Did I just brick my EDM 830?
I have a JPI EDM 830. Its been having a message DATALOG ERR. I tried a factory reset and also a data dump and neither helped. I found the software is way out of date - it was on 3.35. So I downloaded the 3.52.002 update package.
Notably - the webpage instructions mention a file named INFO-EDM830.hw that should be loaded to the USB drive, but then the .pdf in the update package doesn't. Given I have no idea where to find that file, I only put the unzipped .pkg file on the USB (8 GB) drive.
I then followed the instructions and the unit appeared to update fine without any errors, until the end where is says there is a data log error, fix? I responded YES.
About 1 second later the screen went black. After over 4 minutes of nothing appearing, I powered it down.
Since then, I have tried re-running the update, re-running the data log 'fix', etc. Every time I respond YES to the 'fix?' the unit seems to crash. If I respond no, then it seems to come online, I get engine instruments, cht/egt, tach, MP ... But the screen is crunched left (I have a landscape orientation), and pressing both buttons does NOT bring up the setup menu.
Any suggestions to get me out of this? Or have I semi-bricked it and need to send it in?
I've sent an email to JPI, but I'm guessing the answer will be 'send it in'. :-(
