I had previously tried unplugging for over an hour. The "miracle" didn't occur until after several days of no power. My unit was also identified as having a bad SD card by serial number. It's interesting that you got a new SD card w/ 1.8 since they don't told they waiting for the 2.0 units.ttweed wrote:Leaving it unplugged for an extended period, as some have suggested above, does seem to matter in a "cold boot" of the unit. However, although my screen did come up after waiting an hour, the display content was still corrupted--some screens in the setup process were offset, and the formatting of the text was wrong, with some lists of choices in very small text with no clear place to touch to choose that option. In trying to use the direct intranet connection to manage it, I continually got "http error 502" when accessing the network setup also. After the SD card was replaced with a new Sandisk unit yesterday (which still had ver. 1.8 of the firmware, BTW), the screen responded correctly to all setup commands and direct communication over the intranet is flawless now. The tech said it would be able to update to 2.0 when that is pushed out now as well. He did mention a bad batch of micro sd cards in the early units, and identified mine as one from the serial number.arnolddeleon wrote:I plugged in the Blink expecting to be back at the black screen again but to my great surprise it was in the setup screen. I went through the setup and appears to be working (for now).
FWIW my unit is plugged in directly for internet.
