Question New S50.. worked yesterday. Software update and now dead

Sorry my first post is a question, but I've been reading the backstage blog since I got my starmate last year. I finally bought a brand new s50 off ebay last week...

It worked fine and I activated it with no problem. I installed the sirius music software on my pc and then updated the s50... and bam..

It turns on and the sirius logo comes up and then it turns itself off. I've tried the 3 finger salute. I've tried removing the battery. I've tried the unit hooked up to usb, car dock and all with the same results. I haven't even used it for 15 minutes and it's dead.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. In fact, I am a part time adult webmaster so maybe if someone can give me the magic potion to getting my radio fixed, I can return the favor with a password or something



I'm really desperate to get the thing fixed. It's been the one bright spot to a horrible month to get my new s50. In the last few weeks my 50" HDTV died, my xbox 360 shit the bed and my 200 dollar gaming router died too.. now if this brand new s50 follows suit, I will have to give up on anything electronic and maybe move to Amish country.

Hey man, it looks like Im in the same boat you are.. I just recieved my unit brand new off of ebay today, and noticed that the firmware was out of date. I updated, but after it restarts I get the sirius logo for a few seconds, then it just shuts down. Even the 3 finger salute failed..

Any help would be greatly appriciated!

"firmware is out of date"

No it isn't. On the S50 if it turns on and works, LEAVE IT ALONE.

There are some downloads on here that MIGHT help but not too sure where they can be found. Someone saved the old firmware updates I THINK.
