yes. I followed the instructions very paranoidly carefully. I prepared the CD just like the instructions said. I unziped the zip file, and there were 3 files in there. 1 file which was the firmware, and 2 files which were loaders (drivers), depending on the version of the loader the unit already has is the loader one should put in the CD.
Following the instructions, I prepared the CD puting 2 files in it: the firmware and the loader (driver). I turned on the dvdr unit, put the CD, the unit recognized it and started the “SW UPDATE”. (The loader was not yet upgraded). After the successful SW UPGRADE i selected the OK button in the TV and the unit turned off, the cd tray DIDN’T close itself, and the unit DIDN’T turn on itself after 10 seconds like it was supposed to. I pressed the power button but the unit didn’t turn on. I unplugged the power cord for like 1 minute (which was like 30 minutes to me) and tried again, but nothing. At this point I thought the unit was completely dead. After a few minutes trying and trying a lot of things, I kept pressed the power button, and then the unit turned on… uff… what a relief.
Next, I re-inserted the CD to perform the loader upgrade (which I thought was what was left to fix the unit). But to my surprise, instead of performing the loader (driver) upgrade, the unit started to re-upgrade the software. That’s when I figured out I should prepare a CD only with the loader upgrade in it and nothing else. I did it. I put the correct file alone in another CD. Upgraded the loader the unit said DRVIVER UPGRADE this time, checked the versions with 0009[OK], everything should have been fine, but the power-on problem just remains. It doesn’t power on normally
