I downloaded the updated firmware, saved it to my computer. Hooked up the skyfi3 to the usb port and took the power cord from the home dock and plugged it directly in to the unit. Held down the volume up and mode button, then as soon as it got to the "scanning media" screen I hit the up arrow, then the down arrow, then the up arrow again.

Motherboard won't boot past cmos


you are pretty much right it may be a corrupt bios, however before we come to a conclusion try isolating both Seagate Barracuda 7200 rpm 80gig ide hard drive and optical drive only and then see if it at least goes past the bios screen, if yes then the bios is ok and just needs to be resetted to defaults. dont expect it to load windows even if it goes past bios check as hard disk which helps to boot to windows would be removed. also in case if you are using 2 ram slots try connecting only 1 ram chip in 1 slot and then see if it goes past the bios test screen. do reply with results. Good luck.

I have a 37LG505H-UB LG LCD TV and when I watch it, it all of a sudden starts scanning for channels on the RF input even though I have it hooked to HDMI on the STB. It won't stop and when I turn it of


Main system control memory IC fault. This is a very small IC; have 8 solder terminals, and can be located very near to the main system control-chroma IC. Check and replace it. Be sure to replace it with the same number printed on it; in all respect. Otherwise, it won't go. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ Before replacing it, try a reset to this set, and then check.
There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here.

I have repeatedly used the standard reboot for Skyfi3 and it will not work. There is supposed to be another high reboot that can be done.. Does anyone know it? Tyhe unit will not get out of scanning media...

Powers up but locks up on "detectin sd card" screen


A very common problem on the SkyFi3! Press the volume UP and the Power button at the same time and it will finally go off. Go to the Delphi/XM website and upload/download the latest FIRMWARE and upgrade it. Then, call the 800 phone number for Delphi and they will tell you a secret master reset you have to do once or twice, and it will cut down the number of lockups during checking media by quite a bit. Also, do not use a Micro SD card larger than 2MB as well. Good luck, and let me know how it goes for you.

I am getting a checking media message repeatedly. i did a soft reset by holding up volume and mode key. then a hard reset by touching up arrow then down arrow immedaitely after soft reset. unit still comes...


This is the unit from h**l. I had the same problem. First, make sure you have the latest FIRMWARE update loaded. Next, call Delphi tech support on the radio and they'll have you do the hard reset. Also, you cannot use more than a 2GB micro Memory Card. An 8GB will cause a media problem. Do you get the check media with no card in?

My unit starts up and just says at top "Checking Media" can not use any buttons, just frozen!


Take the sd card out, reboot by holding volume up and menu at the same time for 5 secs, wait for it to fully boot into the music, then put the sd card back in.

When i plug my xm player in it gets stuck on media


Mine got stuck like that too. For a while it was possible to hold down the volume button and the mode button at the same time and it would unlock. But now that doesn't work. The Delphi tech support guy said I need to do a firmware update, but that isn't working either.

Powering up Delphi SkyFi 3


I found the soloution to my problem on the "Shop Delphi" website. I had to do a hard reset described at this link:

http://www.shopdelphi.com/contact/ce/s_pf/#2516

It erased all memory in the Skifi and reset everything back to factory specs, but I have my radio back.

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!

When the radio locks up on the Checking Media page you hold the + button to the volume and the MODE button wait for 3 seconds and it will turn off...  Thanks to Delphi for this assistance!!  Chris K.
