Audiovox SIRPNP2 SIRIUS Radio Receiver

My receiver just started to cut out on me. I get an audio pop and then loose my audio. If I jar the unit it will come back and sometimes will continue to play for hours. It's when I first turn in on that I experience the problem and remains intermittent until it finally makes a connection. I think It's a break in the wiring or on the pcb. I want to give it a visual inspection on the inside but can't figure out how to open the unit. Can you help.

    I have a similar problem in that the unit cuts out. This will happen regardless if it's in boom box, auto docking or home docking suggesting it's a problem in the receiver transmitter. If I apply pressure to the face it will come back sometimes for awhile and sometimes it will cut out immediately after I release it. I'm attempting to find out if it's better to send for repair or buy a new one. Does anybody know if this model is available?

Check your copper pin cylinder on the back of the receiver that goes into the cradle. The metal cylinder surrounding the copper pin can shave off or crack, causing these problems. If you can put your hands on another unit, you can replace this area with the parts unit. Unscrew the two screws holding the unit together and then slowly pry the unit apart, inserting a very thin blade and moving it slowly around the frame. Once inside, you will see screws holding down the area with the copper pins. You can remove this and put it in your receiver.

I have an Audiovox XM receiver that has no audio output. I tried another cradle and still no audio output. This is the second unit that has done this.

A IC has become unsoldered because of heating/cooling cycles. Basically, you can reflow (resolder using hot air or infrared) the board or you can buy a new radio.

My sirius portable radio keeps displaying "no antenna detected" but it's plugged in.

Several possiblities: one: antenna really is bad - borrow a friends Sirius or XM antenna and plug it into the base and see if the message goes away -if it does, replace antenna; if not, then your 'dock' or base could be bad - try removing and reinstalling the radio or try another base. If another base and antenna don't solve it, then the radio is shot and it's time for a new one. Customer service will ususally give you a great deal on a new XM radio IF you agree to keep it for 1 year. Let me know how it goes.

I inherited a disfunctional SIRPNP2. The signal strength meter in the lower left corner always displays an "x". Anyone have an idea? Thanks

A couple of things to try. First, try pulling out the anntenna from the back just slightly. My SIRPNP2 gets a better connection that way. Also, check to make sure that your annenna isn't bad. If you have a friend that has Sirius, connect their anntenna to your unit. If it works, replace your anntenna.

Sirpnp2 reciever gets hot and loses signal.

I had the exact same problem with Sirius radios. I bought two Kenwood DTS-7000S receivers and both were sent back for warranty. Of the two, they only fixed one but by the time I figured out the other was bad, it was out of warranty. Kenwood, along with the repair community state they do fix such units, they toss them out. The thing that gets hot hot hot is the part that receives the Sirius antenna inside your unit. If you're like me and have nothing to lose then I recommend doing some cutting with a dremel and adding a small computer fan. It just takes a light breeze to keep that part cool enough (but it does take some sort of breeze, convection is out). For a home unit, find an old A/C power supply and match it to an old computer fan of equal or less voltage. For car, find a fan that uses 12 volts or less. It's an easy fix, really!

Pin in back of receiver broke off

If you can put your hands on another unit for parts, you can open it and replace your damaged pin with one from the unit for parts. It takes a little time and care but you can do it.

Antenna not detected

Call Audiovox support. After waiting an hour I was told the unit (pnp2) was faulty and I was to call customer service to arrange a replacement. Mine is on the way to NY.
