Helix LT does not start up or anything!

Recommended Posts

I just received my helix LT yesterday, downloaded the newest HX editor and tried to update the unit as recommended. Got stuck with the error and reboot situation I’ve read about, so I tried different USB ports and cables, tried the reboot while holding fs 6+12; nothing worked. Now my helix has stopped starting up altogether. It no longer shows the booting screen, all I see is flickering pictograms (see included video), and it doesn’t respond to any reset boot I try. Help? I’m on the brink of returning it as a faulty device.

Situations like this are usually due to a software glitch and reinstalling the firmware may well fix it. 
 

First try the suggested Reset options in the post above from “SaschaFranck”.

 

Also, it’s a big help when posting a request for these sort of issues to provide information about your computer and operating system. It helps to know what we’re dealing with. Also what firmware you are updating from and to.
 

O.K. To save having to type the same thing again, I recommend that you check this thread to see if that helps.

Hope this helps/makes sense.

If you have tried everything suggested here, and none of those who originally posted with similar situations have replied, your best solution is to contact Customer Support and raise a ticket. They may have a solution that we here are unaware of.

 

My greatest wish is that when people have posted in here in a complete state of panic, that they would at the very least return to post a solution or update for others.

 

Oh, yeah, also when requesting assistance, it’s a big help to know what computer system and hardware unit is, plus what version of the firmware you are upgrading from and to. Simply saying “nothing works” is not enough.

 

Good luck.
