Hello, I have recently been given a pair of Martin MX 1 intelligent lights that have an issue. The Gobo motor runs through its cycle but then freezes at the last scene. It won't switch to reverse. I researched and found there was a firmware update that fixed the issue however the link is no longer in service. I realize these lights are very old but everything else on them works great! I would appreciate any help in locating the files I need and any info on how to transfer the files to the lights. Thank you

I can try to track down the firmware on a server in Denmark, but it will not help you unless you have access to a really old tool, called the AVR programmer. It uses a serial port connection for the firmware upload.

You could ask a company like LightParts in Austin if they may be able to help you, they provide service for many discontinued Martin products and are very helpful. However the cost of shipping fixtures to them may be prohibitive.
