What to do if the Firmware Update Fails
If, after following all of the instructions in this article, the firmware update still fails, there are a few possible reasons.
First, make sure that you are using the correct firmware file for your camera. The firmware files that we provide on this website are for the a50 cameras that were released in September of 2017. If you are using an older camera model, or a camera that was released after September of 2017, you will need to download the firmware file that is specific to your camera model from the official Panasonic website.
Second, make sure that you are connecting your camera to the Internet. If you are not connected to the Internet, the firmware update process will not be able to access the necessary files from the Panasonic website.
Last, make sure that your computer is up-to-date with the most recent software. If your computer is not up-to-date, the firmware update process may not be able to access the necessary files from the Panasonic website.
If you find that your camera isn’t responding to firmware updates or you simply want to confirm that your camera is up-to-date, follow these troubleshooting tips:
First, ensure that your camera is properly connected to your computer. Next, make sure that the camera is turned on and has a fresh battery. If the camera is still not updating or if you are having trouble downloading a firmware file, try using a different computer or a different connection. If all of these troubleshooting tips fail, then your camera may be outdated and you will need to upgrade to the latest firmware.
It is always good to keep your firmware updated on your camera. The latest firmware for the a50 is 1.01 and it fixes some issues with the camera. If you have not updated your firmware yet, now is a good time to do so.
