Question about Tao XM2go Satellite Radio Receiver

1 Answer

Tao XM2go shuts off for no reason

My Tao XM2go shuts off for no reason during operation in both my car and at home. Pressing the power button will turn the unit back on. The unit may operate for several hours or several minutes but it will turn itself off again. The does not seem to be heat related and there seems to be no pattern to the failure.

    Mine does not stay powered on when I disconnect from charger. Bought new battery, no change. Not sure why???

    Mine works fine in the house but turns off frequently while driving. I assume it's a problem with the cigar lighter power plug unit or intermittent connection issue at the point of contact where it makes circuit with lighter receptical. I moved it to the other port in my truck (vehicle has two). It ssems a little better in one than the other so that may be a clue. I'm about to figure a way to hard wire this thing into my truck's 12 volt power. I would imagine taking the power unit apart and connecting wiring directly would be the way to accomplish this re-engineering. Any thoughts would be appreciated. [email protected]

You could try taking the batteries out and cleaning the contacts, replacing the batteries and/or using sellotape to hold the batteries in place. They could be loose and disconnect when you move it in a certain way. If not the batteries, you could try further dismantling and cleaning, but you may just end up with a clean ball of sellotape that still has problems...! worth a try. stoodleysnow
