Why did you need the 3 Finger Reset?

I'm working on a paper to walk through the reformat process of the S50.
I'd like to put a section in it of why and when to do this?

Can I get people to add to the thread telling me what their issues were?
Did the 3 finger reset fix the issue?

If you have pictures of your unit with the issues or screen prints of the
issues send to me via email so I can include them in the doc.

Any other idea's would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Mike



PS If you are looking for how to do the 3 finger reset. Here is the link to the paper that describes it.

M S50 wont play back recorded content. I called tech support and they had me do something about getting s50main from the web to fix it. But that didn't work.

I would like the 3 finger reset to try and fix my s50.

S50 recorded content was not audible - it appeared to be playing the time of the song kept going up as it should but nthing was audible. MP3's played fine. S50 Tech Supoprt - not Sirius Tech Support - walked me through the 3 finger reset and that fixed my issue. I 've had other lockups since the 3 finger rest however. "INCOMPLETE SONG" was stuck on the display yet all the recorded songs played just fine.

I needed to do it after I loaded a firmware update..., I think I unplugged it to quick after I clicked the remove icon from My Sirius Studo. I could not get anything to work. A brick!!. When I plugged in to the pc I got this message.


When I unpluged it I got this...


It was pissed. You can probably read my comments here somewhere. The only way to turn it off was to pull the battery. I followed some directions I got here and did the 3 finger thingie.... After an hour of trying It finally worked.

I have been trouble free since.

Man...Do I love this thing now.

Den

ktm300den... The pictures in your avatar and message are causing a .net Passport wizard to popup on my screen, one for each instance. I didn't know what was going on, but an online search revealed that this happens when pictures are posted on message boards by msnusers accounts.

Is anyone else experiencing this? Anyone know of a way to disable this?

Default I needed the 3 finger reset because:

When I was fast forwarding my S-50 (with my Home Dock), my finger slipped and my S-50 went wacky. After that, it only worked in live play mode. Whenever I tried to record new material or play material previously recorded, it would shut off about a minute later. When I tried to hook it up to my computer, my computer would not read it because it kept shutting off. I had no choice but to do the 3 finger reset. As soon as it completed, my computer could read my S-50 again so I re-loaded the software and my S-50 has been working ever since (this happened about 5 weeks ago). My reset looked exactly like Me_Rubins picture. Good work rubin.

Default Why did you need the 3 Finger Reset?

Mine would hang at the Sirius logo when it was undocked and it would not allow you to look at any playlist/loved songs/shows/mp3 etc.

This fixed the issue and mine has been working perfectly since.....

My S50 stopped playing back recorded content after I received new channel logos and voice tags. I tried several techniques discussed on this forum including a new reformatting technique. All failed. When I finally tried the 3 finger reset to try and fix my s50 it worked.

I had a constant "Data Creation Please Wait..." message that would never go away, no matter how long I waited. It wouldn't turn off unless I took out the battery, then I'd get the same message again once I turned it back on. I couldn't get it to do the factory reset through MSS, so last night I did my first 3 finger reset. It seems to work fine now, I even have channel logos that I didn't have before. It played great last night and this morning and recorded Stern. This thing can be a pain to keep running, but I still love it.

I tried to change channel in the middle of a record session. Chose "change channel and save partial", then it locked up. I removed the battery to try and wake it back up, the I got "data creation" and "data error please restart". I lost all recorded content and the s50 wouldn't save recordings or keep it scheduled recordings.

Did the three finger and all is fine.

Thanks Mike.
