Important: You MUST use the AC adapter as the power supply when performing the update. If you do not use the AC adapter as the power supply, an error message will appear, and it will not be possible to update it.

Before you update the unit, make sure that the power cable is firmly plugged into the PMD661 and into an AC outlet. If the power is turned off accidentally while the unit is being updated, the PMD661 may not start up.
