Firmware Update BC996T
Problem: am having problems upgrading the firmware in my BCD996T.
Current firmware: v1.03.11
I have used the BCD996T_USAD program to backup my scanner settings and confirm PC to scanner communications are OK - COM1 at 115200. I also use the Proscan program to communicate with the scanner and it works file.
Problem: BC_VUP (firmware update) program doesn't "see" (read: communicate with scanner) and so wont update firmware. I have tried different versions of the BC_VUP program. They don't work. I have tried 2 different laptops to the scanner (in addition to the original PC) and the BC_VUP program just doesn't see the scanner even after the (press 6 & L/O keys) to put the scanner in (remote program?) mode so scanner is ready to accept firmware update.
I have read the followed upgrade directions to the letter several times. I have reset my scanner to factory defaults (after my backup) and still the BC_VUP program fails when trying to see the scanner.
Q.) Anyone know a trick to get the scanner into (remote program mode) so that the BC_VUP program will inject the BCD996T_V1_04_12.scn firmware into the scanner? I'm trying to get to the release 3 and I know I have to do all the in between steps to get there...
