Question about Delphi SKYFi XM Radio Receiver

1 Answer

No signal I have a SKYFi that I use in my car and my boombox docking station in my home. I position the antennae in my home office, going through a major part of my home and I still get great reception. However, I recently purchased a home docking station for my garage but the only way I can get a signal is if I stretch the antennae completely outside of my garage? I've tried different positions/angles in my garage but nothing works. Why does it work in the house, but not in my garage? Is there anything else I can do? Is there an XM radio/antennae that is stronger reception than the SKYFi?

No singal antenna on delphi sa10175


Could be the antenna, the dock, or the radio itself. If you have another kit or boombox, I would try swapping antennas out and so forth to narrow down which part is causing the issue. www.tss-radio.com has replacement parts.

My sirius kt-sr3000 also works fine in car dock, but when inserted into it's plug+play boom box,boom it displays "antenna not detected"


Try swapping the boombox antenna with the car dock to see if you get the same problem. If yo do, you know the boombox is bad. Otherwise, its the antenna and you just need to get a replacement.

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.

My skyfi 3 keeps displaying no signal and antenae is in the clear? Any recommendation. Ive updated firmware.


Your dock connector has a cold solder. Resolder the antenna pins to the board. The antenna pins are the 1 n-shaped pin (connects to 2 pads) with 1 pin in the middle. Resolder your middle pin.

No signal problem on xm home satilite docking staion


You have probably lost a local repeater. Try moving it temporarily to a south-facing window. Here's another one to try: Put in dock and turn off with button on unit. wait 10 seconds, now press "2" "0" "7" "XM" buttons one at a time in that order ON THE FRONT of your SkyFi2 and the radio will go ON by itself! Now, press "Display" 4 times. You will see a screen that says "SAT1", "SAT2" and "TERR". You need a constant checkmark for DEMOD on at least one of the 3 boxes. Please tell me which ones are checkmarked and the average "BER%" number is. The lower the BER% number, the better. If BERis 100%, you are out of luck. Write back and let me know what you read. Press "Display" 5 more times to go back to regular screen. Thanks,
John

The unit has an internal antenna (that is really poor) that is activated when you unplug the external antenna. This is why you get some signal when you unplug the unit.

I assume the problem is the antenna itself.

My suggesion is that you charge up the unit, take it to a place that sells XM equipment AND has a demo unit working. Be sure to take your docking station with you (it has the plug in for an external antenna). Ask the sales rep to please connect your unit to an external antenna to test your unit as you are trying to determine if your antenna is bad. If it works, you need a new antenna (cable may be cut on the inside or antenna may have water/weather damage). If it does not, then there is an electrical issue inside the unit and the unit itelf will need replacement/repair.

Sirius sportster sp-tk1, always displays "acquiring signal"


Sirius does not stand behind their products, There is no out of warranty repair for their radios,  and they do not offer sites for repair. Seems  like this is a definite problem with this model. Their solution is to buy a new radio,(with all the new-docking,boombox etc) accessories. also they charge $75.00 to change to the new radio.I liked my sportster 1 because of the FM modulator. It just had to be centrally located and all the radios in my home picked it up(no docking) the new radios require $50.00 docking stations for each stereo location and radio location, unless you bring a boombox everywhere, and the sound isn't the same.    I feel there should be a class action lawsuit against Sirius for these reasons and I might look into it. What do all you think?
