Re: New Firmware Pushed : L2R.1.6A

Mon May 30, 2011 12:57 pm

I reported the time problem and got a response back that it has been fixed and I should see this on my system within 2 hours. I checked it just now (an hour later) and it is now correct. I have the same firmware ver, my timezone (Pacific) and other time settings are the same, and there is nothing listed in the logs that I see, so I have no idea what they did. The time is now correct on the Blink itself and via the HTTP interface. It's bad they had this minor issue in the first place, but very responsive & effective customer support is nice to see.

Now I know what they changed. All the widgets on "My Dashboard" of blinknetwork.com are failing and reporting "ERROR: Time zone US/Pacific-New not recognized".

If I change the timezone back to "Pacific" rather than "Pacific-New" then the widgets work, but the time is wrong again (off by one hour). Sounds like they have some coding to do. I reported the error.

I just got an email that said they have found the cause of this bug; it is now fixed and will be released in the June firmware update. Again, great communication and customer support.

I got some weird behavior with new update...
I plugged in Leaf while Blink was in Settings page (I checked some stuff before plugging in) and after that Blink displayed "Processing..." message and become unresponsive to any touches, but it did charge the leaf...
I had to powercycle to restore touchscreen functionality.
Anyone else experienced this?

I had this same problem yesterday, however it was on the regular status screen. I ended up rebooting the Blink to make it responsive again.

Yes, I had it too.

Since it was charging fine, I left it alone. I came back 3 hours later and the screen was normal again. No reboot required.

I definitely am finding that 1.5 was more stable than 1.6.

Last night it started charging at 9.
At 9:57 it stopped charging at 10 of 12 bars
At 11:12, it completed charging
At 12:08, it completed charging again.

And it's not the first time it's doing this. It's been randomly doing this ever since 1.6.

I NEVER got multiple emails like this prior to 1.6.

The other day I came out and it was on the startup screen where it has a big BLINK logo and says "setup" and "start charging" . After a few clicks it ended up rebooting itself.

mine is working fine.
BUT
the url for the local access changes once in awhile and I have to go fetch the new variation (last 3 digits) to reconnect.
I did notice very occasional stop-start charging, near the end of the 80% cycle.

I have got multiple completed emails many times - both in 1.6 and earlier. I assumed that was Leaf doing some rebalancing.
1st Leaf : 2/28/2011 to 5/6/2013
2nd Leaf : 5/4/2013 to 3/21/2017
Volt : 3/25/2017 to 5/25/2018
Model 3 : 5/10/2018 to ?

If your Blink is using DHCP on the network settings, then the address will change periodically. If you set it up with a static IP address, it won't change...
