Red light only on boot up (no green or flashing green light). Unit won't start.

If the Stratux unit boots up with only a red light and no green or flashing green light you should reflash the microSD card.

If you're unable to reflash the microSD card you may have a defective card. You can purchase a new one for $3 or contact us to get a replacement.

Normal boot up indications are solid red and solid green light. When you first apply power you'll notice a one quick green light flash that indicates you have a good SD card. If you plug in and there's only a red light, you know it's a bad SD card.
