I own a vintage Sony HES-V1000
Long story short, I did a recent firmware update and broke it.
I can get into the service menu but i cant read anything cause the text is not there. just empty boxes. i can move about and control the unit. just blindly
I will gladly pay you to just turn your unit on in the service mode and take pictures of the screens and email them to me. i am looking for something like factory reset or initialize.
I also have a DVD with the firmware burnt on it, if there is an option for a "firmware upload via disk" that may work too.
I have attached a screenshot of what it looks like to get into the menu. It only shows up out of the analog outs, NOT HDMI!
Again, my units works. I can guide my way through opening the door, drawer, eject disk and so on...
I just need to find "load firmware" or "reset and/or initialize"
Please let me know if you can help me. I am at [email protected] - or send me your phone # and we'll talk it through
