Locked Out DC55E / DC49J
« on: March 22, 2020, 08:41:46 PM »
Have a few DC55E and DC49Js.  I locked out the settings in MagicInfo to prevent tampering, including the power button and remote functions.

Uploaded an on/off schedule, but the screens never came back on, and now will not respond to the remote. 

Tried Mute - 1 - 8 - 2 - Power to perform a factory reset, but the IR indicator just flashes quickly any time it receives a signal.  Your help is appreciated.

Dear Grant,

This is a nasty situation, you need to find yourself the MDC software. Then you can connect to the screen with a Windows computer via an RS232 connection, in the MDC application, you can reset the display again.

I have heard different stories about this that it sometimes works out of the box and sometimes gives you no connection to the display but it is worth a try.

Kind regards, Pepijn.
