Question about Sirius Stiletto 2 Satellite Radio Receiver

4 Answers

Froze at the dog logo

This piece of garbage Stiletto 2 is froze at the dog logo and restarts. Never gets past the dog logo. Windows doesn't even recognize their is a device plugged into it... Anyway, as a last resort I hooked it up to my PC via USB and removed the battery. (It did something different!!!) It gave me a low battery warning with the battery removed and then shut down. I powered the unit back up and with battery and it does the same thing but it now gives me two error messages 1. Error, please wait and 2. Restarting, please wait.

That's about it folks. Have had nothing but problems with this thing and I'm ready to toss my $400 in the trash. Rip'd off by the man again....

Exact same problem here. the fuse inside is blown, according to sirius tech support. I have a new one "on order" as a warranty replacement. They said it could take up to a month (in canada) i read many bad reviews about this unit... now I agree with them completely. 3 months of light home use before a fuse blows? Pathetic. A month wait for a new one? Unforgivable.

You need to run a device recovery. First you need to ensure you have the proper software, (available at http://www.tss-radio.com/links) then you hold options, display and power simultaneously until a screen prompts you to connect to a PC. Then connect via USB and the device should prompt you to initialize a Device Recovery, which you do by pressing OK. Usually takes about 20 minutes. This should restore Stiletto to like new condition.

Before you toss it in the trash call Sirius and complain to them. I have had problems with a few stilettos in the past and I gotten no questions asked warranty replacements that worked perfectly. It was worth the phone call.

Restart the computer and Tap F8 to boot to safe mode. Once you see the options, then use the arrow keys to highlight safe mode and hit enter. Once you are inside safe mode, then do the system restore from there.

Click on start > programs > accessories > system tools > system restore

Select a restoration point and launch it.

If you can't go to safe mode, please drop me a line and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.

I was on Facebook and suddenly my screen froze and I can't do anything? How can I restart with out disconnecting?


If its only the browser that froze (e.g. Firefox, IE, Chrome, etc.) then you can try refreshing the page by clicking the refresh button or f5. If that doesn't work, then try closing the browser, restarting it, and then navigating back to Facebook.

If the whole computer froze, you can try ctrl-alt-del on Windows, apple key-option-esc for mac, and ctrl-esc on linux to try to kill any locked up programs, or just do a hard reboot of the computer itself.

Hope this helps!

Whenever I start my computer, it shows the Sony Vaio logo and right after that my computer starts beeping while staying at this logo. Sometimes it starts with windows restore and then it froze there and...


The beeps are a code to let you know what failed during the Power On Self Test (POST)

Count the beeps - and whether long or short. (Like 3 longs and 2 short, etc)

Go online to the Soony web site, or search for Sony POST codes. A list of codes will tell you what is failing - such as ram - or hard drive, etc. I suspect the latter.

Put your windows installation disc in and boot from that, when it gives you the option to repair, choose that or go to restore and restore the computer back a day or two before the problem.
