OK, so now the 720 is truly a doorstop (it's not heavy enough to be a boat anchor). Finished multiple Diagnose and Repair cycles this afternoon (until the dock said there was nothing left to repair), and now, not only will the 720 not boot up all the way, it won't even connect to the computer anymore. It will not boot past the pic of the yellow truck. The computer gives the 'USB device not recognized' error message. So I suppose I give up. Sending it to RM is not an option right now, and neither is buying a new one. I sure do miss Mark Kling!
thank you, my question was for billindelicato
since he said there is a Multi Stop button/icon to click, which you did not see it. Some Models, the 'menu' button takes you to the new UI's preference settings
This means (likely) that the battery is too low to boot or to handshake. When you have it connected to the USB of a computer - the computer does not push out enough amps to charge it. Computer USB are .5 amps and the 720 model needs 2 amps. Rand always says to have it fully charged beforehand before attempting to connect to to the PC. If the charge is below a certain percentage then you will not get it to boot past the yellow truck, and it will not be recognized by computers. Have yo plugged it into an actual wall plug or a 12 volt plug and let it charge for an hour before trying again? All of your D&R work using only the power coming from the computer USB socket will drain the battery. Jes sayin.
