Question about Audiovox SIR-PNP3 SIRIUS Radio Receiver

3 Answers

No Display All of the sudden, my display is no longer working. The unit plays music without a problem. I can press the preset channels and that works. This happens in both my boombox and my car. Any suggestions??? Would hate to have to buy another. Only had this one for 1 1/2 years!

    Thank you, Duncan. But this is a Sirius Satellite receiver. I take it from my car to a boombox at home. The display is completely dead. Don't know if there are lamps, fuses or whatever. That is what I am trying to find out. Even if I open to figure this out, don't know what I am looking for. Trying to find someone that knows exactly what I need to repair and where it is located within the receiver.

What you need to look for is the ribbon cable Duncan mentioned. It should be the only cable that goes from the screen to the main board (the largest electronics board). That cable should be fairly easy to spot once you have the case open. If that cable is disconnected or torn at all, that's your problem. You said it's completely dead, which means it's not a bulb or the lamp (which is too bad, because those are easier to replace). Unless that ribbon cable is loose or damaged, this will not be cost effective or at all easy to repair. In that case, it will be cheaper to replace.

On your car, see if you can see even a very very faint display if you view it at just the right angle. If so, you have a display backlight that has failed or burned out (if it uses lamps). Replace the lamps and you are good to go. If your unit in your car is a flip face then you may have a bad wire in the ribbon cable that connects the face to the mother board. This can be replaced fairly cheaply. Good luck with your unit.

2 Press ON/STANDBY while simultaneously pressing PRESET CHANNEL 2 and PRESET CHANNEL 3.
3 Once the display starts flashing at intervals of about 1 second, release the two buttons

Which three fuse's did you replace ? You should check for B+ voltage on both side's of the fuse . Two little metal tabs on top of the fuse. Voltage on both , fuse is good .

Radio for Sandisk model SDMX1


Press the AB button to toggle between Audio Play, Radio, and Voice Record. Use the left/right scroll to highlight Radio. Then press the center button or play/pause button once to select radio.

You will see FM Radio in the upper left corner of the display. Under that you will see either Preset followed by a number OR Channel. If it is on Preset, you can use the left/right scroll to switch between preset stations. If you press and hold the AB button, the player will scan through all frequencies to find the strongest stations in your area and set those as the default preset stations. When on a particular station, press and hold the record button to delete that station from your presets.

Press the center button once to switch to Channel (or back to Preset). Under Channel, you can manually scroll through the frequencies yourself. Push left or right and hold for about a second to find the next available station.

Press the play/pause button once to toggle between Mono and Stereo.

Those are all the functions I've found so far. Hope it helps.

Good luck,

Switch bwtn CONT or SINGLE play on Denon's DN-C615


Try this:
1. While holding "Title", Press Stop to enter what Denon calls "presetting" mode.
2. Press Track Search Reverse or Track Search Forward until you get to 20, which is the presetting mode for Single/Continuous Play.
3. Press Play to toggle between Continuous and Single Play.
4. Press Stop to exit Presetting Mode.
Hope this works! I just finished a belabored job without Single Play on this unit. I have been searching for the answer too. I don't have access to the deck to try it, but I think this will do the job.
