I went on holidays and turned off the power supply to my SPA3000. Upon my return and returning power to the unit, I am now seeing the SOS repeating LED blinking pattern (3 shorts flashes, followed by two longer flashes, followed by 3 short flashes)... which indicates firmware corruption. Repowering, leaving off for extended period doesn't help. I've also attempted using the restore utility (rec3k-02-00-11-GWa.exe), but it comes back with the error message along the lines of "can't find the SPA with that serial number". The Link/Activity LED lights up and periodically flashes, but I can't ping the unit or browse to the IP address that the unit previously had. The phone connected to the unit has no dial tone and attempting to use "****" doesn't do anything.
Before chucking the unit, I'm wondering if anyone has any other suggestions in bringing it back to life.
There is a link to the firmware recovery app on this page on Whirlpool http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/archive/651427
I've only ever had 2 SPA's die out of several hundred that I've deployed. One lost all LED's and the other was a 2102 that basically flashed it's LED's to say it was dead and nothing would bring it back to life.
