Hope this is appropriate forum, did look and search on this but nothing came back. Looking for help with a half bricked unit mid firmware update. I recently brought and FTM-100DE. After discussions with the shop on firmware, etc. I was advised that updates were easy on this model and to go google it, which I did. Found there was a display panel update which others had done without issue (v1.1) Downloaded cable driver and update from Yaesu and followed instructions to letter. So driver first, verify showing in device manager, then radio in update mode holding down buttons and flipping update switch down, press reset. plugging in, etc. All seemed good but it wont update! All I get when I press update is a 10 second or so pause, then the error noted in the manual as what will happen if it fails to update, which is not much help. Firmware update was cancelled. (H'00,H'A0) Reversed steps, radio wont power up. Hard boot (remove power) and radio now boots but still in update mode. Display only shows: YAESU WIRESX And nothing else. Power key cycles lock function, display key if held blanks display (as it does in update procedure) and the dial turns brightness up and down (normally tunes). No other buttons do anything, either momentary or held down. Retried procedure from scratch more than once and rollback steps in reverse multiple times. Tried alternate USB ports and finally tried on a second PC, all from scratch, nothing helped Anyone know of anyway to reset this unit and get it out of 'update' mode?
