Firestore fs-4 , solid blue screen

My FS 4 worked fine one minute, now it has a solid blue screen, fans are always on full blast and it no longer recognizes the off button or any other button. You must pull the battery to kill it.. Any ideas? Thankyou

SOURCE: Firestore FS-4 does not show up when connected

I own three FS-4 and one of them has the same problem. Two of them connect no problem. The third one says the connection is successful but windows doesn't recognize it. After playing around a bit it appears that I am not getting a good connection with the 6 pin firewire output on the Firestore. I find that with repeated attempts and carefully holding the cable in various positions, I eventually get it (reminds me of analog TV antennas when you have to be in just the right position to get a channel in clearly). The good news is, once it is recognized, it stays recognized until the need for the next download.

So for my unit, I think I simply have a bad jack. Hope this helps.

I had format my Fs-4 Pro HD, and I need that


Hello

My apologies if this message finds you long after posting this problem , but I am currently working through a backlog of problems that never got answered and hopefully this info can still be of use if not now possibly in future.

Please download Disc Digger HERE. This is a free tool you can use that works very well and there is no installation required, just run the program once you downloaded it.

Once you have connected the memory disk / hdd to the computer , run the program.

On the program , select the dig deep option for accidentally deleted files or dig deeper for a formatted drive. Then select the disk you want to do the recovery on and run the program.

The data will be displayed and you can recover it from there. This will only work if the card has not been used since the data was lost. Save the files to a location on the computer hard drive and not back to the disk it is recovering from as this will overwrite the other pictures that still needs to be recovered.

Some of the properties of the files may become lost in the recovery but the pictures should be fine.

You will also only be able to recover certain file types using this method.

Feel free to ask if you need more assistance.

Kind Regards
Andrea

Unit re-powers after being turned off. Only removing the battery gets it to shut down without re-powering.


When it repowers,is it because when you hold the unit,it repowers? Then once it shuts down put the unit down.

Firewire 4 pin connection is npt reliable with my firestore fs 100. Can I fix this myself?


Hello there!! I think that you mean that the firewire connections is faulty with alot of errors during rec.This is caused by many movements in the cable and so the connector after a while gets loosen. I mean the 4 pins inside it. Therefore you should replace the 4p connector .You need to have experience in replacing connectors like this,not so easy though. Another solution for this kind of problem is to put some kind of glue around it so when it gets solid no more movements will happen again, but this is not the real solution.

Printer S4M only prints the code in stead of the label


Hello,

I have just tested this code in my printer and it works fine.
Make sure that your S4M is set to understand ZPL code and is not on dump mode.

Perhaps performing a full reset on it will cure the problem.

Firestore FS-4


Try a factory reset - it will probably fix the problems you're seeing. These are the instructions I got from Focus Enhancements: FACTORY RESET
a. With the Firestore powered OFF.
b. REMOVE the “battery” and connect the “AC Adaptor”.
c. Press and HOLD down the "ON” and “OFF” buttons for 15' seconds, then release just the “ON” Button.
d. Count to five (5) then release the “OFF” button.
e. The Firestore should be powering back up to the home screen.
(It takes the firestores settings back to the normal setup. This "will not" erase any current footage on the drive) (You may have to re-do current update/upgrade version)
