Lenovo Projector P0510 bricked on software update

Hi all,

 

I got this Pocket Projector, Lenovo P0510 from a friend. Plugged it in, connected to WiFi. Projector offered to update itself (warned me it could take "up to 5 mins") and I agreed. Firmware downloaded but actual update got stuck at 5%. I waited for 20mins and nothing happened, still at 5%.

 

So, I did a no-no and turned it off (how long would I have to wait, right?) and now it's bricked. If I turn it on or plug in USB power, the LED indicator lights up dimly, but that's it.

 

Tried resetting when it's "on" (holding "Home" button), tried cutting power with a pin — nothing. Anyone got any ideas for a proper hard reset, like a magic combination that would make it pick up firmware from an SD card and start afresh?

Hi. welcome to the forums.

 

I don't have that hardware, but there is a support site for it that has an image for download.

There is also a PPT for software upgrade instruccions: here , check it from slide 11.

 

uhm... I'm just checking the info and it seems that you need the projector booting to apply the update from the SD Card.

 

I don't know if it will work (I don't have this hardware) but give it a try.

 

Regards

Hi Martin,

Thanks for your suggestions. Seen those things, but it doesn't help. Projector does, indeed, need to boot first for all these things to work.

Still in limbo :-(

Hi Franky0669

 

The Projector support site is here: https://support.lenovo.com/ec/es/documents/p0510

You will finf manuals and firmware updates for the project on that page.

 

Please read the instrucctions carefully while updating the firmware.

 

If you have futher problems, please try with different machines, or an Android device, just to check if the projecto works with a different device. I'm not sure what technology is required to make that projector works on Windows 10.

 

You can also open a formal ticket with Lenovo to help you solve your issues.

http://support.lenovo.com/

 

Regards

Re: Lenovo Projector P0510 bricked on software update

Thank you it does not work unfortunately because Lenovo has not listed his own product projector P0510, you can't find it / register / no support. The reference to the firmware is already obsolete. We are FW: 3.0.0 rc320160130 (not 3.0.0-rc320151113) The projector works with Android 6.

Hi Franky.

 

You can try to open the ticket by phone:

https://support.lenovo.com/ec/es/supportphonelist

 

But if the projector is working fine on Android, maybe it is that your Windows machine does not has compatible hardware for it. I'm not sure what is required, but Lenovo has a list on the support page of the projector that says which computers are compatible with the project. Some seems to be Miracast enabled but I don't know much about it.
