I have a Vizio Model E420VL and it gets into a state which the audio does not work (from HDMI input #1) and remote control processing in the unit also does not work. I had played around with the side...


hi,

It can be difficult to get things right on the first try. With that truism in mind, Vizio Incorporated includes USB ports on their televisions that you can use to load firmware updates onto the television. Vizio has released firmware updates only for certain television models, and the instructions for installing firmware updates vary slightly by model. To upgrade your television's firmware, you need to download and copy firmware drivers to a USB flash drive and then read and follow Vizio's specific installation instructions for your model.

1. Connect the USB flash drive to your computer


2. Click the "Start" button, and click the "My Computer" icon.
3. Right-click the flash drive, and click "Format" in the menu


4. Select "FAT32" in the drop-down menu, and click the "OK" button. Windows will format your USB flash drive with the FAT32 file system.


5. Open your Web browser, and navigate to the Vizio support Web site at www.vizio.com/support.

6. Click the "Select Your Product" drop-down menu, and select your model of Vizio television from the list. A new page will open that displays available downloads for your television


7. Click the "Firmware Update" link, and save the firmware update file to your computer.

8. Click the "Firmware Instructions" link, and read the instructions specific to your Vizio television model.

9. Right-click the file that you downloaded, click "Rename," and then rename the file to the exact name that is specified in the firmware instructions 10. Right-click the file, and click "Send to" > "E: USB Drive" or whichever drive letter corresponds to your flash drive. The firmware update file is copied to your USB drive 11. Right-click the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon on the right side of the Windows task bar, and eject the device from your computer

12. Disconnect the USB drive, and plug it in to your Vizio TV's USB port.


13. Follow the steps in the firmware instructions to install the firmware update to your television.



Only you can find is the problem with firmware by udating the frimware of your tv. ok

How to format my n6303 phone bec my phone is always hang


You cant do a full reset/format.
You can however re-install the firmware via the Nokia website free of charge.
This should fix any freezing/hanging issues.
You will need original Nokia datacable (the one supplied in the box with your phone when it was new)

Heres a link...........

Points to note:

1. You should back-up or save all personal stuff (photos, videos, audio clips etc) to the memory card, or even better to your pc
2. make sure you select the correct model on Nokia website (6303 or 6303i)

Garmin zumo 550 map update problem


  1. Make a backup of your Zumo by copying all the file to your computer.
  2. Using your PC and MapSource select all the maps then send them to a SD memory card need 2Gig or bigger card.
  3. Try to rename this file to gmapprom.img and replace the same named file in your zumo. (I haven't tried this personally, so if it fails, just replace this with your backup and all will be as it was.)
  4. If this fails, you can use the SD memory card in your zumo and it will use this map instead, but it will take longer to boot your zumo.

Bicu firmware update


You can check on copytechnet.com on how to get it. Heres what I know about it as a copier technician.

Ricoh provides the firmware upgrades to their technicians. The firmware has to be decrypted using a special program the runs about $300 from a company in Germany. Its a proprietary archive file that gets decrypted and put onto a pcmcia memory card. You can find them on EBAY. It has to be 64mb in order for the copier to read it. I tried using a compact flash memory card connected to a pcmcia card and I didn't have any luck using it. The utlility program can lock up the notebook computer as well if it isn't setup right. You can get a pcmcia card reader for a workstation as well. Ricoh used to make those for that particular reason.

What version is it at right now?

Software update lcd tv


The Philips 32PFL5522D does support firmware upgrades.

Only the digital board can be updated by the user. This is done by downloading the firmware on to a memory card (CF) and inserting into a PCMCIA adaptor. This is then inserted into the CI slot at the back of the TV.

The main TV would have to be updated by a Philips service agent using a COMPAIR device.

However, I don't think the problem you describe is to do with firmware.

You could try altering the following settings:

  • Contrast - 65
  • Sharpness - 2
  • Contrast Plus - OFF
  • NR - ON
  • Colour - approx 50
If this doesn't help, then the problem is most likely caused by a faulty lead between the LCD panel and driver board. This is a common problem with this model, but should not be an expensive repair.

Acer Aspire 5050 Notebook series suggested PCMCIA TV Tuner Card


Hi, Most brand/models will work for your laptop as long as the correct drivers are installed for the laptop's OS (Vista). One thing noticeable is slight heat build-up on most PCM CIA cards. On the other hand external TV via USB connection tend not to heat as much and does not load nor draw power from the laptop since they have their own power adapters. Both however will have a lower video quality compared to cable directly connected to TV connection. There are a number of models from AverMedia which should work straight out. My experience with Leadtek models has also been satisfactory so far. Hope this be of some help to you. Post back should you need additional information. good luck and kind regards.

You can have comcast allow you to log in using the new firmware at 192.168.0.1. You will need the user name and password from them. This will alow you into the firmware so you can change settings, including the PCMCIA card.
