I am unable to help with your billing issue but I can forward the question onto customer service for you.

If you have problems with the update it could be a timing issue on when you press the start/stop button sometimes it takes a while to get the sequence right.

To Update the firmware do the following.

1. Download the zip file containing the firmware to the PC

2. Unzip the downloaded zip file containing the firmware and place the files only, no folders, to the root of a memory stick.
Note: the files must be in the root of the memory stick and not inside a folder, if they're not, the update won't be performed.

3. Insert the memory stick into the USB socket to the right of the keyboard of the T3 with the power off.

4. Hold down the start/stop button while turning the power on.

5. Wait for about 2 minutes to allow the T3 to boot up and press start/stop again.

6. Wait a couple of seconds then press the start/stop button one more time.

7. Leave the keyboard for 10 minutes to carry out the firmware update.

8. Restart the T3 and you're done.
