Acquiring signal I have 2 sportsters and am experiencing the same problems.  Aquiring signal.  I live in Chicago and this problem seems to be across the country.  Can someone in the legal community look into a class action lawsuit?  Please advise I am at my wits end.  dan

    Same problem as everyone else....display just reads acquiring signal, and no sound. However, during extended travel, signal is acquired after an hour or so into trip.l

    Don't know what the problem is but radio always says acquiring signal. Nothing has changed since it worked until it gave me this message, except for time. checked wired and connections--all good. My radio works in the home docking unit but not car, so I know radio is ok. Help

My wife replaced the car kit.
The sportster itself was fine, what fixed the problem was replacing the cradle.
Now the second one has taken a dump.

My sportster 5 satellite radio is not getting signal


Is it "Aquiring Signal" or "Antenna Not Detected"? It could be the antenna, the dock, or the radio itself. For whatever reason, the Sportster 5 seems more fragile in the dock connections. TSS Radio has a repair guy who can fix this issue. You can reach him via email at sales@tss-radio.com

The dispaley states "aquiring antenna" but never finds it,can this be fixed?


Yes. However, it depends on what is causing the acquiring signal message. It could be that you just have to replace the dock or antenna. But it could also mean the unit is going bad, in which case it would need to be repaired. www.tss-radio.com has a repair guy, though with that unit being discontinued for as long as it has, he may not have parts. You may have to search around for a replacement on amazon or ebay.

GPS 40 will not finish aquiring signal


make sure the gps have a full view of the sky. leave it in aquiring mode and let it sit there. My Emap took up to 35 mins once to reaquire the sats and get the updated info needed for position info.
if the unit has been off for a long time or moved a long distance from where it was last turned on, it can take a while for it to come back up.

This unit looses reception all of the time even with the antenna headphones placed right next to my cars antenna.

ACQUIRING SIGNAL


I had the problem of "acquiring signal" after years of working. The fix is simple. The connectors on the base unit that plug into the sportster, and the antenna connector on the rear of the base get slightly oxidized. Buy radio shack electronic contact cleaner (in a can) and spray a very small amount on the male connectors (both the antenna plug and the male to female connector that is in the dock itself. Plug the antenna in and out several times and swirl it. Place the unit into the dock and remove it several times. You will likely find the signal problem is solved. You usually dont need a new antenna, but simply a clean set of contacts. Sat signals are very very suseptible to the slightest impacts. Good luck!

SIRIUS Sportster "Acquiring Signal"


Let me save you $30.00. A new antenna will not help, nor will cleaning the contacts. I just did both of those and it did not help. I have mine in the freezer right now cooling it down. Sirius told me that I should not leave it in the car because it gets to hot. They told me to buy another unit....

Acquiring signal only on display


If under warranty get a replacement. If not, you are beat, they are dead when they stop getting signal and you have tried different antenna. It's sad but true.

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?
