Bit of a problem - I am trying to update this now - darn cold out in the shed -10 F  ( -23 c ) Both updates seemed to go okay from the laptop . But nothing showing on the MNGP which I had remote in the nice warm camper. I took it out to the shed and did VMM ( only way to hold buttons in and power on at same time) It asked to verify battery voltage, then charging voltage, and time but after that stuck on screen
  Sending Data
 4136 502

Tried VMM again same results.
Local Status App connects up and shows updated firmware.1923 classic    1839 network 
I guess I will try to upload MNGP update again soon as my fingers and toes warm up a bit.

Finally !  Got it working 1933 MNGP 1/8/2015 1923 Classic 12/18/14  1839 Network

I had reloaded 1849 but had same no MNGP stuck screen. Finally noticed the How to reboot with jumpers info on Firmware update page and tried that and MNGP finally got unstuck and loaded. I then installed the newest Rev 1933 updates and had to do the jumper reboots again - for some reason the VMM left and right arrow buttons won't work for me now.

So a few hours after I started  - alls well that ends well . If I wasn't doing all that running back and forth to the shed  I probably would have just been sitting around by the woodstove being unproductive.

So you are saying the MNGP VMM doesn't work at all or it gets Stuck?

MNGP working fine now - was stuck trying to send down data like you mentioned in other thread post. If power was reset MNGP would go to Solar , setpoints, time setup again but then get stuck on the Sending Data screen and not respond to any button pushes. 

The hard reset with the 4th and 1st jumpers inside the Classic let it go through same setup but then it worked properly on Sending Data and after that MNGP and Classic worked normally again.

I just Bricked two Classics here,  same as CL Crazy noted hangs "Sending Data"  in the Time update screen.

Have Uninstalled the 4.62 file,  and reloaded it onto the Laptop,  but  perhaps need to Hard Boot the Classics,  as noted -- yes,  did VMM,  am using the latest Production FW -- 1-8-15.

These two Classics S/N in the 1800 range.   FWIW,  Any one else having this issue?

OK,  did purge the previous u/d file,  and reloaded the latest Production FW again.

Re-Updated both the Classic 150 and MNGP FW,  and it again gets hung sending data from the Time of day menu,  still

The Lite VMM is totally new to me,  and the precise EXACT way to do that is not clear,  from searches on this site.

Did install the #1  and  #4 jumper blocks,  couple of LEDs did lite,   but,  of course,  it is not clear if there is a sequence of install,  and removing said jumpers,  and what would be the duration?  And,  does one power-cycle the Classic,  and if so,  what is the sequence of that ...  have NO Cl Lites here,  so  when the MNGP hangs,  do not know what to do,  and in what exact sequence ...

Wish that there was a straightforward way to simply revert to the April 2014 FW.

Have never had FW Update issues,  after getting the Com 8 stuff done on this same Laptop ...   Any guidance appreciated.   Thanks    Vic
