7702mkII Firmware update failed and now it's stuck.
Stupid me said ok to a firmware update last night on my 7702mkII. Wired connection (cable is good since Fire TV & Oppo have network connection). Forget if I set a static IP on it or not, but I don't think I did. Update said 11 minutes porthole screen said "Main 11min" and nothing else. GUI disappears from projector and leaves a "no signal" which I was expecting. Checked the unit after some time and it said "update failed". I believe it powered off and back on with the message "Main 11min" but this time there were arrows/triangles and the time kept dropping. YAY! Came back after a few with about 3 minutes left. "Download fail". Unit reboots itself and displays "Main 11 min" only this time no arrows. Come back later, "Connect failure". Consulted manual. Press power button for 5 seconds and it comes back "Main 11 min" no arrows. "Connect failure". Bypass the switch in the rack and connect unit straight to router (also tried straight to modem), no change. Pull the power cord for about 15 minutes. Plug it in and the same "Main 11 min". Fine, let it run all night, no joy. Pulled the power cord before work this morning. Got home, plugged it in, still "Main 11 min". Tried pushing movie & music also game & a-dsx. Nothing. All it does is "Main 11 min" "Connect fail".
Anything else I can try or is it bricked?
ARRGGHHH! All good now. Here's what I found in the hopes it helps the next person.
Powered up the projector and the Fire TV and had NO Network Connection. WTH!?! It was working yesterday when this all started. Unplugged the network feed and cut off both ends and remade them. WOOHOO! we have arrows again. Got to just over 2 minutes left and "Download failed". GRRR! Rebooted to "Main 11 min" with no arrows. Unplugged all network patch cables. Grabbed new ones. Only plugged in the 7702. Nada. !?!?! Unplugged and reseated both network cables. "Main 11 min 90%" Holy crap! That's new! % hit zero, now says "EIMG 9 min" with arrows. Hit 2 minutes and Update Completed!!!
So... Main with arrows and no % = bad.
I think the network jack on the back of the 7702 is loose and not making the best connection.
