Question about Kenwood Here2Everywhere SIRIUS Radio Receiver with Car Kit

1 Answer

Unit is not locking onto signal

My H2E is 1 year and 3 months old. Problem: Unit is not locking up to signal. When first powered up it beeps and displays the Sirius logo. This last for 5-7 seconds and then the screen goes to black for 1-2 seconds. This will cycle indefinatley. When unit is powered down the Kenwood logo is displayed and turns off normally. Is this a microprocessor error?

Check your antennae installation. Mine was frayed and I had to buy a replacement for the car.

Sirius Receiver goes silent and displays Acquiring Signal.


I have a 3 year old Sportster 2 replay unit that worked perfect until 1 month ago. I posted my problem on this website a day before you did with this same problem. I googled to no end and even spoke to Sirius who wasn't willing to replace my unit at no charge since it was out of warranty. I found an unusual solution on the internet that worked for me. I place my receiver in the freezer for at least 20 minutes (this was recommended by a guy somewhere on the internet with the same problem). I have actually left it in freezer overnight too. This has solved my problem. It is the craziest thing but I thought I would try it before I resorted to replacing all my accessories and receiver since Sirius was less than cooperative with the issue. Anyway, hope this helps.

Power but no signal


I work for sirius so I know about all of these different issues and the most common one is the connections. It is imperative that the radios be connected to power with the cig lighter adapter. This adapter had circuitry in it that lowers the cars 12 volts to 5 volts which the sirius unit ooerates on. The old units were 12 volt and could hard wired into the vehicles fuse block, but all of the new radios operate on 5 volts. If this is not the issue with either of you then you have defective units. Being that all warranty replacement are with remanufactured units, your chance of getting a problematic unit increases after the initial return of your new unit.

Sirius sportster sp-tk1, always displays "acquiring signal"


Sirius does not stand behind their products, There is no out of warranty repair for their radios,  and they do not offer sites for repair. Seems  like this is a definite problem with this model. Their solution is to buy a new radio,(with all the new-docking,boombox etc) accessories. also they charge $75.00 to change to the new radio.I liked my sportster 1 because of the FM modulator. It just had to be centrally located and all the radios in my home picked it up(no docking) the new radios require $50.00 docking stations for each stereo location and radio location, unless you bring a boombox everywhere, and the sound isn't the same.    I feel there should be a class action lawsuit against Sirius for these reasons and I might look into it. What do all you think?

Sportster 4 not working...


I had the same issue. This is what Sirius calls a "Frozen Unit". There is no bypass, unfortunately, and it must be returned.

 

I had mine for 3 days and it froze on the Sirius Logo screen when booting up. If you bought the unit from Sirius, you must contact their E-Commerce department. If bought from a retailer, take it back to the store.

 

Sorry, mate.

Power up problem


This definitely appears to be a heat issue.

I've spoken with Sanyo Service twice regarding this issue. The first time I was told that the solution was to power the unit off for 1 hour, and that it was something that could be serviced. The second time I called, when I asked what the service procedure was, I was told they don't know what causes the problem. Hmm...

In any case, I managed to get the case open. After removing the faceplate, take out the four screws in the front. Using a small screwdriver / pry tool, pop the case off at the FM out port. BE CAREFUL! The FM transmitter is soldered to the front of the case, so don't move it around too much or you'll lose that nice, strong FM transmitter. Once you locate the connection for the FM transmitter (a small wire), you can open the case such that the two halves lay next to one another.

Once inside, you'll see another metal box that contains what I believe is the main chipset (Agere). More screws here. Once you take the screws out, you can lift off the metal case. Here's where I suspect the problem lies. There is a cheap heatsink pad in here that, I suspect, over the years has degraded to the point where it no longer conducts well. I cleaned the top of the chip with IPA and put some new thermal compound inside. I have not yet removed the pad as I did not have an appropriate thickness piece of something else that I could use to replace it. I then reversed the process to put the case together.

My radio is still funny, but it seems to work better now. Since the weather is now cooler, when I have problems with it, I hold it out the window or in front of the air conditioner and it comes back after a couple of minutes. I also disabled the blue LEDs so that the heating inside the unit is minimized. It conceivable that there's a bad solder somewhere, but I didn't see anything that stood out. If I continue to have issues, I plan to go back in at somepont and remove the pad, replacing it with something else (copper foil? another pad?), but until then, I'm still in business, even if somewhat diminished capability. I've got a lifetime subscription that I'm fighting to avoid a transfer on, at least for a little while...

Sirius XTR1 Receiver cycles on dog screen with beep - keyboard locked


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.

Power but no signal


I am running into the same exact issue. I have had my Sportster about 14 months now and this is the first problem I've encountered. We had a cold night in the low 20s and the next morning the Sportster started in with these issues. It's been two weeks now and I have the same exact issues (have power, all connections in tact, no "no signal" message, etc.). Sirius recommended a factory reset through the menu option. I was able to do that, but the problem was not corrected. If anyone has any advice here, please let us know..... Thank you. -Peter

Display Issues


It sounds like the unit is malfunctioning. I think I had display problems with my first Sanyo CRSR-10 radio. At that time, it was still under warranty, so I contacted Sanyo and had it replaced.

The new radio lasted a few months, but it eventually died with another problem -- it just loops the startup sequence (Sirius logo + beep) and never loads up to the tuner interface. Unfortunately, Sanyo only honors the warranty period of the original radio and since it had been over a year since I purchased the first radio, they would not replace the second malfunctioning radio.

If you explain your situation to Sirius, I'm sure they will transfer your subscription to a new radio -- it's relatively easy for them to do it. I think they just want to discourage frivolous subscription transfers (and hacking) but if you convince them that your old radio is dead, they should be able to do it.
