Cannot update firmware

I've got the Firmware update tool v 1.0.1.9, and the firmware we believe will work best for high noise environments. Using the USB base, including all polycom cables, we are unable to connect to COM4, which is were the USB serial port is configured. COM4 in the connection box says '(possible KIRK device)', but 'Test Connection' results in failure (connection failed, could not read from device). Any tidbits of information that will lead us to success? Windows 7, 32bit.

Re: Cannot update firmware

Hello plaurent,

 

welcome to the Polycom Community.

 

Can I assume that you have turned the Handset off and follow the on screen messages for the Update?

 

Best Regards

Re: Cannot update firmware

Yes sir. I followed the instructions implicitly. I have the same issues with the Handset Management software as well. Neither works. I've tried several laptops as well, just to ensure that it wasn't some sort of weird hardware issue. My reseller seems to have very little experience with the KIRK product, and so I'm left with not a lot of help. Wish I could buy a support contract directly from Polycom.

 

Meanwhile, the update issue with the 6020 series is a real pain, as it is preventing us from using firmware that seems to perform better in high noise environments.

Re: Cannot update firmware

Hello,

 

looking at the Polycom Portal I can see that the 50xx and 60/70xx Handset Tool is actually 1.1.0.11 and the Handset Management Program 1.2.0.17

 

Have you tried the online Update tool => here <= (unsure if you require a Polycom Account to access) as I just tested this from home and flashed both my 5040 and 5020 under Windows 7 without any issue.

 

Maybe contact me with a private mail and provide your details and some serials so I can organize KIRK Support to contact you directly.

 

Best Regards

Re: Cannot update firmware

Unfortunately, the online tool produced the same error. I have sent you a Private Message with my contact information.
