  • AIM Recovery Procedure

    Question: When i turn it on nothing happens, and only white screen glow. I've tried to reload it a few times, but it stays the same.

    Answer:
    This document describes the procedure to recover the AIM meter due to
    an improper firmware install or a firmware crash. With this procedure you may be
    able to recover the device, but in some cases the unit may have to be sent to
    Trilithic for repair. These instructions must be followed exactly and followed step by-
    step. Good luck!

    AIM Recovery Procedure

    This document describes the procedure to recover the AIM meter due toan improper firmware install or a firmware crash. With this procedure you may beable to recover the device, but in some cases the unit may have to be sent toTrilithic for repair. These instructions must be followed exactly and followed step-by-step. Good luck!


    Step 1: You must have a USB drive that is formatted FAT 32 Full. To dothis place a USB stick in the computer. Go to Start, Computer, and right-click onthe USB drive. Make sure you are on the right drive. If you format the wrong driveyou may damage your computer. After right-clicking on the USB drive, selectFormat. Select FAT 32 and uncheck Quick Format. You will lose any data on thedrive so remove what you want to save before formatting. Select Start. This willtake several minutes.

    Step 2: Go to the following website and download the following files to theDesktop of you PC:

    http://ftp.trilithic.com
    Account: Support7
    Password: trilithic

    Right-click on AIM Recovery File.zip and select Download File. When prompted,Save the file to the desktop. When downloaded, right-click and select Extract All.You should now have a folder named AIM Recovery File.
    Step 3: Open the folder AIM Recovery File and inside there should be threefolders: AIM Recovery, AIM 1.5, and AIM 2.2. Open the Folder AIM Recoveryand copy the contents onto the USB drive that was just formatted. The root driveof the USB stick should look like this:

    Step 4: While the AIM is OFF, place the USB drive in the meter. It is betterto have the AIM not plugged into power as well.

    **Do Not Remove the USB Driveuntil instructed to do so in this manual**

    Press and hold the 1, 3, Back, Function, and Power button all at thesame time until the unit starts rapidly beeping.
    Wait. The unit will reboot and the DirecTV screen will appear.Plug the charger into the AIM.
    Press OK to begin recovery.

    The AIM will load firmware version 1.4.

    Wait until the firmware is loaded and the unit completely boots up.When finished, turn the unit completely off.
    Remove the USB drive from the meter.

    **Note: If the unit still has a blank screen, double check steps 1through 3 and retry step 4. If it still has a blank screen the unit willhave to be returned for repair.


    Step 5:
    contents of this folder onto a USB drive. If you have reached this point you canuse the same USB stick as before, just delete all the files on the drive beforecopying the new files onto it. The drive should now look like this:


    In the folder AIM Recover File, open the folder AIM 1.5.

    Step 6:
    Turn on the AIM Meter.
    After boot up, press the Config button and select FirmwareUpgrade.
    Select Application and Database.
    Plug the AIM into power if not already and place USB stick with AIM1.5 firmware in the meter.
    **Do Not Remove the USB Drive untilinstructed to do so in this manual**

    Wait 45 seconds.Press OK.


    The meter will reboot after the upgrade is complete. Wait until it isfully rebooted.

    Turn the meter completely off.

    Wait 15 seconds and remove the USB drive from the meter.The meter will now have firmware version 1.5

    Repeat steps 5 and 6 using the folder AIM 2.2 instead of AIM 1.5.This will update the firmware to the latest version.
