XM2Go Tao Display Problem

I have the XM2Go Tao and it has been working great. I turned on the other day and the display is not working. I see the backlight go on but the display is blank. I can get sound out of it but I can not see anything. HELP!!! I have the exactly the same problem. I turned off the XM2GO with the remote and noticed the display go blank when it always said XM2GO before shutting off. The backlight works but their is nothing displayed. I tried moving the radio from my indoor mount to my car and still nothing displayed even though I am receiving music.

Here's some disassembly instructions. Open it up and verify the screen's connection. Also look for burnt or broken components. If all looks fine then either the screen is faulty or the board is. You may be able to find parts on ebay.

xm411.com is a great rescource as well as xmfan.com

Good luck!

No sound comes out of radio?


Turn up the volume by pressing the top of the center cluster of buttons. Does it work in the home dock or car dock without headphones?

My tao xm2go unit is transmitting a very weak fm signal to my car radio. I can barely hear the audio.


You likely need to directly connect. In most cases the FM transmitter is too week to broadcast through FM stations, and a direct connection will clear up your issue. It could be as simple as connecting via an Auxiliary cable or Cassette Adapter. If you don't have the ability to use one of those, you can get an Auxiliary Input Adapter. Another solution would be an external FM Transmitter, with a larger range.

Try plugging the power adapter directly into the bottom of the radio without using either base/cradle - wait a minute - then see if you get a battery indication.

My Tao won't turn on and when I put it in the craddle all it does is blink


Probably bad battery. XM actually recalled original batteries and supplied new replacements.

My tao xm2go will not turn on


Dear Glen,

My Tao solution is to buy the Delphi MyFi which appears to have an identical interface. See page 10 here: http://file.xm411.com/manuals/MyFiUserGuide411.pdf . This is expensive but service in not available.

Atenna connection when using Altec Speaker or Car Kit


Dear xm2go,

I could not find any service options for my own Tao XM2go unit. The only option appears to be the Delphi MyFi unit which appears to be identical (see page 10 here: http://file.xm411.com/manuals/MyFiUserGuide411.pdf )

Display of recorded programs does not match the program playing


There is a very small reset button under the back cover. You will need a small paper clip to reach the button. It is located in the upper left hand corner. The button is not under the batt., it is about 2" above the screw on the side. I don't know if this will solve your problem, but it should reset your radio to its default settings. Good Luck!

Tao XM2go shuts off for no reason


You could try taking the batteries out and cleaning the contacts, replacing the batteries and/or using sellotape to hold the batteries in place. They could be loose and disconnect when you move it in a certain way. If not the batteries, you could try further dismantling and cleaning, but you may just end up with a clean ball of sellotape that still has problems...! worth a try. stoodleysnow
