My XM radio is not functioning properly please help.
The headphones I got with this unit on side goes on and off in one of the ear buds. Get a good signal but in and out in one ear. I bought a set of sony high performance ear buds but the sound is low even when volume is maxed. Can I send this unit somewhere to be looked at?

It's not receiving enough power from the boombox so the voltage drops too low for the receiver to function properly. Check the cradle connector for bent or pressed pins and the power source of the box for proper functioning: measure the voltage it delivers and the status of its components, especially the filtering capacitors.
You begin by setting up your existing (((XM)))
antenna the one that came in your home kit (not included in repeater package) in a location that gets good
reception of the (((XM))) signal. This may be outside, or on a south facing
window sill. This antenna gets plugged into the rear of the Delphi (((XM)))
Radio Signal Repeater Transmitter. A power jack is right next to the
antenna connection, and should be plugged in and to the wall with the
included power supply. There is also a "PWR OUT" selector switch on the
rear of the unit which allows you to control the strength of the signal
transmitted from the unit.
Once the power and antenna are attached, both
blue indicator lights will light up on the face of the unit. The blue antenna indicator will light up only to signify that
the antenna is attached correctly. It does not let you know whether
your antenna is in a location receiving a good (((XM))) signal or not. You
will have to look at the signal strength indicator on your (((XM))) radio receiver do
determine best location for the (((XM))) antenna.
Once you have this setup, place the Repeater
Antenna close to your existing (((XM))) Radio and plug it into your antenna
jack on the (((XM))) radio cradle. This connector is identical to your
(((XM))) Home Antenna provided with all Boom boxes and (((XM))) home receivers and
kits so compatibility is guaranteed. The Repeater Receiver Antenna does
not require any separate power connections.

I agree with you. It sounds like an internal audio circuit problem, especially if the tape adapter does the same thing. Have you tries headphones on the unit? If they work, then get the sure connect as it plugs into the headphone jack (Aux out jack)
By the way, you as an XM customer for years, usually XM will just give you another unit to keep you as a customer. I've seen it many times. Couldn't hurt to ask!
