I’ve got an emonPi solar PV kit from Nov 2015. It’s been installed and has been working perfectly from then until just recently. A few days ago I noticed that all of the dashboards have stopped updating. Then I found that I wasn’t able to log into it using the usual web interface.
I rebooted the device but the problem is that it only seems to get part way through the bootup. I see this sequence on the built in screen:
“AC Wave Detected
Detected CT1 CT2”
And then it stays like that indefinately (i’ve waited a couple of days).
It’s connected via wired lan and the lights by the ethernet connector are blinking. It doesn’t appear on the network though. The button on the box doesn’t do anything.
If anyone has any ideas on how to bring it back to life that would be amazing!
I have an EmonPi, so I presume that I choose Solar PV 1 or Solar PV 2. The popup note says that this should only be done once on initialisation and that inputs and feeds will be created. I already have the feeds - just need the inputs. What should I do not to lose my data that i’ve just imported but still set up the inputs needed to drive the feeds I already have?
Hi @TrystanLea and @borpin
Where I’ve got to is that on the inputs page there are no inputs at all listed. It looks like no inputs were brought across from my backup/restore and no new inputs were created when I started the system up for the first time with my new sd card. Or perhaps some inputs were created briefly (I didn’t know to check) and were subsequently wiped out by the restore?
So if there are any instructions on how to create inputs manually having only a list of feeds, that would be the next thing to try.
I won’t be back home till the weekend so will only be able to check log and screenshot inputs page then.
