    Did you follow Msinger's firmware installation instructions below exactly?

    What P3 model? What Firmware version were you on before attempting the update? Which Firmware are you attempting to install?

    Did you check the SD card and review the results file for any errors?

    I suspect that the battery was not updated correctly and the firmware installed failed. You may want to install again and wait for a solid green light on the gimbal before turning the drone off.

    I agree with Tcope. Try re-installing following the instructions above exactly. Should take 15-20 minutes.

    Hi.
    I have the same problem exept that i update 4 of my 5 batteries and then it happens. The 2 center lights stays on.
    So if it has work for four, why not the fifth? because it was done the same way.
