Topcon FC-2600 install disk wanted
i have a topcon fc-2600 data collector that is froze up on start up. i am looking for an install disk that i can try to reinstall the software. does anyone out there have an install disk they could make me a copy of. i would pay you for your time and trouble to burn me a copy. let me know and thanks.
I don't remember the procedure, but figure out how to do a hard reset (maybe hold down the power key for 10+ sec). If it's like the FC-2500, the OS is on a Read-Only-Memory chip and will reload after a hard reset. Then you can download from Topcon whatever version of TopSurv or Magnet that you have a license for if you still need to reload the software. I often managed to lock my FC-2500 up so severely that I was sure it was FUBAR. A hard reset always fixed it.
holding down the on/off button is not working. Any other suggestions?
There should be a manual just for the FC-2600. If you don't have one, visit Topcon Support and download one. Figure out how to do a Hard Reset.
On the FC-2000's I think there was a hard reset button which you would press with a ball point pen in the battery compartment. Have a look in the same location for it.
