Check you have the correct COM port selected

Set jumpers 1 and 6 to ON (down), rest must be OFF when flashing.

Set jumpers 2 and 5 to ON (down), rest must be OFF when Unlocking.

kinel having com1 selected doesnt mean its right...
the lead might be going into com2 on the computer
make sure about that...so check which com is the lead connected on to the computer.....

Assuming your using some flavour of Windoze check for conflicts in device manager first.
I have my COM 1 port set thus:

are you using the correct lead??? serial lead same as pheonix programmer.
i have recreated your problem on my setup.
any of the following will produce that error.

no power to the t911 (the red light should be on if it isn't reverse the polarity)
are you using the correct serial lead (same lead as libby and pheonix programmer requires)
if dip switches 1 and 6 are not set (both end ones)
finally (the nexus is faulty)< it does happen
