If you can put your hands on another unit for parts, you can open it and replace your damaged pin with one from the unit for parts. It takes a little time and care but you can do it.

How to debug a stiletto 1

Stiletto 2 broke off !

The pin on the Stiletto 2 connector was indented a little last week. This week it broke off and the radio will not work. I am thinking the dock connector would have to be replaced.

Anyone know who can repair this?
Is this a common problem for the Stiletto 2 ?
Thank you !

I continually loose my reception on my xm roady xt, i wiggle it around and then it works again, and so on. do i have a bad base unit and do they wear out over time.

You need to resolder your antenna port on the dock connector. It's a really easy repair, all you need is a fine tip soldering iron. The antenna jack is on the right of the dock connector, it has 1 middle pin and 1 n-shaped pin that leads to 2 pads on the PCB. Your middle pin most likely has a cracked joint.

My skyfi 3 keeps displaying no signal and antenae is in the clear? Any recommendation. Ive updated firmware.

Your dock connector has a cold solder. Resolder the antenna pins to the board. The antenna pins are the 1 n-shaped pin (connects to 2 pads) with 1 pin in the middle. Resolder your middle pin.

My receiver continues to show no signal even after a refresh by xmradio. I had left it on for 24 hrs with the receiver turned off

Your antenna pin solder joint on your dock connector is bad. I've seen this problem a lot (I buy returned sirius radios, fix them, and resell them). The antenna connector is on the right of the dock connector. It has 1 n-shaped pin (connected to 2 pads on the PCB), and 1 middle pin. The middle pin's solder joint has cracked, and needs to be resoldered. You can use any soldering iron to do it, just use flux and be careful not to bridge the pins.

Have a sr-h550 home tuner, the antenna jack in back of unit broke where can i get it fixed

in the picture is the antenna jack the one attached to the rolled up cable?
does it look like this

if so radioshack or something similar sells that jack or a car audio shop

you could just strip the wires and wrap them round the terminals

or find someone that you know that knows how to use a soldering iron and solder it back together
or you can get an soldering iron and do it yourself they are not that expensive now and im sure the people in the shops will tell you how to use it
if not then look on google on how to use a soldering iron there will be millions of pages explaining how

Roady XT "Antenna" problem

one of 3 things, either your antenna is not insight of a skies view to receive the signal, or its wire is broken at the antenna, but if you remove the antenna connection frequently it pulls the center wire out of the connection on the end that fits into the radio when its plugged in push on the conductor at the back of the plug and see if this helps,alos if connection is loose take a safety pin and carefully between the outer plug case ans the ground fingers around the center pin push these in so you get a better ground, and lastly try another substitute antenna, I have re-soldered my connections numerous times to fix this issue, delphi doesn't make a very rugged product, good luck

Broken antenna jack on a Sirius Stratus 5

Are you missing the center pin, by chance (which often snaps if the plug isn't lined up correctly or if you wiggle the lead to connect or disconnect)?
I fixed mine by inserting a 1.5CM piece of very thin but stiff copper wire into the dimple. You may have to 'coax' it a bit with needle nose pliers.

Check your copper pin cylinder on the back of the receiver that goes into the cradle. The metal cylinder surrounding the copper pin can shave off or crack, causing these problems. If you can put your hands on another unit, you can replace this area with the parts unit. Unscrew the two screws holding the unit together and then slowly pry the unit apart, inserting a very thin blade and moving it slowly around the frame. Once inside, you will see screws holding down the area with the copper pins. You can remove this and put it in your receiver.

Antenna connection

Check to see if the center pin in the antenna jack on the radio is bent or missing. I have a Roady II and that is the problem with mine. You may need a magnifing glass to see it.
