Why does my Xmp3h1 portable radio display a "check antenna" message on startup?

I have replaced the antenna and the dock but continue to receive the message. Have done firmware upgrade and restored default settings.

SOURCE: 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?

SOURCE: SL 10 Antenna not detected

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!

SOURCE: radio plays upon startup but withing minutes

No, it's the Sirius Tuner. If it's 2 or so years old, there's a bad ground on the antenna port pc board. If your tuner is roughly 6"x6"x1" it's the one. The new tuners will not have this issue and are considerably better built. (DEI) is the manufacturer of the new unit. If you don't mind rebuilt, you can save 40 or 50 on a repaired tuner. The repaired tuners are very reliable since they upgraded the board with one that's durable. Hope this helps

SOURCE: Receive "Antenna Fail" on receiver

Same problem on my CX-7. I've had antenna replaced one so far. It takes about 30 minutes in the cold (usually on at night on my commute home) to get signal. I agree, during the summer months, everything works fine.

Send it back. I hit 13 months exactly and the rep still wrote it up under the 1yr policy. I still have to put a new one in to replace what in this case was a SC-C1 tuner. A pattern likes this makes me want to sell my stock :(. You can't let customers be driven away by stuff. Most can't, or won't, roll sleeves up to fix. They'll just leave.

Keeps coming up no antenna detected...changed antenna ...same problem


Sounds like it could be the dock itself, but could also be the radio. Do you have other docking stations to test it out in? If it works in one dock but not the other, we know its the dock that needs to be replaced. If it does the same thing in both docks it is probably the antenna connection in the receiver.

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.

Does pioneer have a car cradle for the inno2 that secures it better i have gone through so many of them and now my warranty is up. i operate heavy equipment and it causes my inno to fly out of the cradle,...


I feel your pain. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find any car docks, there all discontinued. (sorry bums!)
But, when I'm riding my motorcycle, I put a rubber band around the radio and dock, holding it in place.
But, in a place that doesn't interfere with any buttons or the display.

My sirius portable radio keeps displaying "no antenna detected" but it's plugged in.


Several possiblities: one: antenna really is bad - borrow a friends Sirius or XM antenna and plug it into the base and see if the message goes away -if it does, replace antenna; if not, then your 'dock' or base could be bad - try removing and reinstalling the radio or try another base. If another base and antenna don't solve it, then the radio is shot and it's time for a new one. Customer service will ususally give you a great deal on a new XM radio IF you agree to keep it for 1 year. Let me know how it goes.

No reception as a portable unit


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.

Pioneer inno radio-doesn't work in car


When its in the car dock, the Inno sends an FM signal to the car radio. It does not receive a signal from the car radio. You must have the external antenna correctly installed outside the vehicle for the Inno to work. The built in antenna is disabled when the device is placed in the car dock. Make sure to test it outside, since garages or car ports will block the signal.

"no antenna" message


it could be the wire that connects from the actual antenna and the radio. Even if it is new it might just be wrong from the factory.

"no antenna" message


It could be the antenna wire is shorted especially if its the lower gauge wire.

Antenna's are fairly inexpensive to replace you could test it by setting a different antenna on the dashboard and see if the previous antenna is bad.
