Yes. Just mail me.

For everyone with an Arnova:  The original firmware has a timebomb.
It will stop working at some point in time. In that case it hangs on the logo.
You can install the listenlive firmware and the recovery mode. If it then crashes, you can recover.
Otherwise the device need to be fixed with special tools.

Hello William (?)
I have an Arnova KMP511 Internet radio.
It has the problem where the Logo comes and goes and that is all. I think you call it "blocked".
I am not a computer expert .
Can you send me details as to exactly which firmware (name and version) to download
exactly where to find it
and how to do the loading to the Arnova Box.
many thanks
Steve
ps a reply in english is preferred.

The Arnova does not natively have the recovery mode installed.
So if you never installed the recovery mode on it, then the only way to fix such a device is from the inside with a special interface and special software.
Pretty much how they do it in the factory.
For this the device needs to be opened. For the Arnova it means that the black metal plates covering the speakers has to be lifted and closing this is very hard without leaving marks.
For the Arnova there is a 50% chance that it can be fixed this way..
In the past I use to fix Arnova's for people, I did this for free (just asking for postage) but spending in some cases 4 to 8 hours to get the device fixed is simply not worth it.
Other brands do not have the "arnova" problems and have a much higher fix rate.. close to 99%.

I can assist when people try to fix it themselves. But keep in mind that you need technical skills, including knowledge on operating systems and soldering skills.

There are no instructions that will fit all. It largely depends on the current state. Each following step is determined after knowing how the previous step worked.

As for equipment, you need an interface to convert the rs232 levels of a PC to the serial port levels of the device (based on a max232 chip).
The interface is standard and the circuit can be found on various sites. Ready made interfaces are available via ebay etc.

Note that with just an interface you can not do much. You will need software too and this is the realyl difficult part as there is no way in telling in advance what has to be applied where and when.

After software upgrading of Arnova Web Radio & TV (original firmware v. 1.8.5, RM 003, KMP 511.2.1) my radio died.

When I switch it on I can see only text "Welcome to the Listenlive Loader v2.0" and table with 7 options, of which only 2 are available (5: System information and 7: Power off). After choosing option 5 appears long text (details about device... it will help to identify the exact hardware... use the ListenLive forum to check details and get help...).

After pressing OK button I can see:

CPU: JZ47545
Speed: 378 MHz
MMC Device type
Unknown OOB size
Reboot in 3 minutes...

After rebooting everything goes again in the same way.

But sometimes I am able to choose other options. After choosing 1: Regular Firmware update from SD radio said "There is no SD" or something so although the SD card with "update/firmware.bit" file was correctly inserted.


Radio is unusable. Do I have to throw it away or is there any solution?

Thanks for answer.

The Arnovas are getting older and older.. and thus more risk they are damaged by the timebomb in the Original firmware.

After installing the bootloader it might be wise to first install the receovery mode if available for that model..
then do firmware updates..

You can only fix the Arnova if you have previously (before it went dead) installed the recovery mode.
If you have not installed the recovery mode the Arnova needs to be opened and it will cost far more time and efferts to fix it than the value of the device itself.

It largly depends on the issue. In some cases the only way to fix the device would be to write a full image back.

However, we do not have full images for each and every model.

Connect the serial port and send me a log.

Read about the killerbug.
In most cases it will be pretty hard to get your Arnova fixed.
It can be done but takes a lot of time which the device is probably not worth.

The Arnova does not have a recovery mode installed.
It is very difficult, if not impossible to fix it.

 I learned from a friend that he tried himself to flash your firmware. But instead ROM1 flashed ROM3. I'm not bad longer process with a soldering iron and have the basics of electronics. Maybe there is a way to restore working capacity of this gadget with the account of my abilities.

From about 90% of all the models that are around, there are no contents of the various sections.
On top of that there is instability of the flash memory driver making it really hard to fix the thing.

Using an image of another device will only work if you find the exact same model.
For arnova there are like 6 or 7 models around with differences in flash and lcd panel.

In the past I used to fix these devices. But they were simply not worth spending like 2 weeks on a single device...

Of course you can give it a shot.

Your device is already having problems.

Possibly there is an issue with the power supply.. in any case, it has corrupted the flash memory contents already.

If you perform a firmware upgrade it will most likely be completely dead..

One thing you could try is to instal the loader and then the ListenLive recovery method.
If that worked you can recover the device and you might be lucky enough that it works again.
All information on the recovery mode is on the forum already.

Note that the recovery mode can only be done on the firast generation devices. It will not work on newer devices.

English:

Hello,

id did not use my Archos Arnova KMP511 (the numbers beneath the barcode are KM1 041 03196) for years. When i turned it on some days ago after the Arnova Logo the start screen appears. Under "Internet radio & TV" there is a plug sybol left, the world in the center and a blue arrow right. Right down beneath there is an alarm clock symbol 1, an alarm clock symbol 2 and a WLAN (WiFi) Symbol showing a red x. I can only turn it on and off, the other buttons seem not to react. Is there a chance to reactivate my device?

Thanks for help,

Joachim


German:

Hallo,

mein Archos Arnova KMP511 (unter dem Strichcode steht KM1 041 03196) war Jahre nicht in Betrieb. Als ich es vor einiger Zeit einschaltete, kam das Arnova-Logo und danach der Startbildschirm mit "Internet radio & TV, einem Steckersymbol links, der Weltkugel in der Mitte und einem blauen Pfeil rechts. Unten sind zwei Wecksersymbole (Wecker 1, Wecker 2) und ein W-LAN-Symbol, neben dem sich ein rotes X befindet. Das einzige, was ich machen kann, ist das Radio auszuschalten, alle anderen Knöpfe reagieren nicht. Gibt es eine Chance, das Gerät noch zu retten?

Vielen Dank für eine eventuelle Hilfe,

Joachim

There is random memory corruption on the flash memory. 
So it is impossible to predict what is damaged and what to do.
