When I plugged it in to my PC via USB, it powered up and appeared to have a “blink” type application running on it as it was blinking every couple seconds.
On my PC I installed the arduino IDE and the esp8266 libraries and was able to upload a simple sketch.
After uploading though and resetting, it doesnt run anything.
I have reverted even to just trying to use the example blink sketch that comes with the esp8266 libraries, even with that, no light, nothing.
The only thing I can see in the serial monitor is messages like
ets Jan 8 2013,rst cause:2, boot mode:(3,6)
load 0x4010f000, len 1384, room 16
I have since tried flashing with a new firmware from the nodemcu cloud builder, but still no success!
I am not sure what I am doing wrong, it seemed like it worked before I uploaded anything.
