BelkBF5X007in XM radio boom box

Unit not working, antannae signal on roady xt shows recieving signal.....pulled roady out of the dock, and replaced it again with no luck. Is there a way to pull the unit apart and check the connection between the plug in dock and the radio itself? Is there a repair shop in the Portland, Oregon area that will service this unit?

    Tried cleaning.....I think it may need to be opened up and looked at. Maybe the dock connector in the boom box is bad. Any way to open it up and get a replacement part? When I wiggle the xm roady it will make a noise from the boom music or signal, more like a humming sound with a click or two.....kind of like a short or something.

    DO not use the Boombox with the Roady XT until you get an aftermarket adapter from Belkin. The Boombox was manufactured with a defect in the connector....and it will ruin your Roady XT. Call Belkin or Delphi for more info.

    Belkin 1*800-2Belkin
    Delphi 1*877*463-3574

    Be very careful or you will soon be shopping for a new Roady XT!!

    Try contacting Delphi as well

    My Belkin has done same thing, want to open it to see if something in the connector is damaged or come loose. Can't find any postings. Disappointed, a $100 unit stopped working after 4 months of use.

Loved the Belkin until it ruined my Roady XT- now a speaker is blown. Love XM but customer service IS THE WORST!!!!! Completely clueless! Any info on new Delphi Premier Soundsystem? Thanks.

    I had the same problem with an Onyx and this boombox. The Onyx doesn't need an adaptor, unlike the Roady. Anyway it stopped playing sound so I have to buy another one or see if I have a home stereo dock.

I think my unit suffered a power surge during a recent storm. Unit will work for about 15-20 seconds and then begins flashing with a no signal message. What can I do?

Do you have other equipment so you can see if its the dock, antenna, or power adapter that could be faulty? If so, I would do some trouble shooting. If it is the unit, you may have to find a replacement.

I continually loose my reception on my xm roady xt, i wiggle it around and then it works again, and so on. do i have a bad base unit and do they wear out over time.

You need to resolder your antenna port on the dock connector. It's a really easy repair, all you need is a fine tip soldering iron. The antenna jack is on the right of the dock connector, it has 1 middle pin and 1 n-shaped pin that leads to 2 pads on the PCB. Your middle pin most likely has a cracked joint.

My Delphi Roady XT receiver will not maintain the signal. Does not work even I replaced the antenna. Works for a about 5 minutes before losing the signal

I had the same problem with my xt two years ago. I had two other roadys' at the time and they both worked with that antenna so I called xm customer service explained what was happening and they sent me a new receiver for $10. They told me that those units aren't worth trying to repair. Maybe you'll have the same luck I did. Give em a shout. Good luck.

Does not work when docked in boombox,not getting

the "reactivate" did not take in it's entirety, try calling sirus/XM again and see if they will "reboot it again, this time try having it the docking station within antenna "range", and both should "reboot", let me know if this fixes the problem, if not I have some friends there I can call, and we'll go from there, god bless and happy 4th......

Overheats and cuts off

check the antenna and see if its grounded out anywhere, like if its chaffed and grouned to the car somewhere. If not try turning on the unit outside of the car or using it in the home dock, if it does the same thing its a problem with your unit or car dock

Great signal, so sound

My XM Boombox is also white and it is a Belkin. The folks at Delphi told me the receiver in the boombox is screwed up which over time also screws up the Delphi receiver. Belkin is sending me a new boombox and Delphi is sending me a new Roady XT.

No FM Frequency option

I had the same problem with all three of my Roady XTs. I posted a video with directions for solving the problem on YouTube:

Basically, you just need to have the antenna unplugged when you power up, and push menu right away, then select. Not sure why, but it worked on all of my Roady XTs. On the oldest one I had to push menu more than once. Good luck!
