Download the rescue image, extract and put the 2 update files on a formatted fat 32 usb stick.

Place in the back of the receiver, turn on while pressing ok till you see "forc"

Press up till you see "spar"

Press right till you see "fact"

Press ok.

Been looking around other forums and I have come across this error but no solution.
Do you have a Null modem cable to attempt the rescue image using serial? If not I would return it to where you got it from.

try this again before you go any further, notice the extra steps

Press and hold the OK button
wait 30 seconds
Power off whilst still holding the OK button pressed
wait 30 seconds
Power back on
wait for the display to show FORC
release the button.
Press the Up button.
When SPAR shows press OK

not tried this myself but I have found this on another forum.

If nothing works, not even "force", then:

Connect the receiver to your PC with Null-Modem (Cross-Wired RS232) cable

Open a Terminal application (Like PuTTY)

Select your COM port, set the baud rate to 115200 and open the connection

Turn the receiver ON

When you see the 'PK7105' prompt, copy the following command without the quotes ("") and press ENTER:
"set bootargs console=ttyAS0,115200 rw ramdisk_size=6144 init=/linuxrc root=/dev/ram0 nwhwconf=device:eth0,hwaddr:00:06:37:04:15:00
ip=192.168.40.83:192.168.40.19:192.168.40.1:255.255.0.0:lh:e th0:eek:ff
stmmaceth=msglvl:0,phyaddr:1,watchdog:5000 bigphysarea=6000"

When you see the 'PK7105' prompt again, copy the following command without the quotes ("") and press ENTER:
"nboot.i 0x80000000 0 0x00100000 ;bootm 0x80000000"

The receiver should boot to SPARK

Upgrade the receiver to the "spark_1.2.54 Europe" version (This is
important!)

From reading it looks like your box maybe a clone. Can I ask where you bought it?

it was bought from alibaba
Thats means its 99% a clone. It has been killed by the latest update to spark. I have a suggestion for you if this doesn't work how you might be able to get your money back. (will do it by pm).
If you do get it running do not update spark past the version shown above.

"hi have tried that the display dose not change it reads 0000 and not forc when you power on the receiver I think I will have to use it as a door stop thanks"
