When the S50 is place overnight in the Home Base Unit or connected to the AC Adapter it will not charge battery completely.
The I have purchased two new batteries and both have not been properly charge by the units mentioned.
The charge provided to the Battery is of short duration 10 or 15 minutes maximum.
I have telephoned Sirius Company and their response was that they don’t have repair service for this unit any longer.

Sirius S50 "No channels available"

I had the exact same problem happen to me yesterday with my S50. My guess is that the software got corrupted somehow. I fixed mine last night be reinstalling S50 software via USB cable to my PC. Note: You need My Sirius Studio application loaded on your PC. Be sure to press Exit button on My Sirius Software Ap after you reinstall S/W. Patiently wait for S50 to 100% complete before disconnecting. Then, manually turn on S50 (while holding in your hand); do NOT put in car/home dock yet. S50 will then update S/W. When this completes, now you can put in dock. I don't exactly recall, but I think the S50 indicated the dock was being updated, then it defaulted to channel 184 indicating to call Sirius to subscribe. Since I already have a subscription in place on my S50, I just pressed channel 2 (The Blend) from my remote, and then my S50 began updating all channels. Success! I'm so happy my S50 is now working again! Good luck to others experiencing same problem; hope this helps! I can only imagine the frustration trying to get help from Sirius folks for this type of problem...

SIRIUS S50 radio car kit won't turn on

It may be that the dock isn't working, I would return it for a new one to the place that you bought it from to make sure that you have a dock that works.

Sirius s50

Sounds like this problem is very new...did it start to do this at first or just lately? I hate to sound ugly on this topic, but OUCH! I am just going to let you guys know to look at the manual in trouble shooting. Try to reset the is a trick while in the car. Open the car with the radio(sirius radio) off, wait 10 secs close the door, turn it on...reset then call sirius and go from there. (RESET)

Probleme s50 usb conect pc

You have to use My Sirius Studio as the interface to your S50 to add/remove MP3 songs. Depending on your Windows version (hopefully 2000 or later) you should be able to connect via USB and Windows will autodetect the device. My Sirius Studio is a poor man's iTunes where you have to add music files before you can drag them to the playlists you created on your S50. You can download the software from the Sirius web site, including the latest update. Keep in mind you have to disconnect the S50 from My Sirius Studio. You can't copy files to it and then unplug the USB cable.

S50 cracked LCD screen!

Bad luck, it seems. I don't think these devices were made with repairs in mind. You may have to buy a new S50. You can get some cheap on eBay or Google for any place with closeouts. If you get a new one, I'd suggest a Speck case for it. But don't pay that price for it. Again, you can Google for Speck case and get some cheap. I got four cases for $10.00.
