Hello

As sson as I saw the Alpha version for ESDR I upgraded to v9 (from v7) and tried the ESDR3.
After that no CW output anymore. It goes to TX (with a very shor delay) but no transmit. It seems that the breakin doesn't work or something like that.
I downgraded to version 8 and to 7. But not fixed
It was working like a charm before
Is there anythimng else other than downgrading the version to go back to the initial point?

Thank you

Let me keep this thread

I have reset the radio.
Using ESDR from a different computer
I downgraded the firmware

But always the same. No CW output. Like if the Breakin doesn't work.

Unsure if this is related, as I do not use CW, however I thought I would add it here..

After I updated the firmware to v9 on my SunSDR2Pro, I had 0 power output when using TUNE button/slider when using EE3 (didn't test regular output power).

I then closed down EE3 and started up EE2. The same issue was observed, no output power.

I then went to the Options->Device->Expert tab (in EE2), and pressed the write button (after first checking the power correction numbers looked correct). After that, I had output power as expected, in both EE2 and EE3.

Odd indeed. RIchie.

Yes Ritchie, I have been fixing this all day for people (along with the lost connection error). It seems that the firmware update is not fully written in some cases and is left hanging until another write command is made. I presume these basic problems were not seen in Russia when they did their extensive testing before release.

Hey Erik.

You mean the same problem I have? No CW output
I pressed the witoe button as indicated by Ritchie, but nothing
What is al¡ways here is taht the BreakIn optiondoesn't do anything:
Even if I switch to iambic or not. Or I change the delay, whatever. Nothing changes

I would email Roman direct at EE. Tell him what you did and what has happened. I am sure he can swiftly correct the problem for you.

You mean in your setup you can get CW working via TCI in ESDR3??? Wow, that is interesting. Because neither Enzo, nor I can make it working with our TCI keyers.
What kind of TCI keyer are you using?

Regarding your issue - when switching between ESDR versions, did you try to declarativery upgrade/downgrade FW?
I.e. say you switch from ESDR3 to ESDR2, next step would be go to Options-Device-Expert and click FW Update, then wait for FW updated and reset the SunSDR.
This is the only workaround I have found. There is definitely some issue with FW, we have to wait for EE guys to fix it.

TCI works with ESDR2

I dont’t know with ESDR3

I am just trying to be as I was before

And yes I forced to downgrade. Now I am with ESDR2 update 8.
And the issue is when keying through the real connector

I opened a ticket fpr the EE guys

Tnx

After using Ver SDR3, I came back to SDR2, latest version, and found that I also had issues with the Break-in, MOX and RF output, plus the SDR2 Dx would freeze in the Transmit mode.
I'm also hearing a tone on the Monitor that disappears when the Break-in is activated.

I normally set the Amp drive using the Key and Break-in.
When I Key the Tx now the Transmit freezes and MOX stays activated.
I must deactivate Break-in and turn off, then on, ESDR2 to come back.

Confused

Hi Guys,
I think the problem is an old firmware. I used ESDR2 Software Update 8. The up to date firmware there is59.8.
The actual up to date firmware is 72.8.
I installed ESDR2 Software update 11 and automatically he asked me to update firmware. Now firmware is 72.8.
If I closed and start again ESDR3 with this new firmware CW transmit works

When I went back to SDR2 from SDR3 the FW updated to the correct 72.8 and the issue continues.
If I have "Break-in" selected and press my Key the "MOX" will come on and the ESDR screen and Mox will both freeze until I shut down ESDR.
