Question about Home Satellite Radios
The radio button lights are staying on, but the screen flickers. I have installed a new battery in my truck thinking that maybe it could not be getting enough juice! is there anyone out there that could maybe help me out? The radio gets signal and plays as long as the screen is not flickering!!!! Any idea how much juice they accually draw?????
Let me save you $30.00. A new antenna will not help, nor will cleaning the contacts. I just did both of those and it did not help. I have mine in the freezer right now cooling it down. Sirius told me that I should not leave it in the car because it gets to hot. They told me to buy another unit....

1) Do you have a Sirius account?
2) Have you called Sirius and given the serial number of that receiver?
Those are the first two things you have to do to get a Sirius receiver working. (The original owner could have changed his account to use his new receiver, if he has one.) Go to http://www.sirius.com/install - the "activate" part - for details.

I have a 3 year old Sportster 2 replay unit that worked perfect until 1 month ago. I posted my problem on this website a day before you did with this same problem. I googled to no end and even spoke to Sirius who wasn't willing to replace my unit at no charge since it was out of warranty. I found an unusual solution on the internet that worked for me. I place my receiver in the freezer for at least 20 minutes (this was recommended by a guy somewhere on the internet with the same problem). I have actually left it in freezer overnight too. This has solved my problem. It is the craziest thing but I thought I would try it before I resorted to replacing all my accessories and receiver since Sirius was less than cooperative with the issue. Anyway, hope this helps.

do what I did..call Sirius and tell them you want to cancel your subscription because your radio broke.They should send you a new one for no charge...it won't be same model of radio but at least they will replace it.The last thing they want is to lose a subscriber.also make sure you talk to an American operator.they outsource their operator business to some third world country.If you ask them,they will connect you to someone from USA. I hope this helped.I'm actually speaking from experience.theyve already sent me two replacemnt radios for no charge.Good luck
