Firmware updates are applied by burning the firmware update you've downloaded onto a disc, and then loading that disc into your player.

I hope that helps.

    I poked around a little more, and cannot find a firmware upgrade online for a KROSS TS-5188DVDR, except for one site that provided a .ZIP file that contained a .CUB file inside it. I was looking for sources of your firmware because several dvd players and recorders I know of do use a .CUB file read off of a burnt disc to upgrade their firmware, but they do so in conjunction with a .BIN file. I wondered if you require this second file to upgrade successfully.

    Additionally, while poking around I noticed several forums like this one that talk about having to plug Kross STB's into a computer with a null modem cable, and run an initialization procedure to upgrade the STB's firmware. I would be surprised if this would also be the case with KROSS DVDR's, since burning a dvd would be so much easier that using a null modem cable.

Where can i download the firmware for my tablet irulu 10.1 "

Only when a brand like irulu offers an update of the firmware, you can download firmware. But I think now you ask for firmware you even can't use new firmware. I think you have bricked your tablet. But to load firmware, your tablet needs to work correct. If during an update (or while rooting) something goes wrong, you can't put in new firmware, because the tablet does not know what to do with the USB connection or with the memory card holder. Only a workshop with the correct tools can put in some firmware.

As soon as irulu has an update of the firmware they will notify registered users they can download the firmware and they also provide a manual, how to do the update. There are always warnings, if something goes wrong during an update, you can end with a bricked tablet. But if it is a regular update, they also tell you who to contact if something goes wrong.
Try to fine a certified irulu repair centre and ask them for help. (and what it will cost)

I have a Ricoh 161 but after a firmware update erro (NIB) the machine tries to continue the update. How I cancel the firmware update or reset the firmware in the machine? ----------------- Eu tenho uma...

You can not stop a firmware update.
Did you turn the machine off while the firmware update? If you did that your NVram is broken
I think that the only chance you have is with a new NVram. Sorry but you will have to put a new NVram.

I am trying to update the firmware on my new A580IP phone using my web browser connected to the base station. I get a transmission error "0" every time. Is the default download web site...


According to the effectiveness of the past.
To update the firmware for gigaset A580ip not require you to download it,
just do the update directly through gigaset on-line
follow the steps below.

1> Menu » Settings » Base » Firmware Update
2> Enter base station system PIN (default setting: 0000)
3> Press the display key "Yes" to start the download
If your firmware is already up to date, the handset informs you. No action is needed then.

How to check for your firmware version:

Via Web Configurator: Status » Firmware version » The first 5 digits indicate the number of the firmware update

If you are in a call (> 8 sec): Menu » Service-Info » Scroll to list entry number 4. The first 5 digits indicate the number of the firmware update

The DVD recorder would no boot up

Hello Ken,

Here are the things that you need to do to isolate the problem:

1. Make sure that there's no disk inside the recorder.
2. Turn off the power from the unit (not using the remote).
3. Unplug the DVD from the wall / power outlet.
4. While being unplug, hold down the power button for 30 seconds and plug it back in while still holding down the power button and then release it.

If that will not do any help, change the C18 and C36 (both 2200uf at 10v). the C18 and C36 are on the power supply and most of the time, they are Green.

Have a great day!
