Have you tried the (flash.bin) recovery.

Are you seeing the LED on the USB stick flashing as you power on and flashing more as it loads the software?

When the software loads you should see USB Upg or something like that on the front panel display of the box.
You should also see "USB UpGrade, do not power off" on your TV.

You also need to use the .bin file after unpacking the .zip folder.

flash.bin recovery is done like this.

Place a copy of the unpacked software (the .bin file) on a USB stick and rename it "flash.bin"
With the USB in the unit, power on while repeat pressing "Menu" on the remote.
The unit should reload the software.

Also other users say that you must use a USB stick, not a card holder etc and that stick must be 32Gb or under.
Use the rear USB port on units that have two ports.

I have had units that will not recover.
Try using the same software as was in the unit when it crashed, not the new update software.
You must use the correct software, ie that for the V7HD for the V7HD etc, not software for any other freesat units.

Try even older software as the file for flash.bin.

Look at the LED in the USB stick. When the TV shows the message "USB Upgrade, do not turn off" you should see the LED on the USB flash as the file is loaded.
The USB LED should also flash a few times as the unit first powers on and looks at it.
Also users have said to use the rear USB port for this on V8 units.

Good luck

I have already done these steps, when I turn on the receiver and use the remote control, the message appears on the TV USB UPGRADE, Don´t turn off, but the message remains and the receiver is not updated, I have left it for almost an hour, and does not react. I don't have usb stick with led light, but I have tried several different ones, and the same thing happens

ya realize estos pasos, cuando enciendo el receptor y uso el control remoto, aparece el mensaje en la tv USB UPGRADE, Don´t turn off, pero se queda el mensaje y el receptor no se actualiza, lo he dejado casi una hora, y no reacciona. no tengo memoria usb con luz led, pero he intentado con varias diferentes, y sucede lo mismo

Others report that using a small Gb stick, 4G or lower and have only the flash.bin file on it.

Do you remember what version you had before you updated and crashed. Try using that version.

Just for the fun of it try Flash.bin with an uppercase "F" using the 12 august 2020 firmware.
Make certain that the file is not in any folder it must be on the root of the usb stick.
