Defective Xbee unit

by craver2000 on Sat Mar 04, 2017 12:17 am

Hi, one of the XBee module that I purchased from Adafruit in Janurary has become defective. I am unsure of the cause as it has always been connected via a linear voltage regulator board. It is currently unable to receive or send signals but previously worked fine. When I connected it to my computer and attempt troubleshooting with XCTU, a dialog notified me of action required to reset the XBee. Thus, I used recovery mode in the XCTU software to reset the firmware. However, the problem still persists, and XCTU still prompts me to reset the module. I have tried resetting it for several times already. Please advise me on this issue.

Have you posted your question on the Digi forums? https://www.digi.com/support/forum/
Digi are the manufacturers of the XBee modules and their engineers know them better than we do. They may have some additional recommendations for troubleshooting.
