Question about Delphi SKYFi3 XM Radio Receiver
When i start up my SkyFi 3, IT only gets as far as the "Detecting SD Card." Even with a card in the reciever, it still does not detect it and does not move past that screen. Rebooting with the ModeButton and Volume up only brings me to the same screen and no farther.
I found the soloution to my problem on the "Shop Delphi" website. I had to do a hard reset described at this link:
It erased all memory in the Skifi and reset everything back to factory specs, but I have my radio back.

I called Delphi today and reported that my Skyfi3 had died. They told me to
- put the radio back in the charger and then
- press the + volume and mode button together for 3 second to reset the radio
and it worked. Now the radio is charging. I'll see what happens once it's fully charged.

I've found that if the radio is very cold, it won't reset no matter what you do. I place it in front of a heater vent to warm it up for a while and it makes it work properly after the reset is done. Now, I don't know if it will work in your case, but it's worth a try. I'm going back to my original Delphi XM2GO radio...never had any problems with that. I'll use the SkyFi3 as an oversized MP3 player.

I was able to get past the scanning SD and Checking media freezes. What I do in the car is put the radio into the cradle just far enough to get it power, then when it passes the first screen (past the version check at the bottom), and pulls up the MP3 song playing, I push it all the way in. Then, I cycle through the modes to get a clear broadcast through the FM modulator. Some times, the MP3 song takes about 10 seconds to come back up if you go back to this mode, but it eventually plays. A pain in the neck to do some times, but it works.
