PHOTON HARD FAULT - not recover

decided to work on Photon again… and a code that has been proven before, no changes, and Photon decided to give up on me.

After configuring a new WIFI network got into hard fault.

pressing reset and mode, release reset, flashes magenta, if I release setup goes into Hard Fault agian.
If I keep setup pressed, blinks yellow and nothing else.

A reset will always get it back into red mode.
1 blink.

I tried to do USB connection, but is not even usb recognized…


Can you get your Photon into DFU mode (yellow blinking)?
If so you could try reflashing the system

particle update

or any other way outlined here
