Question about Delphi MyFi SA10113 XM Radio Receiver with Home and Car Kit

7 Answers

Accidentally plugged xm reciever into sirius car adapter

I have both xm and sirius and have adapters for either in both my vehicles. I was on travel and my wife decided to take the xm out of my car to use in hers because she wanted to listen to "Oprah" and she used the wrong adapter (sirius 12 Vdc). Obviously the Xm reciever didnt' appreciate this (6 Vdc input) and when I push the power button it starts up to the XM2GO page, flickers a little bit, goes to a blank white screen and then flicks over to "battery charging". When out of the charger it won't turn on at all. I am an electronics technician, so if it's dooable I'd like to fix it (any advice, direction would be appreciated).

    I guess I didn't post the question correctly. I'm well aware that the unit was damaged by plugging a 12 VDC power supply into the 6 VDC input. I was hoping to get a technical answer i.e. remove power protect diode at input (schematic description) and replace with (part number) etc., or if there isn't anyone who can answer how to fix it, maybe there is a way to transfer the radio i.d. to another unit (switch ROMs) etc. ( This is a DELPHI XM2GO SA10113 unit )Thanks

  • moynihanta Jan 19, 2009

    I opened the unit and checked for obvious damage and did not see any. I was hoping for a link to a schematic in order to troubleshoot. Specifically I would like to know if there is an over voltage protection circuit on the DC input to the device. Again, it will only power on (as described in the original post) when in the cradle. The battery will not power the device at all. Thanks

Sorry to say, but this unit is toasted.. I have seen this same problem several times when people will cut the end off of their car adapter to wire it in permanently - only problem being, is the end they cut off holds the voltage reducing board, so they also send 12v into them, frying them and displaying the same exact symptoms.

the XM2GO needs to be sent back to the manufacturer for an exchange if under warranty.

    There is not a readily available schematic for the XM 2 go..However, even if we did have one to look at, the circuitry inside that unit is so small, is ALL discreet surface mount components, and processor controlled - what I meant to say is this is basically an unfixable unit. They are built as disposables - it would cost more in labor and parts than it would just to replace the unit.

Where to start.... well take the case apart and look for the burnt components and replace them.... i would suggest buying a replacement as a good repair is not likely. there is one thing you could try... replace the battery... tho i do suspect it is fried

Robert

Don't really mean to be the bearer of bad news... but twice the voltage isn't good.

So the device got double the recommened voltage, a bit of a overdose. Well, Open it up and inspect the battery and its connectors. see if anything is burned.

It definitely wont be a easy repair, have a look inside.

Outside of warranty I suppose?

    you may not be getting enough power to the base because of a bad components l
    connection between the base and the receiver, and it won't power
    up because it has no battery charge. Try plugging the AC power adapter
    directly into the bottom of the receiver . Push
    the adapter plug toward the back of the receiver to see if the + sign
    on the battery on the top right of the screen shows that it is now
    receiving power and charging. Alternatively, with the receiver in the
    base, try pulling the top of the reciever toward you to tilt the
    receiver forward on the pins to see if it starts charging.

Xm check atenna connection


If you are getting the same "check antenna" message with two different antennas, it is likely that the tuner itself is the problem. You can get just the mini tuner here:

http://www.tss-radio.com/products/xm-mini-tuner-replacement-home-dock


As far as the two plug connection, there are adapters available. Its likely a dual fakra connection, though I don't know for sure. At any rate, this is one adapter available. (I would call to confirm)

On Sirius radios, some programs require a subscription to the "Best of XM" and on some XM radios, you need a subscription to the "Best of Sirius" to get their programs. Call XM/Sirius and ask them, but I think that you have to pay extra for the "B.O.XM".

Go to the XM Radio DOT com website for directions. Basically you just need to mount the antenna on metal, rought the Antenna wire to the Mobile/Vehicle adapter base; plug the cigarrette / power plug in and lug the other end into vehicle adapter base. Go to MENU and pick your blank FM frequency for the radio to tranmit on That's all it takes!

Since Sirius took over, MY XM Roady will not stay on a station.


I called XM Radio and told them my problem. They told me to park my car in the drive way and turn on my XM Roady, an within the next three hours they would send a signal from the sattelite to fix the radio. Withing less than 30 minutes they had fixed it, and it works fine now.

XM and Sirius radios have merged and that is what caused the problem.

