sorry for the delay.........
There are a number of XM "Boom Boxes" & the actual Model Number would be nice to know to give you the BEST answers to any questions you might have.
MOST XM "Boom Boxes" need the Satellite Antenna & a PAID Subscription from XM / Sirius to work.
IF you do NOT have a paid Subscription, you should be receiving a signal telling you about XM & a 800 number to subscribe
IF you are getting nothing, no sound or display, then you have a Antenna or Power issue

Let me know if you need further
