I have a Buzzbox that’s been running since early summer. It stopped transmitting data, and I finally got it removed from my hive and back inside to see what’s up with it.
My fuzzbox is mounted inside a top box in my hive, with only the antenna outside the box, so it sees no direct weather. I saw no physical signs of damage, no cables disconnected, etc. To ensure the battery was charging I turned it off and put it under some high intensity lamps (not so much sun these days in Portland, OR). The charging LED showed red, so I assume it was properly charging. After a day of that I can read ~4v on the batter leads.
So then I move to trying to re-set up the Buzzbox. Pressing setup button has no affect. A 10 second press on setup button has no impact. A long press on the Reset button (up to 10+ seconds) has no impact. So essentially apart from apparently charging, the unit seems totally dead.
Please advise on other steps to take to debug this.
