Re: Firmware update Ver.1.03 for NEX-6

I've had this with a couple of Sony firmware updates recently despite following the onscreen instructions - its even happened when I've just installed an update to an app from the app store! Sometimes it just needs time to finish (can take 10 mins or more), once I had to force a hard reset using a combination of button presses (I forget which but if you search these forums for reset nex 6 youll find it) but another trick I've learnt is to force the camera to make a connection with your PC (e.g. connect the usb cable again and go to the app store and connect the camera via the button on the website or simply rerun the firmware update such that it checks the current version - this unbricked my nex 6 last week as it instantly came back to life saying no update required and was then fine).

It can be pretty scary the first time it happens though.
