Question about Sirius Starmate ST2 Satellite Radio Receiver

1 Answer

No power I unplugged my Sirius ST2 to remove it from the car while the car was being serviced. When I plugged it back in, I cannot get any power to the unit. I have checked out the car jack and it is OK. I have tried to plug in the power cord into other car outlets and nothing works. The cord and the unit do not seem to be damaged in any way. Help

    Is there power to the cigarette lighter? Is the dock damaged in anyway?

You blew a fuse in the car plug. Unscrew the top of the car charger and you will find a fuse inside. You can get replacement fuses at a hardware store or Radioshack.

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.

My ST2 just died. Still picks up all the channels fine but just doesn't output any sound through the 1/8'' minijack. I've only been using it for 5 yrs on my home system, no car, no boom box dock etc. ...


This could be because of an amp, or it could just be a bad solder joint. Unfortunately, it's impossible to find an amp to replace it because sirius does not release a schematic. So, most likely it's irreparable.

If you would like to see if it's a bad solder, just leave it near a heater and plug it in. If it works, that should tell you that you should reflow your radio. Reflowing is easy, just remove the circuit board from the plastics and heat it up to 800-1000 degrees F with a heat gun. Let it cool and reassemble.

I have the starmate st2 and it does not turn on anymore. I changed the fuse in the power cord. still will not power up. I am considering dropping my service. Help!!


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.

BAD SATELLITE ANTENNA CONNECTOR-ST2


Any store that carries Sirius radios should have replacement antennas available. If the connector in the radio is bad, you should get a replacement radio. Sirius customer service is good about replacing them for free in most cases.
