Well I tried to update the firmware on the PM3 as prompted by Microchip, which is now the worst idea that I have had. Updating the firmware has now bricked my PM3 and it is no longer usable.
The PM3 is constantly coming up with a BIOS 13 error, it is no longer recoginsable on the USB and will not connect via USB. I have connected with an older serial cable which allows me to connect and it attempts to update the BIOS and firmware, however fails when it tries to download the database and it will reset during this procedure.
I am wondering if anyone has had any experience with rectifiying the error. I have contacted microchip support about this issue and was told to install the drivers again for usb and update the firmware.
All versions of the PM3 come up with 00.00.00.00 and it attempts to load the OS again and again, but to no avail.
Any help would be appreciated.
