    Default HT1550 Firmware Upgrade Error Question

    While were on the 1550, I was upgrading my firmware, I got en error on my laptop that the Firware upgrade couldn't be completed and failed. Radio appears it won't turn on anymore. Any work around for this?

    Does your question relate to the file that was posted? Not flaming you; just want to make sure there isn't an issue.

    If not, then I will move your post to a new thread.

    Sorry, I should have mentioned that. I was not using the firmware provided. It was a download from my MOL Account. I have the older flash adapter from Motorola with factory rib with cable. I wonder if the Depot will still flat rate these....

    It has been a while since I last bricked a legacy radio, but check these:
    Does the comtool get a response? If it does you should be able to flash in an image of your choosing with tools not to be mentioned.
    After that, set market area, serial and do a tuneup (alternatively load the backup tuning data you saved earlier).
    Noted elsewhere, earlier radios have had problems with EEPROMs wearing out. Fixed by replacing it.
