Razberry board appears to have failed

Post by e-nando »

I've been using the Razberry now for a number of months controlling lighting and heating (CT100) without problems, and are thankful for the great improvements including automation engine.

But yesterday the system stopped working and on restarting the Z-Way server it looks like the firmware in the Sigma Z-Wave chip is no longer functioning correctly:

Is this a known (or new) problem with the board? The Razberry is on a UPS and is kept at around 18C, and the Raspberry Pi itself is operating without problem.

Is there anyway to reset the Z-Wave chip by directly writing to the ttyAMA0 device (although presumably I've lost all the network setup anyway) or do I need to RMA the device.

It's concerning that there are a number of what appear to be other reports of manufacturing issues with the daughter board and it would have been great to use an off-the-shelf Z-Wave stick in the Pi.

Please help as the Razberry is controlling most of the house!

Wow! This seems to be a big problem... EEPROM data is lost.

You can reset it using this:
echo -ne "x01x04x00x42x01xB8" > /dev/AMA0

If you still have your files intact, you can recover your network back.
