I have a 2gig system with a Control Panel and a TS1. I bought second TS1 to add after a year. The original 2 panels were running v. 1.9.X of the firmware and working just fine. The new TS-1 I bought was running 1.10X. So I thought to myself, "self, this is easy. Update the to older panels to 1.10X and everything will be fine.
Well, the updates ran fine, the units all report having 1.10X firmware, but the first hint that something was wrong was when I brought the system back up, and powered up the old TS-1, it didn’t find the CP. Neither does the new one.
So next, my self says “no big deal, just re-pair them and we’ll be good to go”. So I reset the TS-1, got the “unpaired” startup screen, and tried to pair them. No joy. So I took the new TS-1 and tried it. Also nothing.
After posting on the 2GIGForum, I removed all entries in section 04 of setup, and tried again - nothing. Next advice was maybe I damaged the XCVR2 module during the update, so tried a new one - no luck.
So, I reset the CP back to defaults, still nothing. It behaves like the radio is not working, but it began with the firmware update, and a new radio module doesn’t help. The CP talks to the rest of the sensors without any problems.
Any help is appreciated. I’m trying to avoid buying a new CP at this point, but I’m out of ideas. I’ve done this kind of thing many times over 35 years of working with computer components and systems. I’ve never had firmware updates work, but then have the hardware not perform as it’s supposed to.
