Firmware uprgade failed - camera is dead ("bricked")
« on: January 25, 2010, 01:25:54 AM »

I have a bricked/dead dcs-2121. The red light in front will light up for a few seconds, then turn off and turn on again after about half a second.

The camera can be seen on the network for about 0,5 second once per "cycle" as mentioned above. It's directly connected to a Vista-PC with a Cat5-cable.

And also, resetting the camera is not possible.

Does your PC have a static IP Address?

Yes, I set the IP to static. Tried dynamic as well, though. :)

Try a hard reset on it if it still seems to fail to work I would recommend contacting technical support.

I've tried hard reset several times, no luck! Is there any point in trying to use tftp to upload firmware?

No.. it looks like the camera may be toast.
