    I tried the reset button and it didn't work. Unfortunately I did not copy the files before the upgrade.
    Does anyone have the original files for the Roadmate 1400 they can send me?

Try the hard reset, if you tried that,did you happen to copy your files off the 1400 before the upgrade?

I have a second hand 1400 that likes to fail booting once in a while, this time I thought I would jot it down so others would know and maybe I can find if I forget. Using power just got boot screen to come up then die out, USB same thing. I think my problem is not enough power left in battery to do anything with. 3 second and 15 second resets didn't work, so I set gps down with a pen lodged in the reset hole so it was always resetting, left it like that for well over 15 seconds and then after a while it worked fine. I did this because it seemed with reset button depressed power was cut off and maybe since I had the charger plugged in I was boosting the batteries enough to have a successful boot. It's flipping off and trying to reboot was probably a problem with not enough power in battery.

How to upgrade firmware
Only Windows support:
1. If you haven't already, download the firmware file and extract the zip
file.
2. Connect the drive to the secondary IDE channel as a master drive with
no other devices connected to that channel (Ignore if it's an SATA drive).
Start Windows and verify it can recognize the drive.
3. Close all other programs including: screen saver, and /or antivirus.
Do not open any programs or start any system functions during the

4. Open the firmware program RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR (right clock run as admin).
5. Click the update button and do not touch or interfere with the drive
while the firmware is being upgraded. IMPORTANT - DO NOT INTERFERE WITH
THE DRIVE DURING THIS PROCESS. If an error occurs during the upgrade
process, or the upgrade process is cancelled during this process, damage
to the drive can occur.
6. When the upgrade is complete the screen should say FIRMWARE UPDATE SUCCESSFUL. Re-boot your PC.

Can i upgrade my roadmate 1200 to include Portugal?


I also have a RoadMate 1200 and I wanted to update my map as well.

After extensive research (and periodically checking up on this every couple of months), I have found that the RoadMate series devices do not allow for any official map upgrades.

There have been reports of successful third party software installations on the RoadMate. Installing a third party software program (or "firmware") would completely change the menu on your GPS. It would be like installing Windows Vista on an iMAC. If it is possible to run an alternative firmware on the RoadMate, then it would be quite possible to download a usable map of Portugal. I have not seen any evidence of this yet. When I do I will let you know! :)

Also, an alternative firmware installation should only be done by an expert computer user. And an expert user knows that alternative firmware will void the warranty and that alternative firmware is VERY risky.

Sorry,
Steve

Won't boot up and not recognised when connected to PC


MANUAL FIRMWARE UPGRADE PROCEDURE:
During the upgrading of the firmware, if you turn off the power of M800, either by manually switching off the power or removal of the battery, the file system of M800 will be damaged, which will lead to booting failure problem. When this happens, you will not be able to turn on M800. Booting failure problem can be easily repaired by “manual firmware upgrade”. The procedures for manual firmware upgrade are as follows:

1. After firmware upgrade, only the blue LED under LCD is on, but LCD display is not turned on, please proceed manual firmware upgrade.
2. Remove the battery.
3. Put the battery back into the player again.
* Notice ! : Do not turn on the power.
4. Connect the player to your PC.
* Notice ! : Do not turn on the power.
5. While pressing the volume down button, power on the player.
6. Now PC should recognize M800 as one of its hard disks.
7. Download the latest firmware file into the root folder of the player.
8. Disconnect the player from your PC.
9. The blue light LED under the LCD display will flicker.
10. Wait for about one minute, blue LED is off. Turn on the player.
The manual firmware upgrade is now completed.

Laserjet 4250dtn Duplex problem


How is the printer connected.

Please upgrade the firmware of the printer.
Please upgrade the firmware of the printer:
1. Download the firmware file from the following website and extract it.
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=412144&prodNameId=412158&swEnvOID=54&swLang=8&mode=2&taskId=135&swItem=lj-25065-13
Expecting that the printer is connected over the network:
=============================================
Remote firmware update by using FTP through a browser
Complete the following steps to update the product firmware by using file transfer protocol (FTP) through a browser.
NOTE: The following instructions can be used on Windows or Macintosh operating systems.
Take note of the TCP/IP address on the EIO-Jetdirect page. The EIO-Jetdirect page is the second page of the configuration page printout.
Open a browser window.
In the address line of the browser, type ftp://<IPADDRESS>, where <IPADDRESS> is the TCP/IP address of the product. For example, if the TCP/IP address is 192.168.0.90, type FTP://192.168.0.90.
Locate the downloaded .RFU file for the product.
Drag and drop the .RFU file onto the PORT1 icon in the browser window.
NOTE: The product automatically restarts the firmware to activate the update. At the end of the update process, the Ready message appears on the control panel.

The following describes how to upgrade firmware in the LaserJet 2400, P3005 and 5200 Series Printers using a USB connection only.
To send the firmware upgrade via USB, you will need to know the name of the computer the printer is connected to, and the printer will need to be shared.
=============================================
=============================================
To find out the name of your computer:
Click the Start button, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, then choose System Information.

Write down this name as it will be needed later.
To share the connected printer:
Click the Start button, Settings , then choose Printers ("Printers and Faxes" on WinXP).
Right click on the printer you need to send the upgrade to and then choose Sharing.
On WinXP, if you encounter the following link "If you understand the security risks but want to share printers without running the wizard, click here.", click the link.
Select "Just enable printer sharing" and click OK .
Select Shared As: ("Share this printer" on WinXP) and type a name for the share.
Click Apply and write down the share name as it will be needed later.
To send the firmware upgrade using a USB connection:
Go to a DOS Command Prompt and locate the directory where you saved the firmware file. (To open a Command Prompt inWindows 2000 or XP, go to the Start button, then choose run, then type CMD and hit Enter, in Windows 98 or ME, go to the Start button, Programs, Accessories, then choose MSDOS Prompt). This will bring up a small black screen as displayed below:
If connected to a USB port, Type: copy /b filename \computer nameshare name (for example, copy /b ozfw.rfu \computer1printer).
Press ENTER .
The control panel displays receiving upgrade followed by performing upgrade . The download may take several minutes.
The control panel displays processing job .
The download is complete when the printer reboots and "READY" message is displayed on the control panel.
