I was setting up bouquets on a dreambox I got for a mate. Once finished I plugged the scart back into mine and I found the screen saying "flash complete with the background on radio. Oh sh*t I thought. Whilst using the remote on mates box it had also been operating mine doing god only knows what.

After re-booting it it was just a black screen so I flashed the original image back on with dream up v1.2.2.0 but it is still dead. I have tried dream up again but still the same. Have I killed it or is there something I can do?

Any advise would be gratefully received.

Do a flash erase twice using dreamup then flash the original firmware. The flash whatever image you want.

Results are the same mate. The black screen seems to flash from dark complete black to a lighter black constantly

Re-flashed with original dream image for new tuner driver. I have used this method once before with same image after a bad flash. before I wrecked it I was using dream plus 0.9b.

Neutrino images are not as straight forward m8 (they are easy but need a little more reading)). Now get this image 100% working for you i.e Service file and boquets, get all your channels orders so they are right for you.

when you are 100% happy with image

press blue
DW Dream Menu
Image Backup & Restore
press red

A full backup is now saved in the tmp folder of your dreambox

next FTP your box and copy the image in your temp folder to your PC (this is now your backup)

When ever you mess up your box do the following

Reflash a the same image you just put on your box

http://www.digitalworldz.co.uk/forum...o=file&id=1039
then ftp your backup image to the tmp folder on your dreambox

Next

press blue
DW Dream Menu
Image Backup & Restore
press green

This then installs your backup image on the box, It will reboot itself,

He presto you have your box working again 100%

Hope that helps m8:)

M8 reflash using latest DW 1.6 image

http://www.digitalworldz.co.uk/forums/index.php?resources/1039/

using dreamup , do a scan and let us know howe you get on:)


Have to say when I read that thought it would not work, and the only way to unbrick a Dream was to reflash the origional image. Thats the great thing about these forums, as long as you can be bothered to read the posts and the Tuts you lean so much.

Pleased the OP got his prob solved