STATIC/INTERFERENCE


&R=11812445&C=17577363&K=NBy0rr?h=2mv3s7&r=11812445 Your SIRIUS radio contains an FM transmitter that allows it to operate wirelessly through your car FM radio. We have determined that the output of this transmitter exceeds the limits established by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). As a result, the unit may interfere with the performance of radios operating in areas adjacent to your radio. There are no health or safety concerns associated with this issue.
  • If you listen to your SIRIUS radio wirelessly through your vehicle's FM radio, then please review the solutions listed below and select the one that works best for you. SIRIUS will provide you the best solution at no cost.
  • If you use your SIRIUS radio only when docked in a boombox, or directly connected to your car radio or home stereo using audio cables or a cassette tape adapter, then no interference can occur and no further action is required, provided you have turned off your FM transmitter. To turn off the FM transmitter, first press the MENU button. Use the channel up/down buttons to highlight “FM Transmitter” and push the SELECT button. Use the channel up/down buttons to highlight the "FM On/Off" menu item and then press the SELECT button. Use the up/down buttons to highlight "FM Off" and press the SELECT button. To exit the "FM On/Off" menu, press the MENU button. Use the same procedure to turn off the FM transmitter if you use Solution 1 or Solution 2 below..
Solution 1 - Direct Wired Audio Connection: If your vehicle radio has a “LINE IN” or “AUX IN” jack, you can use a stereo cable to connect directly to your SIRIUS radio. This solution is the easiest to install and provides the best audio performance. Many newer vehicles provide the required audio input jack. It will normally be found on or near the front faceplate of your vehicle’s radio.

fcc_a_1.jpg



Solution 2 - Cassette Tape Adapter
: If your vehicle has a cassette tape player, you can use a cassette adapter that allows you to play your SIRIUS radio through the cassette portion of your vehicle radio. The adapter slips into your vehicle radio as easily as a cassette tape and provides better performance than a wireless connection. fcc_a_2.jpg


Solution 3 - FM Extender Cable Kit: An FM extender cable will provide a special transmitter antenna that allows you to obtain the best audio performance through your vehicle’s FM radio. This solution is easy to self-install, but does require that an easy-to-hide wire be run in your vehicle so the transmitter antenna can be placed in close proximity to your vehicle’s radio antenna. Using this FM Extender Cable Kit, you will continue to use your SIRIUS radio exactly the same way as you do currently. fcc_a_3.jpg



Solution 4 - FM Direct Adapter with Professional Installation: An FM Direct Adapter provides a wired connection between your SIRIUS radio and your vehicle’s radio. You will continue to listen to your SIRIUS radio through the FM tuner of your car radio, but the FM Direct Adapter eliminates the outside static and interference you sometimes experience when using a wireless FM connection. This solution usually requires professional installation. We will provide a certificate redeemable for installation at an installation center in your area.
fcc_a_4.jpg
Please go to www.sirius.com/optimize and select the solution that works best for you. If you have any questions, please call 1-(877) 635-5130. Detailed instructions will be included with your solution.
You will improve the performance of your SIRIUS radio and reduce the potential for interfering with adjacent radios if you properly tune your FM transmitter. Please see the FM Transmitter Set-Up Tips below for more information.
We are sorry for this inconvenience. We are confident these solutions will allow you to continue to enjoy the great music, news, sports and entertainment that only SIRIUS Satellite Radio can offer with no impact on your radio’s performance.
Sincerely,

SIRIUS SATELLITE RADIO


FM Transmitter Set-Up Tips

To tune your FM transmitter turn off your SIRIUS radio and tune through the FM channels on your vehicle’s radio to locate an FM channel (except 87.7/87.9) that is not broadcasting in your area. If you use an FM channel that is being used by a local broadcaster, it will interfere with the performance of your SIRIUS radio. Once you have located an FM channel that is not being used for broadcasting in your area, save it as a preset on your vehicle radio. This will become your SIRIUS preset. If you’re not sure which FM channels are not being used in your home or travel cities, you can go to www.sirius.com/fmchannel and search for an FM channel based on zip code.
Turn on your SIRIUS radio. In the SETTINGS or MENU on your SIRIUS radio, locate the “FM Frequency” adjustments. Set the channel number on your SIRIUS radio to match the SIRIUS preset on your vehicle radio. Refer to your user guide for detailed instructions on how to do this. The FM transmitter in your SIRIUS radio is automatically set to FM channel 88.1. This may not be the best channel in your area.

I haven't found any ways that work. A better option is to use this device http://www.xm-sirius-satellite-radio.com/SIRIUS_FM_Direct_Adapter_p/fmda25.htm to make a direct connection into your radio's antenna plug. This adapter allows your satellite radio to provide clear, static-free sound. It can be difficult to install, however, depending on how hard it is to get to the back of your vehicle's radio.
