Question about Delphi SKYFi3 XM Radio Receiver

1 Answer

My skyfi3 xm radio control buttons are frozen

The radio has power but the words on the screen are light and you can barely see them. I can not turn it off or use any of the buttons. It is a bran new radio and initially I put it in the home music box and the words on the screen were dark and readable but you still could not use any buttons on the radio or remote. I reset the radio and it did not help.

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.

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 skyfi3 wont turn off. currently frozen on clasic vinyl with no sound


Try unplugging the power cable to force it to turn off. Wait for a minute or so, and then plug it back up. Try powering it back on- that should do it.

The Skyfi3 receiver will "self-mute". Is the mute frequency the same as other phone devices or TV remote controllers? I have the Skyfi3 in the kitchen, could an appliance cause this?


Yes, if you mean XM reception. Your microwave oven is actually a radio transmitter near the Satellite Radio frequencies and when you use your microwave, it WILL wipe-out XM radios. Even my neighbor can do it to mine! Check it out - boil some water and watch your signal fade in and out! You're going to want to move the radio, or use a 'repeater' for it, or use the playback of prerecorded.

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.

Delphi SKYFi3 XM Radio Repeater


You begin by setting up your existing (((XM))) antenna the one that came in your home kit (not included in repeater package) in a location that gets good reception of the (((XM))) signal. This may be outside, or on a south facing window sill. This antenna gets plugged into the rear of the Delphi (((XM))) Radio Signal Repeater Transmitter. A power jack is right next to the antenna connection, and should be plugged in and to the wall with the included power supply. There is also a "PWR OUT" selector switch on the rear of the unit which allows you to control the strength of the signal transmitted from the unit.

Once the power and antenna are attached, both blue indicator lights will light up on the face of the unit. The blue antenna indicator will light up only to signify that the antenna is attached correctly. It does not let you know whether your antenna is in a location receiving a good (((XM))) signal or not. You will have to look at the signal strength indicator on your (((XM))) radio receiver do determine best location for the (((XM))) antenna.

Once you have this setup, place the Repeater Antenna close to your existing (((XM))) Radio and plug it into your antenna jack on the (((XM))) radio cradle. This connector is identical to your (((XM))) Home Antenna provided with all Boom boxes and (((XM))) home receivers and kits so compatibility is guaranteed. The Repeater Receiver Antenna does not require any separate power connections. Hope this helps!

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.

My delphi xm is frozen


My radio was stuck on "scanning media" and the regular reset (volume up and Mode) did not work.
Nothing that I did, fixed it...
I called Delphi and they said...
(1) Put radio in it's cradle, press Volume UP/Mode buttons for 3 seconds until it resets.
(2)Then when the "scanning media" message appears press up arrow, down arrow, up arrow.

My delphi screen unlocked. I LOST everything that I had recorded, but that was fine with me.

I had to update the firmware and everything is working fine.

Losing all my recorded songs was much better than having to send in my radio!

Hopefully this will work for you!
Delphi was extremely helpful and very nice so don't be afraid to call them if this doesn't work!
