I'm wondering if anyone tried the 2701 firmware D05 package from Tektronix website with success.
The FlashWizard32 will not allow downgrade, and the direct links to the older firmware no longer work (they landed on the Product Support and Downloads search page).
Thanks in advance!
It seems that the D firmware is not for older units with A/B/C firmware and should have been marked as such.
Sending you a private message now to help correct your situation.
Will correct the firmware posting too.
Thanks so much for the reply. I'm too new on this forum to send or reply to PM. I sent you a direct email.
I have had this same problem how do I fix it?
Sending you a private message now...
I ran into the same problem. Is there a solution now?
Since the original occurrence we have updated our firmware descriptions - to try prevent any confusion:
D firmware applies to units with D firmware only.
Do not attempt to upgrade units with older A, B or C firmware.
B firmware applies to units with version B firmware only
Do not install on instruments with version A, C or D firmware.
The good news is that we can get your unit back to your previous firmware version.
I will send you a private message with the procedure.
Thanks for your replay. I couldn't reply to your PM so I'll just post here. I've successfully downgraded it back to firmware B03. However, I still have a problem.
The reason I was looking for a firmware upgrade is that I hooked the multimeter up to a computer via ethernet cable directly, but when I try to configure it in LabVIEW using NI MAX under the "Network Devices", it cannot be found. I pinged the IP address in cmd and it responded. Then I go to the IP address using a browser, the information page popped up just fine. So can you help me figure out my problem here?
If you can ping it (and also open its' webpage using the ip address) that's a good start.
For LabVIEW to work try to see if NI-VISA finds the instrument--
Open NI-VISA Interactive control.
At the bottom of the window, enter the following in the Resource to Open field and then press <Enter>:
(where ww.xxx.yyy.zzz is the ip address of your instrument)
If the resource opens, then go ahead and use the same resource with LabVIEW.
my unit is also bricked.
Please send me a pm with the recovery procedure.
thank for the mail.
But the link to the B03 firmware is broken.
Apologies, it seems the tek website was undergoing changes last week.
The link to 2701 B03 firmware should be good now:
