Camera is dead after Latest firmware avail for DCS-930L
« Reply #1 on: August 19, 2011, 06:03:10 PM »

I just downloaded and tried to apply the latest Firmware update to my dcs-930L.  It failed or timed out.  Now the camera is unusable.  No lights appear on the front.  I tried the hard reset, several times, holding it in for 10 seconds and upwards to a minute.  Nothing worked.  I have unplugged and replugged in the network cable on both ends several times and turned the power off and on on the router and camera several times.  Is there any advice on re-activating the camera?

We have two of these cameras; always have been utterly reliable.  My wife went to upgrade the firmware and we had the exact same thing happen as the poster above.  The software downloaded, the camera came back to life and then *nothing*.  Our camera is a little different than the poster above; our light stays solid red.  No amount of paperclip in the reset will reset anything.  And you cannot install the software because you never get a green light.

I don't know about these firmware updates; we bricked ours it looks like.  If anyone has any suggestions, please let us know.  We've tried: 

Powering off (nope!)
Reset (nope!)
Unplug power, hold reset with paper clip and then apply power (nope!)
Leave it unplugged and try all the above again (nope!)

Red solid light on the front, glowing blue in the rear.  No button response.  No reset response.  No software will download.  Have plugged it into the router and the router does NOT see it.

Think ours is bricked.

From my understanding the DCS-930L has a copy of the default FW in ROM, which should be retrievable. However, under certain circumstances, a failed FW upgrade can brick the device.

If your DCs-930L is under a year old (i.e. under warranty), I suggest you call D-Link technical support and have them walk through a recovery process. If/when that process fails, D-Link will most likely issue an RMA for a new camera.

How I rescued mine:

Have 3 cameras. Two took the 1.03 FW update no problems. One failed. (No, I didn't hard-connect them as instructed because that's just a pain in the a$$). The failed unit seemed hopeless - tried all the above but finally gave in and followed the D-link instructions at top of this thread. But note: It took many attempts to establish a connection (talk to the camera thru IE). It seems to be a timing issue - your camera has to be accepting a connection before the stinking IE handshake times out (IE sucks!). EVEN after finally getting a "Browse for your new hinky FW version" page, the FW file failed to load into the camera several times. The final success was to stick a toothpick in the 'reset hole' one last time. That worked.

I've been pretty happy with these cameras but this is the last firmware update I'll willingly try. As long as they keep working on this version - why update? I've updated twice now and seen no improvement in performance. The downside of a FW update is the above nightmare. This cost me 3 hours of aggravation I really didn't need.

Just to be clear, here are the instructions copied from above [and translated]:

Note:
A.   The Firmware Restoration only can support IE6/7/8. [might work with Mozilla but I used IE...]
B.   When you execute the Firmware Restoration, please must connect the test PC and the camera to a network by isolating the heavy network traffic. [pull your network cable or kill your Wifi adapter - connect the camera to the PC with a cable]
C.   The Firmware Restoration function is just implemented by a simple program, so we can't guarantee Firmware Restoration will be success at every time you execute. [CYA]
D.   You can follow the following steps to execute the Firmware Restoration: [or you can not follow the following steps and follow the not following steps but following the following steps is higher recommend]
I.   Connect the camera and the computer to the same network via wired connection [Yeah. Like B says - got it]
II.   If the camera is on, turn it off. [Pull power cord]
III.   Hold down the reset button and then restart the camera, and holding down the reset button for 10 seconds. [Stick your toothpick in the hole THEN plug it back in]
IV.   Configure the computer’s IP address to 192.168.0.x/255.255.255.0. [This is a MUST. Go to 'Network Connections - Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) - Properties' and (record your current settings then) change the IP and subnet mask if needed]
V.   Launch your web browser.
VI.   Enter 192.168.0.20 in the address line of your web browser, and press GO. [Juggle powering the camera up and down while re-pointing the browser to 192.168.0.20 until the damn things connect]
VII.   A dialogue box will appear. Select your desired firmware file. Click Open.
VIII.   Click Update, to update the firmware file to your camera. [When this fails 4 or 5 times, stick your toothpick in your hole again]
IX.   Restart the camera to complete the rescue operation. [If you've lead a good life, the camera will do this on it's own and even display a countdown in IE, which sucks (did I mention IE sucks?) Reset your PC's IP addresses]

I've updated twice now and seen no improvement in performance. The downside of a FW update is the above nightmare. This cost me 3 hours of aggravation I really didn't need.

I think the reason to update firmware are for the fixes listed below included w/this latest release.  I tend to agree though, if it isn't broken why attempt to fix by flashing firmware and possibly bricking your device.

Problems Resolved:
1. Under wireless is disabled, wireless will be enabled after wireless site survey.
2. Change video resolution may cause system hang if someone is live viewing.
3. Fixed download firmware crash issue – this occur when FTP upload is enabled and have a bad FTP server address setting.
4. Add “GoAhead WebServer logo” logo on the bottom-right of the home page.
5. Add some functions for production test.
6. Change copyright year to 2010-2011.
7. Fixed some web pages wording error.

With the DCS-942L/940L replacement model Dlink cameras announced, this may very well be the last firmware update for the now obsolete 930L that you have to suffer thru! ;)

The DCS-932L firmware on the mydlink website is version 1.02 build 3. The http://tsd.dlink.com.tw/ (Taiwan) website contains firmware version 1.03 build 3. The Taiwan website contains release notes describing the updates from 1.02 b3 and 1.03 b3.

If you download 1.03 b3, make sure you select the version labeled as "ww" (world wide).

Latest firmware bricked my camera also. I can' t revive it in any way.
Very disappointing by d-link to release untested firmware.
I am reconsidering buying any more products from them. >:(

The latest firmware done wirelessly from the mydlink website bricked my camera.
Now what? I cannot seem to revive it in any way

Flash the camera back to the factory defaults. While the camera is powered on, press and hold the recessed reset button on the rear of the camera with a paperclip for > 8 seconds.

This procedure will restore the camera to the factory default settings and firmware.

I have to say, that I am so glad I am not the only one with this problem. I did the exact same thing (update the firmware), and the camera, which up to that point had been working like a champ, totally bricked on me. It flashes an orange light in the front, solid blue in the back, and is totally unresponsive to resets (power on, power off, on my knees praying, etc., etc.....)

So, I will call D-Link, and hope for a refund. What a shame, I wish they had another way to resucitate the thing, I hate to go through all of this (begging, and then mailing, waiting, reinstalling....arghhh)

Thank you guys for your posts, I dont feel that unlucky or stupid now.

Happy Trails
