I attempted to runt the puck 1v91 firware update via nRF toolbox and got a notification saying the upload failed. Now the Puck won't seem to switch on. I can't get the red LED for a soft reset or the green LED.
Do you think you could check the battery voltage or try with a new battery?
It's possible that the firmware update failed because the battery ran out - re-flashing the device uses quite a lot of power
I've tried a new battery and no success. I haven't got a meter to test the battery, but it is new.
Do you have any way of getting hold of a volt meter? The only other person that reported having this problem did actually have 2 flat batteries when they tested.
If it is broken I'm happy to replace it, but it seems amazingly unlikely - even in the case that the firmware upload failed, you should be able to get into bootloader mode by inserting the battery with the button held down
I'm afraid I still don't have a multimeter, but I have tested the batteries in a range of devices and they are working. Still no response from the Puck though.
Ok, thanks for checking - I've just sent you an e-mail :)
Just an update to this if anyone else has the problem - having got it back, it's exactly as I'd said:
Flat battery and firmware update failed halfway through
So just insert a new battery with the button held down, and release the button. The red LED should light as normal for bootloader mode, then you just follow the firmware update instructions again.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
