Today i tried to update the Firmware
from 1.1.3 April 12 2006 to
3.2.4 May 31 2017 with file tekafgtb-3.2.4.tfb.
I put this new firmware file 'tekafgtb-3.2.4.tfb' on a clean 64MB USB Stick
and started the firmware upload procedure.
This firmware doesn't finish, after waiting for more than 2 hours the rotating cursor
doesn't stop and the device seems to be in complete Hangup.
I stopped and switched off the AFG-3102.
Afterwards the AFG-3102 does not startup. It keeps beeping.
I am shure you are able to identify this state.
I need this AFG-3102 for some Test-Procedures.
What can be done?
Can i help myself or need this device to opened by Tektronix.
Regards and thanks in advance,
Firmware Image was checked before and after against what was written to USB stick.
USB stick was ok and the image was ok.
The USB stick was a 64MByte really small USB Stick.
I assume current FW version wasn't able to load the new Firmware, due to huge Version leap.
Current Version was 'AFG3102 Current 1.1.3 Apr 2006'.
Before i had the same Problem with a TDS2022B which wasn't able to read USB stick
beyond 128Mb in size.
So there is no way to circumvent the usual update path with a USB stick.
Sorry, but i need this device in daily test procedures.
Thanks for help in advance,

In your initial post you indicated that the instrument will no longer stars up and just beeps, yet the screen image in your recent post shows it powered up. If it is not starting up and is beeping, the only method to correct is return to a service center.
After 2 h of waiting, i powered it off and after that it stops working, .i.e powered on just only beeping
