Question about Sirius Boombox for Select Satellite Radio Receivers

1 Answer

No sound Model SP-B1a This unit was hooked to a 12V battery but the polarity was reversed. Everything works but there is no sound at all from the boom box. I've opened it up and have the circuit board out hoping to find a blown/burnt diode but everything looks fine. Any clues?

Sportster 5 turns on and off randomly every few seconds hooked to a dock.


Sportster units get very hot ! If you use it in the boombox stop ! Take the radio unit out - remove the silver cover from the boombox ( don't overlook the 2 hidden screws under the speaker grills ) take a dremel tool with a cutting wheel - and cut all the shrouding away around the top of the reciever. This will allow the radio to run way cooler ! I also drilled several holes thru the swivel mount to allow better air-flow !

THIS UNIT AFTER 3 YEARS WILL NOT RECGONISE AN ANTENA,THIS HAPPENS ON MY HOSE BASE,CAR BASE AND MY BOOM BOX, I HAVE REPLACED ALL HOME BASE,CAR BASE AND BOOM BOX AND ALL ANTENAS NOTHING HAS HELPED.......I'M...


Hi Glenn,
Understandably frustrating, but it sounds like an easy fix.
First, go through the settings on your radio to be certain that nothing was set incorrectly.
Second, make sure your antenna wire is not malfunctioned or tampered with. Broken pins can render an antenna useless. These satellite radio antennae are fairly cheap to purchase on their own, so you could try purchasing a new one and see if it works.
If that's fine, open the receiver. Generally these radio's use small torx or philips screws. Once opened, check the area where the antenna is plugged in - is the lead/wire broken? Is the solder coming off? All of this can be fixed easily if spotted. You can even solder the antenna permanently on if you like.

My ST2 just died. Still picks up all the channels fine but just doesn't output any sound through the 1/8'' minijack. I've only been using it for 5 yrs on my home system, no car, no boom box dock etc. ...


This could be because of an amp, or it could just be a bad solder joint. Unfortunately, it's impossible to find an amp to replace it because sirius does not release a schematic. So, most likely it's irreparable.

If you would like to see if it's a bad solder, just leave it near a heater and plug it in. If it works, that should tell you that you should reflow your radio. Reflowing is easy, just remove the circuit board from the plastics and heat it up to 800-1000 degrees F with a heat gun. Let it cool and reassemble.

Same problems here also, had sp-1 for 4 yrs no probs at all! I even have a brand new antenna, needed to be replaced any way, thought that would fix problem (ACQUIRING SIGNAL) No luck ,why does everything...


Go to XM, I did. But first, call Sirius and ask them to 'refresh' your receiver. Leave unit on channel 1 for 30 minutes and see if problem go away. Make sure to turn off and on with pushbutton on unit - not remote, and do not just diesconnect power..

Sportster does not work


The issue will have to be the sportster unit. It would be too much of a coincidence for bothe the car cradle and Boom-Box to have something wrong with them. I have seen this before...most of the time, the connections on the sportster will have a bad solder joint. This will cause it to turn on and off intermittently. You can confirm this by wiggling the unit when it is docked and getting it to turn on and off. This is not something that would be easy to repair as you will want an electronics repair to fix. The Sportster comes with a 1 year warranty from the manufacturer, so if it is covered, then you can get a new tuner and apply your old subscription to the new one.

Need to find a satellite receiver for my JVC-200 boom box


I have a JVC boom box and I use a Sirius Sratus radio on mine through the line input of the boom box. Probably sounds better than the Sirius boom box that plugs into it.
