ERROR: Antenna Not Detected

Hello,
I am having a problem and narrowed it down to the receiver unit. The header connection on the bottom of the receiver seems to have a loose connection for the antenna. Do you have any tips on getting this to work without replacing the receiver. Is it possible to get a new header connection & solder it in place?

Thanks,
Gary

My PNP2 unit has a few of the prongs missing where the antenna mount connects to the back of the reciever, when its in my car, i usually just pull the reciever out of the craddle just a small amount and it usually gets a connection. When its in my home dock, I use a bent credit card at the top to pry it out just a little to get a connection. Its a pain but seems to get it working.

No singal antenna on delphi sa10175


Could be the antenna, the dock, or the radio itself. If you have another kit or boombox, I would try swapping antennas out and so forth to narrow down which part is causing the issue. www.tss-radio.com has replacement parts.

The small, gold, circular connector on the bottom of the unit. You can purchase a repair on eBay if the antenna connection has loosened itself from the board.

Hi Kathy,

It sounds like its the antenna, although it could be the docking station itself, or even the receiver. The best way to narrow it down is by testing against other equipment (if you happen to have other docking stations and or antennas) If it produces the same result you know its the radio. If you swap antennas and it works, obviously the antenna; and the same goes for the docking station. You can find replacements at tss-radio.com.

It tells me there is no antenna not detected


Antenna not detected could be caused by one of three things: The antenna, the docking station, or the receiver. If you have other equipment to troubleshoot, you can narrow down what is causing your issue and replace it. tss-radio.com is a good source for parts and trouble shooting ;)

No antenna detected


More than likely, it is the antenna. Sad to say, but the Sirius antennas go bad very easily. Make sure there is no undue pressure on the antenna wire itself, as that can aide to premature failure. Bad antennas are the number one reason for the unit to read 'antenna not detected.' I have seen plenty of the antennas go bad and they were not misused one bit. If you contact Sirius, they're usually pretty good at understanding the misfortune of losing your paid service. Sometimes they'll ship you out a new antenna.

Surius Can not find antenna


A couple of possibilities all based on the assumption that the unit actually turns on.

1. Broken or disconnected antenna wire.
2. Broken antenna (The antenna is powered from the unit)
3. Broken unit.

Call Audiovox support. After waiting an hour I was told the unit (pnp2) was faulty and I was to call customer service to arrange a replacement. Mine is on the way to NY.
