LED on the Polar 3d

After updating to the most recent firmware, 16.06.23, my printer will not receive print jobs, and when it does its networking light cycle, it goes from no light, to red, to orange, to yellow, to green, and now it is on purple and will not do anything but send video feed to the cloud. I can control all of the features from local IP though. Please help, I really like this machine!

I do not have an answer for you.  I am migrating this post to a support ticket and will discuss with a developer today.  Its great to see folks using the forum, but I would encourage you to submit support tickets in parallel.  You will typically get a much quicker response from our support team on a ticket.

I'm also getting purple LEDs. I have re-flashed my SD cards with the latest image file, connect via Hotspot to run \setid?id=P3DXXXXX, and when it reboots the printer just gets stuck with a purple light. PLEASE HELP! I thought I'd fixed all these issues months ago, but they keep coming back...

same problem here any help?

I continue to have problems with P3D00633. I've reflashed the SD card several times. The furthest I've gotten is to setid on it before I lost my connection. It seems to cycle through hotspot mode, then the LED goes green, lights on camera flash for a second, then it goes back to a RED-ORANGE-BLUE cycle of LEDs. If I time it *just* right, I can connect and quickly try to connect to my wi-fi, but then it never connects (light stays PURPLE). 

I'm guessing it's an issue with the daughterboard? Any way I can troubleshoot this myself? It was working just fine before Christmas, but I haven't been able to print with it for months. 

One other thing I noticed today was that the fan on the back of the printer is running pretty slowly...maybe a power issue? I'm at a loss!

Thanks for your help.
