PDW-F335L Firmware Update Issue
on Jul 20, 2009 at 7:16:32 pm

I need an advise regarding a firmware upgrade of the Sony XDCAM-HD PDW-F335L.

My camera and firmware details:
Model: Sony PDW-F335L
Serial No: 10435
AT: 1.00
Package: 1.76

Currently available firmware according to this address [url][/url] is:-
Package: 1.98 (According to Broadcast Products Technical Bulletin 20-2009-109),
Package: 1.96 is also available through that site, but the upgrade procedure described in the Broadcast Products Technical Bulletin 20-2009-028 states that
"Firmware can be upgraded directly to V1.96 ONLY from V1.93 or V1.95. If firmware is earlier than V1.93, upgrade to V1.95 first as described in the following technical bulletins:
PDW-F335/F355 20-2008-206
PDW-F335/F355 20-2008-209"

As my current Firmware package is V1.76, I can't upgrade to the current V1.96 or V1.98 (According to Technical Bulletin 20-2009-028). I have searched a lot for the V1.95 but its missing from the Sony site and already have been replaced by the V1.96 before my necessity reaches priority, bad luck for me.

After following the upgrade precaution I am confused and looking for the answer of the following questions:

  • What is the proper AT and PKG version required for my current firmware to be upgraded to the latest firmware V1.98?
  • Where/How can I get the proper/intermediate AT and PKG firmware to do the rest of the upgrade?
  • Do I realy need the so called MOUNTED C.BOARD, MS-69A board or Special Jig to upgrade from my current firmware version?
  • Will I have to use the older version of Memory Stick 128 MB for the upgrade job or can I use the currently available Memory Stick Pro Duo 2 GB card?

I am waiting for someone to give me some hope.
