Failed firmware update

Your help please folks.
Updating to the latest fujifilm firmware on the V6ii gave an error message and a non functioning trigger. Is there anything I can do myself to resurrect it or will it have to go to a dealer.
It's 3 months old so I presume warranty covers manufacturers updates


  • Hello,

    Can you turn the V6II on? Is it completely black screen?

    The error message may be from the updater, not from the V6II. If you can power up the V6II, please check the firmware version under <preference> in the menu. 

    All the best,

  • Same thing happened with my V6 II  unit.

    I bought 2 brand new V6II units one of them never recovered after trying to FW update. 
  • This is now fixed. 

    Get the Updater V3.02.
