HDX 7001 Revival

Hello,  I was hoping someone may be able to help me revive a HDX 7001 that is getting stuck on the Polycom logo when it tries to boot up.  I tried a factory reset and it did not seem to help. 

 

My next idea was to use the USB method and put the .PUP file and txt file on the usb stick and try to restore that way.  This presented an interesting question.  I don't know version software is currently on the unit as it will not boot.  The website says "Use this software (2.6.1.3) as an intermediate step to upgrade an HDX system from version 2.0.3 or earlier"

 

My question is, is it a better idea to load 2.6.1.3 and possibly downgrade the unit in the process if the version on the unit is newer, then upgrade to 3.1.13 or try to directly upgrade to 3.1.13 and possibly skip the intermediate step in the process?

 

Thanks in advance!

Hello @appleaday3k,

 

welcome to the Polycom Community.


Most likely the unit is requiring an RMA but as you have not provided enough basic details we cannot respond with the next steps.

 

If you have access to the licensing portal you can check the devices serial and create a recovery USB stick with the right license file.

Please ensure to provide some feedback if this reply has helped you so other users can profit from your experience.

Re: HDX 7001 Revival

Thank you Steffen,

We are a vendor that supports multiple offices and the Polycom was purchased in the past and is not under a support contract as it is extremely old.

Do you know how I be able to obtain access to the portal to download the recovery tools?

I actually have another unit we want to repair so this process is a good learning experience :)
