Nano problem **solved**

Post by aquamom » Fri Sep 14, 2018 5:19 pm

I decided to purchase the Nano in the hope that it would make my life easier but that seems not the case. It has successfully connected to my network which is fantastic but now I get the following messages (see below). I have no idea what I have done wrong in my setup. I am a little perplexed why it is telling me to disconnect USB when there is no USB connected to my VantageVue. I have power cycled several times. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

thanks in advance.

logger (14.09.2018 10:58:32): communication with Davis console/envoy seems to be stalled. Please power cycle the console/envoy by (1) disconnect from AC, (2) remove batteries and (3) disconnect USB. Wait a minute and power on again. Weak batteries need to be replaced.

For the Davis console the nano seems to be a normal logger.
AND before adding a logger to a Davis console, you have to remove / drain all power from the console by following these steps:
1. remove the AC adapter from the console
2. remove the batteries from the console
3. wait at least a minute
4. Then and only then add the logger, in this case your Nano
5. Plug the AC adapter in the console and into the wall outlet
6. Add the batteries to the console
===
The MB message you see is a generic one and is used for loggers, either USB, serial or nano.
It is a very common problem, a Davis console will only accept the new logger correctly when it was completely without power when inserting the logger or Nano. Otherwise the communication between the console <=> logger will fail and no weather-program AKA Meteobridge can correctly connect to the console.
