Stilleto 2 error message

When turning on device a error message pops up then the device shuts down. This keeps happening not allowing the device to actually start. Is there any way to restart or return device to original settings?

    After working for 9 mos. (and replacing my S50 because of a similar problem), my Stiletto 2 while in the car dock will turn on with the ignition, display the dog on the screen, and freeze there. If the key is removed, the unit doesn't shut down like it normally would. I've gotten it to start a couple of times by taking the battery out and leaving it dormant for a couple of hours, but after listening to maybe 2 minutes of radio, it makes a CD skipping sound (same note over-and-over), then the error screen, then off. Restart? Goes to the dog again. I have a warranty, but what is annoying is the fact that I listen to the library at the gym, and now I have nothing to listen to. I don't think there's much I can do but get it replaced.

Reloaded software on mine. It didnt work. The reboot loop issue as I call it started after I accepted an update for the unit online when it was plugged in for a music update.
Sirius tech support was useless. In the end I lost all of my music and the unit is now just an MP3 is useless as a radio. I cancelled all three radios on my subscription! THEIR update ruined my working unit...and they did nothing for me! They offered me 2 months free! LOL with no radio working! Then when I cancelled my radios, they offered me 3 months free!!! WTF 2 months for a ****** off customer, 3 months for a resigning customer!

Truthfully, you will be better off just sending it back for a new one.

Stilleto 2 keeps shutting down

It may be a problem with the power switch, I too had this problem. It seems like the power switch is stuck in "down" position as if you were holding it. I remove my battery cover (along with the battery) and gently jiggle the switch up and down to "loosen" whatever may be sticking it in place and it seems to work. I have encountered this problem several times. I did not send it out for repair. It works fine for me (knock on wood).

Unit keeps beeping and turning itself on and off. Have had this radio for 5 years and never a problem until now.

Hi sasutton,

SIRIUS-Ready radios are usually identified by the SIRIUS dog symbol appearing somewhere on the radio itself. A SIRIUS-Ready radio is a radio that may require the purchase of a SIRIUS tuner in order to be activated.

Every 90 minutes if you do not interact with the player, player display a notice and play a small audible alert to ask if you're still listening to the player. If you're not, the player will shut down after five minutes of the message being up there. If you are there, all you have to do is click the button and you can continue listening. Sirius player do this so that we're not streaming to computers that have no listeners, to maintain optimum performance for active listeners. You are probably not sitting at your computer when this message pops open which is why you get interrupted.

Good luck!
And Thanks.

When I plug the stilleto into my car adapter it shuts down. Then powers back on to a screen that simply reads "Sirius Connect"

I had the same problem with my home dock, it worked after unplugging the power to the dock for a few seconds

Error message says to recover connect to a pc via usb. but nothing happens please help!!!!!!!!!

You have to download the recovery software from Sirius. Then you have to hold down the options and display buttons while turning it on. This should initiate the recovery process. This is all outlined in the manual with the recovery software. Having said that I wouldn't bother. These things are junk. I'm on my 8th one from warranty.

Froze at the dog logo

exact same problem here. the fuse inside is blown, according to sirius tech support. I have a new one "on order" as a warranty replacement. They said it could take up to a month (in canada) i read many bad reviews about this unit... now I agree with them completely. 3 months of light home use before a fuse blows? Pathetic. A month wait for a new one? Unforgivable.

Can i use existing satelite antena on my audi

The antenna should plug into the Stilleto car kit if your Audi is equipped with Sirius already. Otherwise you will have to use another Sirius antenna.

I had a sync problem with the Stiletto 2 (SL2) and was able to resolve it by the following procedure:

Click "Start"
Click "Run" > Type "devmgmt.msc"
Click "+" next to "Other Devices"
Note: You should see a question mark and exclamation point next to "Stiletto 2"
Right click on "Stilleto 2" (to see menu); then, left Click "Update Driver."
Follow the steps in the windows hardware update wizard.
