I’ve had a Particle Photon in operation running my garage door for about 6 months. A few days ago, I powered it down and made some minor wiring changes. Upon restoring power, I’ve gotten many different flashing light sequences, but can never get it to connect to the cloud. Added challenge is my colorblindness, so I keep having to get someone else to look at the blnky lights for me.
I’ve reverted my wiring change, in case that was the problem, but now I can’t get it to do anything. I’ve been Googling for HOURS and DAYS, and I’m pretty close to using a hammer as the final solution and abandoning this platform for life. (attempts to control frustrated rant)
Current state: I’ve installed CLI, worked thru several errors and bugs there. I’ve tried to repair the keys with “Particle keys doctor <Id#>”. I frequently get “no serial port” identified and hung terminal screens with the CLI.
The Photon is currently fast flashing cyan. (or sometimes Cyan and occasional Red/Orange)
I’ve tried so many things, I’ve lost track. I wish I had a “factory reset” button, but this seems unavailable.
Please help. Where to start from scratch?
