Question about Sirius Starmate ST2 Satellite Radio Receiver
Wire that incerts into antenna wire broke off any way to repair radio
The wire is soldered to the board after going through the white insulation inside the connector barrel. After opening the unit, place the solder iron in the hole provided where the barrel is attached to the board. Push the broken piece out using a piece of 18AWG bare solid wire. This is a little tricky... make sure you don't damage other components on the board while pushing the old piece out. Then use the same 18AWG wire for the repair. Push it though from the outside of the barrel. Use the small lower opening to get the solder in place. Leave some space to move it back further when you solder into place. Then cut the wire flush with the outside of the barrel. Warm the solder again, and pushed the wire back in a little so it is recessed in the barrel. Let the solder get hard, and that's it... Works perfect. Should take 5-10 minutes.
