Symbol PDT 6846. After erasing flash NVM area, I get an error when trying to download a new NVM via loader: download error 02. The erase flash function of that program is failing. How can I correct this?

    When I cold boot, it ends up at the NVM Loader program. CTRL-C doesn't work. I can boot to command mode but again the loader fails with a 02 erros due to erase failure. I believe I need to reformat the flash area??? I am new to these scanners and they are old. The Motorola site is limited in it's documentation and error recovery.

    You can download the "Symbol_PDT6800_Series_Ref_Guide.pdf" file by clicking HERE which I uploaded for you to my FTP site.

    This file is the Symbol PDT 6800 series (included 6846) Reference Guide. Save it to your PC because the files which I uploaded may be removed in two weeks.

RF driver failed to load

It can only be one of two things.

Less likely but also will cost you nothing, try and reload LWP and UPD but don't forget to use the comman FLSHFMT on both E drive and D drive first.

More likely is that the radio card of the terminal is busted or might have become lose as the internal radio connector was always a bit flakey on this device. You can try removing the 6 screws on the plastic cover, open it and unplug and plug again the radio card.

Changing a file attribute on Symbol 6846

You will need to extract the files from the terminal to be able to edit them normally and then rebuild the hex file to reload on to it.

There are two commands that you may want to try on the terminal but i doubt you will be able to modify the file.

flshctl /w will enable you to write on the flash.
flshctl /ro will disable the write option.
