Bought a new SD card, formatted it, downloaded new firmware 1.80, tried a firmware update: no changeI tried to do an update for the 1st time starting from my existing 1.76 firmware to do a 1.80 firmware.
Everything went smoothly until I had to press twice the "enter" key to start the firmware update. I pushed instead twice the Power ON/OFF key by mistake...I backpedalled by pressing twice the "enter" key but nothing changed and the power indicator LED stopped blinking and remained green without blinking anymore. I waited 30 minutes just in case an update would start : nothing but the usual black screen with the red border mentioning "Realiser A16 firmware update manager". No key worked : power on/off, C, etc. I had to pull the wall plug to turn it off.
I restarted the process and duly typed twice "enter" this time but what showed next was another screen :
Firmware installation failed
uSD firmware file invalid
Place valid firmware file on uSD
I pushed the cancel key to stop the firmware process and turned the A16 off. Thinking it might have been the SD card, I formatted the SD again to empty it and downloaded again the 1.80 firmware from the Smyth site. No luck, same message.
Two hours later, I tried it again with the same above-mentioned message showing on the screen.
I checked my Updates/About in the Menu/System and my firmware shows as usual the 1.76 firmware.
I cannot complain, I made a mistake...any ideas?
Just did a factory reset and tried a firmware update afterwards : no change
I will keep you posted.
