Has anyone had the ipronto not reboot properly. I was having problems with the ipronto learning new codes so i did a reboot with the reset button on the back.
It will go through the restart and then gets stuck on the icf file, the screen is stuck at the gray screen with the series of O))) O))) O))). None of the bottons work and rebooting won't make it work.

mine did that a few times but all I did was completly take power off it (unplug batteries)for a few minutes
then put power back on.

takes a little while but it comes back to life.

Another way to fix this:

When you press the RESET button on the back, hold down the scroll wheel for a while. This will activate a special setup menu. Make sure your network settings are correct, then go to RESTORE -> MARK FOR UPDATE.

When you reboot it'll check the firmware on the remote. If it's old it'll upgrade it and you'll be fine. If it's already the most current, it will still ask if you'd like to force an upgrade. Do that and it should (eventually) reboot fine. Note that you'll lose most settings (including the ICF file).

I have a slightly different problem. My ipronto boots up fine but just recently it started taking approx. 3 hrs to completely boot up.

I'm running the latest firmware. Should I force a new download or is there some other fix for this?

I'd try forcing a new download. Tends to clean everything up, even if it doesn't think anything is wrong.

mine recently started to make a loud static noise when it was doing its daily EPG update: I tried to get to the reboot page and it froze up

removed the battery then did a reboot and that cleared the noise problem

i read this thread hoping this would fix my situation. unfortunately not. i went to upgrade the firmware and now the ipronto is stuck on partition 3 of 6. i have tried removing the battery and pressing the reset button at least 60 times over a two week period. each time it resets itself the message tells me that the software is damaged and the firmware needs to be reloaded. i attempted to reload the default icf and the software tells me i need to update the firmware. i have tried to update it, tried to reload the default firmware and it continually gets stuck on partition 3 of 6. does anyone have a solution?

thanks,

Now, you're sure it's STUCK? The firmware update takes a LONG time. In what stage does it stop doing anything?

Hi daniel,
the remote has been attempting to update the firmware for three weeks. when i reset it, it goes through partitions 1 of 6, 2 of 6 then when it get to partition 3 of 6 it loads about half way according to the status bar below, then it locks up. in appoximately 1 minute it resets itself and starts to update again. unfortunately, it just cycles several times. then it gives up and stays on partition 3 of 6
hope this helps,

nu4ea

My iPronto was stuck in the rebooting mode described in the first message in this topic. When I tried the recomendation from Daniel Tonks, the device reported that it could not recognze the wireless adapter or words to that effect. It turns out the wireless card had come partially unseated and that caused the problem. Once I re-seated the card again, all was well.
