Pioneer VSX-822k firmware update

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I'm currently doing the firmware update for my Pioneer VSX-822k: http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/Home/AV-Receivers/Pioneer+Receivers/VSX-822-K?tab=firmware

Now I followed the instructions, but my front screen as been flashing UPDATE for over 30 minutes now. Anybody know how long this update is supposed to take?

If I turn off the receiver... will it restore the previous firmware version?

Still nothing going on.

Anybody has ever done a firmware update on a Pioneer receiver? How long did it take?

should I turn the power off?

I did mine today, I also bought it today. I downloaded the firmware to my laptop, unzipped the file and put it on a small usb drive. It took about 3 minutes and said completed. The only weird thing is it said it was the VSX-1022 when it was done installing. Everything works though, Pandora is good.

Thanks for your reply.

After 1 hr+ of waiting, I finally turned off the power. Nothing critical happened, but the update did not work.

Initially, my NTSF usb key was not recognized at all. I've used a smaller FAT key. The file was found and the update begun, but never completed.

I'll try to find my older keys and try again... but now now : now it's movie time. smile.gif

Same exact problem here. I tried a flash with ntfs and it did not see it so I tried one with fat and it saw it and flashes update but it just keeps flashing and its been some time now. Did you ever get yours to work? I think I might do a factory reset and try again.

I had to try 3 different usb keys. The first one wouldn't read,it was NTFS, the second one was Fat 32 but it read updating for 3, hours. I unplugged it from the wall tried a 3rd USB key in Fat 32 and after it rebooted, it updated in about 5 minutes and read completed. The instructions said if it doesn't work use another USB key and that's all it takes.

Did an update this morning I reformatted a Sandisk Cruzer to fat32 unzipped the file to it followed Pioneers instructions got the "update" flashing on the 822 display for a minute or so than "complete" so I guess that is that.

I had the same issue. I even re-partitioned the 8 GB USB stick to 2GB. It didn't matter. I formatted the USB stick with fat32, fat16... Nothing worked. Always received "File not found"

 

Fortunately I had a 1GB stick that was formatted with DOS (yes DOS 6.2.2)

 

BOOM! finally the firmware update completed successfully. It seems the Pioneer "operating system" is based on an old OS. Be sure your USB stick is formatted with an older OS. Win XP should work but I haven't tested it.

 

This thread is over a year old. Hopefully it helps someone
