Question about Sirius Starmate ST2 Satellite Radio Receiver

1 Answer

I have a Sirius Starmate ST2 that is stuck in the Acquiring Signal mode. It is not an antenna problem. The radio has failed. Does anyone know of the fix for this? I know it can be fixed since I've seen sites that will repair them. I can open up the radio, am handy with a soldering iron and can read schematics. Does anyone know what part is faulty?

More than likely the antenna connection has jogged loose somehow, and just needs to be soldered. The person who handles all of our repairs at TSS Radio does this often, and I'm sure could tell you specifics. His email is sales@tss-radio.com

Says updating channels 0% complete. Has been doing this for a number of days. Contacted Sirius and they say they can't help me.


Antenna jack is busted, or you have no signal (also due to a bad antenna jack). Without a signal, it will just stay at that screen, since it's trying to download the update. You can purchase repair services for your model on eBay.

Radio shows antenna not deteted or acquiring signal but does not work . antenna and all connections are good, ??


The problem is likely the actual connection inside the Starmate. It sounds like you have tried alternate antennas, which can only mean the unit itself has an issue. What has likely happened is the antenna jack inside the radio has come loose and is no longer making a connection, in which case it could be repairable. Otherwise there are plenty of other 12v Sirius receivers compatible with the same connections if you are looking to replace the head unit.

If it is reading "ACQUIRING SIGNAL" WHAT CAN THIS MEAN??


This typicall represents a failed antenna with either a loose connection or failed wire to the antenna. The "Acquiring Signal" indicates the receiver is trying to locate and decipher a signal from a sattelite. THe antenna is your first diagnostic. After that the receiver is the culprit. When your receiver is Activated or Authorized it is given a "key" to decipher the sattelite signals If it loses the "key" you can try and have Sirius reinitialize by contacting support. If they cannot send the signal and get the proper "Key" loaded its a defect in the receiver functionality.

BAD SATELLITE ANTENNA CONNECTOR-ST2


Any store that carries Sirius radios should have replacement antennas available. If the connector in the radio is bad, you should get a replacement radio. Sirius customer service is good about replacing them for free in most cases.
