Problem getting the radio to work after changing battery in car :-(

Hi there,

I just changed the battery in my car....and now I need to reset my radio with a pin number...nissan have given me the number...but unfortunately I cant enter it as it's showing an "err" (error) on the lcd screen ...they told me to leave the car running for an hour or so and it would change back to "code" on the screen then I can input the pin number...but I left the car running for 2.5 hours and it DIDN'T change back :( any help would be appreciated
the radio is the one that came with the car no bran model...

Usually only the radio needs to be powered up...NOT the engine running . Be sure all accessories are off so as to not run battery down. You might try disconnecting battery again & hold positive connection to ground for 30 seconds .

Xpress RC Not turning on


Hi,

Initially, pls try:
  • removing all the power connectors to simulate a reset and unit will revert to factory defaults. Let the connectors off for an hour or so. Thereafter, pls try again.
  • press on the power button when reconnecting the power connector.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Hi

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.
What you need to do is simultaneously hold the VOLUME UP button as well as the MODE button. This will reset the unit.
Let us know if you have something more to know else accept the suggestion.
Thank You for contacting Fixya.com

My delphi xm is frozen


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!

Clarion SIRIUS Radio Receiver - Not Receiving All Subscribed Channels


My DX445 does the same thing. Here's my method for fixing it, it should work for any similar Clarion receiver:

1. If possible, make sure the radio is turned off when disconnecting the battery. If the radio turns itself on when the vehicle is restarted (for example after jump starting or battery disconnect for a few seconds only), turn the radio off.

2. Disconnect the battery by removing the negative battery cable from the battery. Leave it disconnected.

NOTE: Car batteries can be dangerous things. If you're unsure how to do this safely, get an experiences mechanic to help you.

3. Reset the radio. On my radio this is done by removing the faceplated, and pressing a tiny button for 30 seconds. Your radio may be different.

4. After waiting at least 20 minutes, reconnect the battery.

5. My radio displayes 'System Check -- Press Power'. After pressing the power button, the display reverts to the clock.

6. Turn on the radio. It should work fine on the broadcast bands.

7. Select 'Sirius'. The radio should display 'Updating'. Don't touch anything until the radio finishes its update phase. When it's done, it should tune to Sirius channel 1 and play as normal.

8. This should restore normal tuning. reset your presets and preferences.

What seems to happen is that the radio gets stuck in a 'Category Select' condition, but not all the categories will load, and manual tuning will not allow, say, Radio Classics to play when the radio is stuck in Pop mode.

On occasion (maybe 1 time out of 10), the radio hangs while doing the 'updating' in Sirius mode. If this happens, just shut off the radio and start over. I've never had to do the brute force reset more than twice since I stumbled on this method.
