Trouble updating XV-V-70 handheld - can't re-enter loader mode
by tjcornish on 2012-02-11 17:12:56

I got my first V75 and am now trying to upgrade my older equipment.  I started with the XD-V70 handheld, successfully got it into loader mode, followed the directions for placement alongside the V75 receiver got Line6 Monkey to go into RF Loader mode, but something went wrong.  I got an error message (which unfortunately I don't recall exactly - something about not finding the handheld possibly).  I clicked Update again, and waited about 30 minutes with the progress bar animated.  I then gave up, and tried to shut off the handheld.  I had to pull a battery.

The mic appears to be fine (though still not updated), but I can't get it back in loader mode.  I follow the procedure of turning it on, holding the power, and at OFF, pressing select 8 times.  I briefly see "Loader On", then the backlight goes out, then the mic reboots to normal operation.

Have I trashed the bootloader?  Any way to rescue this guy so I can get it to the new RF?  It's still functional, but I would really like to update it.

Thanks,

TJ

Did you accidently try to flash a V70 mic as a V75?

It would be normal for the backlight to go out, but it should not re-boot.  Any possibility a button has stuck?

Anything is possible, but I am 99.99% sure I chose the V70 handheld as the target.  The buttons are not stuck.  I can easily perform the sequence to enter the boot loader, it displays "Loader On", but then almost immediately reboots.  I had no trouble getting it into loader mode the first time, and I must have tried the procedure a dozen times with slightly different variations of timing.

Did you get this mic from a dealer?   I saw something like that happen in "alpha" pre-production units, but never with a production unit.

Make sure you click "OK" in Monkey before putting the mic in loader mode.  Once Monkey is waiting to connect to the mic, then put it in loader mode.

Yep - purchased through a legit dealer in July 2011.  I have re-verified the procedure, and did as you suggest - waiting until the receiver was in RF Loader Mode before entering loader mode on the V70 transmitter.  No change - as soon as the handheld says "Loader On", the backlight goes off, it says Line6, and reboots.

I'm pretty sure I've managed to brick the bootloader, though as I mention the mic works fine.  Time for a ride home?

I'm having the exact same issue.  Hand held showes Loader On for a second, the reboots.  I am wondering if there is anything I can do to get this hand held to update?

Thanks,

Andy

Reboot  your computer and completely stray over.  Reflash your v75 receiver and then try the tx again.  I have never seen a transmitter get bricked.

Have you tried the total re-boot I described above?  Are the batteries in the TX reasonable fresh?  Are you sure you selected the correct update ... and not mistakenly tried to flash it as a V75?

How long in seconds will it stay in loader mode?  It does "time-out" if it doesn't sync up to the receiver when you start the flash proceedure.
