Failed firmware update & how to fix?

So after spending the last 24h trying to work out why my ESS is not working, I have come to the conclusion that the firmware update filed. Does any one have a guide on ho to start again with a firm ware update? I did find one guide but it requires me to download my VE config file and load it into the VE Bus System configurator which doesn't work as the file types are not correct for VE Bus System config.

How do you want to do the update on the inverter? I am assuming you have a VEbus device here.

Over vrm or locally with an Mk3.

Over VRM. I have been using VRM for everything, it keeps the physical install tidy.

The manual for the inverter update over the vrm is here.

What part failed? The firmware update or the config file upload?

I think the config file upload as there system is not operating any different after config upload.

You can redownload the config to check it.

Go to the devices list, remote ve configure, just above the firmware update option

@Alexandra I am still having issues. As far as I can tell, I need the .rvms file to configure in VE Bus System Config, but I do not have the .rvms file. The only file I seem able to download is the .rvse file which I can only open in VE Configurator 3. Any help would be appreciated here as I can not find a way past this, even with spending all day readying up on firmware update and how to correct a failed firmware update.

You can reprogram from scratch using the remote configure, unless you have 3 phase or split or one of the more complex systems.

Download the remote file, change settings. Save it. Then upload the file to the device. I have done quite a few like this.

All you need to know are your battery capacity settings, and bulk and float settings.

The run the ess assistant.

If you have compatible batteries there will be a manual for them.on the victron site.

Hi @Alexandra I have downloaded the rvsc file from the VRM portal, checked within VE configure 3 and uploaded via the VTM portal several times. The ESS assistant has been included every time with each upload. I feel there is a setting locked from when I did the firmware update that I can not access.
