Just bought a refurb 3000 from www.outlet.philips.com
Downloaded firmware ver. 3.6.7 from www.pronto.philips.com
Uploaded firmware ver. 3.6.7 to TSU3000 = Free
Reading this thread afterwards = Priceless
Now I can't get past the first calibration point.
My remote is a paperweight.
Luckily Philips issued a return pickup and my
card will be credited the full amount.

My account was credited and I immediately ordered a second refurbed tsu3000.
It worked for about two hours. For the most part it is completely dead. Software was not updated. Came with ver. 3.1.9 and seemed fine at first. Downloaded my pcf to it, made some changes. I even used it for few moments. Came back to it later to find it dead. No hard buttons, nothing. Let it sit overnight, plugged in the battery in the morning.....beep, beep. ALIVE, but only for about two seconds. It has done that twice. Tried fresh batteries, fully charged battery pack to no avail.
If it weren't for the 80+ hours in my pcf I would give up on this POS, but my time is too valuable to me so I guess I'll try a third refurb.
