Delphi Roady XT won't turn on

This is second receiver - just quits turning on. Do they only have a years life span? If you keep pushing on button sometimes it will connect. We just haven't turned it off since then. Any ideas?

    This just happened to our Roady XT, too -- started happening about 10 days ago, but we managed to get it to stay on. Unfortunately our son turned it off, and now it simply won't turn on. It flashes for about half a second and that's it. Very frustrating.

    We found the problem was not with the Roady, but with the base unit it sits in. We replaced that and both units work fine. So if you have another base unit you might try that.

    Try replacing the base the Roady sits into - we replace and have not had a problem since then

    My unit wont turn on either. When you unplug it and then plug it back in, after a few seconds it displays "XM Satellite Radio" but it does not light up and it does not show any stations or play any music. That is all it will do. Do you suppose that is also a problem with the base?

I've had one going on 7 years and use it in my car, at home and have a mobile jack with headphones. Been very reliable until a couple months ago. Mine kept saying "antennae" across the LED screen. I've taken it apart and checked all the solder joints but unless you're a electronics expert, it's virtually impossible troubleshooting. I picked up a used Roady XT for $18 on E-bay.....Works as good as ever now....

I had the same issue - Roady XT not wanting to turning on only after repeated attempts it would stay on - I changed the AC power supply and the issue went away

Same here, it's nice to know I'm not the only one with this issue at least; but as to a way of solving this, I've found nothing.

My Delphi Roady XT will not maintain signal


if you plug and unplug your antenna connection to the receiver a lot it loses the ground(shielded) line connection, if your lucky you can take a safety pin and CAREFULLY bend the radios 4 outer shell antenna contacts inward to make contact with the antenna connector, if its the plug on the antenna,try pushing wire in toward plug connection to the radio...delphi never had much for life on any external products that fit their XM radios but when you need repl parts boy are they waiting for you, and they got them

When I press the power button the screen flashes once & then goes blank again. Some times I see a quick flash of "XM-Radio" This started happening overnight one night-nochanges on our part.


I had exactly the same problem with my Roady XT. The power supply gradually failed, with the symptom that the reception kept getting weaker and more spotty. Finally, the Roady would not turn on. The screen flashed as you describe. I happened to have another 5VDC, 2A power supply in the closet from some other electronic gismo from the past (I save the power supplies just in case). the connector on the old power supply was not correct for the Roady XT, but a little surgery put the new plug on the old supply... (verified by a volt meter). When I plugged it in the Roady quickly turned on and showed full signal strength. This had never happened in 2 years of use. Apparently this radio needs more power than the stock power supply can provide. Now it "loads" stations in 2-3 seconds and never fades.

Roady 2 signal goes in and out....


We've been having the same problem with our Roady XT unit at the office. Sometimes I think it's possessed because it goes in and out, changes to the mute mode, and sometimes turns itself off. Just got another Roady XT unit today. It played fine, then went into the mute mode. Called XM and they told me to reset unit to factory default. It's fine at the moment.

Roady xt


i figured it out with help from a delphi service rep.! you need to go into the menu and reset to factory default.this will erase everything you have changed from the factory settings,but once done you can reprogram your settings and they will stay. step 1-enter menu step 2-reset factory default settings step 3-reprogram your preset stations,FM freq. colors etc. step 4-use power button on the roady to turn it off.once the roady shuts down turn it back on with the power button. step 4-now you should be able to turn the key off without erasing your presets.

Chances are it's not picking up the XM signal. First, contact XM to resend your setup. if that doesn't work check your antenna connections.
