K750i and the Honda HFT
Problem: My SE K750i pairs fine and I can use the HFT controls on the steering wheel to accept and make calls but I can''t get the sound to come through the car speakers. Pressing the HFT controls and saying ''Transfer'' does nothing and selecting the transfer option on the phone also does nothing.
I own an Accord but I think this makes no difference.
This is a problem of the K750i firmware.
First check the firmware version.
How to check:
From the start display of the K750i do:
Joystick Right, then *, Left, Left, *, Left, * : this gives you some service menus.
Choose “Service info” then “Software-info” and check the firmware version.
If it''s R1CA021 it needs an update of the flash memory of the K750i to version R1DB001.
How to update the flash memory of the K750i:
I downloaded the "Update_Service_Setup-18.104.22.168-2.exe"-file from the Sony Ericsson Update Service internet adress:
Then I ran the installation of the update software by clicking on the "Update_Service_Setup-22.214.171.124-2.exe"-file.
The update software will be installed in ''Programs''.
Then click Programs -> Sony Ericsson -> Update Sevice -> Update Service.
Choose your language, then ''Start'', then ''Accept'', then choose the phone type (K750i) and then ...follow the further instructions and update your K750i by means of the DCU-60 USB-cable.
