I have Handheld scope VK7105 that was damaged by wrong power supply.
I manage to repair everything but microcontroller is dead (checked by swapping from other VK7105 that was borrowed).
It is PIC16C65A and I don’t have a firmware file to program new micro that I bought.
Could you please send me a firmware .hex (or binary) file so I may put back on-line this cute little device.
Sorry, for copyright reasons we never supply firmware.
As a one-time courtesy, we can offer programming of your device, if you return it to:
Velleman Projects Tech. Dept.
Legen Heirweg 33
Make sure to include a copy of this conversation.
Thanks for that.
I thought it won’t be a problem to get the file since this is an obsolete product and I pledge not to violate copyright (do a paperwork to back it up).
More reasons not to do that is availability of hand-held oscilloscope projects on the internet with freely available code. From that perspective there is no point of decompiling your code and replicate your quite complex device.
Furthermore, shipping costs from Australia to Europe are quite high making me not to send the device for repairs.
Thank you for your support.
