Can you give a few more details as to what steps did you take to get to this point.

Is your remote turned off?

First format the SD card.  Then do a clean install of the v1.1.9 bin file.  This upgrade takes a long time.  Please be patient.  Just let it go.  Do not turn the Tx on.  Listen to the beeps.  You will hear a series of 4 beeps while upgrading.  The leds will switch on and off.  Do not power down until you hear a beep followed by two beeps that repeats.  At that point you can power down and check the SD card for the txt message that indicates success.  Please delete that file.  You do not have to upgrade the Tx as long as it is v1.1.8.

Never mind.... Patience Grasshopper my antgel needed to tell me. That must have been normal maybe as it finished with 4 quick beeps and turned on the lights. Rebooted fine. Not what I recall exactly from the last update.

Maui Digital Dr., I sure hope you can help me resolve the same issue that you had. I apparently turned off the power on my Phantom 3 Professional before the update was completed and now when I try to update again, all I get is continuous loud beeping.

Put it somewhere you can't hear it( I used the garage) and let it beep for 40 minutes. Worked for me ;-)

No, not yet. Haven't had time to try leaving it in the garage. But, the noise is so loud, not sure I can tell when the update is complete. I also don't think it was upgrading because the red and green light wasn't flashing like it is supposed to on the gimbal.

But, I will give it a try.

Format the SD card again and download the firmware and install the bin file on the card and do the process over. I re did it on the 16GB card that came with the bird and it worked the first time I tried to reinstall it. Let it make noise until it stops and you get the D DDD sound from the gimbal area. hope this helps, good luck.

Okay, reformatted the SD card, downloaded the bin file onto SD card, plugged it into the P3 and let it Beep, Beep, went to dinner and came home 1.5 hrs later. Found the P3 still Beep, Beep, beeping and the gimble hot. No luck.

Listen guys, start all over and do it again. Make sure you re format your card through the P3. Download your firmware and put ONLY the bin file on the card. Turn your remote on, then the app and then install the SD card into the P3 and turn it on. Install firmware as usual and put the P3 in the bathroom so you dont have to listen to it. LET IT RUN you should see a green and red light flashing on the gimbal and after about 15-20 minutes it should be done making THAT ANNOYING SOUND. If you still have problems you are NOT DOING SOMETHING RIGHT. Start over and try using the 16GB card that came with the P3, that's what worked for me.

I had the same thing happen very very loud beep beep seem to speed up to, I found out it is due to stopping the P3 before it has completed the update, I did format the sd card again put firm wear back on it let P3 cool down and start all over again, I had to do this 3 times before it took the new update, just let it beep, its loud but it should stop and go back to the regular update DDD--DDD sound mine did give it a good 30 min after loud beep beep stops then you should be okay.

Is there anyway to turn down the volume of the beeping? My parents could hear it 3 states away. Is there any reason as to why it's that loud?

This happened to me today while upgrading my P3A firmware to v1.3.2. The loud beeps are obnoxious, but you just have to deal with it. I followed you guys' instructions of formatting the SD card then put the .bin file on it then restart it to let it load. There is a little LED in the front of the gimbal that tells you when the upgrading is done (instead of D---DD pattern I was used to). I put mine in the closet for about 15min and loud beep went away. I was afraid I might have to sent it to DJI for repairs, but thanks you guys that posted on this forum thread!

Better to look at a current thread. This one is old. Check here for firmware update info. Also search for a recent trhread on the subject.

I have the same problems of loud beeps, maybe due to uncompleted update. because theres no really clue when does the update of firmware is done.
I haven't tested and fly the bird and tried to connect it through ios app.
what would be the best advice and steps to repair this bird?
the beeping sounds heats the dji phantom so I shut it off.
should I format the sd from laptop then transfer a version of old firm ware?
dji please do make a concise and clear steps to repair this drone (advance)

thank you

read the comments before my post.

-insert the sd card with the bin file.
-connect your phantom p3 controller to your ios phone.
-then update the firmware of you rc controller while your phantom/bird beeps very loud.
-for 5 minutes while downloading the firmware for RC controller.
-once you you start upgrading (press start upgrade)
-the phantom/bird  automatically turns upgrading normally. (with light red and yellow)

hope these helps!

*mine rc download and update comepletely
*while my drone is currently updating with light red and yellow blinking normally. (no more beeping)

Hi Guys,

Most of you will think i am moronic but i still thought i would ask. i had this entire annoying beeping issue because, as most of you did, i turned off the machine while the firmware was still updating.

anyway i understand perfectly the process on how to fix this but i have a major issue:

I CANT FIND THE LINK TO DOWNLOAD THE FIRMWARE FOR MY P3 STANDARD. i must be stupid. i can fin the one for the professional but not for the standard.

i mean i go to download and i have on the left a link to the app and on the right only notes and manuals.

could someone please help me?

many thanks

Hi guys.

So sometime yesterday, I connected my Phantom 3 Standard to my computer to view pictures from the flight I had just completed. Midway through this, bird started to beep. Not knowing what this was about (I didn't get any prompt for a firmware update), I turned the device off and then put it back on....and then in started...incessant annoyingly loud beeping.

I formatted the micro-sd card as advised in the forum, but the thing is that I can find any link to download the firmware for the phantom standard anywhere on the internet...I am getting depressed and desperate about this.

I would really appreciate if anyone could send me a link to the bin file for the phantom 3 standard, or even email me a copy.

I hope I can get this bird fixed, so I really need her back in the air.

Thanks!

Thanks for the help.  I too turned off the P3P before the update was finished. Got the LOUD beeps. Redid everything as stated above and stuck the drone in the kitchen for an hour. Seems to work now.

My question is how do I correct the date for the P3P?  In the log it shows the history of my firmware updates but always has the wrong date. Here is the log from this morning (April 16, 2016. 6am)

The beeps... the horrendous beeps. The update says the light on the gimbal should be flashing from red to green. Mine is solid green, but BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP for like 45 minutes now.

I tried formatting the card from the app, redownloaded the bin file, switched cards, still no dice.

Read this whole thread and it's basically the same thing. Should I just let her keep beeping? She's getting so hot in there....

Mine's doing the never-ending beeping (over an hour if I let it)...

Anyone in that situation have it figured out yet?

Can't believe how messed up the Phantom is out of nowhere, seemingly starting with the iOS update. Really disappointed.

"HOW TO CONNECT"

Thanks guys.
(EDIT)
New MicroSD card made the beeping stop about 5 mins in, and now it's doing the D---DD sound. But the gimbal light is red, so we'll see.
