Question about Xact Communication Xact Portable Boom Box for XTR Receivers - XS075 Boombox

Open Question

I have 2 Xact boombox with Xact XTR7 receiver sets - One I use at home & the other at work. The receiver at work recently stopped working. The Sirius logo comes on and the screen is illuminated but no sound and no ability to navigate through menu or anything. Took it home and popped it into my home boombox to see if the issue was the receiver or boombox, and same thing, so I decided to take my XTR7 receiver from home and use it at work until I got a replacement. Guess what? After one day of use, THAT one isn't working! Screen is illuminated, but nothing - not even the Sirius logo. I brought THAT one back home to it's original boombox and same thing. So obviously my work boombox has somehow fried both receivers. Tested my MP3 player on the boombox and it works fine. Just kills receivers I guess?!Has anyone ever heard of this happening? I'm pretty upset now considering I've had 2 receievers ruined within days of each other. I don't even know if they can be fixed or where to bring them. Please advise! Thanks!

SOURCE: boombox does not maintain connection to radio

if the problem can be "fixed" by pushing down the reciever, it must be caused by some sort of loose contacts or wiring. there's a good chance that tightning some screw will solve this problem. if you have basic electronic skills you can open the unit and check for any loose screw or wire.

My xact boombox just stops


Thanks to all of you for your detailed comments I found an easy way to repair the boom box. Many of you said that if you pushed down on the radio hard it would play so I tried it and I too had the same problem, but since it is impossible to stand all day holding the radio and get anything else done I figured if you can't lower the radio raise the plug! Here is what I did, first unplug the radio so you don't short anything out, then at the front of the plastic plate the radio plugs into gently pry it up with a lock blade knife (as a rule kitchen knives are too flexible) then get a small self tapping screw (the smaller the better) and screw it into the gap made by the knifeyour radio will now play without holding it

Xact XTR2 will not turn on


Its likely that the unit itself is bad. Do you have another dock or boombox to plug it in and trouble shoot with? If it doesn't power up in multiple sources it could be dead. Either way, TSS Radio can help:

Problem with Xact Communication XTR1 SIRIUS Radio Receiver


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.

Sirius Sportster SP-B1 Boombox


Your best best is to replace the units. Sirius usually does it for free for existing customers. You can a good discount on a new boombox as well. The new models are designed to work with more Sirus receivers on the market.

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.

Sirius problem


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.
