Re: [tracker2] Re: Can't config, OT2m serial port not responding
- Hi Scott,
In the truck, it was receiving power via the Radio port. When I
plug it from the wall, there is no startup sequence on the LEDs, only
the green RX is lit up. I've tried 3 different DC adapters, all
within the 7 to 28V DC range. I am guessing maybe a component went
bad on the board.
I put it back into the truck and well now I'm not getting anything
from it. I guess that teaches me, I should have left it well enough
