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?
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 player...it 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!

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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
