I wanted to change the model number in the service menu to gain the extra capabilities that changing from B6000 to B7000 gives.
However, I think when changing it I pressed down instead of left/right meaning it when down the menu to 'Tuner'. Now, i didnt know which tuner it was on so I left it but when it came to turning the tv back on, it is now just stuck in a power on/power off loop
I just wish I never bothered now, stuck with no tv
Can anybody help at all?
Thanks in advance,
2. Have you set rs232 to debug? Watchdog off?
3. Do you have an exlink cable? What is the output?
So basically, no to all those questions... I have been reading about resetting the eeprom as it is only a setting changed not a bad firmware install, what do you know about that?
Thank you so much for replying,
The situation seems is not promissing for success.
I fear I have just bricked it, I'll see how I get on with this eeprom reset if its the last resort.
Code: Select all
ATMLH842 2EB 1
Will "EEPROM reset procedure" work for B-series mainboards (models with T-CH* firmware)? Probably not .
AFAIK this particular feature included in C/D-Series firmwares is not yet present in B-series. But I'm not 100% sure about that, it may be worth a try.
Apart from main EEPROM, there is one (or two) small MICOM EEPROM[s] on the mainboard (ATMLH850 02B 1, or perhaps S24CS02A). You can try your luck with that one too; hopefully it may trigger some kind of factory reset (but again - not likely).
If reset procedure fails: well, there are some other possible ways (for gaining access to serial console/disable watchdog/EEPROM contents restoring etc. - purely experimental, AFAIK never actually tested by anyone). In theory, you only have to change one byte value in main EEPROM . It practice that will be a lot of trouble (especially if you have no background in practical electronics). Mainboard replacement: much less trouble, 99% chance of success; they are relatively inexpensive..
thanks a lot for both your inputs /thumbs up
