ekoneuno: Nothing for Fortec Classic. If you believe in miracles, then a miracle did occur yesterday with the extinct but now not so extinct Ariza 700. So a miracle might happen.

damdoom: Do you see b75 flashing accros? You should see that if you do not click on "Write", and then it should stop at some point and say "ON".
If you see that then you are OK.
You should next try to load an older jvvh BIN like jvvh_213. This time wait for "b" to come on and then click write. Finish the Burn, and wait till the b75 dance is over and then wait for "ON" to come. Switch off
Now install CS_224T the same way. as jvvh_213.

You can buy a straight F/F RS232 cable from Radio Shack or similar place or you can buy a M/F null adaptor and use it in series with your current null cable.

What is the purpose of the 213 Bin if it is only recommended?
