I recently bought a 5000 off ebay. It had a flaky version on OZ on it that continually crashed. So I elected to install the latest OZ-Opie with card-fs. I downloaded the appropriate files from Henges. Copied them to a cf, changed their names, followed all the instructions to the letter. It wouldn't get past the two lights being on for more than a couple of seconds. So I tried an alternate method. By pressing I think it was the G and P and reset button to enter the diag mode. From there I went about installing from the CF. The two leds stayed on for near 2 minutes then it went back to the diag display. That is where I am now. Don't know how to get out this diag mode. I have tried leaving it unpluged from power for several days with no battery in it, hunted through every menu in that diag mode. No different. At this point I'm at a loss. This newbie needs help. I have a paper weight that has sharp written on it.

cheers,

zwf

If you could not flash your Z using the standard procedure, you most likely had a corrupt file system on your CF-card or corrupt files to flash with. Now that you have forced a flash with this existing problem you may not be able to boot your system until you flash it again with a good set of files.

You 'may' be able to get out of the diag menu by simply using the cancel/on/off button... if you haven't damaged anything.
