Reach RS+ does not start

I have two Emlid Reach RS+ devices. One of them does not start and does also not charge properly: When I connect the charger I get no LED signal for about half an hour. After that half an hour, the red LED starts blinking as it should when charging. However, afterwards I cannot turn it on and if I disconnect the charger, the process starts all over again (no signal for half an hour). I left it for a day and half charging, but got no result. The other Reach RS+ unit works properly. The charger I use is a 5V 1.5 A charger, which is connected via the micro USB port.

I just tried to start the Reach RS+ while being connected to the charger, I made a video, but cannot upload it, so what happens is the following:

  • Red led is blinking (charging mode)
  • I hold the power button for 3 seconds
  • All the leds start blinking in sequence (first red, then blue, then green), this last for 8 seconds
  • Red led stays on for 3 seconds
  • No led for 4 seconds
  • Red led stays on for 12 seconds
  • Red led stays on and blue led blinks for 2 seconds
  • Red led blinks three times
  • No led for 3 seconds
  • Red and blue led blink at the same time (1 time)
  • No led for 3 seconds
  • Red led in charging mode (blinking)

Do you have any suggestions on how to resolve this problem? Thanks in advance!

Best regards,
