Problem with the Delphi SKYFi3 XM Radio Receiver UNIT LOCKED UP WILL NOT COME ON OR GO OFF


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

My unit starts up and just says at top "Checking Media" can not use any buttons, just frozen!


Take the sd card out, reboot by holding volume up and menu at the same time for 5 secs, wait for it to fully boot into the music, then put the sd card back in.

Updating firmware


Make sure you hold the "UP" button and "Power" button at the same time to reset when it freezes up. Recharge the battery. You'll have to borrow a PC to update the firmware.

My skyfi3 xm radio control buttons are frozen


Try rebooting ... this has sure solved a lot of that kind of problem for me. Press the "mode" button and the "volume up" button together. You might have to hold it a few seconds.

My delphi xm is frozen


Hold the up volume button and the mode button at the same time. I have to do it almost every day. This is only a problem when using the car kit. No problem at all when using with portable kit or home kit.
