Question about Delphi MyFi SA10113 XM Radio Receiver with Home and Car Kit

1 Answer

Antenna Error Hi, I have the MyFi unit in my car and the last few months have been problematic with my antenna. I will have to jiggle the antenna wire to get it to work off and on all day. Today, it just stopped working. The message on the unit reads antenna and I can hear nothing. If I pop the unit out of the cradle, it will get bars, but put it back in, nothing. This is my second antenna. Any clue?

    Antenna alert. No station will broadcast

    My Delphi MyFi says "antenna" all the time when it is docked in the car or home. Once I take it out of the cradle it starts receiving and working normally. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    You may get reception out of the cradle because of local ground based repeaters - I can get signal too out the cradle, but it is not strong.



    Sounds like a bad connection between the cradle and the antenna plug. Hard to test, since you cannot plug the antenna directly into the receiver.



    Do you have a home cradle, and if so does it get signal in that cradle?



    If no home cradle, take a close look at the plug for the antenna - there are little metal pieces that can be bent to make a tighter connection.



    Otherwise, could be a broken wire between the antenna and plug. Did you install the wire so the trunk closes on it? If no obvious places of wear, it will be hard to find the break. But if you do find the break, there is a nice description on XM411.com of how to repair the wire.

your antenna connection inside the unit is broken on the circuit board,i had one of these and repaired it numerous times by taking the unit apart and resoldering the connection at the board,also their antennas don't last long as far as the antenna plug end is concerned

Make sure that this is NOT a "Sure Connect" version that has a very weak FM transmitter, but the older original model with a bland box. Make sure no earphone is plugged-in, then go to the menu and set the FM frequency and set the FM output level and you should be all set..

How do I take apart the MyFi?


take off battery cover, remove battery, remove 'cardboard' and any screws you can see under the cardboard, Then carefully pry apart. There is one small cable that goes from the antenna jack on the side to the top, and another small cable for the built-in antenna at the very top. Both are VERY VERY fragile.

When I plug my headset antenna into my myfi I only get partial reception. I have to keep moving the plug around to get reception


Not the plug but YOU have to move around to hit the satellite with the antenna. Unless you're outside in a field, the head antenna is very picky.

No reception as a portable unit


My experience with the XM2Go is that it never really works well on the portable antenna -- in my case not a complete failure, but that might be because I am in an urban area there are ground transmitters in addition to satellite reception. But any movement disrupts the signal Here's the solution - record some music on myxm (up to 5 hours) while docked, and play that music when not docked to an antenna.

Xm2go direct entry tuning problem


You have it set on a preset mode now. On the unit or the remote control press the "pre/dir" button a few times until you see the word "DIRECT" at the top left of the screen next to the antenna strength. From "direct" you can then key in the channel numbers directly to go to them.

Delphi xm2go internal antenna


Don't use the wearable antenna - reputed to not work well - was not a good design idea - I don't think any of the other receivers have this feature if that tells you anything. Record music you like on the myXM feature, and play that when you would otherwise want to receive on the antenna. If you are listening to live news, etc, there may be no good solution. (I have read there is an antenna headset, but don't know much about it, but some reports that it works.)

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

Reception


While in the truck, make sure the antenna is on the outside of the truck. It has magnet so it is easy to stick to the roof. Do not know what to say about the home antenna, mine is not working right now.
