Question about Delphi SKYFi3 XM Radio Receiver
The screen is frozen on checking media DELPHI XM
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. 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.

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?

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.

SOURCE: my delphi xm is frozen
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.
