    My starmate will power on and then the display dims 50%. The display goes blank for 1/2 second then the SIRIUS {dog logo} satellite radio banner comes on and stays there for 10 seconds. The process repeats and it never tunes into any channel. This only happens inside with the home adapter. If I put in the antenna plug then the banner screen doesn't even show up. This is really annoying since it is a "pre ban" model AND I have a LIFETIME subscription on the unit. Of course where I bought it is going bankrupt and they don't carry the newer (underpowered) Starmate model at all. So much for an extended warranty and quality products. The thing is barely 3 years old!

Three months ago I had the same problem. My wife paid over $300 for the radio, the portable boom-box and subscription less than 2 years ago.
Sirius offered no help or discount on a new radio. Guess they follow the Microsoft doctrine because they suggested I upgrade to a new radio.

Anyhow, feeling frustrated, I took the receiver apart, thinking that a stray voltage on an IC ping maybe causing the problem. It was only a guess. I don't even have a wiring diagram At any rate, once I had it apart, I used a small flathead screw driver and drug it (lightly) across all IC pins, possibly in an effort to drain the voltage. Please do this in a low static area.

When I put everything back together, the receiver worked. It's been working good the up until about 2 weeks ago, when the same problem began again. I just finished the same process and the receiver is working again.

I don't advocate this for anyone who doesn't know how to handle electronics.

I'm just very disappointed in Sirius for not admitting the problem and providing no discount for a newer model. I have a $10 clock radio that's 9 years old. Guess what, I don't have to take it apart every three months to keep it working.

I had the same problem. Mine started with the typical power issues. I took the receiver apart and re-soldered the power input jack. It powered up fine but stayed on the title screen. Just got off the phone with Sirius. I was on hold maybe 2 minutes and was offered a new radio for free with no questions asked.

May not have the features but sure beats something that doesn't work....

My action replay doesn't recognise codes in pokemon pearl


you may need to reset the Action Replay. This will delete all your saved codes though, so it's only recommended if your desperate. First boot up your console holding the A and B buttons, then once the Action Replay says "This product is not licensed or endorsed by nintendo" hold down the START and SELECT buttons. After this the normal screen should show up, but with no codes. THen you sohuld re-enter the codes you want and it should work. Hope this helps!

Action replay not responding at all


how to reset the Action Replay DS OK we have finally done it!! YEAGH!. Here is the trick for those like my son and I that are trying to get the darn thing to reset. All you have to do is Hold down A&B first while the unit is off. Keep holding A&B buttons then be ready to press the Start & Select button just after you turn on the DS. Wait for the White screen to Appear after bootup, then press and hold the Start & Select buttons while still remaining to hold the A&B Buttons, before the words appear. Another words after health and saftey screen a white screen will appear that is when you add the start & select buttons along with the A&B Buttons. The white screen will stay on for 10 seconds. If it does not stay on the white screen foe about 10 Seconds, it did not work. Otherwise ours did not work until we jumpped the gun on the Liscense screen. Hope this helps someone. :)

Action Replay DS has deleted avery single cheat code it came with


Your Action Replay DS hardware may require resetting if you are experiencing any of the following problems:
* Code Manager PC software is reporting that Action Replay DS does not contain enough free space when it actually contains no codes.
* Code Manager PC software is reporting the console`s battery is low when it’s actually fully charged.
* Multicoloured bars are shown on the screen after you confirm the entry of a game ID when trying to manually enter codes. * You can use the Code Manager PC software without any problems until the Action Replay DS is connected via USB set to the update mode on the console, at which point Windows shows a run time error.
If you are experiencing any of these problems, please follow the steps below to reset the Action Replay DS hardware. Please beware that resetting the Action Replay DS hardware will not restore a default codelist, and any codes which are stored on the Action Replay DS will be erased.
  1. With your console powered off insert the Action Replay DS
  2. Hold down buttons A+B
  3. Turn your console on
  4. With A+B still held down, as soon as you see the Action Replay DS license screen press and hold down buttons START+SELECT so that you now have 4 buttons held down
  5. Hold all 4 buttons down for around 10 seconds until the Action Replay DS loads to it`s home screen
  6. If Action Replay DS doesn’t hold on the license screen for around 10 seconds when you do this, you may need to turn off and try again

Action replay crashed


First, turn on your Action Replay, and after the warning screen for the DS Pops up, hold these four buttons: A+B+SELECT+START, the white screen will stay up longer than normal, but just be patient.

When the menu screen pops up, let go of the buttons

Plug your DS (Action Replay) to your computer and you should be ready to input games and codes again.

Action replay says not enough free space


okay the same dang thing happened to me and i do have an answer but make sure you keep this in mind in the future the most likely reason that happened was while the action replay was saving you turned your game off don't do that i did it twice and well it sucks big time but in case you do it again save this to your desktop by copying and pasting on a notepad okay! the fix is simple: Try resetting the hardware by following these steps:
1/ With the console powered off, hold A+B.
2/ Power up the console while still holding A+B.
3/ As soon as the Nintendo screen is displayed, before our screen stating this product is not endorsed by Nintendo, press and hold Start and Select while keeping hold of A+B.
4/ Continue to hold these buttons until the Main Action Replay screen is displayed, then release. Your product is reset, and will accept codes once more.

also afterwards you need to know a game id ill give you my metroid game's click add new game and type in a letter or two randomly and click the next button thingy then type in 

AMHE-187B29B5 and click next after that have your game in the action replay and start the game up as soon as you see your games beginning credits you can switch off the ds and it will then be able to be updated!

also after you fix your ds spread this on forums like this one as answers to people's questions so that other people won't spend forever finding an answer like we did!

I do not have credit. these instructions were from codejunkies.com (creators of AR). then try uploading them on the computor.
