      My bad

      I'm wondering if he installed his software CF card in the top slot, instead of in the left side slot. If he did that, the Modis may well have erased all the software data files.
      My post above is irrelevant, as I forgot that he has a Solus Ultra. My comments relate only to the older Modis Elite.

        If you push Y and N buttons simultaneous an push and hold start button for a few seconds you enter service menu. Here you select GEP2011 and the scanner will load whatever is available. If that is not working you probably erased all data.

          some one should clone a fresh update card and see if itll boot on any scanner... if it work we could fix a couple of legacy scanners and get them up to date

            But the tool still can't boot from the card .
            my tool doesn't have 2 slots .only 1

            I have the same problem, I would know if you did can solve it, or a least archive get the files show in this link.

              Part of the confusion is that he keeps referring to SD card. To my knowledge, no Solus variants ever used an SD card. The original Solus used 2 CF cards, the Pro used 1 CF card for data storage as all programming software was stored internally (no removeable card for updates) and the Solus Ultra used 1 microSD card. I suspect his uses the microSD card. I would contact Snap-On to find how to correct the issue; perhaps he could just send them the card and they'll offer to replace it with the same version software for a nominal fee.

                  Sounds like it has a bad battery for starters. Maybe a cheap portable 12 V external lith ion battery that has a connector that fits the AC charge adapter port could stabilize the voltage better than just plugging in the AC power adapter.
                  If that don't work, see what tech support can offer in the way of help with your device. You do not want to buy a new battery and a new update now and then find out you still need to send the unit out for repair when you could have upgraded. Ask Snappy Tech support if they can guide you on what you can do to get a fresh install of your existing hardware level and see if you can get thing to working right without issue before buying a new battery and updating
