Does anyone know how to do a factory reset of the JBL DSC260 please?
I have found reference to holding down the #5 and #6 and Recall keys on power up, but although it does open normally hidden Test Procedure Menus, and a way of Deleting everything on it, it has no clues on how to bring back all the Factory Settings.

Any help would be immensely appreciated.

That's what got me into this mess…. :(
I dumped all, and got left with an empty memory.
From wot I've found in the last 10 minutes, is I may need to do a firmware upgrade, but because of the age of the unit, it needs to be done via the rs-232 port, which can only be done via a PC, and all I have are Macs, and one PC laptop, that has only usb ports.
I guess I fluffed it! :(

usb to serial cables are pretty common.


isn't this what you want ?

button will start a Factory Reset (All User Programs will become
copies of the Factory Programs, all Utility settings will be defaulted, and all Security settings will be defaulted).

Which button?
Where did you see that? [It's not mentioned in the Manual I have or is it?]
That's exactly what I want…..

So far, I'm just getting really confused by it all.

I do have a usb to rs232 cable but it's male, and needs to be female.
I also then made a fm to fm rs232, and hooked it up, but the 'other' pc I have here is Win 7, and the firmware only works ONLY with 98.Now I'm trying to find an old 98 installer. God knows where THAT is, so I'm trying to d/l a copy now.

I'll know how I go hopefully by the end of the day.

might be able to install under win7 with a Win98 'compatibility mode' and have the firmware updater code run...

Thanx heaps, but sadly, still get the same non-compatability alert….. :(
Must be something missing on this PC in the way of a driver. Not that I remember much about PC's anymore.
See wot happens when I install a real 98 OS on another partition.

Unfortunately Tom, all those are for the Driverack, and don't work for the JBL. :(

Win98?? Can you even DO anything with Win98 these days??
I thought Win-XP was the least of these any more.

It seems to be the only Windows OS ['cept for Win 3.x] that you can get the JBL DSC260 Firmware to work Heather. :(

Guess you're right - the manual seems to be dated 1997!
