Default ISSUE: s50 reset

My s50 locked up several days ago. After deleting 3 stern shows on its own, it now shows the memory is 100% full, so no more recordings are possible. When I attempted to connect it to my PC to download the software upgrade, it cannot be recognized. This seems to have been a common problem with others. I called Sirius and was told a technician would have to call me back for the magic reset procedure. Its been six days, and I still have not gotten a call. Does anyone know the fabled 3 finger reset? If so, please post, I'm sure I'm not the only one waiting for the call back...

Sorry to hear about your situation. It is outrageous that you've waited 6 days and have yet to get a return call. This is a situation that SIRIUS clearly needs to address ASAP. You aren't the first to make this complaint.

In regards to the 3 finger reset, we will not allow that procedure to be posted on the forum. We have had end users that have attempted this procedure and unless you know what you are doing specifically you can actually brick your unit. So while I know you have tried to do it through the process, I have no other options to offer you. If you can still swap it out with the retailer you may consider that.

I know we've had posters that have been sending this proecedure out to others via PM, but it is without our permission and if you decide to go that route you do so at your own risk.

Default s50 gone bad

I have the same exact problems - if you get any closer to a solution please post and I will do likewise.
