This sounds like a component heat failure inside the unit on a circuit board. If it isn't in warranty, to figure out if that's what's going on, you can open it up and spray various components, one at a time, with Freon (Cool Spray at the Electronics Stores). When you hit the temperature sensitive part, the unit will work again. Go slow, and you should be able to pinpoint the bad part. Now the difficult part will be getting a replacement part, and if you're warranty's still good, better to let them fix it. I read where they're discontinued, so parts may be hard to get, and you might check Ebay for a replacement. Wish I had better news.

Keeps coming up no antenna detected...changed antenna ...same problem


Sounds like it could be the dock itself, but could also be the radio. Do you have other docking stations to test it out in? If it works in one dock but not the other, we know its the dock that needs to be replaced. If it does the same thing in both docks it is probably the antenna connection in the receiver.

Your audio out pins on the dock, or on the top of the radio are loose. The BGA connections on the chips inside may also be loose, but that is less likely depending on the force of the collision.

Aquiring Signal displays for 5-10 minutes before hearing audio


It's a bad Sirius tuner. You can find them on ebay for 50 or so rebuilt and they are better than new. It's cold solder joints on the antenna input plug. Hope this helps

Stops receiving signals


Make sure that your antenna is in a line of sight such as a window. I know Sirius works in an Easterly direction for line of sight but I think XM works in a Westerly direction for line of sight.

The system has a buffer in it so it can take 5-10 minutes to lose the signal if it does. Keep an eye on the meter.

Sirius sportster sp-tk1, always displays "acquiring signal"


Sirius does not stand behind their products, There is no out of warranty repair for their radios,  and they do not offer sites for repair. Seems  like this is a definite problem with this model. Their solution is to buy a new radio,(with all the new-docking,boombox etc) accessories. also they charge $75.00 to change to the new radio.I liked my sportster 1 because of the FM modulator. It just had to be centrally located and all the radios in my home picked it up(no docking) the new radios require $50.00 docking stations for each stereo location and radio location, unless you bring a boombox everywhere, and the sound isn't the same.    I feel there should be a class action lawsuit against Sirius for these reasons and I might look into it. What do all you think?
