Only thing you can do for now, is remove the jpg's, or try to alter them (resize or whatever) this might (and i said might) work.

If you don't want to delete or alter them, store them in a temporary folder in the movie folder till the FW is fixed.

Hello to everyone !

By mistake I have updated the PlayonHD Mini straight from FW r4312 to (SDK3.X) r4090
The unit is not booting any more, showing only the startup screen with PlayonHD logo.

I tried to safe flash to (SDK3.X) r3582 (holding the power button when powering the device up) but nothing happens, flash procedure does not start.
Strange thing is that flash stick seems to be not powered (flash stick LED is off)

What is the right recovery procedure and what FW I should go back to ?

Any help is greately appreciated !

    01. First perform safe-mode reflash using r3875 firmware for Playon!HD Mini (PV73200).

      How to Safe-Mode Reflash
      a. Extract the content from the downloaded zip file and place it on the top / root directory of your thumbdrive.
      b. Switch off main power to your unit.
      c. Plug in your thumbdrive to USB port of your unit.
      d. Press and hold onto the front power button on the front panel.
      e. Switch on main power to your unit.
      f. Release the power button when the firmware update starts flashing on your display and in a moment, it will automatically reboot when the update is completed.

    02. If you're able to revert back to r3875 firmware without any issues, proceed to update your unit to r3582 using System Upgrade.

      How to System Upgrade
      a. Extract the content from the downloaded zip file and place it on the top / root directory of your thumbdrive.
      b. Plug in your thumbdrive to USB port of your unit.
      c. Proceed to Setup | System | System Update and select System Upgrade.
      d. The firmware update should start flashing on your display and in a moment, it will automatically reboot when the update is completed.

    03. Once successfully updated your unit to r3852, then proceed to update to r4090 using System Upgrade.

r4090 requires a base firmware r3582.

Do not safe-mode reflash or system update directly from older SDK firmware to r4090. You might encounter unknown hardware error, firmware not working message. Should this happens, try to safe-mode reflash back to lower firmware such as r3875 or r4312. Then try system upgrade back to r3582 before updating to r4090.

Since i see a lot of posts from people who've upgraded, but shouldn't have, why not create an update check routine, that verifies if you meet the upgrade requirements? (if wrong version, don't allow upgrade)

Thank you junwei !

I followed your instructions to the letter.
Unfortunately downgrade to r3875 is not working.
Mini keeps showing the boot screen with logo, I kept pressing the POWER button during 2 minutes but FW update is not starting.
I tried several flash sticks and both USB connectors.
One strange sign is that activity LED on flash stick is not blinking, Mini is apparently not communicating with the stick.
After removing the stick and the plugging in again, the activity LED starts blinking but nothing happens on TV screen - only boot logo.

Is it possible to recover Mini with RS-232 cable ? Otherwise I need to send it back to Netherlands and it's quite expensive (I live in Estonia)

HELP !

Best regards,
Andres

Unfortunately it didn't work for me.

After a successfully safe-mode reflash (r3875) and a system-update (r4090).

The first time the mini work but after a full power down (I removed the power cord) and poweron (power cord is than present)

I get the same results.
Any help is greately appreciated !

Best regards,

reflash to r3875,
then use system menu>>system>>system upgrade to flash to R3582,
now you are ready to flash to r4090 by system menu>>system>>system upgrade again.

;)
