rv082 v3 bricked during firmware update

     I have an RV082 hardware version V03 that has been in service for about a year.   I tried to update the firmware to from  All appeared to be going well, then the browser timed out.  I waited a while (10 + minutes) and powered down the RV082, then powered it back up. 

     On boot all lights flashed, then it settled on the LAN link 1, DMZ Mode, internet, and system lights all lit solid green, but the Diag light lites red for 5 seconds, then out for 5 seconds over and over.

     I have tried the recovery TFTP procedure (hold reset down while booting, release when Diag light lites, run RV042_1.3.7.2_050727.exe).  Booting with the reset button pressed is the same as without.  The recovery utility generates an "Login Fail" error in a separate red window after about a minute (with in the address).  When I click OK in that it exits the recovery program

     I also tried the method of hold reset for 5 seconds during power on then look for firmware update page at  I server not found.

     I can Ping and have the computer set to  Using an IP scanner I can see the RV082 MAC address and IP address but nothing else.

     I scoped out the power supply.  It is providing 5.07 VDC both connected to MB and open.  Ripple is <.003 Vpp.

     The unit is several months out of warranty.

     Is there any other procedure for unbricking these units?  I have the wherewithall to JTAG but don't see how to do it on this.

     The unit has been replaced with a new one, I would just like to get this one back to life as a spare.

Thanks for any help
