You can take it to Radio Shack...best bet would to use your warrenty and get it repaired that way. Circuit City, provided they have a tech to assist you in this area...some times they are helpful and then some times they are not...

Your board needs to be reflowed. Just pop the front cover off, remove the assembly from the back and heat it up (non-LCD side) until you see the solder melt (it will turn shiny). Let it cool for 5 minutes afterwards. You can use a heat gun (set to 1000 degrees F) that can be purchased at a hardware store.
This has a 50% success rate. The problem may also be caused by an internal fault, like a blown fuse or faulty component.
The unit needs to be replaced. solder pins on the PC board of the unit are broken. Clarion has about 100,000 of these units with the same problem. You can find a replacement online for $50 that's been fixed & the problem should not re-occur. Sorry for the bad news. Hope this helps
you have messed up the LCD display probably from the drop and wouldnt be covered under warranty if you could find another unit not working but a functioning LCD they are easy to switch out hope this helps
When the S50 is place overnight in the Home Base Unit or connected to the AC Adapter it will not charge battery completely.
The I have purchased two new batteries and both have not been properly charge by the units mentioned.
The charge provided to the Battery is of short duration 10 or 15 minutes maximum.
I have telephoned Sirius Company and their response was that they don’t have repair service for this unit any longer.
The sirius unit does not have any channels in the unit. You need to refresh the radio (XM allows you to do it online, I dont know about sirius) and leave it powered on for about an hour for it to update the channel list.
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.
How did the dealership resolve the battery draw issue. Did they rewire the Sirius for you. If so they could have wired the unit wrong. If you have a newer vehicle most of the wires in the dash are a very light gauge and most fuctions are controlled by, what's called a Body Control Module. Some of these wires are not a very good place to draw power from not onlt could it damage your Sirius Radio it could damage the electronics in your car as well. I suggest getting it looked at by a professional. Then go from there.
