Radio/nav not booting

New to the forums and now a "proud" owner of an 07 sts v. bought it off a guy who just did not show it the respect it needed. So Im now in the process of fixing it up.
I replaced the battery yesterday and when I went to start it up the sts logo on the screen just cycles, and on the dic it is in Japanese. I havent had a chance to really mess with it other than disconnecting battery and checking the fuses. Has anyone else had a problem with this? Im hoping this is just a simple/cheap fix since i already have a to do list a mile long for this thing.

I've heard of this happening before with someone with a normal STS. I don't recall the fix off the top of my head. You may want to google search the STS side of things.
Yeah it looks like I'm going to just buy a new one. Sad day
You might be able to reflash the firmware as you have an 07 model and there was a firmware update for the radio.

Where are you located? (I have a tech2 and a copy of the firmware discs)
Might save you from buying a new one.

Also if you decide to get one from eBay make sure you get the correct part number. You can use the STS or STS-V nav unit (they are the same) but the steering wheel controls changed in 2008 so you'll need to get the right nav unit for the controls to work properly.
