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.

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.

Sirius Stiletto 2 Problem

That's one of several problems my Stiletto 2 has. The only solution I've found is to "reboot" the unit. You'll have to remove the unit from the cradle, pop the back off, and remove the battery for a few seconds. Then put everything back together and power it up. It will take a minute or two, but once it reboots it should be fine.

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.

Lost channels

Try to raise your signal level by adding an amplifier to your antenna or adding height to your antenna. If your signal goes too low for some reason the box erases weaker stations. Sometimes it just relocates them to a different channel number so make sure you use channel up and down first to see if it relocated a weaker channel by itself. Look for channel numbers you don't recognize and when it locks in sometimes it will relocate them back to the original station. Hope this helps, Russmann.

Audio stuck on high

You cannot adjust the volume when the stereo cord is plugged into the back of the dock. Instead, plug the stereo cord into the front headphone jack of the dock. You will be able to adjust the volume then.
