I have 2 new Hydras that worked for a short time and then stopped working. Firmware was initially updated using FEZ Config and both boards ran simple C# LED blinking etc. for a short time before not being found by Visual Studio. The FEZ Config utility recognizes the boards as USB FEZ HYDRA_Gadgeteer and the bottom status bar says “FEZ Hydra_Gadgeteer is connected”. When I Ping it, a message box says “Failure - Device is not connected or not responding”.
I have tried the following:
Uninstalled and re-installed all software and drivers.
On 1 board, I tried a manual firmware install following instructions to short pins 8 and 10 on socket 3. Doing this did not give me a serial port as described, but showed up as an unknown device.
Any thoughts on repairing these boards?
Thanks - Brian
