“Upgrading Attached Peripherals” Message

Symptom

During an attempt to upgrade firmware, the display shows the message “Upgrade Attached Peripherals”. After turning the camera off and then on, the same message displays, and then prompts you to turn off the camera.

Potential Resolutions

  • Ensure that you are upgrading your camera to the newest firmware version.
  • One (1) of your modules or lens mounts (collectively known as “peripherals”) may be experiencing issues. Remove all peripherals (except for the media bay), and upgrade firmware. Then attach another peripheral, and upgrade firmware again. Repeat this process, upgrading one (1) peripheral at a time. This will identify which peripheral is experiencing issues. If there is a peripheral that will not upgrade, submit a Technical Support request.

 

"Sensor Calibration Recommended" Message

Sensor Calibration Recommended
The current sensor calibration is out of date.

Please black shade the camera. 

The "Sensor Calibration Recommended" pop-up occurs on startup when the current firmware does not support the sensor calibration file. Periodically, RED updates the calibration settings to improve image quality. This results in a mismatch when calibration files created from older firmware are loaded after a firmware upgrade. The older calibration file is then outdated, so RED recommends black shading the camera to create a calibration file that is optimized for the new firmware.
