I think so. yes.

IT sounds like the booting may be corrupt.

I hate to be that guy but have you taken the battery out and let it sit for a few minutes and then tried the recovery. Also, take out your installed memory card, if you have one.

I don't honestly know. I had to do a recovery once and it took care of my issue.

IF anyone knows, they are on this board.

also no memory card. and sirius is absolutely no help.. i was wondering if there was a low level format or program that i could totally wipe the programming and reinstall the os.

I know sirius is no help.

let's be clear==when you say you've done the recovery, you are referring to the official "DEVICE RECOVERY" program that came on a disc with the SL2, right?

That has usually worked for most people. There haven't been too many bricked SL2's that I know of.

IF the device recovery program isn't working, then I'm not sure what to do.
