Bad TSOP flash chip. No way to fix without disassembling, removing the flash chip, and placing a new flash chip on it. Doing so requires a donor radio (with another issue), and will change your XM Radio ID. You'll also need to have a hot air (or IR) rework station for desoldering the old chip, and a soldering iron for placing the new chip on the radio.
I'd say give pioneer a call since it's a design flaw, and a VERY common issue. My best guess is that it's caused by excessive heat & defective chips.

This is not the site for what you are looking for, you need the fta site. You can go to dss****** and search for any FTA sites, regarding the view sat. If you have anyone programming for you, you will need to take back. If you are trying to DIY then look for a FTA site that will teach you how to JTag your equipment. If im correct you may have to go inside to repair. If it does not reset then Jtag is the best option. I think dsstester or the other sites can help if you look in their forums. Hope this helps!
