5667 Solid LEDs

Is there a way to recover firmware destroyed by improper reset of this unit. The power, usb, and ethernet LEDs are on solid. A console cable can be configured, but the pinout appears reversed as described in the 5660 diagram, ie 3 pins on the right, 2 on the left, with the notch up and the lobe down. P# 060-5667-501
Thanks for any info.

Doc, I have to tell you how much I appreciate the info. I found the file in an old Broadband archive, downloaded it, and went through the transmission of the file without issue. Upon typing "quit", the response was "PP image overruns SDRAM PPend = (0x726ead67 SDRAM size = 0x00800000) Flash Boot Failed."

Any ideas?
Thanks again.

BTW, this is a result of multiple reset button attempts on the modem. There are no flashing led's, just solid power, usb and ethernet are lit.

Are you sure it is kaput? If Telnet still works, does the web interface still work?

Doc,
I have no access to the web interface. I also noticed a message indicating "No or bad ATMOS images" in console mode.
BTW, I noticed a command in the console language that indicates the flash may be bootable from USB. Is that possible?
