Hi Tatel,

I finally did it! I got the original Firmware from Hantek. This doesnt contain any code changes (older version) which demands unfindable libraries.

The problem, why it didnt work before is that, since the posted solution you referred to, the firmware has been changed with a newer library which tells the update code to look for a newer set of libraries. These probably chanced in the newer version of the Linux Kernell.

Thanks so much again for helping me! Greetings! Hugo

Hello,


This is my first post on this forum. I have bought a refurbished DSO5202p on ebay and the seller just sent me a message that the device actually does not start, it only displays the attached image.


Pressing F1 and F2 does not fix anything.

The thing is that the seller offered to refund 50% of the price in case I decide to accept the oscilloscope and fix it myself.

Is there anything I can do with this error?

What are you paying for it?

It might be fixable but there is no guarantee. If you are a bit handy you can enter the internal works and reset the kernel but i woundnt recommend it if you are new to electronics

Greetings Hugo
Ps DM me if you need some tips

It would be 173 GBP (including shipping and customs fee)

Just for the oscilloscope, price is 118 GBP (with the 50% refund)


I have some electronics knowledge but I am no expert.

Personally I think that’s quite much. How much would you pay for a new one? Where I live it would be about €400,-. The transport is what’s making it a high price.

If you decide to buy it. I’d like to help you fix it. Keep me posted if you buy it. DM me for a step by step guide . Btw; ever worked with serial communication through RX & TX?

Just send an email to Hantek, they will reply to you with a file to restore the partition (using the F3 option).

I saw the same problem many times with the DSO4000 and DSO4004 series.

To which email are you sending the message?

You can also try their official support forum. There's already a thread about the same issue: https://www.eediscuss.com/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=15164&extra=

but sometimes I find it is easier to open a new one, I think the moderators do not check the older threads and new requests go unanswered.

So far no answers on hantek forum and any of the emails. Probably they do not have a solution because there is another thread there about the DSO5102 and the answers there are pretty quick.

I am waiting for the oscilloscope to arrive from the UK and see what I can do next.

Just hope I do not end up with a bricked device.

Hello, I'm new on this forum and went through this long thread (days of reading) since I've a problem with my DSO-1062D from Voltcraft. As many others on this forum, I did a firmware update (downloaded the files on http://voltcraftdownload.info/Default.aspx?modelno=DSO-1062D), after that my scope was stuck. Unlikely I haven't done the backup before the firmware update :palm:.
After so much reading and following some suggested recovery procedure on this thread, that's the situation: on teraterm (ttl to usb adapter connected and working well) I have this message:

System Volume Information        tekwayup_client
dso5kb_func_dso5062b20180226.up
ls: /mnt/udisk/system*.up: No such file or directory

and the display says "Please insert the USB device with update files which can be obtained from the supplier"
Please, can anyone help me?

Anybody has old firmwares for Hantek DSO5202B (or any DSO5000B series)?

I've updated to the latest firmware from hantek.com and it bricked my scope. Seems like the latest update package has some files missing which were introduced in an in-between version. (My error is /dso.exe: error while loading shared libraries: libgstreamer-1.0.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)

Unfortunately Hantek does not keep old versions on their website. If anybody has an older update which happens to have the libgstreamer files I may be able to unbrick my scope with them.

Hello, I'm continously cehcking for a replay since a month  :'( .
Is there anyone who can kindly help me ? My oscilloscope is completely stuck and need it in my own lab.
It might be very appreciated if anyone could share the original firmware files for the DSO-1062D or give me some advice.
Thanks

This quite probably means you are too lazy to do a search and smart enough to try to get others working for you.

All I will say is: solution for your problem is just *one* page away... or one forum search away.

EDIT 1: My bad, at the top of this very same page you can see how Blindelinx was able to get good firmware from Hantek for his Volcraft 'scope. Hantek, Volcraft, Tekway... all is the same hardware, sold under different brand and model names.

Your 'scope is saying you that it can't find the USB with the firmware update and asking you "please insert a USB with the firmware update". It doesn't look as if you cared about what your scope is saying. Try to put a USB stick with good firmware in your 'scope. Are you sure you did read the entire thread? I find it very difficult to believe... No wonder nobody replied to you.

