mpc 651 radio webupdate failure
« on: 13-February-05, 11:15:01 »

hi there

I recently bought a mpc 651 and after installing it, i wanted to update the radio moudule. So i downloaded the radio webupdate program. And unfortunately my computer crashed.  ;-((

After restarting i noticed that the radio tuner and display didnt work anymore. And the webupdate program says it cant find the radio module.

After browsing this forum i heared something about flashing it in dos. But i cant seem to find the firmware or utilities anywhere. Does anyone know where i can find these? Or is there another solution to get my radio and display working again? I sure hope so.

  • if you had browsed down the first page you might have seen this topic Radio WebUpdate BIOS

    however the attachment has not translated during forum software conversion, and i am trying to obtain another copy of it, meanwhile you could send a PM to the happy chappy at the bottom of that topic and ask nicely if he will send you the ZIP file

  • thanks to wonkanoby, i now have the bluebird firmware, it is attached to this post

    the procedure remains the same as before: you'll need either a bootable floppy, USB stick or CD.
    extract the ZIP to the floppy, usb stick or CD and boot into DOS. run the flash.bat program. when completed, you MUST power off your mega 651 and UNPLUG the power cord from the unit for a few seconds, then reconnect and power back on.

    oh and also please be aware this is ONLY for the Mega 651, NOT for the 180 / 865
