Stiletto 100 Lost Left Channel

My year old Stiletto seems to have recently lost the left channel. I do not have a home docking station, but using just the headset or car kit I only get audio on the right channel. Any help or is this year old $150 radio more of a piece of junk then I thought it was?

    I too lost a channel, but I believe it was probably due to having it my tight jeans pocket when sitting. The headphone jack probably bent the internal connector. I called Sirius and they sent me another one since it was still under 1 year extended warranty. Unfortunately, there was no way to transfer my 80 hours of recorded content. :-(

    ear phones lose left channel when fully plugged in. you must pull the wireplug out just a little until you get both channels. not a permanent solution because the plug can jiggle free and you get no sound.

    Sirius is terrible. Don't buy it.

    I to have this same problem. Unfortunately, I am not under warranty. It was quite a shock to find this issue as I rarely use it with headphones. My issue is temporarily fixed by pulling the cord for the headphones back behind the device and taping it. This is defiantly an internal device issue and can only be solved by replacing the device's jack.

    Tried the taping and partial insertion methods, lasted about 1mo. before total failure.How does one get inside to replace micro jack?

    had 2 stilettos and both headphone jacks broke. the first was under warranty but this one is out of warranty and they can't tell me where to go to get it fixed - they just want to sell me another stiletto! i'm very disappointed.

    Stiletto only plays audio out of one channel , if docked or with headphones. If I pull out headphone wire part way i get audio in two channels.

Pressed the wrong button on the remote

There is a button on the remote labeled "tune" when you push this it will display direct tune on the receiver. You can then enter the channel. It should stay in that mode unless you push the band button again. Hope this helps

I lost the owners manual for my Innova - Trifecta Digital AM/FM Clock Radio with Built-In Apple® iPod® Dock Model: VR880SA | SKU: 8955222 and do not know how to reset the preset channels

I have the manual.
1. Press the FUNCTION button to select FM or AM mode
2. Press SKIP to select station.
3> Press and hold the Memory button to enter channel saving mode.
4. Press the Memory button to select desire preset channel #.
5. Press and hold the Memory button again to save into memory. If it has been previously set, the former station is replaced.
6. Repeat step 2 and 5 to store addtl. stations.

Any idea as to how to set the volume during alarm mode, it's too loud!!

Sirius Stiletto II

If you’re having this problem while using the FM transmitter try using a different FM Station. I have the same problem. Mine only does this when I am using the FM transmitter. I recently noticed my volume is adjustable on certain FM Stations, and on other FM stations the volume control is limited. I hope this helps.

Stiletto 100 sound only comes out of 1 channel

The "one earphone only" problem is common to many Mp3 players. It is not fixable, and the entire player must be replaced. Attempting to replace the headphone jack and assicated circuit yourself can cause major damage to your player. I know you don't like this answer, but it is the only honest answer.

SL100 static and bad FM reception

I have noticed various changes in my invehicle FM reception as well. There should be a external antenna that came with your car kit. This is precisely for these types of issues. It is designed to run along the windshield inside the car closest to the Cars radio antenna. It should plugin to the bottom of the cradle. Then tune it into a clean FM station (one that has no local station on it) and position the cradle and/or ext. antenna till you get the best reception in your vehicle. It could very well be that the antenna has come has loose on your car stereo backplane. You would probably notice decreased reception on regular AM/FM stations as well though.
Your wifi reception/functionality is a completely different animal and has no bearing on the FM transmitter in the car cradle. When your on wifi your not receiving signal from a sat. anymore just simply streaming internet audio like your computer.
Good luck.
