6700 Firmware Upgrade Seems to Have Stalled

I began a 6700 firmware upgrade to the latest version ( I was several minor versions behind) and after two hours, the LED is still solid purple and the display reads: Updating Software.
Is this expected behavior?
At what point do I power the 6700 off?
What are the recovery steps?

    Hi Rick, I would open a help desk ticket.

    I have had that happen with both my 6500 and my 6600M. After about 1/2 hour I gave up and powered the radio off. Removed DC power for a few minutes, then reconnected my power supply. Turned the power supply on and waited couple more minutes then powered on the radio itself. In both cases, the radio then completed the update and booted up normally.

    I am not saying this will be the case for you. But, it was what I experienced.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
