New device error code 006

I just bought a new express + off eBay. During setup it needs to update, but it jumps during the update from 9% to 60% then when finished gives me an error code: 006. Says failed because verification failed. Did I buy a bunk device or what? The signal strength is 4-5 bars. I've hard reset a dozen times. I've tried pressing home 5 times, fwd 3, rewind 2. And updating from there. Same thing. When I start the device it syncs my remote, asks me language preference, has me connect to internet, checks for update, and error. I can't go through the device.

Re: New device error code 006


Thanks for the inquiry.

This error code usually indicates that the update failed because of verification failure.
