Interruption during USRP firmware installation

Go to solution

Hi eyeopener,

I face a problem today while I was updating the firmware and FPGA image of USRPs, I mistakenly run the labview program  and unfortunately the it stopped installation. Then I again tried to install image , but it gives me the message that "reinitialization required".


I tried it with another computer but it gets worse and now I cannot even see it in configuration utility. Also, only "F" lamp is on and all the others are off. 


Can anyone help me with this?

Hey HediAja,


As I explained you, I will post the solution here again, so that other users can refer to it if they face the same problem.


Please perform a hard reset of the USRP. First, Yo will have to reset the IP address to default. Please find below two links to the tutorials explaining how to proceed in this case.

Once you performed the hard reset, you will be able to update the firmware and the FPGA images as explained in
