Question about Sirius Satellite Radio S50-TK1 Satellite Radio Receiver with Car Kit
When I bought the S50, it worked OK, except that I usually had to seat the unit twice on the car or home dock, as it wouldn't power up the first time. That, and the battery has never charged properly. Due to short supply, I didn't do anything about it (idiot). Now, my unit has completely stopped working. It's out of warranty, and the morons at Sirius have no options in such a situation. Does anyone know of a company that diagnoses/repairs S50s?
I have the same problem. You seat the thing and one channel comes through, then another, or you lose the signal. Why? The pins in the S-50 unit do not perfectly align with the pins on the car dock. From the pluging in/ unplugging the unit over time, wear and tear, the microfine pins or whatever do not connect and you can't get a smooth response from the S-50. i don't know of any fix short of replacing the whole thing.

Perhaps getting a new battery will do it. RadioShack has some online. You could take you chances on eBay also. Also, because you have all the accessories for the S50, you could buy a new unit on eBay that is used.
