My sportster 5 satellite radio is not getting signal


Is it "Aquiring Signal" or "Antenna Not Detected"? It could be the antenna, the dock, or the radio itself. For whatever reason, the Sportster 5 seems more fragile in the dock connections. TSS Radio has a repair guy who can fix this issue. You can reach him via email at sales@tss-radio.com

Sportster 5 turns on and off randomly every few seconds hooked to a dock.


Sportster units get very hot ! If you use it in the boombox stop ! Take the radio unit out - remove the silver cover from the boombox ( don't overlook the 2 hidden screws under the speaker grills ) take a dremel tool with a cutting wheel - and cut all the shrouding away around the top of the reciever. This will allow the radio to run way cooler ! I also drilled several holes thru the swivel mount to allow better air-flow !

Get a new dock if you think its the dock. If that doesn't fix it, then your dock connector has a broken solder joint from years of wear and tear. It's common, and a very easy repair. Just resolder the connector to the board.

It will not hold the signal as long as it used to.


I would try cleaning both the dock and the receiver pin connectors with alcohol, then drying and try that.

Antenna keeps loosing its satellite connection


ensure the connection into the receiver/dock is not loose. Also check the antenna wire to ensure there are not any places where the wire has become chaffed. Its not uncommon for the antennas to go bad also.

Sirius Sportster 5 won't power up.


Check the fuse in the power to the dock. They blow out all the time.

Broken Sportster 4


I'm afraid those things are throw away items. They cost more to repair than they cost to get a new one.

You can get a new dock and remove the piece off the Sportster yourself.

Sirius sportster and dock


If you bought it within a year, it should be under OEM warranty. If it has been longer than a year, but shorter than two years, and you bought it with Visa, MC, or American Express, you probably qualify for extended warranty protection from your credit card company.

Satellite radio antennas do tend to fail sometimes. In the early days of Sirius/XM they were made a lot better, but now I've had problems with them a lot more frequently. If the antenna is plugged in securely and it still shows the 'antenna' error code, you most likely need to replace your antenna. It is possible that something else along the antenna signal path is causing your problem - Sometimes the antenna connections in the dock or the receiver itself can cause the issue, but most likely it is the antenna.
