Orville Posted June 13, 2022 Share Posted June 13, 2022 (edited) Tried to update my N4G4 MP3 Director to the latest firmware, N4MP3g4-V6-9.lhx But Director when attempting to load came up with these issues: #1. When using the MP3 tab to locate the Director it shows connected, but the time shows as ??? 73:85Pm with FW # as V254.250 it should have been the last firmware revision of N4MP3g4-V6-7.lhx. As that was what was in it from the last FW update I did some time back. #2. When I go to open the FW N4MP3g4-V6-9.lhx, it opens and is in the box, click download and I keep getting this problem: Invalid Datablock Response, it won't load the FW, it tried, and after this attempted FW update the entire digital screen is now blank and won't turn back on. I've tried various known, good cat5 cables of assorted lengths, and the red LED won't go solid, it just blinks. HU says to press a reset button on the Director Card, but there is NO RESET BUTTON that I can locate, I thought the hole next to the RED LED would be a likely candidate for a reset button, but just seems to be an open hole for some reason, no reset button there. So I can't reset it, can't get the display on and if I close the HU and then reopen and go to the MP3 Tab it starts stamping a popup block with Serial Event Error ~ Poll Type 51 ~ Overflow. Any way to correct this? Or will it have to be returned to LOR for repair? I've tried everything I can think of and it's dead in its tracks, can't do anything with it at all now. And I use this unit year round to run my handicap lighting, but now I can't even use it for that. BTW: I get that same Poll 51 error if I click on the set time button to see if it would at least correct and fix the time, those Poll 51 popup boxes are never ending unless I unplug the cat5 cable from the USB485B adapter, then close over 100 of those popup boxes, as they just keep generating until I unplug the cat5 cable. Been trying to get it to work for over 2 hours and haven't had any luck. Hoping I'm just overlooking something, but I'm afraid this one may have to be sent to LOR for repair due to the time, display not working and can't update the Firmware in it with the issues I have with it now. I have screen captures from the HU, but they are more than what I am seeing is allowed currently for the max size permitted. Will see if I can shrink then and post them if possible. Would upload them to my OneDrive account, but I've never been successful in getting anything from the MS OneDrive account to ever show up with nothing but a red X. 😟 Any advice on getting this working again would be very appreciated.
