Solderless breadboard I have a science project that requires a small solderless breadboard Radio Shack part 276-175. I can't seem to locate one. Is there something else that will work just as well. It is for a device to monitor atmospheric haze.

I have moved my Sirius Radio. In relocating the antenna wire I put a very small diameter staple through the antenna wire. I did not move the antenna receiver at all. Now when I have hooked the radio b


If you have pulled the staple back out then that is probably not the problem. You can use a multimeter to check for continuity thru the cable. My guess is that you have something hooked up wrong.

My sirius radio sportster works sometimes and others doesn't


Buy radio shack electronic contact cleaner (in a can) and spray a small amount on the male connector from the antenna wire, and spray a small amount on the male connector in the base of the Sportster that the sportster interfaces with. Place the antenna connector onto the base unit and remove it several times and swirl it while connected. Place the sportster into and remove it from the base several times. This usually will fix the issue. Sat signals are extremely sensitive to the slightest oxidation or dirt or whaterver on that tiny antenna connection point.

I posted on this myself looking for solutions, and then discovered the solution my self. The base pin connectors at the bottom of the receiver apparently become loose, and in order to make a good connection you need to push/pull the top of the receiver forward to achieve a connection. In the car cradel, I do this by jamming something between the receiver and cradel at the top to force and hold it forward). In the home base, I pull it forward at the top, and prop it that way with something heavy behind it. No one ever posted on how to take the unit apart and actually fix the loose connection.

Power Requirement for Delphi Roady 2 XM Radio


Radio shack has a unit that plugs into a 110 socket and will accept the 12V plug that is standard with the radio. I use my unit in the house, car and on my motorcycle. The part number is 22-505 for the Radio Shack part.

FM output


I had the same problem. Only thing that I came up with that was consistant is plugging it into the aux jack on my radio so you don't have to depend on FM frequency. But, my unit crapped out this week and I hope it is under warranty.

Antenna not conecting to radio


I would take it to radio shack. Reason is that you can beat your self up over no signal and sit there and waste time on trying to think I fixed it ALMOST! In fact that is not the solution. Is your antenna catching as it is incerting into the femle connection...slightly snapping in or not? Is it falling out? Either way you may have radio shack test this part for you.

Power up problem


This definitely appears to be a heat issue.

I've spoken with Sanyo Service twice regarding this issue. The first time I was told that the solution was to power the unit off for 1 hour, and that it was something that could be serviced. The second time I called, when I asked what the service procedure was, I was told they don't know what causes the problem. Hmm...

In any case, I managed to get the case open. After removing the faceplate, take out the four screws in the front. Using a small screwdriver / pry tool, pop the case off at the FM out port. BE CAREFUL! The FM transmitter is soldered to the front of the case, so don't move it around too much or you'll lose that nice, strong FM transmitter. Once you locate the connection for the FM transmitter (a small wire), you can open the case such that the two halves lay next to one another.

Once inside, you'll see another metal box that contains what I believe is the main chipset (Agere). More screws here. Once you take the screws out, you can lift off the metal case. Here's where I suspect the problem lies. There is a cheap heatsink pad in here that, I suspect, over the years has degraded to the point where it no longer conducts well. I cleaned the top of the chip with IPA and put some new thermal compound inside. I have not yet removed the pad as I did not have an appropriate thickness piece of something else that I could use to replace it. I then reversed the process to put the case together.

My radio is still funny, but it seems to work better now. Since the weather is now cooler, when I have problems with it, I hold it out the window or in front of the air conditioner and it comes back after a couple of minutes. I also disabled the blue LEDs so that the heating inside the unit is minimized. It conceivable that there's a bad solder somewhere, but I didn't see anything that stood out. If I continue to have issues, I plan to go back in at somepont and remove the pad, replacing it with something else (copper foil? another pad?), but until then, I'm still in business, even if somewhat diminished capability. I've got a lifetime subscription that I'm fighting to avoid a transfer on, at least for a little while...
