Question about Sirius Sportster 4 SP4-TK1 Satellite Radio Receiver with Car Kit
I have my sportster on a boombox base, the base is receiving power and the sportster will come on whenever I hit the power button. But suddenly it has begun to shut down randomly. Once it said "Battery Low" but I assume it's supposed to be drawing power from the base?
This is my second sportster in a year and a half. These things don't seem to be made to last.
I had the same problem When I looked at the settings for display the brightness was set to the highest level in manual mode. I set the unit to automatic the screen dimmed and I have not had any issues since.

Your answer is border line retarded at best. The problem is your sportster overheating not your boom box. Someone said you can dim the lcd on the sportster and that could help. No wonder these PAS radios carry a 30 day warranty. I have the same thing happening. Mine happen like clock work. I put it on and it completely shuts down after 10 minutes. Does not do it with any of the other 3 sportsters on my account.

I too started experiencing drop-out/unit lock-ups after two months. After resetting to factory defaults,per Sirius phone support, without results, only pulling out power adapter would reset the unit. I suspected a design problem with heat. I wrapped the unit with a medical cold pack and got stable operation. Given all the complaints I see on this web site, I suspect Sirius is well aware of the issue, and not addressing it appropriately.

Remove the batteries from the boombox. If there is no batteries in the boombox, and it still does this, then the boombox itself is no longer any good.
