Photon is blinking blue and red and can’t connect to cloud. It used to connect just fine. Been trying to fix it for 3 days with no luck. Got angry and unclaimed device and now I can’t claim it again.
But it’s in DFU mode.
I tried updating and it said “device is ready for system update”. It says it completed successfully, but no matter how many times I run ‘particle update’ it says the same things, ready for update and completed successfully. After searching in the forums I read it could be a corrupt key and that I should create a new key. But when I run ‘particle keys new’ it shows this:
I read that means no Open SSL? But when I installed Particle CLI, it showed it installed Open SSL and there is a folder in C:\ named ‘OpenSSL-Win32’. And I created a path: C:\openssl\bin
I tried running ‘particle keys doctor’ and got this:
Trying to save key shows:
Here’s something else I tried:
And trying the cloud_public.der returned:
Device Manager shows: Photon (Com 1) under Ports. I did a Update Driver, no change. When it’s in DFU mode, Device Manager shows it under: libusbk USB Device, Photon DFU mode.
And if it helps, I’ve got Windows 10.
Any other suggestions? Personally, I think this photon’s had it.
