Hi Vinny,

Am a new user and recently bought a 3.1N ex GHL Profilux used . On starting up the controller without connecting to the PC , I receive this message :-

I am trying to follow your guide and change the language by navigating to Extras but unable to do so.

Secondly, I downloaded GCC v1.1.0 and tried to connec to my GHL Profilux 3.1 N ex via USB following the guide you have mentioned.

From page 6, but it just shows device not connected . On clicking connect, it tries connection and then throws an error message :-

Communication Error!
Error Code:41

Please help to get me started .

Abhishek

I believe the Communication Error is due to the newer version of GCC that I downloaded (v1.1.0) but my Profilux is older version. How do I know the firmware version of my Profilux so that I can download the necessary GCC .

Or even better, how do I update my Profilux version to match GCC ?

So I think I might have resolved that issue and now its asking for a PIN which I dont know and neither does the seller remember . This is what its asking on clicking connect :-

How do I reset the pin and bring everything to factory settings since the profilux too showing the pin issue and am not able to switch teh language to English?

First, you should try deactivating the pin code lock..

The following procedure may work, no?

"switch off the device ( disconnect the power supply), switch on again (
plug in the voltage supply again). Immediately, while the status and greetings are
displayed, press Esc and RETURN simultaneously. Are you going to delete the PIN? asked. After confirmation with Yes, the PIN is again in the delivery state (0000 - deactivated)."

Which Firmware does your ProfiLux 3 currently have?

Had a call with Vinny . Problem is I could not even switch to English.
Vinny suggested to run emergency update on the profilux with latest firmware of 6.29.
Followed the procedure and emergency update was successful .
However, on switching it back on it throws a new error - Memory Defective

If I go to EXTRAS , its still asking to ENTER PIN .

Sent the mail to Vinny to update him about the situation. I have a feeling that the memory itself has to be changed which is not good at all.

Tried it , didnot work . Didn't know the firmware version as I could not change language and it never showed teh firmware at start up. now its up to date with 6.29.
