Wink Power Button - light out

Postby wbohmann » Wed Apr 06, 2016 5:00 pm

My Wink power indicator light is not longer working (just in front of the power) button. I've determined that the Power Button in general is not working, while it depresses, no light turns on. I've tried pressing the button in various states to see if I can load a sketch, however I cannot load a sketch anymore to my wink. Perhaps the power button is really broken. Anyone else have similar issues?

Mine is similar, the button turns Wink on then off again easily. Not as reliable as the switch on Ringo :( I just press the button firmly with Wink on a steady surface and wait a few seconds before touching it just to see if it settles to an ON state instead of beeping on then off quickly. Dodgy batch of buttons maybe?

I wonder if the Wink needs to be charged? If you plug in the programmer and hook up to the computer - you should get a charge LED light up next to the programming pins. Let it charge for an hour or two and see if that corrects the problem.
