Did anyone elses unit come with scratches on their screen? It seems that the Godox screens scratch really easily. I have an X1T that is very scratched as well.


Have to ask... Did you take off the protective cover when you got it? The protective cover scratches really easy and I've heard of people thinking it was the screen that had been scratched when it was just the protective cover.

Nooo... There is no way that they could cut a screen cover that perfectly that you could not tell it was a screen cover... right?:oops:

Can't find any videos for update instructions on a Mac. After downloading the files, it seems to be an .exe file. Doesn't seem to work with Windows?

Installer only runs on Windows. That has been known and grumbled about since the beginning.

Several people have been successful using Windows as a virtual machine on a Mac. I found a ThinkPad that was as about the same price as software to install windows on my MacBook Pro so just bought it to use as an update machine.

Just tried on my windows computer and it didn't recognize it. Maybe it's a bad cable. Will try again.
Thanks

Just updated my 4 200s.
First cable I tried the 200 was not recognized.
Tried another cable and it worked perfectly.

Also, the battery has to be out and the test button pressed for 2 seconds to make sure the flash is cleared of any charge.

Can you confirm that the firmware AD200 USB cable is not a Mini or Micro USB but a Male to Male USB A type cable?

Hello:

I updated my AD200 and used a cable like this one: https://www.amazon.com …&keywords=micro​+usb+cable (external link)

You need to connect to the AD200's mini USB port. Follow the instructions that come with the software updater, remove battery and discharge your AD200.

Regards.

Out of curiosity, did you have to use G1 software for the 600s and G2 for the 200s? Or did the G2 software handle both updates? The way it's listed on the Godox site is a bit ambiguous.

G1 for 600s and G2 for 200s.
It was clear from where the light specific updates were located on the list which loader needed to be used.

Thanks! I didn't look at the update instructions in the PDF. They explicitly list there as well.

I didn't realized that the Micro USB below the on-off switch was the firmware port. I was using the full USB communication port by mistake .

Got my light from Adorama, did a quick test with the bare bulb and seems to work fine, though there is a delay between pressing the test button and the flash firing. Anyways, three questions/comments:

1. How is everyone carrying this in the field?
2. How do you get the flash tube out of the head? When installing it, you push on the tube but now I can't pull it out. On AD600 it is much easier.
3. Adorama version didn't come with reflector, didn't know that. I think I will need a reflector from some place.
