TRY REMOVING THE BATTERY AND PLACING IN CAR DOCK. THE UNIT SHOULD POWER UP, IF NOT THE RADIO IS N/G. I RECIEVED THAT INFO FROM SIRIUS TECH SUPPORT

    I did that battery pull trick for a while and it has worked just fine. I have the bulging battery also. Until last night. It won't even turn on now.

I have a Toshiba Satellite A665-S6088. The last time I used it was last night and everything worked fine. It works with Windows 8.1, it has for a few months now, never had any problems until now. No...


Unplug the unit from ac power. Remove the battery. Wait a minute. Press and hold down the power button for 30 seconds. (Yes, I know, nothing will happen visible). Replace battery. Plug unit back in. Now try the power button and see if the unit resets. Sometimes this helps when all else fails especially with a computer which has "hung up" like yours. Let me know if this worked!

Won't power on


Have you tried plutting it in directly to the power source with out the battery? If this works, it may be that the battery is dead, you can try to jump it by putting the battery in after it has already been turned on. Or just replace the battery:

If it does not power on, it could be the power cord is bad:

Otherwise, the unit itself may just be dead.

Bought new battery about a month ago, everything until last week. Now my MyFi will not power up. What can I do?


Pull the MyFi from the base and plug the power cable directly into the bottom of the SkyFi radio - you should be able to power up with it plugged in directly, even without any battery. Give it a try and let me know.

Sounds like a bad battery. Try plugging DC adapter directly into the bottom of the unit and turn it on - does it still act-up? If so, bad radio; if it works with adapter only, then battery and charging issue.

Stiletto 2: Device works, but no radio


I have seen the same problem. If I remove the battery and then reinsert it, the radio re-initializes and works fine. For some reason it appears that the Satellite reception gets disabled. Taking the battery out and in seems to reboot the radio.

XM radio express blank screen


I had the same problem with my Pioneer Inno Gex-Inno2BK XM radio receiver. One evening while leaving work, I gently took it out of the cradle & the screen suddenly went completely blank & all white. I could still hear music but there was no screen visible. Solution is this: (1) Gently remove the back cover which covers the battery. (2) Gently remove the dark blue square battery which is only about 1 inch (width) by 3/4 inch (height) by 1/4 of an inch in thickness. I removed mine by holding the receiver upside down & gently shaking the battery with one hand until the battery came out into my other hand. After about 4 or 5 gently shakes, it came out. (3) Wait about 15 seconds. (4) Place battery back into XM radio receiver being careful to line the copper power receptable on the battery with a corresponding surface inside the receiver. Each copper area is only about 1/10 of an inch by 1/10 of an inch. Use this as a guide when putting the battery back in to make sure it's lined up properly. (5) Gently slide the cover back in place & let it snap into place. (6) Turn receiver back on by pushing power button like normal. (7) XM receiver should boot up with a full display just like new. All recorded songs are still in place. Nothing has been lost. Problem solved. Root cause of problem is probably some type of boot-up issue with the receiver in which the battery (i.e., the power supply) just happened to be slightly ajar...which also persisted even when placing the receiver back in the cradle until the above steps were taken. The steps above worked beautifully for me...Hope it works for you as well! Have A Great Day...Tom Armstrong

Sirius Stiletto 2 Problem


That's one of several problems my Stiletto 2 has. The only solution I've found is to "reboot" the unit. You'll have to remove the unit from the cradle, pop the back off, and remove the battery for a few seconds. Then put everything back together and power it up. It will take a minute or two, but once it reboots it should be fine.

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!

Called service and they asked if I had a remote close to the unit, I did and they suggested that the battery was low on the remote possibly. I took the batt out of the remote and several hours now with no channel changes or shutting off. the second thing was to make sure that the power adapter was giving steady current.
