Question about Delphi MyFi SA10113 XM Radio Receiver with Home and Car Kit

1 Answer

Blinking and Whining

My "MyFi" is going crazy! The display flickers on & off in the docking unit. Won't hold a charge out of the docking unit, and is making a whining/grinding noise (sort of like a cd-rom drive that is struggling). Any ideas?

    I have EXACTLY the same problem. It started after I had it for a year. Whenever I put it in the charger it blinks "Battery Charging" on and off and makes a terrible whine/grind sound. The battery never really charges at all. The only real problem I have had, but I want to throw it out a window!

I had this happen, and I solved it by connecting it to the car charger for a while, then bringing it in and connecting it DIRECTLY to the AC charger for a full charge. (This assumes the battery is not just kaput.)

Here's what I think happens: The AC charger doesn't have enough current capability to run the unit by itself AND keepp the battery charged (bad design), so, if left continuously ON, the battery will eventually drain. In this state, if you shut it off, the unit senses a low-battery condition and will try to charge, but the charging circuit tries to draw too much from the AC charger and the voltage droops (causing the whine) to the cutoff point (causing it to stop charging, another case of bad design). The car charger has more current capability, so it gets the battery charged enough to use the AC charger again.

Nyko charger won't charge


Had same problem with blinking lights and not charging.
Plug charger base in (blinking lights), remove controllers, and plug USB cable into front charge slot (behind hinged panel). This reset charger base and lights stopped blinking. As FYI - the USB was connected to other device (charging it). Add the controllers and correct charging lights show up - including the controller 1 and 2 symbols. Controllers now charging.

Sony walkman NZ-E353 was working fine both alone and attached too a docking station. Next day it won't come on and keeps flashing "HOLD" before turing off.Battery is fully charged. Please...


I'm sorry that the Walkman Player is not turning ON normally and displaying "HOLD" message. The "HOLD" message indicates that the Walkman player is set to HOLD mode by sliding the HOLD button on the right side. Please make sure that the HOLD switch is not activated.

If the issue persists after moving it from HOLD position, please reset the Walkman player by pressing the reset button using a sharp pointed object. The reset button is located on the rear of the unit.

Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if you require any clarification.

MYFI XM2GO WILL NOT TURN ON. ALSO WHEN I PUT IN CRADLE WILL NOT SHOW CHARGING


I had the same problem. This procedure from the "Technical Questions" section of http://shopdelphi.com/consumers/support/faqs/myfi/ worked for me:
"My MyFi won't power up, how do I reset it?
To reset your MyFi, start by turning the receiver off and removing it from its (car, home, audio system) cradle. Then remove the back cover and battery. Using a small paperclip, press the reset button located on the top left corner of the battery compartment. Now plug the AC power adapter into a wall outlet and plug the power port directly into the bottom of the MyFi (battery stays removed). Wait 10 seconds and listen for a beep. After you hear the beep the message "insert battery" will appear. Cycle the MyFi to ensure it powers up and powers down. If the power cycle is normal, then turn off the MyFi, unplug the power adapter, and reinstall the battery. Re-plug the AC power adapter directly into the bottom of the MyFi. Wait 10 seconds and listen for a beep. After the beep you will see the message "battery charging". Leave the MyFi plugged in until it's fully charged. You will see the message "charging complete" displayed. After the MyFi is fully charged, turn it on and reset to the factory defaults. Unplug the MyFi from the AC power adapter and using the battery power leave it on until it fully discharges (approximately 2-5 hours). Plug the MyFi in using the AC power adapter to recharge the unit and resume normal use. If you need help at any point during this process contact us at 1-877-463-3574 for technical support."

I hope it works for you too.

I can't get my delphi myfi sm radio to work even when I use the AC adapter on the cradle. For a while, it would work and then go off by itself. Now, it won't even go on. What's the problem?


You should: Insert your MyFi into its home stand and plug the AC adapter into the wall to charge the battery.But if its really not charging a battery replacement is already needed for this unit and you can get the battery from a authorize service center.

My Delphi XM2GO MyFi has stopped transmitting to an FM station on a house radio. Is it repairable? If so, is there a facility in the Cleveland, OH area where I can take it?


IF you take it out of the home dock and run it on batteries, I'll bet you it works again. The newer home docks TURN OFF the FM transmitter. Try a car dock, or try it with just the power plug plugged into the bottom of the MyFi, without the home dock and see if you can now get the FM transmitter to work. Let me know. Thanks and good luck.

Green battery light on the archos 5 but when i disconnect it from dock or usb no green lights abd completely dead - won't switch on either in dock or out???


Power green LED light should come on, CHG green LED light should also come on showing the battery is being charged. Leave your unit in Suspend mode while charging it, DO NOT turn it completely off as "Shutting Down.." because it will not charge your battery.

I just purchased an almost new Archos 5 on eBay recently, and the first day I had it, happened to me that I left the unit off and charging on the Mini Dock with external AC power supply, after 13-14 hours the CHG light still wasn't blinking. Then I though maybe I have to leave the unit in Suspend mode rather than completely off, which I did, and in a matter of 3 hours it fully charged the battery.

Again, do not shut down completely the unit, leave it on Suspended mode, or even on, and connected it to your mini dock, after a while the screen will go blank the unit will go into Suspended mode by itself, and after 3 hours on external power supply or 8 hours via USB on PC should be completely charged and your CHG light should be blinking, indicating the battery is charged.

I hope this helped.

Replace the battery. Your Myfi will not work without it -- even if it is plugged into the charger.

Docking station


I had the same problem. I did need to take the clear plastic insert off but then I had to put a rubber band around the dock and camera (more on the left of the camera and dock) to hold it evenly on there since the camera was leaning on the right and wasn't charging for me. Now it charges as soon as I put it on there with the rubber band with no blinking red light anymore! Hope this helps!

I have the same problem. I finally was able to get Delphi Tech Service and found out that these units have a flaw. they have been going out after about 14-18 months and there is no known repair... neither does Delphi offer a repair service for this problem.

While in the truck, make sure the antenna is on the outside of the truck. It has magnet so it is easy to stick to the roof. Do not know what to say about the home antenna, mine is not working right now.
