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.

This page explains how to download and install the firmware update for the VPC-HD2000.
  • This firmware is for the VPC-HD2000 only. Please do not install it on another model.
  • By installing this firmware Greek, Swedish and Finnish will be added as new menu languages. (Please notice that for this purpose the menu languages Traditional Chinese, Simple Chinese and Korean will be deleted!)

  • Before updating the firmware, please read through the explanations on this page.
  • Make sure to update the firmware in the order shown below.
  • The camera might not boot up properly if its power is turned off during the firmware-updating procedure.

Requirements:
  • SD memory card (henceforth referred to as "card") with capacity over 8 MB.
  • Fully charged lithium ion battery.
  • Additionally, you need one of the items listed below:
    (i) A SD memory card reader (henceforth referred to as "card reader")

    The firmware file should be saved in a location where you can easily find it again later (e.g. save it on desktop of your computer).


Step I.3: Copy the file "s313n081.bin" to the formatted card (from step I.1):

The method of operation differs depending on whether you use a card reader (i) or a dedicated USB cable (ii).
(i) When you copy the downloaded files with a card reader: (1) Put the formatted card from step I.1 in the card reader. (2) Copy the "s313n081.bin" file created on your hard disk in step I.2 to the root directory of the card.

When you connect to your PC, please make sure the camera's USB interface is set to "Card Reader". (Please refer to "Setting the Connection Mode" on pages 7 to 8 of the Instruction Manual in the Xacti Software CD 1.0) Please make sure the camera is recognized as a removable disc. (2) Put the formatted card (from step I.1) in the camera and then copy the "s313n081.bin"-file created on your hard disk (in step I.2) to the root directory of the card.

Is it normal that when you r updating the firmware of it,much of time is needed?..the MB is increasing while updating


Hi,
Usually firmware update takes much time depending on the speed of the Internet connection which you have.
First nokia updater have to be downloaded and when you try updating your mobile firmware then the nokia updator downloads the necessary update files from internet which takes again some time. After the firmware download then actual firmware updation happens. This will take some minutes.
Please note that interruption in firmware update may make your mobile unusable. Then you have to make a service call if anything happens like that. so perform firmware update with a high speed Internet connection and have UPS for your system.
I hope this is helpful to you.
Thanks

I have the same problem. Has anyone found a solution? I have an HP Notebook dv6700 with a Pioneer DVDRW [DVR-K17B ATA Device]. For the past few months I haven't been able to burn anything to disc. I can't find any firmware updates online. I'm not sure if I need to buy a new drive?

Thank you in advance for any feedback.

Troubles Transferring, now power


You are describing a software and firmware update.
The software update should not have any effect on the camera start-up, but the firmware update could.
Please check to see if there were any instructions sent with the firmware files (like a Read Me file or release notes), which might give you special instructions for properly loading the firmware. Some manufacturers require that you hold down certain buttons on the device when power cycling to load the firmware.
Also ALWAYS be sure to have newly charged batteries of the right type, because a power failure in the middle of a firmware upgrade can ruin a device, requiring service.
Go to their web site to get details about the firmware update, if you are sure you did infact update firmware. Also, their tech support should be able to assist you with additional issues if their recent release is problematice for any reason.
Good luck.
