Question about Delphi XpressRC XM Satellite Radio Receiver with Vehicle Kit

Open Question

XpressRC Freezes This has happened several times! My RC will freeze up - can't power off, can't change stations, scroll at bottom of screen doesn't move. The only way to "recover" is to pull the power out of the cig lighter. Doing this also resets all my settings back to default (FM turned off, my stocks removed, my alerts cleared, etc). Does anyone have any idea what could be causing this? Is there a battery backup on these devices? I'm tired of reprogramming all my channels and settings every time this happens!

    Had same problem. Sent mine back to Delphi for repair/replacement. Got the new unit about a week & a half ago & then it froze up on me yesterday... Exact same thing! Beginning to think these are garbage.

    I had the same problem. Delhi XpressRC began occasionally freezing up within a few weeks after buying. Had to unplug to get it unfroze, but that deleted all preset stations and settings. After a few months this got worse and worse and then it quit working. Called Delphi and they sent a replacement. Within a few minutes of using the replacement, it also locked up on me and powered off. This happened both in car and home system. I too think perhaps these are junk and Delphi is not admitting to it.

SOURCE: Roady XT Transmitter problem

Mine is doing the same as well. Been working for 1 year. Now it starts cutting out while listening. I noticed if it is broadcasting the fm frequency menu is there. The minute it cuts out I press Menu and that menu item is gone. It comes back once the radio starts working again. Mine is 1 year old. I got it Christmas of 2006. I do know that if you have it directly connected then this menu item will not appear and that is by design. I think my xm roady xt has gone bad.

SOURCE: My screen is blank...

I had this same problem. I took out the lithium battery rubbed off the contacts and inserted it. Scrren came up clear as a bell and works fine now. I was also having a problem with the battery charging. Think what I did solved both problems.

SOURCE: delphi skyfi 3 freezes up.

What you need to do is simultaneously hold the VOLUME UP button as well as the MODE button. This will reset the unit. From what I read of your problem, you were simply holding the VOLUME plus MODE buttons.

SOURCE: No FM Frequency option

I had the same problem with all three of my Roady XTs. I posted a video with directions for solving the problem on YouTube:

Basically, you just need to have the antenna unplugged when you power up, and push menu right away, then select. Not sure why, but it worked on all of my Roady XTs. On the oldest one I had to push menu more than once. Good luck!

I a 16 user L230. my problem is that the terminals freezes. At logon, they are fine but they start to freeze after about 20mins after i switch the system on. its not particular stations athat freezes but...

The terminals never actually freeze as they are getting desktop sessions from the host. What can happen is the desktop session can lock up and thus any corresponding user input doesn't happen due to the session being locked up. Next time this happens, see if the server/host is responsive. Assuming it is, launch Performance Monitor(Provided as part of the Windows OS) by going to Start ' Run ' Perfmon. Monitor your CPU performance. See what's taking all the CPU resources. It's not uncommon to see unncessary programs running, i.e. jusched.exe (Java Scheduler update), qttask.exe (Quick Time updater), etc. All these programs and other unnecessary programs run at startup and run for EVERY single user so in your case, the jusched.exe runs 16 times and can take valuable system resources. Disable these by going to Start ' Run ' msconfig, press enter, the farthest tab on the right labled STARTUP is where you can disable these programs. After deselecting the ones you don't need, reboot the host and tell the dialog box to NEVER tell you again so that it doesn't alarm you're users that you've messed with the startup config. Lastly, don't overlook that fact that you need 1GB NIC and backbone to the server, each device can take up to 15MB/s of network bandwidth.

Your model has a maximum resolution of 720p. What you might want to do is make sure that both your cable/sat box and game stations are outputting at no more than 720 resolution. It's easy to assume that all HDTVs may accept a higher signal, and while they might, some of the scene changes or handshakes may make that operation cause the symptoms you describe.

Hi RC hobby,

Sounds like you have a faulty power supply or logic board. The later is most likely. Once the unit get warmed up the component tolerance become critical to it's performance. If an ageing component is starting to fail then then normally happens once it fairly warm. The reverse can be true, it just depends on what type of part is failing.

I'd check the it's internal power supply for signs of faulty capacitors. However, you do so at your own risk. See this website for details on identifying bad capacitors. Please read the safety warning on the back of the unit before opening. Ensure the unit is unplugged from your mains supply.

Please don't forget to to leave feedback.

Hope this helps,
