Firmware bricked my Spectrum

I updated the firmware (the .04, .05, and .06 versions) and the USB update, and now my monitor literally won’t turn on. Anyone else had this problem or have any ideas for me?

Such issues can usually be solved by unplugging the power cable (not just turning the monitor off with the button on the monitor) for 15+ seconds (minutes wouldn’t hurt).


I worked with another user who had the same thing. It took some work, but we were able to get it back up and running.

A couple of questions - did you follow the procedure in the instructions.pdf explicitly?

Also, as MT said, unplugging should work, but with the one user I most recently worked with, it required an unplug for well over 15 minutes before it started being responsive again.
