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...

Navman S50

My Navman S50 has been working fine the other day it decided to show me the safety agreement when switched on then shows half the screen black with navman S50 printed in the black section the other half shows a picture of a pretty womans face looking backwards from a car window. I can get to the main menu and then takes me in a circle back to the safety agreement I've tried resetting by holding the on off switch down for 6 seconds when switching off the device is there any other way to reset my navman S50.

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.

Live feed will not brodcast

From what I've read you might simply call Sirius or go on-line and re-initiate your subscription. Try it, it might work for you.

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.

Songs in playlist do not play

It's a bug.  I hit this as well.  You've gotta update the firmware, and you will stll have to delete all your songs and start from scratch before it will work normal again.
