Re: sirius s50 problems

Sirius S50 sucks...and Sirius customer service sucks! I bought this radio less then a year and a half ago to never hear music now! I've spent hours on the phone with would work somewhat for a day then nothing! They finally...after another hour and some change on the phone again this evening decide they will send me a new radio with a complimentary installation card. Great I thought...until I see the radio they are sending to replace what I have. Like they are doing me a favor...they are getting rid of their own trash, reconditioned out dated radio! Wonderful service...damn I can get any more sarcastic then I am at the moment! Let me tell you my plan...because I was going to cancel my service right then and there! I'm using that damn card towards installing the new radio the **** way but to also 'un hard wire' the S50 so my ****'s back in place...then I'll come home, take the half *** **** out, put it back in the box...ship the **** back and cancel my damn service. If they cared about this client...they sure didn't show it! If I treated all the customers I service daily this way...hell I'd be out of a job!

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...

I've had my stiletto for several years and not had a problem. The screen is now blank and won't work in any of my docking stations.

I am having the same problem. Sirius must've sent out a bug cause many stiletto users are coming forth. Mine stopped working about 1 month ago as of today March 26. Sirius Representative told me today that they are being discontinued.

Sirus S50 stuck on dog logo, no other response to on button

I am most certain that you have to return the radio most likely you do have a faulty radio and you have only one or two choices here. Return or take it to a tech...I would use the warrenty and send it back...sounds very faulty...this is common with these radios.

SIRIUS S50 radio car kit won't turn on

It may be that the dock isn't working, I would return it for a new one to the place that you bought it from to make sure that you have a dock that works.

Setting preset stations

Hi Gil, not sure what you mean by RE-setting presets but I assume your using a dock of some kind, and in that case you simply tune to the station you desire then hold down the preset number you'd like to set it to. It will overwrite the previous setting. hope that helps.

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.

S50-TK1 lockup issue

The number for Sirius is (800)869-5364. They are very helpful when I had the same locking up problem. They will walk you through the process to update the item. Worked 100%^!
Had absolutely nothing to do with the battery.
