    So what does it mean when all the lights go solid red and the beep turns into a steady scream.

    Running latest FW update.

    Did I just turn this thing into a brick


    Mystery solved!

    Used wrong SD, was a 4. Reloaded on a new 10 and worked fine.

    It simply means update was interrupted. Glad you figured it out. It happened to me due to turning off and back on. I just let it scream for 20 mins and the update was complete. My neighbor thought it was a smoke detector.

    Gave me the willies! Thought I was going to end up with a fancy trot line weight.
