Default Vbct - strange white screen

So my vbct displays a strange white background screen almost every time I turn off my heli. Anyone know what this is?

There are errors in the file system. Connect it to VBC Manager via USB and let it check and repair the file system. The cause is usually a botched WiFi update.

I plugged my vbct into my computer and ran the manager. It checked all the files and said it was OK. At the end the manager also said that a new firmware had been loaded onto the VBCT and that it would need to reboot. At that very moment the white screen appear on the radio.

The white screen continues to appear. I can make the white screen appear if I turn off the heli and then turn it back on again. When I turn it back on the radio doesn't bind to the heli - this screen just appears

Is this safe to fly? Do I have to send this to mikado?

Do not fly this. Also make sure the Neo is updated fully.

If in the US lodge a ticket with MikadoUSA or PM me for the way forward.

I just made a service ticket on the vstabi site. I bought the radio used. Does that impact service at all?

The decision on the warranty or not is for Mikado Germany to decide.

Well I hope someone can help me out because the radio is bricked now. It kept disconnecting during the firmware updates you and Mikado prescribed. Now the radio won't even turn on. I hope I can get it to work again. I really liked the way vbar flew.....
