hAP ac bricked?

Tue Jan 05, 2021 9:17 pm

Hello,

today I wanted to reset one of my two hAP ac Router Boards to start from from scratch with facory defaults after it has been working for several years now.
I therefore removed the power, pressed the reset button, plugged tn the power cord and waited until the SFP LED flashed - like I always did.
After that I was able to login and use this factory reset device. After I did some testing, I did the same procedure again to reset it. Unfortunately the device is no longer working as expected.

When I plug it in it beeps (long) PWR and SFP are on, after that all LEDs are on for 1-2 seconds, it beeps two times (short) and after that LED 2 is blinking (that's where the client is connected to) and PWR LED is lit in constant blue. No wireless, no DHCP. It seems as if it is not booting up correctly or booting up into a "strange" state.

I already tried to flash the stable release of routeros-mipsbe-6.48.npk using netinstall-6.48.

This seemed to work, but nevertheless, nothing has changed:
user@host:~/Downloads/mikrotik_netinstall/netinstall-6.48$ sudo ./netinstall -a 192.168.88.1 ./routeros-mipsbe-6.48.npk

After several devices and all these xears, I never experienced something like this before. Could anyone please help me? I don't want to throw this great device away just like that... :-(

Best Regards,
Daniel
