OWON firmware update gone wrong, help! :(
« on: May 17, 2019, 03:49:53 pm »
Dear friends,
I am new here, just learned about this blog a few hours ago. I have an OWON SDS71021211874 and I am happy with it, for me basic noob researcher it was fine. The problem is I tried to update its firmware and things didnt work out well... It runs, but the characters are messed up, the help page and menus are unreadable. How could I some this? Could any of you please share a light? Please!  :-BROKE

Perhaps you have inadvertently changed the display language.
There is at least one Youtube video showing how to change the language.

That is indeed correct. After an upgrade the scope defaults to chineese

Thank you very much for your replies. The sad part is, it's not chinese characters, it's just a bunch of dots forming a square pattern next to the decimal values. If I touch the HELP key, it is full of "screen polution" not any type of language from us humans... I will take a picture to show you exactly what I mean by that... Thank you again for your reply! I hope I can get my scope back into working condition, because I am a researcher who works on volunteers with spinal cord injuries (paraplegic and tetraplegic patients) and without a working scope I have to cancel all the agenda. This is very sad for me.

Insert a photo. And tell us the file that you used for the upgrade.

Owon has too many firmware variants for the same scope. I guess there's different hardware inside the same models. Did you get the firmware specifically for your model SDS71021211?
