Has checking media on the screen. Power will no go off. Have read on troubleshooting sit that if you hold down the volume button and the mode button at the same time it will reset. It didn't work. can you help?
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.

First: push VOL UP and POWER and hold both at the same time to RESET the unit. Then use the MiniUSB cable to load the latest firmware from the Delphi/XM radio website. If you still have an issue after the firmware update, then call Delphi directly for assistance.
A very common problem on the SkyFi3! Press the volume UP and the Power button at the same time and it will finally go off. Go to the Delphi/XM website and upload/download the latest FIRMWARE and upgrade it. Then, call the 800 phone number for Delphi and they will tell you a secret master reset you have to do once or twice, and it will cut down the number of lockups during checking media by quite a bit. Also, do not use a Micro SD card larger than 2MB as well. Good luck, and let me know how it goes for you.
Hold down "power" and "volume up" at the same time to do a reset. You need a 'firmware update' from the Delphi website. Also, you can call Delphi for help too.

Do you have one of the original orange display SkyFi units, or a SkyFi2, or an XT? It sounds like you are using it in a boombox? The rotary dials do wear out on the SkyFi and SkyFi2 and there isn't much you can do - the knob may come off and you can spray in some contact cleaner, but that doesn't always work either. Using a remote control might be your only hope at this point unless you buy a new old stock unit off of eBay or the like. Good luck.
If it freezes, you have to push the volume UP button and Power button to 'reset' the unit.
go to the XM website and get the latest FIRMWARE update for the SkyFi3 and download that. Also, you CANNOT use an SD card larger than 2GB or you'll have problems too. So first, upload the new firmware (using the AC adapter plugged directly into the bottom of the radio) and the cable that they gave you to hook up to your computer and do the firmware update. Delphi customer service can walk you through this too. Good luck, you'll get it pretty soon.
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 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!
