Exclamation Sirius Sportster power button

Help! My Sirius Sportster isn't working. It is getting power- the power button is lit, but it will not turn on. I tried it both in the car and in the boombox. Anyone else with this problem?

to Sirius Backstage..... Which model Sportster.. ? (I think there are about 5 different models )

If it's a Sportster 4, I've seen a few messages about them going dead and not getting past the startup screen. Other than that, the Sportster line is very good.

If your remote doesn't work, I can't think of any quick fix to a unit that won't turn on.. It's probably a warranty issue.

It's the Sportster 2, and the unit will not power up using the remote either. I've had it about 14 months now- I guess the warranty is up, huh?

I have the Sportster Replay and mine in doing the same thing. I have had it since 12-05, soooo yes the warranty it up, so I guess I'm screwed.

Kiss them good bye, after about a year they die out.

Don't give up too easily.

Try a new power adapter. Sometimes they can fail in a way where they look good but are really bad.
