Re: Sirius radio repair

I have a streamer model siirus radio and I went to move it to another location and the power outlet either fell out or went inside the radio. Is it an easy fix that I can do myself or where is the nearest repair service? Thanks

Says updating channels 0% complete. Has been doing this for a number of days. Contacted Sirius and they say they can't help me.

Antenna jack is busted, or you have no signal (also due to a bad antenna jack). Without a signal, it will just stay at that screen, since it's trying to download the update. You can purchase repair services for your model on eBay.

I have a sirius starmate st2 and it goes on but won't stay on and just turns itself off. Is there any way to repair this?

Your power jack needs to be replaced. You can buy a repair service on eBay. You'll need a new power jack if you'd like to repair it yourself, which you'd need to take from another radio.

Radio shows antenna not deteted or acquiring signal but does not work . antenna and all connections are good, ??

The problem is likely the actual connection inside the Starmate. It sounds like you have tried alternate antennas, which can only mean the unit itself has an issue. What has likely happened is the antenna jack inside the radio has come loose and is no longer making a connection, in which case it could be repairable. Otherwise there are plenty of other 12v Sirius receivers compatible with the same connections if you are looking to replace the head unit.

I have a Sirius Starmate ST2 that is stuck in the Acquiring Signal mode. It is not an antenna problem. The radio has failed. Does anyone know of the fix for this? I know it can be fixed since I've...

More than likely the antenna connection has jogged loose somehow, and just needs to be soldered. The person who handles all of our repairs at TSS Radio does this often, and I'm sure could tell you specifics. His email is

Check your antenna wire to see if it is spliced or cut. If you do not recognize a problem still you can usually get very good help from calling Sirius. They have been good about trouble-shooting and repairs.

Bad news my friend. That model isn't supported anymore. Sirius is pretty good about replacing the radio for free and discounting the accessories. You will get one for free. The docks are reasonably priced. The boombox you might be able to get a discount for. The new docks are more designed for multiple units should this happen in the future to you again (like Stratus radios).

There isn't much to service on the radios. If the board is dead it isn't worth fixing. It's cheaper for Sirius to replace it.
