Question about Tao XM2go Satellite Radio Receiver

1 Answer

Tao won't start

My XM Tao (I think it's the original one) has been plugged into the wall playing in the kitchen for a few years. It suddenly went off, and will not power up.

I tried plugging it into a different wall socket. What else can I try?

Thanks!

    Same thing happened to me as well. It suddenly turned off during operation and won't turn back on again. Probably a built in design failure so I'm forced to buy a new one. Corporate bastards!

Dear Jim,

My own Tao unit is dying as well. Servicing does not appear to be available. The only solution I have found is to buy the Delphi MyFi unit which appears to use an identical interface (see page 10: http://file.xm411.com/manuals/MyFiUserGuide411.pdf ). What a bummer!

Digitally,

Probably bad battery. XM actually recalled original batteries and supplied new replacements.

Roady 2 signal goes in and out....


We've been having the same problem with our Roady XT unit at the office. Sometimes I think it's possessed because it goes in and out, changes to the mute mode, and sometimes turns itself off. Just got another Roady XT unit today. It played fine, then went into the mute mode. Called XM and they told me to reset unit to factory default. It's fine at the moment.

XM Radio online use problem


Yeah use sirius radio service. Prolly a reason that it isn't running it anymore because Xm and Sirius merged company's. So Sirius is the same as Xm now.

Xm2go stuck at preview channel 1. if other channels are selected it bounces back to channel 1.


I had a what sounds like the same problem. More than likely you need to "reset"(our account with XM Radio. (Your radio have stop communication with xm except for channel 1) You can call XM or go to XM'S website. If you have not setup your account for internet usage you will have to do so before you can manage (reset) your radio. Once you reset your radio it may take up to 1 hour before it works. My radio took about 15 min. Good luck
