Last night the battery on my (working and connected) Xenon went flat and today on power up it goes straight to flashing blue set-up mode, but now I’m unable to configure it and get it to reconnect.
I’ve tried with my phone to re-add the device but my phone gets stuck at “Pairing with your Xenon” - tried on 2 phones, including the one that originally configured the device.
I am able to connect to it via the serial port and issues an “i” command to get it’s identity, but I don’t see an option to reconfigure the mesh settings to get it reconnected.
It’s running firmware 0.8.0-rc.27
Claims MAC address as 00:00:00:00:00:00
Is there something I can do via the serial port like the “w” WiFi command to get this device to reconnect? I went through the alphabet and nothing appeared to work. Or some other trick to reconnect this device?
Just to make this even more annoying, the Xenon is soldered to the PCB (due to lack of space in the enclosure) so I can’t just swap it out with another one
Also, off topic, but in the interest of project sharing here’s a photo of what I’m working on…
Yes that’s a CCS811 and a BME680 as well as some other fun sensors
Also… bonus tip: be-careful when using a hot air rework gun near your Xenon, turns out those labels are thermal… Fortunately I’ve got a photo of the device with the QR code so not all is lost!.
