Hi there, I am Michelle, and i am a licensed electronics professional, i see you are asking about humax hdr-fox t2, i think i can help you. I have an overall 9 years of experience in this area and have helped hundreds of customers in fixing there problems.
E-OS displays when the firmware upgrade failed and the os is the error Operating System Incorrect Operating System
solution will be to Set to back to Factory Default
During a software update, where an HDF file on USB stick is presented to a HUMAX unit, The progress of the update is monitored until completion, If an error is detected a code will be displayed on the front panel and the process will be halted, The same codes will be displayed for both Original and Customised firmware, As this is not a function of the Customised Firmware.
If you have any external hard rive connected to the box please remove it the hdd can be corrupted
Check Menu >> Settings >> System >> System Information details, They should be :-
Model Name : HDR-Fox T2 Software Version : FHTCP 1.02.XX (28 = current) Loader : a7.30 or a7.31 or a7.32 System ID : 80BC.7E00 Update Date : Date ( current = 26 May 2012) Micom Version : 9.3 Mac Address : 00:03:78:XX:XX:XX or DC:D3:21:XX:XX:XX
You could get the 'Error:E-OS' message if System ID or Mac address is displayed incorrectly
Try downloading the firmware from Humax website to a USB and install it that will fix the problem.
The error message is still on the screen
I can not use the menu button as nothing is working
un plug the power cable from the wall or ups device connected to the Humax HDR-Fox T 2.
