    If you burned a CD that is not really 100% good this is exactly the behaviour you would expect.
    The mistake you made is to pull the key from the ignition first.. If you had ejected the CD, you would have had a chance to save the unit
    I have seen this happen many a time before and in 9 out of 10 cases the PC has been damaged beyond repair except from a specialized service centre

    You can safely say goodbye to your PC5700

    i think - as the unit havent started the flashing- that the unit CAN be saved by a proper disc, it is just stucked halfway between normal operation and flashing( of course with flash mode flag set on). the improper disc is probably written in mode1, the unit simply cant reboot itself from the disc.

    so, first get a PROPER disc, release the stuck disc and retry from the proper disc.

    and goddamn who releases update discs in iso and nrg format which is simply not suitable for these discs, there formats solely rely on the goodwill of the burner and the burning application...
