after updating to the b022 firmware (from the b006) the port screen will not allow any pixels to be added. the error says the pixel count can not be more than "0" pixels..
please advise

see screen shot

Keebler

and will not let me revert back to b006 nor 1.09 (claims the later is not compatible with controller)

I'm not running 22 on any of my F16v2s, but I have seen that msg when I did not have enough channels defined in the other tabs

I've been using b022 on a f16V2r two seasons or more. I have an expansion board so there is a slider on the top to allocate/balance the number of channels allowed. Try changing it to have an expansion (even if you don't) then change it back.

I did what you suggested and viola, i was able to add my pixels. however, even in test mode. NONE of the pixels light.

Keebler

so, i have to ask... is there a way to revert back to an older build?

JonB256

try a few outputs at 100% and see if you get any light.  20% is pretty low.

Have you tried a Factory Reset?  or at least try reinstall b022

Keebler

yes,
factory reset (hold SEL while rebooting) - got the oled back
reinstalled b022 twice
same thing..
the controller says that it is sending out TEST, but nothing is displayed on the pixels. (even tried TEST mode via the oled)

raised intensity to 50% and tried 80% - still nothing

Quote from: Keebler on December 16, 2022, 11:00:15 AMcan the fw be reset via pickit (2 or 3)
not by the end user, you'd need the boot loader which is not public

Keebler

so, in essence i have a dead board - with no way to potentially correct it?

Keebler

so, i was able to get the fw reverted back to F16V2R 1 11 006 BETA
however, now on the board.. LED 1 & 2 are blinking together rapidly.
ive tried the fac reset - to no avail
the oled is blank
the board is unreachable via network

can anyone help me?
or am i a lost cause?
