Question about Sirius SUBX1 Universal Plug and Play Boom Box Boombox

Open Question

Need help disassembling Sirius SUBX1C Boombox...

The port where my power jack plugs in is 'wonky' and only makes intermittent contact. My suspicion is that the last time it was stored, there was tension on the jack, causing partial separation from the board. I am having difficulty getting the unit apart however. I have the front handle plate off, about 8 screws, plus another near the antenna mount. I am stuck at this point. Any help in this regard would be appreciated, as this unit was used only a few times and am hopefully looking forward to enjoying it some more.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: need to disasseble my subx2 boombox to replace the

After dissassembling my subxr2, I have come to the conclusion that the issue with my antenna not being detected is in the female contact of the antenna's plug, not with the connector in the box (as I expected to find). I have not yet verified this by trying a new antenna. Here is how to dissassemble the box in any case.

Very carefully, with a small very flat screwdriver, remove the front grille of the unit. There are 8 additional screws set in deep holes that need to be removed. Once done, the front panel will pop right off.

The inside of the case is a mess of wires. You do not need to disconnect them if you do not want to.

Pry the grill off the bottom of the box. Remove the 4 screws that hold in the speaker. This will allow you to move the speaker that is in the main body out of the way.

The antenna jack is _not_ a part of the circuit board. If you look into the box, you will see a rectangular cut-out in the edge of the circuit board. There is a wire with a silver connector that is held in place by 2 screws. Remove those screws and you are now holding the antenna jack.

SOURCE: Sirius Stiletto 2 constantly "acquiring signal"

This is an odd fix, but I read it yesterday after having the "Acquiring Signal" issue for a week. I put it in the freezer for 30 minutes, brought it back to my desk and now it works. I don't know why or how, but I am happy.

Convert vinyl to mp3

There are a number of record players with included software that can be plugged into a USB port, but you could also use any HiFi and connect the audio output to the microphone input of a PC -- most likely with a cord with two RCA jacks to a stereo mini phone plug. The free Audacity software can record, filter, normalize and save the output to almost any audio format.

Can i connect an ipod to the sony CDF-F10? If i can, how??

if the boom box has a Aux input socket somewhere the you need a male to male wire (like headphones but has plug on both ends) or go to dollar store and get one that leads to a cassette Sorry I can't remember what they are called but the cassette has a metal strip instead of a ribbon and then plug the wire into i pod and set boombox to tape, good luck
P.s ipod may have different port sizes but headphone jack should be the same

Last year I took my boombox with us hunting but it did not work (only a few times we were able to pick up any music and then only intermittently) we hunt in northwest British Columbia; northwest of Dease...

No batteries wont make a difference.
But the type of area you are in will.
Such hills mountains trees and also if there is a antenna near for cell reception.
If you have cell reception you shouldn't have a problem.
But hills, mountains, and trees pose a problem for signals that are wave lengths.

I lost the power cord to my Sony CFD-S350. How do I go about buying a replacement or equivalent cord?

Your local Radio Shack store sells all types of replacement appliance cord sets. Since you lost your cord and didn't just damage it, ideally bring the radio (or a photo of the power jack on it if unable) to the store so it can be matched. There are several different types - and some look very similar - but won't fit properly.

I hope this helps!

Faulty 3.5mm male to male cable maybe? I had the same problem with a cable I made myself, the wire was too thin and was just twisted together. I made it from 2 extension jacks I bought from a dollar store. I re-made it properly with 3.5mm jacks bought from an electronics store with thicker wires that I soldered on. It worked fine after that.
