I setup a new Photon today. It connects to the cloud. There was a time when it blink magenta (purple), so I assumed it was updating firmware and let it be. It shows up in my devices tab as using the latest 0.4.5 firmware. I copy and pasted the “blink LED” sketch from the examples.
Then I downloaded it to the Photon. It flashed purple like it’s supposed to. But then it seems messed up.
Breathing Magenta/Purple…stays that way for 40 seconds or so
Flashing red…and then goes back to the beginning of sequence.
I’ve tried power cycling it. Same thing happens. I wonder if I’m missing a setup guide that explains these lights and makes everything clear? The device mode kind of talks about it, but doesn’t cover usual circumstances.
