No reception as a portable unit

Works great in cradle but will not receive reception even with headphones or lipstick. Is the internal antenna fried? Can it be fixed? Should I bother?

My experience with the XM2Go is that it never really works well on the portable antenna -- in my case not a complete failure, but that might be because I am in an urban area there are ground transmitters in addition to satellite reception. But any movement disrupts the signal Here's the solution - record some music on myxm (up to 5 hours) while docked, and play that music when not docked to an antenna.

I fitted a Peak dvb-t digital tv usb stick with an ariel included and it doesnt pick up any channels. if i fit an internal tv card will that work instead please?


IN GENERAL these decives don't have decent reception when working in side and with the internal ariel. If you can use an external roof fitted ariel you will get better recpetion. I even had a dedicated portable tv that didn't receive all channels, in France, due to the inferior internal antenna.

My stiletto does not get a signal. It comes in for up to 10 seconds at a time and then nothing, searching. I walked to the top of San Bruno Mountain overlooking San Francisco with no improvement in...


Does it get a solid signal when its in a docking station? Its likely that the internal antenna on the unit is disconnected. Antenna headphones would correct the issue, though they are not very durable at all. I know that our repair guy is able to fix the internal antenna, but I would ensure that is the issue first. Try plugging it into a home dock, car kit, or boombox to see if it works through one of those antennas.

I have a problum with my nuvi 610/660 not recieving satellite signals?


I have repaired literally hundreds of the 6xx series units with reception issues. In most cases, the problem is caused by a defective part on the GPS receiver board, located in the flip-up GPS/Antenna assembly.

In many cases, reception can be restored by connecting an external antenna to the unit. The defective part causes the unit to only look for signals at the external antenna port. In some cases, the part may prevent reception with both the internal or external antenna. In this case, the part must be replaced. Firmware upgrades will NOT fix this problem. It is a hardware problem caused by an electrostatic discharge.

For more information about this problem and how to have it repaired, please see this link:

Delphi SKYFi3 XM Radio Repeater


You begin by setting up your existing (((XM))) antenna the one that came in your home kit (not included in repeater package) in a location that gets good reception of the (((XM))) signal. This may be outside, or on a south facing window sill. This antenna gets plugged into the rear of the Delphi (((XM))) Radio Signal Repeater Transmitter. A power jack is right next to the antenna connection, and should be plugged in and to the wall with the included power supply. There is also a "PWR OUT" selector switch on the rear of the unit which allows you to control the strength of the signal transmitted from the unit.

Once the power and antenna are attached, both blue indicator lights will light up on the face of the unit. The blue antenna indicator will light up only to signify that the antenna is attached correctly. It does not let you know whether your antenna is in a location receiving a good (((XM))) signal or not. You will have to look at the signal strength indicator on your (((XM))) radio receiver do determine best location for the (((XM))) antenna.

Once you have this setup, place the Repeater Antenna close to your existing (((XM))) Radio and plug it into your antenna jack on the (((XM))) radio cradle. This connector is identical to your (((XM))) Home Antenna provided with all Boom boxes and (((XM))) home receivers and kits so compatibility is guaranteed. The Repeater Receiver Antenna does not require any separate power connections. Hope this helps!

Poor reception on atsc portable tv


an external or outside antenna will improve the amount of stations picked up and maybe a amplified antenna will help
but the boxes they sell seem to do better in reception even with only a rabbit ear antenna.
I use a box on my 32in LCD because the internal tuner just does not get all the channels without having to get up and move the antenna and the outside antenna , well I'm not going to go out there to move it all the time , and the amplified antenna I still have to keep getting up to move the antenna
so in all the box( "zenith","digital stream"are good , have yet to test others) works the best in recieving the digital channels without much worry of the antenna

SL100 static and bad FM reception


I have noticed various changes in my invehicle FM reception as well. There should be a external antenna that came with your car kit. This is precisely for these types of issues. It is designed to run along the windshield inside the car closest to the Cars radio antenna. It should plugin to the bottom of the cradle. Then tune it into a clean FM station (one that has no local station on it) and position the cradle and/or ext. antenna till you get the best reception in your vehicle. It could very well be that the antenna has come has loose on your car stereo backplane. You would probably notice decreased reception on regular AM/FM stations as well though.
Your wifi reception/functionality is a completely different animal and has no bearing on the FM transmitter in the car cradle. When your on wifi your not receiving signal from a sat. anymore just simply streaming internet audio like your computer.
Good luck.

Internal Antenna not working anymore


if you do a search at pdaphonehome.com a guy has replaced his antenna and provided step by step instructions for how to do it yourself with pictures. I don't know if frying it can make sure getting a new antenna will fix that but thats something you can try before replacing.
