Try finding the reset. It's usually a pinhole.

SOURCE: i have a starmate st2

I did allot of research because I did not believe customer support when they told me my radio was done and I needed to buy a new one. I found that if you call 1-888-635-5142 and tell them this happened during a Sirius update and tell them is was not damaged by personal use. They will talk to you about a replacement. They may try and sell you a Sporster 5 but I opted out of that because I would have to buy a home kit. I stressed the need for a Starmate replacement. Threads on line said that they have replaced them at no cost. They are open on Sunday, but the warehouse is not. Good luck and don't buy a new radio just yet.

SOURCE: Getting into a Starmate ST2R

I got in!!!! i first removed all 4 screws. I then used my pen knife (or the like...i.e. a very thin blade) and inserted it on the right side (rounded end). Insert in an upward direction so that the blade ends up under the gray (top side) plastic. I then very slowly worked it toward the bottom of the unit using a slight prying motion. It popped open a little for me - just enough so that i could more easily work the blade in the other direction and pop more open. eventually i was able to get the whole gray part off. Be carefull because as you begin taking it apart, the rubber buttons may fall out - no big deal because they are just in there via pressure anyway. (for me, very little damage was caused by using the blade - barely noticable)

Once the top is separated from the bottom, be careful...the actual circuit board is no longer attached to the black placstic backing, but it will not come apart due to an internal copper wire (it may be the fm transmitter antenna). It is secured to the black plastic via plastic tabs that appear to be folded over on the wire - and if you pull it out, it looks like you may not get the wire back the way it should be.

anyway, for my purposes, i did not need to remove the copper wire.....i positioned the circiut board far enough away from the black plastic in order to get a soldering iron in there to re-attach one of the "legs" of the 12V plug. I just got a drop of solder on the iron and placed in on the leg. I have not tried it out yet, but it seems to have re-attached securely


Hope this helps.

SOURCE: I have the starmate st2 and it does not turn on

What I did, which was a solution I found on FixYa, is to remove the screws from the back of the unit, pop it open, and resolder the 4 connections attached to the power socket.

I have a sirius starmate st2 and it goes on but won't stay on and just turns itself off. Is there any way to repair this?


Your power jack needs to be replaced. You can buy a repair service on eBay. You'll need a new power jack if you'd like to repair it yourself, which you'd need to take from another radio.

I have a Sirius Starmate ST2 that is stuck in the Acquiring Signal mode. It is not an antenna problem. The radio has failed. Does anyone know of the fix for this? I know it can be fixed since I've...


More than likely the antenna connection has jogged loose somehow, and just needs to be soldered. The person who handles all of our repairs at TSS Radio does this often, and I'm sure could tell you specifics. His email is sales@tss-radio.com

The plug where the power cord plugs in seems to have a loose connection. I keep losing power to the unit. any suggestions?


just try to change the ac, maybe it is the one that is defective, or if your suspicion is right open it and solder the loose contact

Problems with the power cord. Loses power.


You have to open it up, break it down carefully to 4 pieces. There are 4 solder points on the female part of power socket. With the radio on the table, have the power socket on your right bottom corner. Apply rosin core solder to the 3 points 0 1
2 3 Use a 15 watt iron from Radio Shack. Solder .032 dia. Carefully put it back together.

Are starmate 2 radios able to be wireless


as long as the used one is not actually a refurbished on.e The original ST2 has a stronger modualtor, so transmits very well. This modulator has since been ruled in violation of FCC regs, but unless there is an FCC cop, you should still be ok.

I have the same problem. It happens even more with a generic universal power cord instead of the Sirius brand one.
