@MarkCwee Just let us know what help you need, we can do it again if you prefer.
We checked them booting up before sending back.
If your doesn't, probably it's other kinds of failure rather than the BIOS.
@MINIX - Ken you have the patience of a saint
Thank you very much Ken.
Hi Ken, John Scutt sent me a msg on Oct 13 that he was sending me a new BIOS chip. This hasn't happened. I emailed him again last week and he hasn't replied.
Rather than waiting for John to respond, I think I will get the BIOS programming tools. They are hard to find on eBay, and the Amazon links do not seem to include the 1.8v converter. Do you have an Amazon link for what I should buy?
Here is what you need
flashing the bios is definitely easier that changing the chip
Merci, FKA, but "0 disponibles" (0 available)...that is why I said it is hard to find!
the other option is to buy in china and wait 3 weeks for shipping or buy separately...
Guys, I love u! Received my bricked unit today and it´s up and running again!
Great service! Was a good decision to buy a Minix.
so, after Minix solved the problem, I received the device back but I could not see anything on the TV screen (no signal hdmi).
i have replaced the cable - nothing.
different TV screen - nothing.
I went to my friends house with a different model of TV (not samsung) - and VIOLA! we can see!!
I went back to my house, to my samsung TV screen and still nothing!
I have tried connecting other devices to the TV screen (such as laptop, xbox) and they work just fine, so the problem is not in the cables......
what could be the solution here????
I AM DESPERATE! HELP!
This is very strange! There is different HDMI version. Maybe it comes from here.
It was working on the same TV before of course?
If you go back to your friend, are you able to go into the (UEFI) Bios? (Pressing delete key)
Yes, it worked before..
I can go to my friends house and press delete, but what do I do there?
I assume you tried different hdmi ports on your tv?
Tried different scaling options of your Samsung ? 16:9 / 4:3 / original ...?
Did you try a different hdmi cable ? You can try turning the hdmi cable so the tv end in the box .
You can try uninstalling the monitor in windows/device manager at your friends house , turn the box off and connect to your tv and turn it on.
I tried different hdmi ports - nothing.
I tried all the options in the TV monitor including scaling options, etc. - nothing.
I tried different cables - nothing.
The box is working or it wouldn't work at your friends house.
You tried the rest so windows remains ?
Hmm but if it is windows then you should be able to get into bios ? no windows driver needed for that
I bought it separately from Amazon:
1. FICBOX® Bios Board MX25L6405 W25Q64 USB Programmer LCD Burner CH341A Progammer for 24 25 Series
2. Signstek SOIC8 SOP8 Flash Chip IC Test Clips Socket Adpter Programmer BIOS/24/25/93
3. XINY 1.8V adapter for Iphone or motherboard 1.8V SPI Flash Memory SOP8 DIP8 W25 MX25
I have the same experience. I need to re-flash for 3 times to get the windows back.
However, I flash it with BIOS version V-1.43 instead of V-183.
The unit still running normally with V-1.43 until now.
I will flash with V-183 if the unit get bricked again.
Same problem with my Z64W:
Could you please provide the info on how to ship it to HK.
No more special handling, it ended last month.
Please send your unit back to your seller following normal RMA procedures.
I bought on Sept. 30th 2015 just it's just passed the 1 year warranty
Would it be possible to at least ship me a bios chip?
