I pried the back cover off with a thin blade knife removed the battery and replaced it 30 sec later.
This will also cure the hang problem, my volume up button was the first one to stop working as I used it so often.

When using headset with skyfy3 display says check antenna .


Are you using the special Delphi headphone with the built=in antenna? There is NO antenna built into the SkyFi3 like the MyFi - you must have the special headphones with the antenna built in. okay?

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...


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. This got the unit running and I was able to upgrade the firmware. It took two or three times to work, but eventually worked like a charm.

Problem with the Delphi SKYFi3 XM Radio Receiver UNIT LOCKED UP WILL NOT COME ON OR GO OFF


Common problem with SkyFi3 units. You have to press the Volume UP button and hold it while you press the POWER button; this will 'reboot' your radio, then you can try it again to get it to go off.
You will need to update your firmware on the radio using the baby USB cable and the unit plugged into your computer WITH the battery recharged FIRST. Also, go to the www. xmradio dot com website and download the SkyFi3 FIRMWARE update. Then you need to download the "firmware update" into your SkyFi3. If this doesn't fix your lockup problem, you need to call DELPHI customer support, and they can tell you one more 'master reset' method. After the firmware update, it might take 2 or 3 'restarts'. Again, press and hold the Volume UP and PWR at the same time to reset a 'locked-up' SkyFi3. Regards, John

My skyfi3 wont turn off. currently frozen on clasic vinyl with no sound


Try unplugging the power cable to force it to turn off. Wait for a minute or so, and then plug it back up. Try powering it back on- that should do it.

SKYFI3 WON'T TURN ON, PLUGGED INTO CAR AND WON'T TURN ON. PLUGGED INTO CELL CHARGER AND IT'S NOT FLASHING ON AND OFF


You need a special 5 volt 2 amp power supply for the unit, you cannot use your cellphone charger - not enough power.
