Did Blink support give you any indication on what it meant? Gotta love programmers and their non-descriptive errors. :D

This should be in one of the many Blink threads, otherwise we are going to have a new thread each time these poorly engineered units crops up a new issue.

New thread, with specific subject, is a great place to put problem-specific posts, rather than burried in one long "Blink Problems" thread.

I got this same message, and it turned out that the unit had to be rebooted by (1) unplugging it (make sure the unit is NOT plugged into your vehicle), (2) waiting at least 1 minutes, and (3) plugging it back in. According to the service rep the Blink unit sometimes has trouble getting back on track after the network connection is lost, which had happened 2 days earlier.

Just curious question to the OP: how did you capture the Blink screen display to show the error message like that? Did you take a picture with your camera? Or was it something more clever, like some sort of a Printscreen? It sure doesn't look like it was a camera picture, unless you have a very high resolution camera.

page element inspect
appears to simply be a picture from dropbox. one thing about dropbox is that it does not compress files including pix which is VERY unusual. its a file sharing program (highly recommended) if you need to access files from multiple computers. its free for storage of ...hmm, dont know. never have needed more than the free version provides. i use it on my phone (verizon compresses all pix to 500 kb which makes my 8 GB rez camera on par with a 2 GB camera...) if i want photo quality snapshots and i am not lugging my Nikon around. i send to drop box from my Bionic. go home, open dropbox on my computer than print!

Looks like a screen capture from the Intranet web page.
