Troubleshooting Tips

      Controller won’t go into programming mode
          o Make sure you are using fully charged or brand new batteries.
          o Remove the battery pack and hold down the right tact switch while
             reattaching the battery pack to the controller.
          o Make sure you are not touching or holding the "A" button or right
             thumbstick of your controller when you are placing it in programming
             mode. The "A" button and right thumbstick on the controller are tied into
             the same circuit as the programming points.

      Cannot open .rar file from the website
          o Install WinRAR on your computer. Go to the Viking360.com website and
            click on the Download Drivers tab. Click on the link to WinRAR and
            download WinRAR to your computer.

      HID BootLoader indicates device not attached even though my controller is
       in programming mode and it is properly connected to my computer

                                Instructions

       o Reboot your computer.
       o Make sure you are using fully charged or brand new batteries.
       o Make sure you have plugged in the correct programming cable for your
         controller
       o Make sure you have fully plugged the programming cable into the port on
         the controller and into the port on your computer.
       o Make sure you are not touching or holding the "A" button or right
         thumbstick of your controller when you are connected to your computer.
         The "A" button and right thumbstick on the controller are tied into the
         same circuit as the programming points.
       o Remove the programming cable from the controller, remove the battery
         pack, reinsert the battery pack and place the controller into programming
         mode again (see Step 1). Reconnect the programming cable to the
         controller.

   When I try to open the .HEX file I’ve saved on my computer using the HID
    BootLoader, the file does not show up in the place I saved it.
       o Close the HID BootLoader program and make sure you have not opened it
          while it is still in the .rar file. Move the HID BootLoader program to your
          desktop or some other easily accessible location on your computer.

   When I plug the cable into my controller the Player 3 or Player 4 button
    flashes rapidly and the HID BootLoader does not detect the controller
        o Remove the programming cable from the controller, remove the battery
           pack, reinsert the battery pack and place the controller into programming
           mode again (see Step 1). Reconnect the programming cable to the
           controller.

   Controller power keeps going off in programming mode
       o Make sure you are using fully charged or brand new batteries.
       o Make sure the battery pack has been inserted properly and is tight in the
          controller (the battery pack has clicked into place).
