wAP ac potentially bricked when trying to reset to default config

Hi,

I tried to reset the config of a wAP ac to default values by pressing the reset button and then connecting it to POE.

I did not have the feeling that it worked because there was still no SSID without key, so I repeated the procedure.

Now the wAP does not light the LEDs when I connect it to the C2960-L-SM.

Is there any chance to revive the wAP ac? The switch still supplies power to other devices, so I think the switch is not broken.

Thanks for your help

Thomas

wAPs are now back online.

I waited a long time with disconnected APs.

Power cycled the switch 2 times.

With IOS 15.2.5 one AP was detected to be 100 MBit Full Duplex 15.2 Watts and the other one with 1000MBit Full Duplex 0Watts.

Yesterday I upgraded to 15.2.7ED. Now both devices are connected with Gigabit/Full Duplex and 15.2W power consumption.

I think it is ok to blame Cisco for not implementing correctly PoE+ in 15.2.5 and probably it is not yet really robust implemented.
