While surveying today my reach unexpectedly shut off, and when i tried to start it up again it just sat why the three lights blinking in series (aka loading). i let it sit for a half hour and it never finished booting and I never could get a wifi connection (client or hotspot)
when I made it back to the office i tried flashing the firmware (https://docs.emlid.com/reachrs/reach-panel/firmware-reflashing/) but it doesnt work. i get an error from the PC that the last device connected to usb malfunctioned. i’ve tried 2 different windows 2 machines, multiple usb cords, and multiple usb ports, none of which travel through a hub first.
i simply cannot get windows to recognize the rs+.
Also the reach firmware flash tool hangs at 50% while install ing “zlib.dll” so i cancel the installation and try again, the next time it give me an error during in stall, if i choose “ignore” on the error, it seems to install.
but the firmware flasher never finds the rs+ inorder to flash it.
The windows device manage shows the rs+ as an unknown device (device descriptor request failed)
