FTA - View Satellite Ultra receiver powered off during BIN loading

During the loading of the bin file, the FTA, VSUltra was indicating INSE in the display for over 30 seconds. The FTA was powered off. The FTA is not responding to power ON from the remote or from the power button of the FTA.

The switch on the back has been turned ON and OFF. Also the power has been disconnected from the FTA VSUltra. Both procedures have been tried and the FTA VSUltra does not respond. How does someone recover from this scenario?

    My problem is with a Sonicview 4000 FTA satellite receiver. After I reboot, the channel that should be playing displays for a second or two on the LED and then a single digit comes on the display and I get no signal. It does not respond to either the remote control or to the buttons (power, channel, etc.) on the unit itself. Fried motherboard or repairable?

Activation of keys on an FTAS receivers


Your query > "Instructions on how to install new keys and activate an FTA receiver using a 2GB Cruzer Micro Flash Drive with 3 smarth technology"

Generic responses:
1. depending on your FTA receiver (brand/model/version) (BlackBird, MultiStar, UltraStar, Pansat, Digiwave, Viewsat, Coolsat, Fortec, Ariza, Twinhan... or even clones) you would need to download the appropriate firmware/satellite keys using your PC & Internet connection;
2. links to firmware/satellite keys maybe available from your FTA receiver manufacturer's website or forums such as HashHU FTA
3. in your PC, unzip the downloaded firmware/satellite keys to a temporary folder;

If you are using a stand-alone hardware FTA box:
a. plug in your 2GB Cruzer Micro Flash Drive to one of your PC's USB port;
b. copy/paste the unzipped files in the root directory of the Flash Drive. Verify that you have the .bin or .pmg of whatever your FTA box is using;
c. remove flash drive from PC's USB port and insert into the USB port of the FTA receiver;
d. on the FTA box, using your remote, go to Menu, Settings or Sytem Information, keys, firmware or receiver Upgrade, select USB, select Flash, Save, Activate or Upgrade;
e. wait until the FTA box has uploaded to itself the new firmware/satellite keys;
f. reboot (power on/off).

If you are using PC-based FTA satellite receiver:
i. run your FTA receiver program;
ii. select for Tools/Options/Upgrade or Update;
iii. browse/direct to search in your temporary folder where downloaded files were unzipped;
iv. once found, click OK/Update/Upgrade;
v. in some brand/model/version, there is an auto upgrade/update feature which will download appropriate firmware/satellite keys if you are online.

Hope that the this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