Just the same problem that Blindelinx got. Did you read the entire thread, too? At the very least Blindelinx was able to get what you seem unable to find just some days after. Again, no wonder nobody replied to you...

EDIT 2: rogue quotes

Still hoping to resurrect this long-running thread - does anyone have a memory map of what I/O is connected to which scope function, the FPGA logic analyzer board connector pinout, etc.? It'd be lovely to replace the closed-source GUI software with something better, particularly since these MSO507x series scopes are no longer in production or supported.

In the german mikrocontroller.net forum you can find schematics, also for the LA board:
https://www.mikrocontroller.net/articles/Tekway_MSO#Downloads

In the first post in this thread, you will also find a 1drive link from tinhead with more files.

Hello Tatel, I'm sorry I gave the impression to be lazy. The truth is that I'm not good at english writing and just tried to write as little as possible and went straight to what I supposed could be the solution to my situation. Here is all the story: after intalling the Voltcraft update, the scope was stuck and after a restart it was just showing a black screen and emitting a continous sound from the inner buzzer. Going through this thread (belive me, I read all of it) I aquired tons of useful information and was able to find the uart port on the pcb (thanks to pictures and schematics), connect the scope to my PC and I discovered that many scopes has the same hardware with different names. I got the Blindelinx experience and after serching the Hantek equivalent model I got the firmware from Hantek web site. After installing the new firmware (via uart) I went to the situation I wrote in my post. Any oder attempt failed. At this point, I tried to ask for the original Voltcrat files beliving it could be the only way to resuscitate the scope.
Anyway, I'm going to send the scope to the local Voltcraft dialer for a software repair tomorrow.
Bye
Francesco

ls: /mnt/udisk/system*.up: No such file or directory

The system can't find any file called system(anything).up in the /mnt/udisk directory.

/mnt/udisk seems to be the directory where your system expects to find firmware upgrade files. When you put your USB stick on the scope, the contents of the USB stick should appear in that directory.

It doesn't find any file callled "system(probably a number or reference).up", which would be the firmware update. * is a wildcard that means "anything".

So probably your USB stick doesn't have any FW update file. It could be that the system doesn't take your USB but I think you would get a mount error should that be the case. Having the complete output from teraterm/putty would help. Maybe your USB stick is too big (>4 GB) or is not FAT32 formatted. But I think probably that firmware upgrade file just is not there.

Using teraterm/putty you could give this command

ls /mnt/udisk

This should return a list with the files/directories under /mnt/udisk. Maybe your system*.up file is under a directory or still compressed or...
I don't know what. It should be on the first level of your USB stick

I think you probably don't have any linux experience and screwed some command or some procedure step. Please follow the instructions found in this post:

https://www.eevblog.com/forum/repair/voltcraft-dso-1102d/msg2036896/#msg2036896

These are the instructions that Blindelinx followed. He also claimed not having any linux experience. Please note that these instructions, as Blindelinx said, seem to be using a not-so-good firmware update file. You have to use the original firmware from Hantek instead as he did. Probably having that original firmware update systemXXXXXX.up in the first level of a good USB stick is all that is needed.

Please note that if you screw some command and give instead a command that will delete, say, anything, linux will not ask "Are you sure?" before executing that screwed up command. So be careful, and, if not sure you can do it, please go to the dealer.

If your system is able to return a "file not found" error it means that Linux is running so you'll have a functional oscilloscope as soon as a good firmware update is loaded into it.

Good luck

I tried to restore my DSO5102P to default values, but it seems my backups were wrong to begin with.
There is some serious outdated information in this topic, that's a bummer.

I also have 4 backup NAND partitions, I should have had 8 partitions. Sizes are boot 1024, kernel 2048, logo 512 and root 512 KB.

So I did a restore of all partitions (because my serial nr was suddenly gone) in the process.

the scope seems to be working fine, but my question is, can I have demolished something hidden what I don't see right now?
In the end my scope is now showing all the correct data again, serial no. and it shows it is a DSO5202P and it is calibrating.

But I don't trust my own restore action with a way to small root partition I did somewhere in the proces.

Btw, it is showing a "*** Warning - bad CRC, using default environment" booting up, don't know if that was there before.
