Sure. But basically, all the subjects are getting cut off.

Gaza - can you make the subject line section in the forum topic list wider? It's cutting off the subject field really short.

Fast red LED blinking no blue LED

Slight problem with my APM board. Once the board has booted up (after the initial flurry of flashing blue and red leds)  my blue led shuts off and I get the red led blinking at around 2Hz. GPS and telemetry don';t seem to be working now.  :banghead:  :help:

Tried flashing new firmware,  an erase,  resets but still no luck.  Is this a hardware issue and what could it be if it is?

I can still arm and start the motors. Won';t pre arm check failure technically stop me arming?

Yup. Arming results in steady red LED but no blue led  :(

sounds to me like a hardware issue

did u try to test the apm without gps and telemetry connected ?
try it without anything connected
see if the blue led flashes as there is no gps module

rickp

I';d check the cabling to the GPS - make sure its firmly attached and no bent pints etc.

shazzy

I';ve taken everything off and tried it again. No luck. I still get the red led blinking at a slow rate but no blue led. :(

When it happened to me, I found the soldering flux had not been washed off and was bridging the GPS and Telem pins on the rear of the APM. I used a plastic biro pentop to gently clear between each pin and all was well again.

Its wierd, it was working for a month and then just one day it stopped and the blue light wouldnt come on after booting.
Ive got some PCB alcohol stuff which i might use to clean every nook and cranny and see if it helps. Cheers Dek,  :beer2:
