I had the same problem immediately after a main power outage to our house. I am using the home kit with the RoadyXT. When the power came back on, the Roady XT would show XM Satellite Radio on the display with no backlight. None of the buttons worked. I unplugged the power adapter numerous times with no change. Several times I had to use the remote to get the XM Satellite Radio message to show up as the on button would not work on the Roady. Other times the message appeared without pressing any buttons.
I had a second Roady XT that was bundled with the home kit that I never used, so decided to retire the bad unit and switch to the new one. I plugged the new one into the home adapter cradle and it worked fine, so the power supply was O.K. I then tried the bad unit once more, and it immediately worked as if nothing had ever happened.
So... my advice, keep trying to plug and unplug the bad unit to the cradle. Maybe wait 5 minutes between tries as that is about how long I had the replacement unit on the cradle before re trying the bad unit that now works.

I had the same problem, the screen would only show XM Satellite Radio on it. Sometimes it would scroll across the bottom, sometimes the backlight would turn on but it never seemed to connect and it did this in the car and in the house so it wasn't the power source. I remembered a fix from an old modem that used to freeze on its logo screen and basically do the same thing.
Here's what I did: Plug it in and let it freeze. Unplug the power from the wall/lighter and then plug it back in quickly. Repeat this until it decides to start working. It's not exactly a great solution but it seems to work. Showing my age, but anyone else remember quickly turning on and off the power to your atari 2600 to get crazy results? Fun with solid state.
