First photon post. Not sure if yay or nay.
I just started working with a photon board late last night. Everything worked perfectly fine on the 3 boards I have.
2 are running 0.4.3 and one is running 0.6.0. I just updated EVERYTHING. I’ve gone through every single post I can find about lack of connectivity and nothing has solved my issues.
One thing I have not seen mentioned that seems to be causing my problems is SPI. I was running all kinds of little tinker stuff, basic LED on/off, 2 LEDs on/off, all the good hello world serial jazz.
As soon as I put SPI code on, it seems to have permanently broken all 3 of my photons. Not a single one can remain on a network for more than 5 seconds not exaggerating, it connects, I pick up my phone and open tinker, and it’s offline).
I am getting a solid green state. Only way for me to get to setup is to cut power all together and I have to reset while it’s starting. If I let it go for a bit then it enters the solid green state and it’s locked in there.
Are there any suggestions?
I have done the serial wifi, I’ve tried the 0.6.0 and 0.4.3 firmware versions, I’ve tried other networks, I have released and reclaimed. I saw that multiple networks saved can cause issues but at least 1 of the boards has only ever been on one network.
I read it might be an ISP issue but I have used my phone as a hotspot and the issue persists.
I’ve essentially got 3 very tiny, lightweight bricks and I need them for a school project.
Might have just solved my problem.
Through a 1 second delay in my code and it seems to be okay now. Might have been working too fast to handle the WiFi chip.
Wishful thinking, it’s basically bricked again.
