SIRIUS S50 radio car kit won't turn on

My car dock was working and all of a sudden won't power on at all. The S50 itself will turn on if undocked, but the minute i put it ont he dock it won't turn on. I've checked my cigarette lighter thinking it may not be working, but it is. Any ideas??

    My sirius radio was working fine, then it was unplugged from the power supply, and now, when plugged in it will only cycle between the last 3 stations that were used and none of the buttons work--wont turn off by the power button, wont show the menu, wont change stations, etc. What caused this?

    I actually have the same problem but tried buying a new car kit and it didn't work either. I'm kind of stumped and thinking of upgrading but I have over 400 songs on my S50 that I downloaded from the radio :0(

It may be that the dock isn't working, I would return it for a new one to the place that you bought it from to make sure that you have a dock that works.

Sirius S50 "No channels available"


I had the exact same problem happen to me yesterday with my S50. My guess is that the software got corrupted somehow. I fixed mine last night be reinstalling S50 software via USB cable to my PC. Note: You need My Sirius Studio application loaded on your PC. Be sure to press Exit button on My Sirius Software Ap after you reinstall S/W. Patiently wait for S50 to 100% complete before disconnecting. Then, manually turn on S50 (while holding in your hand); do NOT put in car/home dock yet. S50 will then update S/W. When this completes, now you can put in dock. I don't exactly recall, but I think the S50 indicated the dock was being updated, then it defaulted to channel 184 indicating to call Sirius to subscribe. Since I already have a subscription in place on my S50, I just pressed channel 2 (The Blend) from my remote, and then my S50 began updating all channels. Success! I'm so happy my S50 is now working again! Good luck to others experiencing same problem; hope this helps! I can only imagine the frustration trying to get help from Sirius folks for this type of problem...

From what I've read you might simply call Sirius or go on-line and re-initiate your subscription. Try it, it might work for you.

S50 stopped working


Perhaps getting a new battery will do it. RadioShack has some online. You could take you chances on eBay also. Also, because you have all the accessories for the S50, you could buy a new unit on eBay that is used.

S50-TK1 lockup issue


The number for Sirius is (800)869-5364. They are very helpful when I had the same locking up problem. They will walk you through the process to update the item. Worked 100%^!
Had absolutely nothing to do with the battery.
