There are a couple of different ways the antenna connection can break. Docks and antenna replacements are available, though the actual prong itself may be difficult to track down.

It appears to be a common flaw with this model.

"all of a sudden the thing starts intermittently rebooting itself. Then it stopped receiving any audio, even though the display indicated that it was tuned in." -dissatisfied custom complaint.

Hopefully you will be able to return the device, although I have seen online a lot of people not getting theirs from the manufacturer. It appears to be a total loss and I am sorry to inform you of this information.

I wish it was as simple as a dead battery, have you checked? Please let me know if there is anything else I could help you with, or have any other questions I could try to help you. If you enjoyed my reply please don't hesitate to rate it with the "blue thumbs" (granted the news is upsetting).

Turns out the radio isn't broken after all. In my research on your site I ran across a user who said he/she just plugged their radio in, turned it on and waited. I tried that and after a couple of minutes of a Sirius logo screen, then a blank screen followed by a high pitched beep the radio started playing again. I then remembered that one of the last things I input with the remote before the radio stopped working properly was mistakenly selecting an unwanted prompt on the AutoShutDown menu. When the radio finally came back on I selected Factory Default to reset all functions and now it operates properly. Thanks for the help.

More than likely, it is the antenna. Sad to say, but the Sirius antennas go bad very easily. Make sure there is no undue pressure on the antenna wire itself, as that can aide to premature failure. Bad antennas are the number one reason for the unit to read 'antenna not detected.' I have seen plenty of the antennas go bad and they were not misused one bit. If you contact Sirius, they're usually pretty good at understanding the misfortune of losing your paid service. Sometimes they'll ship you out a new antenna.

Hello, I had the same problem with my xact xtr1 and I was advised by xact that they have no repair process in works and most likely wont. They did say let it run for 10 minutes and once you have a menu switch to factory defaults which proves to be a worthless fix. I would have to pay $39.95 for a new radio...horrible customer service. The bright side is that Sirius will not charge me the $75.00 transfer fee as a good faith gesture. I have decided to switch to another radio and leave the Xact brand out of the equation, if there is no upgrade or modification to the existing equipment why set yourself up for a future failure.

I have the same problem, when I contact Xact (through e-mail) they said that the unit would have to be replaced. They didn't say that THEY would replace it, but said it had to be replaced.

I had a similar type problem where i have a lifetime subscription and my XACT VISOR XTR3 unit had a faulty power connection that was driving me nuts. i decided to try and swap out the internal receiver component with a new unactivated unit i bought on ebay. (all the types are out there and pretty cheap even for new)

in opening the new one up i found the only difference from unit to unit is the receiver brain inside the unit, and it is relatively easy to swap out the brain into the body of a new unactivated unit. just four small screws and carefully pull the brain out of the long multi-pin connector. i put the old brain into the new carcass, screwed it back together and it works like a champ. just have some patience in figuring out exactly how your particular unit comes apart, and you will need small screwdrivers and either a small allen-key set or torx set - my old unit had the allen-key screws on the outer case and the newer one had torx screws.

when in doubt find the manual and read it .

Do you mean the Philips AZ1040 portable radio with cassette player? If so, the volume control is the ring to the left of the LCD display. Turn the ring clockwise to increase the volume and counter-clockwise to lower the volume. The manual for this radio is available on the product support site: . The current link to the manual is . See page 10 for the volume control information. The button in front of the power slider on the top of the radio lets you turn on or off the dynamic bass boost. I hope this helps. Cindy Wells
