Happy New Year Umax owners! I was under strict instructions from my wife NOT to brick the tv while bowl games were on and out of town guests were here visiting. Also, I do not have a 3rd party warranty for the tv so its all or nothing. I've gotten a thumb drive that works and ready to go Chinese.
Chris, I've studied your Dropbox instructions and pictures closely and I am not confident about the #14
in the following steps:
13. If you can see this screen, it means you are all set for Chinese firmware update, but they are all in Chinese
14. Click “SETUP” button from the remote and click on the last option for SYSTEM SETTING
15. Click the third option for “GENERAL”
How you got the tv to go from screenshots 13 to 14 is my concern. The menu shown has an orange dialogue box above the top, far right icon (?Setup-looks like a home). You state "click Setup from the remote"...does this mean press the SELECT button of the remote on this top, far right icon? If so, is this how that icon becomes the typical gear icon we know as SYSTEM SETTINGS and then you get an expanded vertical menu box, with the last item selectable being the tool icon which you state is system setting? Or more simply, in 14 when you say to click SETUP button from the remote, which button is that?
Sorry to be dense, I just want to be careful. I've clicked on the link to US firmware to roll back and I get a Page Not Found error message. Thanks.
