    TriCaster SD- Hanging on TriCaster Logo Screen(How to Restore TriCaster)

    Problem Description and Steps to Verify/Reproduce
    Standard Definition TriCaster (TriCaster 100,Pro,Studio and Broadcast) hangs on TriCaster logo screen and will not finish starting up. The solution involves restoring the unit which will flush the 'C:\' drive but leave the 'D:\' (Media) drive alone.

    Steps to Fix / Workaround

    Restoring the TriCaster.

    1. With the TriCaster powered off. Press the power button on the front, followed by pressing the “F8” key. (Doing this will bring us to a menu with OS choices.)

      Then use the arrow keys to select “Return to OS Choices” then press Enter. This will take you to the menu with options you need.)
    3. The TriCaster will now boot into and run the Restore Partition.
    4. As the restore process boots up you will receive a warning that all the data on the “C” drive will be erased. This is normal, all of your Media is stored on the “D” drive which will go untouched.

    5. If asked if you want to continue with the restoration, type “Yes” making sure to type it out with a capital “Y” and a lowercase “e” and “s”. Otherwise it will simply tell you to press Enter to begin the restoration.
    6. Once the TriCaster has finished restoring it will prompt you to turn it off. Hold the Power Button on the front of the TriCaster until it powers off.***Leave the TriCaster off at least 1 full minute before powering back on.***
