2009 Camry with regular audio system.
I turned my car on (the radio stays on i never turn it off) and the cd popped out. The radio won't come back on, doesn't give error message. A radio display is flashing. The manual isn't giving any help. What can I do to figure this out without taking it to the dealer?? Help!

I had the same issue. I had a 08 Honda Accord that was fully XM capable. I just got a 11 Camry LE as a company car and was excited to transfer my XM from the Accord to Camry. Went to Best Buy and was told the same story. I think it sucks that Toyota advertises the car as XM compatible when it's really not. It's only about 50% compatible. I'm not going to spend the xtra cash on a fleet car.

My 2010 Camray keeps losing the signal for the sat. radio. Display says "no signal" and after several minutes will say "Loading". Have taken to dealer and they cannot find the problem. Suspect the problem may be the ant. Can I install an aftermarket ant. and where does it connect to the receiver? This problem may occur several times a day. Dealer cannot duplicate the situation. This happens when the vehicle is on the open road with no obstructions above vehicle. Also this is a factory istalled unit and vehicle is still under warrenty

It's under warranty, don't mess with it or you may void the warranty.
Keep taking it back until they replace the radio and antennae if necessary. Have video phone available to record symptoms when you are driving, so they can see it occurring, since they can't seem to replicate it. You may have to open a record with toyota corporate help desk. Keep excellent records of every date/time it fails, every dealer repair, etc.
#248 of 253 Whining Sound When Accelerating
Aug 26, 2011 (5:54 pm)
2007 Camry with JBL audio system. Recently (never did this before), when using an MP3 player plugged into aux jack, I get a whining noise which corresponds to engine acceleration. In other words, when coasting it is barely noticeable but gets annoyingly louder as I accelerate. Any ideas on how to remedy this will be appreciated.

Did you tint the windows? some of the new tint carries metallics that can affect radio/sat transmissions

Figured out my problem. I was using the dc power source that's adjacent to the aux input. Once I plugged the ac adapter into the power source on the console, the whining stopped. I guess those 2 being that close together was causing interference.

Follow-up. Dealer installed a new antenna and no more lost signals. Been working great for over a month. New antenna fixed the problem. If you are having a simular problem with XM radio I suggest you try a new antenna

Had similar problem, was in radio. Keep getting radios that work with the bluetooth or SAT, not both. Radios seem to be a piece of crap. Heard that new company is supplying the 2012s.
