ASI 120 MC -- Firmware upgraded

Postby vivien_ » Sat Aug 26, 2017 9:18 am

Hi,

I worry about my ASI 120 MC's firmware update.
(USB2)

Before, I saw in /var/log/kernel.log

Aug 21 14:23:15 outils-T61 kernel: [48753.097018] usb 2-2: Product: ASI120MC
Aug 21 14:23:15 outils-T61 kernel: [48753.097022] usb 2-2: Manufacturer: ZWOptical company
Aug 21 14:30:10 outils-T61 kernel: [49167.968994] usb 2-1: New USB device found, [b][b]idVendor=03c3, idProduct=120b[/b][/b]

I catch the firmware here :

https://astronomy-imaging-camera.com/so ... b2.tar.bz2

And after the code below :

./zwo_FWTool_USB2 -i ../firmware/ASI120MC-compatible.iic -t li2c

I see in /var/log/kernel.log :

[52243.008754] usb 1-3: New USB device found, idVendor=16c0, idProduct=296d
[52243.008756] usb 1-3: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=0
[52243.008757] usb 1-3: Product: QHY5-CMOS
[52243.008758] usb 1-3: Manufacturer: QHY_CAMS

What a crazy migration ? From ASI to QHY5 !
And, I can't go back to the latest state.

Can you help me, please ?
Thanks in advance.

It's impossible, we don't have QHY's firmware, did you connect another QHY's camera to your PC at that time? you can use command "lsusb" to check the VID and PID of usb devices

I agree with you : it's impossible.

But in facts, i have no QHY's CCD. I have just only an ASI 120 COLOR USB2.

After the upgraded described below, my ASI CCD have new configuration :
idVendor=16c0, idProduct=296d

And the lsusb told me it-s a QHY CCD.

Please, help me,
Thanks a lot,
Vivien

Hi all,
We have a conjecture. If you used QHY device on Linux systems before. when the update, because we must put the device back to the original state at first. At this time, because we and QHY use the same USB chip, QHY may also identify to the original state of the equipment. Because their firmware loading method is loaded at working, So they will be faster than our download firmware, so it mistakenly loads the QHY firmware into the our device.

Don't worry。
Please provide the idVendor and idProduct after your error。 I will offer you a new pkg, then you can use this new pkg to update it.
Thanks
