Question about Delphi SKYFi3 XM Radio Receiver with Car Kit

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

My skyfi 3 powers up but will not get past the "Detecting SD Card" screen. This has happened several times but issue would resolve itself if I let the battery run down or if I removed and replaced the battery. This is not fixing the problem this time--any ideas?

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.

MY MEMORY CARD WILL NOT LOCK INTO PLACE WHEN I PUSH IT INTO SD SLOT


  • Most likely the SD card is not being pushed in far enough to lock into place. You really need to use your fingernail to push it in past flush until you hear a clicking sound, at which point the card will lock into place.
  • Here are full instructions for insertion and removal of the SD card: Insert the memory card with the metal contacts going into the slot first and facing up at you. In other words the SD card label should be upside down when you insert it this way. You need to push the card in past flush to have the spring mechanism lock the card into place. To get the card out of the slot, push the card in past flush and then the spring mechanism will release it. You will hear a click when the card locks into place or is released from the slot.

    My SkyFi R 1.18 does the same thing but the solution here doesn't


    If it freezes, you have to push the volume UP button and Power button to 'reset' the unit.
    go to the XM website and get the latest FIRMWARE update for the SkyFi3 and download that. Also, you CANNOT use an SD card larger than 2GB or you'll have problems too. So first, upload the new firmware (using the AC adapter plugged directly into the bottom of the radio) and the cable that they gave you to hook up to your computer and do the firmware update. Delphi customer service can walk you through this too. Good luck, you'll get it pretty soon.

    Sd card is not working


    Try cleaning the pins of SC Card with contact cleaner or alcohol if you prefer make sure its dry enough before inserting. If nothing happens try detecting it on PC Desktop with proper Card reader, backup files if you still can then reformat thE SD Card. Reinsert in your HTC G1 if successful reformat it again using your HTC G1 to acquire compatabilty on the device.. hope this help...

    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:

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