Finally was able to borrow a laptop and updated my 6010. The instructions state to install the IDOL and EMPUSB programs, then to put the pj into download mode near beginning of the process, before actually setting up the usb connection? Now I'm not sure if that's correct, but 1 member, (Mstanic?) seemed to do it in that order, maybe resulting in having to power off, and then redo the download mode sequence?
It seemed to me that making an electrical connection, with the pj in this mode, seemed a little strange. I opted to first, install the programs on the laptop and running the install.bat file, switch off the electric power to the pj, and then making the usb connection. Then I started the pj up in download mode, checking for the proper light sequence.
The computer went through the "found new hardware", installed the programs, and then I checked the device manager to insure the port was seen by the laptop making a note of the number that was assigned.
The rest is pretty cut and dried, testing the port, and then setting it. Then selecting the file to install, (maybe 60 secs) and after it's done, cut the electrical power to the pj, unplug the usb cable, and waited 40 secs, (to be sure), so it cycles out of download mode. Selected the electrical power switch to on, and then wait for the blue "ready" light and then turned on the pj.
It did fix the backward alignment menu, but I haven't got around to watch much content, to see if I notice any other differences. I swear it appears sharper though, noticing while I was readjusting the alignment on the screen? Maybe just wishful thinking? My experience.
Oh, and btw, I was able to do the update while it was still mounted, but I did remove the cable cover to give easier access to the electrical power switch and the mini usb port. Remove the 2 thumb screws on the cover and it should rotate right off.
