I was using the radio and I lost connectivity, I followed everything correctly on pages 107 and 108 of the manual to reset the network to default, it won't reset to 192.168.16.200 stays at 192.168.1.7.

Next tried Press and hold BT and RST buttons simultaneously etc etc

Next tried activate the boot-loader mode and the manual says "2. Press and hold the BT button on the rear panel of the transceiver (you will hear a light click),
switch on the transceiver with the PWR button. The LED will blink with a single green light;"

The light only flashes green and red but eesdr 2 tries to flash firmware but nothing happens and the led continues flashing red/greed. It's dead, I can ping the ip sucessfully and it can see the serial of the radio but it won't flash the firmware, I think it's dead ?

The only way to stop the light flashing red/green is to switch it off and press rst and power it back on then I get a solid green led but no communication.

I think it's dead. I have it since January so still under warranty but it's going to cost to send back to piluepDX and i'll probably be waiting a month or more to get it back if I'm lucky.

Any ideas ? is there any way to make the radio take the firmware to reset or is it completely dead ?

Tried eesdr2, got it into bootloader mode and tried to flash then it gives error "firmware update error, can not go into bootloader mode" and the light turns from flashing red/green to solid red.

in EESDR 3 it stays on preparing update.

Sometimes you might need to activate the boot-loader mode, to reinstall the transceiver's
firmware:
1. Switch off the transceiver with the PWR button;
2. Press and hold the BT button on the rear panel of the transceiver (you will hear a light click),
switch on the transceiver with the PWR button. The LED will blink with a single green light;
3. Release the BT button;
4. Open ESDR2 software and open Options-> Device menu, Expert tab and press Firmware
update.
5. After firmware update is finished, LED will turn to constant green light.


When I do this I get only flashing red/green led not single "blinking" ? green light.

Pressing rst does nothing, I did this before and it would flash red/green then when finished a solid green led would appear and the network settings would then be set to default. But this time it won't reset the network settings to default.

It's strange that pressing BT only gives me flashing red/green light, when I try update firmware I get fail message and solid red led.

I think the radio is dead because nothing I do in the manual works.

Hallo . If I have understand it right. It was a serie with boatloader problem. A friend to me get 1 of those. This was around this Christmas . Check the serialnumber with Roman and he can tell you if your tranceiver is in that serie. My frind did that and get a new one from dealer.

Has anyone dealt with pileupdx from Sweden before for returns ?

I send my sunsdr 2 dx back and it's waiting since yesterday to get response at the address they gave me to send it back so it's being stored at the courier location.

I've sent several messages through their ticketing system looking for a number to give to courier and after the initial reply to send it back to the address I have received nothing only this.

"PileupDX.com SunSDR.eu Xiegu.eu" after each message.

Not happy with pileupdx.
