Well that's embarrassing, don't know how I missed that file when I was looking the first time.

Anyway here's the link and checksum for anyone else:
http://www.mikrocontroller.net/attachment/147456/DS1000EUpdate.zip
MD5: eac4f449e60e2fe3cec561cbfa543bed

(From: http://www.mikrocontroller.net/topic/261138)

Problem is I still can't get the trigger delay calibration to save between power-ups. It doesn't seem to make a difference which firmware I try.

I know this isn't very serious, but it annoys me that the scope isn't perfect.

Any ideas?

EDIT:
I've managed to sort it out now. In the end I tried FW 4.00 again and set the trigger delay calibration. Then, without powering off, I ran auto calibration and now the settings have been saved. Although the auto calibration changed them slightly, they're pretty much perfect.

we have to find out the hardware version of your unit (from the serial number or better from PCB version) and then we can fix it.

So, we did this, and it fixed the problem! Restoring the "HardVersion" to 07 (my board was marked "DEM07") allowed me to upgrade to 2.06 without the ADC offset problem that was present before when the field was blank. It seems my assumptions about the software assuming a newer hardware version were correct. My realtrigdelay/equtrigdelay were also wiped to 0 and I decided to also calibrate those -- not sure what I did originally. Thanks, drieg!
I, too have DEM07.
I have performed the hack to a DS1102E and it worked, and applied FW version 2.04.00.03 but do not have a hardware version, just jumbled characters.
When I did the serial update (I know, I know), I did accidently hit ENTER rather than ALT 000, but it seemed to take ok.
Now I am wondering if my cal data is corrupt because of the missing HW version?
How did you do it?  I see all these posts saying they had success, but NO ONE has said HOW it was done, or is this being kept a guarded method so it won't be done for fun?

That's not fair!!! leaving us in the dark as to what you did to revive your scope!
Did it involve using the JTAG connection?

Good to hear you got your baby back!

Yes, if the unit doesn't start at all, you need to reprogramm the flash either in external programmer or via JTAG (as we did in this case).

I'll update my first post with more details when I find the time...

I got the Rigol DS1052E after uploading the incorrect firmware . When you turn on the Oscilloscope , nothing is displayed only bright screen. USB does not work. Please help in the recovering the operation via JTAG or reprogramming the flash of chip.

I wanted to thank Drieg in repairing DS1052E. He sent repaired firmware, and I could upload it via JTAG and my oscilloscope alive. Direg is great and I am very grateful to him for taking the time.  : :-+

@drieg

Hi drieg,
We have a Rigol DS1052E with damaged FLASH chip (unsuccessful FW upgrade).
Also, We have a TSOP48 FLASH Programmer with ZIF socket and new flash chip (S29GL064N90TFI04),
but We don't have the flash dump that compatible with my scope HW and PCB revision.
Some texts that printed on PCB are "DEM07" and "Bulbul Mainboard Ver. 0.2 2008/05" and "10 12".
I think the HW Rev. is "07" and the PCB Rev. is "1012".
Could you help me please ?
Thanks for your help.

----------------------------------------------------

Thanks a lot drieg, my problem was solved with your help  :-+

Hi, who knows how to communicate with drieg ?
I broke my Rigol 1052E, corrupted calibration data. |O
Last time he was here November, 2016.
I left him a message, unanswered ...

Thank you, who responded. I restored my oscilloscope itself. After an unsuccessful upgrade was lost HW version=? Therefore, it is uncalibrated. The board has DE03 inscription means HW version=03. With the help of the serial interface and the command :INFO:HARDVERSION 03 value was restored.
Then I set the FW version 00.02.04.01.00 and spent calibration. Everything works fine, it cost me a few days of nerves. I agree with drieg, need to be very careful and neat, when you want something else to do.

Hello, thanks all for share your experiences and information about our Rigol oscilloscopes.

My case takes about a DS1052D wich I bought less than a year ago, finally I decided to upgrade to DS1102D and got an expensive brick.
This is DS1052D, HW version 58, FW version 00.04.02 SP1, and the serial number is DS1EU175000xxx

Obviously serial commands to change serial and model didn't work.
I tried downgrade directly using "DS1000DUpdate.RGL", the oscilloscope detected pendrive but didn't perform any flashing process.
I tried to modify the header of the FW file to identify the same version as my unit and later, but nothing happens.

Finally I decided to desolder the flash for myself, made a backup with an external programmer, and changes the serial letters (to DS1EA) and model name (DS1102D) at the binary image, but when solder again, the oscilloscope was dead :(
I retried with many images extracted from official FW upgrade files, removing the header and concatenating the 4MB image of this file with the last 4MB of my original backup wich contains serial, model name and suposed calibration data, but the oscilloscope remained dead.

Finally, I got scared and restores exactly the original backup and the oscilloscope breathed again, got back to live, but when enable any channel (analog or logic analyzer) it shows random garbage waveforms, does not matter if I connect the probes to an stable 5V, GND or test waveform pin :(
I performed many times the autocalibration procedure, this makes many tick-tick sounds, complete the progress bars, but when finished, it shows the same behaviour.

I think the factory calibration data is on flash, and I restored the original backup, so it must have this data intact.
Anyone knows how is happening inside my oscilloscope?

Thanks and greetings.
Daniel

Hello,

I have flash a wrong firmware to my old DS1042C and now it is dead, nothing works. |O
What can I do to fix my bricked scope?
Where can I find information and correct Hex-data for reprogramming the Flash?

The DS1042C board is very similar to the DS1042E Board but has only a S29GL032A flash
 (not a S29GL064 flash) and has no second front USB-Port near the serial EEPROM.

The last firmware was 02.03.16.

Can anybody help me?

Hello, When modifying DS1052E probably lost the calibration data - corrupted calibration data. Uploaded firmware 00.04.02 SP1. Interference occurs without a signal.
Please help.
Who knows how to communicate with Drieg
I apologize for the language, but I write from the translator

Can you read the flash content? You can do it via JTAG, external programmer or send me the board for repair..
