I am using since a couple of weeks 2 photons for connecting an RC aircraft to a laptop, a client photon being on-board, connected to an Arduino in charge of sensors acquisition and a server photon on the ground connected to the laptop by USB…
Everything went quite well so far, I could send continuous data through the could and could decode them with my PC.
Yesterday my WiFi was quite bad and I tried to isolate the link from the cloud by using SYSTEM_MODE(SEMI_AUTOMATIC) to avoid the client going green breathing (cloud lost). Then the server photon went white breathing. The client is still Ok.
I read on the guide that this is symptomatic of the WiFi module being disconnected:
If your device is breathing white, the Wi-Fi module is off. You might see this mode if:
You have set your module to MANUAL or SEMI_AUTOMATIC in your user firmwareYou have called WiFi.off() in your user firmware
I cannot get out of this status. I cannot flash anymore, meaning that no more purple then green then cyan color sequence. I get an ‘flashing unsuccessful’ message.
I tried flashing ‘blink led’ without success (although the Particle Build IDE says that flashing is ok!).
I tried to particle setup it but as the WiFi is disconnected, the process cannot complete (Waiting for a wild photon to appear…).
Do you have any idea on how to get out of this?
Thank you very much for your support.
