Question about Sirius Stiletto 2 Portable Satellite Radio Receiver

SL10 - lock up

Since last Monday, my stilleto 10 has had trouble. After listenign to sirius for a few minutes, the radio will lock up and repeat one note before it reboots. I called sirius tech support who gave me a line about satelite upgrades that will take a few days to correct - not sure how much I believe them. It happend after I upgraded the software in the radio via my computer

Is this a radio problem that requires a replacement or is this something affecting the sirius network.

    finally got a new service rep on the phone who tried to reactivate my radio. No luck. They are replacing the unit.

    My stiletto 2 does this on occasion, seems completly random. When it reboots it works fine again except for some reason I keep losing the "love" songs I've recorded from the radio.

    It turns on and after a very short time it locks up.. Sometimes it is silent other times it constantly repeats the same note. the only way to stop it or reset it is to remove the battery..

I had the same problem...... SL10 is overheating the BGA chip there is 2 of them so you need to open your radio and install some heatsink tape but if you listening at home just put a fan on it so it wont overheat .......................

My stilleto lasts about 1 hour, but it's been used for a while now. I would reccomend buying a new Li-Ion batery if you absolutely need long battery life.

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

Stilleto 2 keeps shutting down


It may be a problem with the power switch, I too had this problem. It seems like the power switch is stuck in "down" position as if you were holding it. I remove my battery cover (along with the battery) and gently jiggle the switch up and down to "loosen" whatever may be sticking it in place and it seems to work. I have encountered this problem several times. I did not send it out for repair. It works fine for me (knock on wood).

SL 10 Antenna not detected


I've had this same thing happen to mine frequently - all I do to solve the problem is to remove the battery for about 20 seconds and then reconnect and power it back on. Always works fine after that (knocking on wood)! Hope this helps!

Can i use existing satelite antena on my audi


The antenna should plug into the Stilleto car kit if your Audi is equipped with Sirius already. Otherwise you will have to use another Sirius antenna.

Sirius XTR1 Receiver cycles on dog screen with beep - keyboard locked


Hello, I had the same problem with my xact xtr1 and I was advised by xact that they have no repair process in works and most likely wont. They did say let it run for 10 minutes and once you have a menu switch to factory defaults which proves to be a worthless fix. I would have to pay $39.95 for a new radio...horrible customer service. The bright side is that Sirius will not charge me the $75.00 transfer fee as a good faith gesture. I have decided to switch to another radio and leave the Xact brand out of the equation, if there is no upgrade or modification to the existing equipment why set yourself up for a future failure.
