After a lot of hasteling of MSI they finally sent me some new firmware. I'm fairly sure it's not the BIOS, as the flashing procedure is very different. The LCD runs on firmware that is seperate from the BIOS, so this is probably it.

I can't try it till this evening, but would be interested if someone else can. I can email the firmware to anyone who needs to fix their thashed LCD. But I can't guarantee anything as I have not tried it myself.

I have the MEGA 180 boxed in the back of the car, ready to send off midday today, so would be very interested if anyone can test it before that.

If you want to try it, reply with your email address!

    Please find the enclosed latest firmware available for the MEGA 180 unit.
     
    In order to flash this firmware into your units please follow the following procedure -
     
    1.Boot to pure DOS (using a bootable CD which can be made in Nero e.t.c)
    2.Type "i2cdown -b:3 -d:0xd0 -a:0xa4 -target:rom XXXXX.bin" - Then press enter.  (Where XXXXX.bin is your updated firmware file)

    3. Flash

    4. Pull out the power plug. Restart.

    If you have any problems, please let us know

    Mike-
    Can you tell me what I'm doing wrong?  I downloaded the firmware and made a bootable disk, but after running thefirmware installer, I receive an error message "failed to open file bxa0cms0.bin".  

    Thanks-haven't seen my lcd yet!

    I don't know much about this procedure, only that MSI sent me the above instructions and file to fix my LCD vanishing problem. The problem was due to running a welcome.exe application from the TV tuner CD. If this was not the cause of your problem it is posible that there is another problem and it can't be fixed like this.

    I would at least expect the bxa0cms0.bin file to be opened and the flasher to fall over either when it is flashing, or to have to no effect.

    In this case it sounds like there is a problem opening the bxa0cms0.bin file. Are you sure it is in the same location that you are executing the i2cdown flasher from? Has the extract of the zipped file worked OK? Can't think of anything else right now.

    Firmware installed, but no LCD

    I got the firmware installed, but still no LCD (never had one).  I guess I'll have to check to see if the LCD is actually plugged in the motherboard.

    Looks like the LCD front panel is attached to the MB; Remote is ineffectual when in HIFI mode also.  I'm thinking my front panel is bad, but anyone with other suggestions would be great..

    Hi, like the Mega180 so much I bought a new one when my LCD went down.  If you send me the firmware I may end up with a whole backup unit!

    Thanks.

    Damn, my lcd is trashed, but it trashed itself while mega 180 was off, I mean, the clock hanged at "7:52" so I unplugged the power cord, now it is off and it doesn't work.
    I have succesfully flashed that file but the problem is not solved at all.

    I can use the hi-fi mode but with no display... and it's very difficult.

    And.. yes, it is well plugged.

    Any suggestions?
    thanks

  • Hi

    Having the same issue with my Mega PC 180. The display is dead. Is there anyone that still have the firmware? Seems the moderator removed it from this thread.
