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.

Which plug(connection) on bottom of ST5 sirius radio is the antenna plug?? keeps losing the antenna, i have replaced the base with the same error ocuring


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 ;)

The tomtom device prompts me to connect the traffic receiver.How do I do that


This is for the RDS-TMC antenna.

Plug the end fitting on the antenna into the bottom of the Tom Tom. Plug your normal power cable into the antenna.

If it's working, when you turn it on, you should see a new display, narrow, vertical, on the far-right side of the screen.

you should see it now
There is a known hardware bug in the Garmin 600 series relating to the detection of the connection of an external antenna. The GPS is supposed to do this automatically and when it detects an external antenna plugged in it switches out the internal antenna. Unfortunately, this circuitry doesn't work correctly in some versions of the unit and sometimes it get's comfused and thinks there is an external antenna connected when there is not. This causes the behavior you describe because, for all practical purposes, there is no antenna connected.

Garmin can fix this and they've been known to fix it even on units that are out of warranty. There is a fix that can be done by someone with the right equipment and know-how which requires disassembling the unit and bypassing the antenna switch. Not to be attempted by anyone not experienced in micro surface mount PCB re-work.
