Hello Actron Staff,
I recently purchased a cp9185 off of ebay and it was working fine until I tried to upgrade it. I had not read the instructions on how to upgrade it until after I got the dang thing stuck in program mode. It seems that no matter what I do to try too remedy the situation, nothing works. I have tried using the disc that came with it and I have downloaded your update version 4 off of your website. When I first started to upgrade it there were versions showing up on the versions available screen but I freaked out when it stated it was going to erase my current version and I pulled the plug. Now my scanner is stuck in a state of perpetual limbo.
I thought that I was moving up when I purchassed an actron which I thought would replace my current innova scanner...Boy was I wrong. I have never had any headaches with said innova. Do any of you all have any suggestions on how to fix my problem?
I have even tried to get it to show up on "my computer" when it is plugged in to format it if such a thing is possible. Sadly it does not appear though. Although it does show up In the control panel under in the device manager as "Base System Device"...Yet I am having trouble from there. It is not recognized as an Actron device.
Any help would be appreciated...
