Default My Stiletto is having an S50 kind of day

So I powered on my Stiletto and tried to listen to something in my Library. After going in and selecting an artist or shuffle all, if flips back out to the home menu, freezes, and then displays a "restarting" message.

Trying to listen to a Radio Replay results in the same behavior.

I tried this a couple times and went through a couple resets, even after taking the battery out and then replacing it.

So I powered it back on and tried to listen via the Internet, and saw that it had lost all three of the WiFi networks I had setup. So I renetered the one for the location I'm in at the moment, and was able to connect OK.

This room has a metallic coating on the windows, so no luck testing the Sat reception, but I think it would work if I stepped outside.

So I fired up MSS on the computer and it DOESN'T indicate any of the MP3 and WMA songs I had on the Stiletto from my home PC.

It does show all of the Sirius content I loved onto the device(but can't listen to at the moment)

BTW this unit does have the latest software on it.

Any ideas to try, short of the recovery procedure?

Ed

Well if it really is having a s50 kind of day, the only fix would be a recovery. I've had the restarting error once, but only once and it just restarted all by itself. None of the other issues.

If it is really behaving wierd, you just may have a bad unit. A few people on the SBS have had bad units and ended up replacing it. I must say far less than those complaints I remember from s50 users.

I'd say if after you do the recovery, it still is acting weird return it and get another.

I did the recovery last night, and it went exactly like the sticky said at the top of the forum. I did get the newest zap with it. I'm going to try to get some radio replays stored before my airplane flights home at the end of the week.

I got the CC plan when I bought it, so I agree, if problems continue, I'll do a swap out.
