    i can't get my stiletto to go into device recovery mode

  • markp_370 Aug 20, 2008

    I have the same problem - the channel I am listening begins skipping and repeating the last half-second or so. I cannot turn off the radio, and must take off the battery for it to finally stop.



    I ran a system recovery last night, and it did the same thing today when I was listening to it.

    It happened a few months ago and came and went every so often. In the last 24 hours though, it has happened about 5 times, including when I recieved the "Error" message, which lead me to the system recovery program.



    Any ideas what this problem is?

    I have experienced the same problem and have run the device recovery three times in the past week and a half. Device has become a major POS. Works for about a day or two, then starts its skipping problems before it displays the feared error message. Am seriously considering not renewing my subscription when it is expired, which is a shame.

Actually, it happens outside, and won't work again until I manually take off the battery, and then restart it.

Usually this is a signal issue and it happens when recording indoors mostly, right? The signal dropps but only for a second or two so when you look at it its fine. you've probably notived it cutting in and out when "live" from time to time. Use your signal meter built in to the device and find the strongest signal location. If that doesnt work or its not the problem, update the software. If that doesnt work try running the recovery software but only as a last resort because you'll lose your recordings.

How long does the battery life last on a stiletto 10 SL10PK1 of how long i can use it before i have to charge it again


My stilleto lasts about 1 hour, but it's been used for a while now. I would reccomend buying a new Li-Ion batery if you absolutely need long battery life.

Stilleto 2 keeps shutting down


It may be a problem with the power switch, I too had this problem. It seems like the power switch is stuck in "down" position as if you were holding it. I remove my battery cover (along with the battery) and gently jiggle the switch up and down to "loosen" whatever may be sticking it in place and it seems to work. I have encountered this problem several times. I did not send it out for repair. It works fine for me (knock on wood).

I accidentally washed my sirius stilleto 100. Is


If this is a recent (1 or 2 days ago), there is a possible solution that might work. This also works with many cellphones. As you should know, the Stiletto 100 has a removable battery. seperate the battery from the Sirius Player. Get a tupperware bowl and fill it about halfway or so with dry rice. Place Battery and player in the rice and completely cover with the rice. Leave Battery and player in rice for 24-48 hours. After this time period, replace battery and start it up. If not working, give it another 24 hours. If after the extra 24 hours it still doesn't work, you may have damaged it beyond repair and you may have to consider buying a new one. If this event happened more then a few days ago, there may be ongoing damage to circuit boards and such and this damage may be irreversible. You should consider either taking in for repair or replacement. This is a better option if you have a no-questions-asked replacement plan. Some electronics stores have a service plan in which they will completely replace a damaged device, even if the damage was your fault and/or completely intentional. These plans aren't cheap, ranging anywhere from 20 bucks for cheaper devices to $100+ for more expensive devices, but should you damage your device for whatever reason, including acts of god, they will completely replace with no questions asked. Some stores don't even require you to have all the parts available, although some do, so you have to ask if you aren't sure. If you have the money, I would also recommend getting the plan for the replacement as well.
Here is a link to a video about how to dry out cellphones. This is the method I am talking about and it explains the process a tiny bit better. Site: http://www.switched.com/2007/08/15/how-to-save-a-wet-cell-phone/ 
I hope this information helps.

Can i use existing satelite antena on my audi


The antenna should plug into the Stilleto car kit if your Audi is equipped with Sirius already. Otherwise you will have to use another Sirius antenna.
