Bricked my Pro-107 trying firmware update...
I hope someone can help me here!
My Pro-107 has always had trouble listening to an EDACS ESK system not too far from me. My other scanners can hear it and decode it with no degradation of audio. The Pro-107 would sometimes not stop on a TG at all (the other scanner stops on it just fine) or it would stop, but would be staticy for a couple of seconds and then pick up the TG loud and clear (the signal strength meter would fluctuate then lock on full strength. I know it's not an antenna issue as all the radios are run through an active multiplexer and that is the only one that doesn't work properly). Frustrated in the quality of the 107, I thought maybe it was an issue with the firmware trying to decode the ESK format. So...I tried an update and got the following screen:
up:App Ver: NONE
CPU SW Upgrade
Error - Turn off
The only way to turn it off is to remove the power cord, as pressing the power button doesn't register now.
I figured maybe the software was out of date so I updated that as well. Now the software will at least see the radio and try to update the firmware, but every time I try to load it to the radio it fails. The software gives me:
"The update of the firmware to the scanner failed. The scanner rejected the upgrade! This is usually due to a corrupt download from the Internet. Please try the update again."
I tried it several time....several times it failed.
Have I completely bricked my radio?
Any help is much appreciated!
