. If I remove the battery and then reinsert it, the radio re-initializes and works fine. For some reason it appears that the Satellite reception gets disabled. Taking the battery out and in seems to reboot the radio.
