FEZ spider hangs (bsod)


#1

Hi,

I am experiencing frequent BSOD on FEZ Spider.

In order to exclude my project code as cause of the problem I have created a blank project with one line of code :
display_TE35.SimpleGraphics.DisplayText(“TEST”, Resources.GetFont(Resources.FontResources.NinaB), Color.White, 10, 10);

After running the code for some time (10 mins) board hangs with BSOD.

Firmware is 4.2.11.2 both od device and comp and the modules I have connected are : display (te35), usb client DP, ethernet j11d and button.

Any ideas or tips on how to troubleshoot this ? Could it be faulty HW ?

Thanks,
Roman

i don’t know if its part of the problem but i saw the 1/2 first row when i mix up T35 and the TE35 display

I would make sure power is not the problem. Use a power pack or a usb hub.

Thanks VB-Daniel - this is most probbably my problem. I had the TE35 in the project while it should have been T35 as you said.
Im testing now - but so far it seems that its working.

Roman

no - unfortunately still the same thing.
ALthough the first line on the display is now fully visible : ABORT Prefetch.

I also have a power supply - so power should not be the problem.

Any other ideas ?

Tnx
Roman

Reload the firmware maybe


#7

If possible, could you please post your entire test program.


#8

I have updated the TinyLoader to 4.2.11.1 and Firmware to 4.2.11.2 (screenshot)

Still same problem.

I have noticed one thing - when the board hangs red light is turned on the button.

Thanks for help

(1) Please post (to this forum) your complete project C# code.
(2) If you take off all modules except the TE35, does you program reproduce the error.

I have created a blank project with only display_t35 and USBClientDP.
(note its not the TE35 as I previously posted but the T35)

And this also crashes.
Here is the code (everything is default besides the one line that displays TEST on the screen:

using System;
using System.Collections;
using System.Threading;
using Microsoft.SPOT;
using Microsoft.SPOT.Presentation;
using Microsoft.SPOT.Presentation.Controls;
using Microsoft.SPOT.Presentation.Media;
using Microsoft.SPOT.Presentation.Shapes;
using Microsoft.SPOT.Touch;

using Gadgeteer.Networking;
using GT = Gadgeteer;
using GTM = Gadgeteer.Modules;
using Gadgeteer.Modules.GHIElectronics;

namespace HangTest
{
public partial class Program
{
// This method is run when the mainboard is powered up or reset.
void ProgramStarted()
{
display_T35.SimpleGraphics.DisplayText(“TEST”,Resources.GetFont(Resources.FontResources.NinaB),Color.White,10,10);
Debug.Print(“Program Started”);
}
}
}

Is it easy to shop to us to test for you?


#13

Gus, I could ship it - but since Im in europe they could carge me customs tax (one more time) once you ship it back :slight_smile:
I would use this as last option.

Is there anything else I could try ?

Tnx
Roman

If you ordered from a distributor then maybe check with then?


#15

Gus,
I ordered from GHI directly. Can you ping me on my mail directly and point me to someone I can talk to on how to test the item or possibly return to you.
Thanks
Roman
