Will not communicate with the computer? Iíve seen a few updates corrupt but Iíve always been able to force the reset and new firmware.

Tried the reset no lights, contacted amain, waiting on email back. bummer. Talked to a guy at MSH said if you connect the two center wires on the sys plug then plug back into the computer, will reset the ikon. My luck did not work. So in the mean time I ordered a new on from helidirect. So for the weekend I only flew the 516, e-5s, and the e7se, 4 flights on each. And 6 flights on my EF Yak 60cc., and 3 fights with my outlaw.

From some of the reading I've done in the iKon forums on HF, I've seen it lately where they say to uninstall the software, redownload it and reinstall it, and then try to update.  I think that's mainly for if you have a really old version of firmware, but something you can try while you wait to hear back.

This is a big reason why I have gone away from them, as it seems I've had more problems with updates, than what I should have.

I had a Brain 2 do something like that. MSH USA replaced it. My guess is that the bootloader memory got corrupted somehow. It's not normally touched by firmware updates, but sometimes a new bootloader needs to be installed.
