Question about Delphi SKYFi SA10000 XM Radio Receiver
I've had my delphi sky fi for about a year and a half. All of the sudden, it won't turn on. At all. I called tech support at delphi and they told me i was screwed and had to buy a new radio. Power is coming out of my car, so the problem must be with the radio. I did not receive paper instructions with the box. Does anyone know why the radio may not be working? Is there a way to reset it?

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

hi Mr.Frazier....is the xm radio hardwired installed? if it's a yes you have to go to a professional(bestbuy, retailers) to have the connection check.. the problem is not within the xm radio..it's on how it was installed or set up...
If the radio was not built..well, that's much better we just have to check the audio connection from you're xm to fm radio (make sure to check if what band it is connected..such as AUX,CD etc.) if there's a sound but you're only getting preview channels..refresh must be send on the radio...you can call xm to ask for that OR do it online at www.refresh.xmradio.com and type in your 8 digit radio I.D just have to follow the activation instruction faithfully...Godbless!

Its probably time to just replace it. They are not worth repairing. If you contact XM customer service they may offer you one at a discount. They replaced one of mine for $20. I thought that was a fair deal.

The power adapter is the problem.
I have two of these units.
The one I was using died and will no longer power on.
So, I called xm and switched to my back-up.
That one's dead, too.
I tried two adapters, four batteries and neither radio works.
BUT, I just happened to try a third adapter I had.
After re-setting the device (Take out battery, depress reset button with a pin. It's in the upper left in back. It's a VERY small hole.)
Then, I plugged the cord back in, and the battery is charging.
Apparently, the power adapters have a limited life span.
I'll be picking up a few new ones now.

SOURCE: Problem with the Delphi SKYFi3
Common problem with SkyFi3 units. You have to press the Volume UP button and hold it while you press the POWER button; this will 'reboot' your radio, then you can try it again to get it to go off.
You will need to update your firmware on the radio using the baby USB cable and the unit plugged into your computer WITH the battery recharged FIRST. Also, go to the www. xmradio dot com website and download the SkyFi3 FIRMWARE update. Then you need to download the "firmware update" into your SkyFi3. If this doesn't fix your lockup problem, you need to call DELPHI customer support, and they can tell you one more 'master reset' method. After the firmware update, it might take 2 or 3 'restarts'. Again, press and hold the Volume UP and PWR at the same time to reset a 'locked-up' SkyFi3. Regards, John
