    I tried your previous solution.Disconnect all power, wait at least 1hr. press power button while plug in power supply. The screen flashed very quickly and went black again and will not turn on. Still radio not turning on at all.

Its cover must be revoved to inspect for any fuse blown and power supply output.
If warranty has not expired better take it to an authorized service shop.

If you can open the casing, check blown fuse or any related internal circuit components. Also please test the power cable itself

Hi,

Initially, pls try:

  • removing all the power connectors to simulate a reset and unit will revert to factory defaults. Let the connectors off for an hour or so. Thereafter, pls try again.
  • press on the power button when reconnecting the power connector.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,



    Your postback/comment that the "screen flashed very quickly" is significant. This is indicative that the battery is not getting charged which in turn could mean:


    • the lighter adapter is not providing +5VDC, pls recheck using a DVM. It may also be possible to be reading +5VDCV (but with no load) meaning their is voltage but goes down when plugged in. This is open the case when the cigarette lighter adapter has corrosion on either its tip or ground/body. You can also check for corrosion, loose connection in the internal fuse holder of the lighter adapter. Scrape the tips/terminals/connectors to ensure positive contacts;

    • the battery itself would need replacement;

    • the internal circuitry of the Delphi would need a looking over. It is receiving power (+5) but is not charging the battery;

    • firmware problem. normally would reset when internal battery is removed. Would require an in service repair if faulty.
    Would appreciate further updates.

Try plugging the power adapter directly into the bottom of the radio without using either base/cradle - wait a minute - then see if you get a battery indication.

Delphi Skyfi2 won't turn on anymore.


I have the Skyfi 2 with car cradles. I have had them for about 7-8 years. I bought two brand new power cords to use with the cradles so I could move the Skyfi 2 to different vehicles. Neither power cord will power up the Skyfi 2 when in the cradle. I contacted the company I bought them from and they sent me two more cords. These cords are brand new as well. They too do not power the unit. My original power cord still powers the unit but I am trying to eliminate having to move it to each vehicle. I then bought a complete unopened kit from ebay. Using the new kit parts only, my Skyfi 2 will not power up. Did they change the kit since I bought mine and now it is not compatible. Everything looks identical so it is driving me nuts. Any help is appreciated, Thanks!

The remote does not turn on the Delphi XM Xpress on car unit


This problem is caused due to the fact that xm has designed there radios to completely shut off all power with the unit therefore the unit once off will not be able to recieve information from the remote. This manufacturing defect was confirmed by the xm representative, they also explained that the company is currently planning to fix this issue on the new 2009 model xpress rc

Screen dark


I have 2 of these I got at a yard sale and both had the dim screen
problem.I took 1 apart and everything looked fine.Put it back
together and put it back on the cradle and still did not work TILL I
squeezed down on the connection to the cradle and the radio.It lit up fine.Same with the other one.Its the bottom connection in the
radio that is worn from taking it in and out of the cradle all the time.
My XM radio had the same problem but it was the power cord that
wore out from taking the radio out every night and it powered up eratically like it was shorting out.Try squeezing it down on the
cradle and see what happens.

New Delphi installation over older delphi car kit


Just installed the xpress RC in my Durango, replacing my SKYFi2. Both units are Delphi (all of the newer xpress RC's are made by Audiovox now, but Amazon sent me the Delphi made unit). Everything swapped out with the exception of the 12dc power cord. Had to use the one included in the new unit, plug size that goes in the new cradle for the RC is different. In the new unit I did get two "user guides" in Spanish and none in English (I wish America would adopt one friggin standard language. English) but other than that it was quick and painless.
