Default Sirius s50 boot up problem

I recently updated the firmware to my s50 to 4.1 (whatever the latest version that mysiriusstudio has access to.)

Now when I plug my s50 into the home dock, it displays the sirius startup screen for 3-5 minutes, then goes black.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Have you tryed looking in the S50 section on this forum?

Just about every S50 problem is discussed there.

You might need to do a 3 finger reset. See the S50 section for instructions.

Boot up problems are typically fixed with a Channel Reset. If you cannot get to the main screen then the only thing to try is to remove the battery and reset and try again. If that does not work, then last I would try the 3 finger salute.

Other than that, your unit is toast. I'm wondering about your battery. Is it charged? Make sure you have a completely charged battery before you try the 3 finger salute.

If that does not work it's time to call support. That phone number is in the beginning of the document.

Good Luck.
