Have a Onkyo TX-RZ710. Fail to do firmware update. Try to do using USB, now Recovery:NET display. Dont know what to do?


Hello, I am sorry for your issue. The update may have stopped due to a power loss or another reason. The receiver needs to be sent to a service center. I have included a link below to search for a center. Thank you, Onkyo USA.

how do I get into the network and firmware menu?


Try the following

Via Net
Is it reasonable to assume your router requires password / ssid to secure internet access ?
Due to age of this device,
(1) Lower / disable current router security settings
OR
(2) connect device directly to modem. ( softest, easiest way )
This may require you to disconnect modem from router, reset your modem then connect cable direct between modem and DTR 40.1 device.
When completed, the Modem ( and Router ) may need be reset, prior to re-connecting network

Firmware update information link ( from manual )
http://filedepot.onkyousa.com/Files/own_manuals/Firmware_Update_for_the_DTR50_1_40_1_DHC40_1_100110.pdf
Step 3:
Go to "7-6. Firmware Update" menu.
Note that the Firmware Update option will be grayed out
for 30 seconds after AV receiver/controller is turned on.
Please wait
( system attempts internet link for approximately 30 seconds ? )

firmware update fail on night owl fs84500


Same here. Updated firmware system rebooted and locked on the Night Owl screen. Mine is the FS-8500.( DVR model FS-500 ). Anybody find a fix to the issue? I believe the firmware is in the motherboard. Anyway to hook to PC and "push / force" the firmware into the DVR. Or some tyoe of master reset. Or is this thing bricked for good.

If it cant be fixed, do you know where I can get a new motherboard with firmware installed. Tried talking to tech support but am fighting with them over the issue. Pretty freaking useless over there.

Problem Appear After Update Interrupted Triton 400


You will need to send it to your place of purchase or send it to a authorised Magellan Dealer. This is due to that you corrupted the file during the firmware update process

Keeps Freezing


Welcome to the world of Microsoft Windows Updates - late 2007-early 2008. Ever since the mid-Novemebr Windows Updates, there have a been a rash of problems with players that worked just fine previously. The protocol before was that every mp3 player was an MSD or Mass-Storage Device. Now the protocol is that most players have to be a MTP or media transfer protocol device.

Try resetting the device by inserting a small #1 paperclip into the reset hole. Hold it in for a good 15 to 20 seconds - the player will shut off and then power up again.

When you say that the firmware upgrade failed, did it fail to upgrade the firmware, or did the firmware upgrade fail to resolve the freezing issue? I know for a fact that the firmware upgrade is good on the website.

As far as the computer not recognizing the device, I have often found that restarting the computer rather than the player will resolve the issue. In fact, I had more trouble with my Rio back in 2005 than I do now. In those early days, I was always restarting my computer over and over to get it to read.

Let me know if you have continued problems.
