    That's how the users guide tells you to fix the problem.

    I have the same problem. Display is stuck at "Scanning Media". Won't go past 22.30 on bottom of screen. Reset button (Volume and Mode buttons) just resets it and brings it back to the same screen. I've left it on until the battery has run down, plugged it into the base unit and it powers back up to the same screen. I CANNOT get past this screen.

    This is third xm receiver that I have had in the last year and 3 months. The first two were another model so I upgraded to the skyfi 3. I have found it to be more susceptible to static, and like the other posts, it freezes up. Buttons do not seem to be too responsive. Why couldn't there have just been a power on/off button?



    One poster mentioned that his skyfi freezes up daily. The company should replace ALL defective units. I'm to the point of cancelling my xm subscription.

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!

To Reset Skifi3
- put radio in charger then
- press +volume key and mode button at the same time for 3 seconds then release

this revived my radio and I am able to charge the battery now.

I have the same problem as kathy, I tried her solution but did not work for me,

is this a factory problem, and why isn't Delphi coming up with a fix to this problem?

Posted on Oct 14, 2008

I pressed the volume + and mode/power button simutaneously and this seemed to reset the unit and allowed the download to progress and allow the unit to power off

The problem mostly happens when the receiver is in the dock. If it won't let you past the screen, turn it on without the unit in the dock, let it boot, then put it in the dock. You may have to change the display orientation afterwards but it should work.

Hold the up volume button and the mode button at the same time. I have to do it almost every day. This is only a problem when using the car kit. No problem at all when using with portable kit or home kit.

I have an older model radio.. Delphi Roady 2.. gets powe to the docking station to the removalable unit but screen display will not light up.. any suggestions???


Probably the cheapest solution is to buy a used Roady2 off online bidding service like ebay and then pay the $15 to XM to switch radios. Delphi no longer makes Roady2. Probably could not repair for a cheap as you can buy used radios (around $25).

Skyfi3 freezes up on checking media


common problem! Press the volume UP and the Power button at the same time and it will 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 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.

Delphi Roady XT Quit Working


Chances are it's not picking up the XM signal. First, contact XM to resend your setup. if that doesn't work check your antenna connections.
