SL 10 Antenna not detected

MY SL10 has "Antenna Not Detected" through the Dock. I have tried 3 different Antennas and nothing. I have tried the wall adapter for power along with the Cigarette lighter adapter and nothing. I do receive signal when I listen through the portable headphones. Any idea what is wrong?

I've had this same thing happen to mine frequently - all I do to solve the problem is to remove the battery for about 20 seconds and then reconnect and power it back on. Always works fine after that (knocking on wood)! Hope this helps!

    Sorry, that post above was for another problem - not sure how it got onto this one! Apologize for the miscommunication, but you can try it anyway to see if it works for this as well! ;o)

Its a static problem. take it off the dock, put your finger on all the prods of the stilletto and the dock to ground them out and replace it. the most times i had to do this was 2, but has always worked.

How do i speed up my wifi performance


1. Keep your wifi router in proper place:

speed-up-wifi-performance-ekycgghenael2qsj0smxwl1l-1-0.jpg
The position of the router in your home matters a great deal. If you have the router placed in far corners of your home(Just because routers are ugly), chances are, you get spotty (or no) signal on the other end of the house.
The ideal location of a router is as close to the center of your home as possible, in an open area, away from other electronics, with maximized visibility. The more walls, doors, and other obstructions near your router, the higher the chance of something interfering with your signal.
It's also better to keep the router higher. Routers tend to spread signal downward, so if it's resting low or on the floor, you're not maximizing your coverage.

2. Reposition the antennas:

speed-up-wifi-performance-ekycgghenael2qsj0smxwl1l-1-2.jpg Routers come with one of two types of antennas, internal or external. If your router has two external antennas, try positioning them perpendicular to one another - one pointing vertically and the other positioned horizontally.
Reception between the router and your device is maximized when the receiver and transmitter are operating along the same plane, explains Alf Watt, a former Apple Wi-Fi engineer. Some devices have vertical antennas, others have horizontal. Having two antennas positioned perpendicularly ensures that the wireless reception is maximized.
If your router has only one antenna or an internal antenna, it will take some trial and error. Try either positioning the antenna (or the entire router) vertically and horizontally to see if one way works better than the other.

Not receiving signal from wcyb channel 5 on winegard hd7697 antenna


try installing a tv signal amplifier on the line from the antenna just before the tv. Tv stations put out differing amts of power, one could be stronger than the other.

Xm check atenna connection


If you are getting the same "check antenna" message with two different antennas, it is likely that the tuner itself is the problem. You can get just the mini tuner here:

As far as the two plug connection, there are adapters available. Its likely a dual fakra connection, though I don't know for sure. At any rate, this is one adapter available. (I would call to confirm)

Remove the back cover on your radio. The antenna connector is located on the right of the dock connector. Carefully resolder the connections. There are 2 pins (they lead to 3 contacts). Very easy repair, all you need it a fine tip soldering iron and some flux. You can get those for around $15 at wally world.

What is the best way to extend range of DIR 615 please? I have just changed from a Netgear Router which worked fine and gave a lot stronger signal throughout the house.


The only solution I know of is to have the router located clear of thick walls. Also, try to position the antennas different ways.

I use a D-Link Xtreme N Wifi router which is pretty good at penetrating walls and other barriers in my house.

Mine has 3 antennas on it. And, I use D-Link adapters on my laptop and other computers to get maximum compatibility.

Try docking the unit without the battery attached. The unit will recycle and that may solve the problem. You will, however, need to continue to dock the unit without the battery...

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.

While in the truck, make sure the antenna is on the outside of the truck. It has magnet so it is easy to stick to the roof. Do not know what to say about the home antenna, mine is not working right now.
