Power to my SkyFi 2

Recently, my SkyFi 2 receiver will not turn on... but in spurts. It will work fine for a day or two, then it won't turn on. It's a power issue, and possibly the wires that connect it to the power supply inside the dash. I have disconnected the power cord from the cradle and reconnected, but that does not solve the problem. I have also removed the SkyFi from the cradle and replaced... does not solve the problem. I have inserted a different SkyFi into the cradle, but that does not solve the problem either. The issue is inside the cradle or inside the dash. My question is, what power source is the unit hooked to inside the dashboard? If it's the radio, then the problems is with the wiring.... however, if the installer hooked it into a different power supply inside the dash, it could be a fuse. The vehicle is a 2001 Chevy Blazer.

Does not power on

This is a very old "1st Generation" unit from 2001, and probably has seen it's time, I'm sorry to say.

Need a manual

I would try the XM Radio DOT Com website and search for user manuals. It is relatively easy - a 3 on a scale of 1-5 to do.

Have difficulty with volume control on Delphi SkyFi. Turning volume knob produces a digital number of 1 to 3. Seems to work better after being warmed up. Can eventually get up to 12 or above. Anything I...

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.

No signal problem on xm home satilite docking staion

You have probably lost a local repeater. Try moving it temporarily to a south-facing window. Here's another one to try: Put in dock and turn off with button on unit. wait 10 seconds, now press "2" "0" "7" "XM" buttons one at a time in that order ON THE FRONT of your SkyFi2 and the radio will go ON by itself! Now, press "Display" 4 times. You will see a screen that says "SAT1", "SAT2" and "TERR". You need a constant checkmark for DEMOD on at least one of the 3 boxes. Please tell me which ones are checkmarked and the average "BER%" number is. The lower the BER% number, the better. If BERis 100%, you are out of luck. Write back and let me know what you read. Press "Display" 5 more times to go back to regular screen. Thanks,

Delphi Skyfi2 won't turn on anymore.

I have the Skyfi 2 with car cradles. I have had them for about 7-8 years. I bought two brand new power cords to use with the cradles so I could move the Skyfi 2 to different vehicles. Neither power cord will power up the Skyfi 2 when in the cradle. I contacted the company I bought them from and they sent me two more cords. These cords are brand new as well. They too do not power the unit. My original power cord still powers the unit but I am trying to eliminate having to move it to each vehicle. I then bought a complete unopened kit from ebay. Using the new kit parts only, my Skyfi 2 will not power up. Did they change the kit since I bought mine and now it is not compatible. Everything looks identical so it is driving me nuts. Any help is appreciated, Thanks!

Delphi XM SkyFi 2 problem

Sounds like an overheating issue...try attaching a heat sink or attach it to the grill of your air conditioner and see if the problem goes away.
