Author Topic: H0 ECOM100 Bootloader update failure - have I bricked it?  (Read 514 times)

Hi,

I was updating an H0-ECOM100's bootloader and I fear I may have bricked it. Netedit gave me a 216 error (probably due to the XP instance I was using's firewall having decided to turn itself back on) and the device was flashing its error light (steady fast flashing I think). While I was researching what that error meant, a power bump caused the device to power cycle. The error light has stopped and the 100 / link lights are on solid and the activity light is flashing. But when I look at the PLC via serial, the card identifies itself as a D0-05AA:AC 8in/AC 6out not an ECOM. Is there any hope or is it gone?

Thanks,
Jacob

Further to this, that I/O I mentioned above is the native I/O of the DL-05 I'm using for testing. I installed a different ECOM and it shows up in slot 1. This means the problem unit isn't showing up at all.

Thanks,
Jacob

What version of NetEdit3 are you using?   Go to Help-> About to find the version.

Currently using 3.16 on Windows XP.

I've also used it on Windows 7 but it seems less reliable and lacks the IPX by default.

Ugh.  Yeah I see now where you said you had a power bump.  That's nearly always some really bad juju on a booter update.  I'd say you are right; "It's dead Jim."

Host may be able to revive it.  It's worth an email to support at hosteng.com to see.
