My Pronto does the 4 beeps trick. I've tried to download the firmware with Prontoedit with no luck.

I'm trying the Hyperterminal route from the FAQ's, but the ESC button does not force the unit to the CABERNET> prompt. This is what I get:

00
02
04
10
12
14
16
18

Booting...
BOOT,400000,V1.2 ,05/29/1998,17:38:08,CRC OK
20
PSOS,404000,V1.0 ,03/17/2000,12:53:50,CRC OK
30
_APP,440000,App V4.85 ,03/17/2000,12:55:00,CRC OK
40
_SYS,410000,V3.62 ,03/17/2000,12:55:05,CRC BAD
61
_CCF,4a1000,N/A ,05/26/2003,17:23:45,CRC SKP

Any suggestions ???

It appears that the SYS is bad. My suggestion is to reflash the firmware, which you said that you tried already. But this time, keep on doing it until it works. You said that your Pronto is doing the 4 beep trick, do you mean it's in the 4 beep loop, keeps on rebooting itself every couple of seconds? If so then when you do the firmware update, don't press the reset button as prompted on the computer. Instead let it reset itself. It may happen on the first try, or it might not happen until the 15 or so try. But keep trying. Also take the batteries out for at least 8 hours, 24 would be the best though.

I just got this unit from a friend who had given up on it. I get no display on the screen. When I insert the batteries, the buttons light up for a couple of seconds, then the turn off and the unit beeps four times. ( once ).

When I try to flash the firmware, I reset with a paperclip as instructed, but then get an error window " We were not able to reboot properly, Firmware update will stop "

I tried not doing the manual reset, like you suggested, but the unit just sits there, doesn't do anything.

Any other ideas?

When you said that the remote is doing the 4 beep trick. I thought that you ment it beeps 4 times, screen comes on for a second, then it repeats itself over and over.

But since your's is not repeating itself. Leave the batteries out for 8 hours or so. Then come back to it. Attach the remote to the computer. Do the update firmware stuff, and when asked to reset the remote, put the batteries in.

Thanks King of typos. This old posting helped me to fix my beeping remote. I thought it was finally dead. I tried the method you posted, several times, but it didn't work. Then I tried it with the batteries installed, but it still didn't work. When it finally worked (the batteries were in) I had gotten to the point that it asked you to reset the remote, I walked away for a minute, when I came back it was updating the firmware. Thanks again, Steve
