With your help in “Getting Started” and “Cloud Software”, I got my app working with 2 photons and Blynk. I had it running for days and everything was great.
THE problem - I disconnected the battery on one of my Photons for a couple days to weatherproof the connection to my sensor. When I reconnected it, I got rapid blink cyan. I tried re-setting it up on wifi using the phone app several times. In some cases, I got an error message during the set up, but repeatedly get all the way through to “Set up completed successfully” but the Photon shows Offline and I’m getting the rapid cyan flash meaning not connected to cloud - right?
Edit 5/20 1:45 MDT - I figured this out but haven’t yet got the the Photon to connect.
Another problem - I have spent several hours reading about my first problem and came to the conclusion the Command Line Interface would be helpful maybe to use DFU. This is deja vu from several months ago when I never did figure out how to use the CLI. I have gone through the instructions to install CLI in Windows 7 and repeated the installation process several times. I have gotten PuTTY working on a COM port, can get responses to the “i” and the “m” commands and used it to monitor serial output from my Photon. I have node.js installed and can bring it up, but is seems to do nothing. How do you start and use CLI? I have a program loaded called “particle.exe”, but when I start it it just flashes on the screen and closes. Is CLI a program that you actually start or is it a set of commands that run from a terminal (PuTTY)? If the latter, is there a command reference somewhere? BTW, when I use PuTTY, I never see what I type, but do see the responses from the Photon.
I would really appreciate any help getting my Photon working and, if that involves CLI, I would REALLY appreciate a pointer to how to start and use it.
Thank you for your help
