Color expansion module in a boot loop

Currently using a VVX 600 (UC 5.5.1.12442) with 1 color expansion module hooked up. The combo was working fine until today when I accidentally unplugged the AUX cable from the phone. I plugged the AUX cable back in to turn the EM back on, but now the EM is just continuously booting, turning off and back on. I've tried resetting the phone to defaults but the EM is still just booting. I could not find any relevant information in the app/boot log file unless perhaps I was looking in the wrong place. Any advice?

Hi Steffen,

 

Thanks for the advice, I tried factory resetting the phone again with the EM connected but the behavior persists. I uploaded a video in case anyone is curious what it is doing.

In checking the logs again, it occurs to me there are several relevant messages. I have attached the log if you wouldn't mind taking a look.

Hello orderedchaos,

the VVX itself was sold via SCANSOURCE COMMUNICATIONS back in 20/03/2014 so not sure if the expansion module is from the same time and still has warranty.

 

Please try:

 

Settings > Logging > Global Log Level Limit > Debug
Settings > Logging > Log File Size (Kbytes) > 160
Settings > Logging > Module Log Level Limits > EM > Debug

 

Your Video shows they are not connected so just make sure the cable between the phone and the expansion module is properly seated and the two are attached to each other.

Re: Color expansion module in a boot loop

Thank you, I have made sure the cable is nice and snug in the AUX port and AUX1 on the EM. I do not see those logging options under settings on my phone, not sure on that. I got this module direct from Polycom on 3/30/15, SN AP0A1424086B, under RMA Number: SBL737482 so I am guessing it is no longer under warranty.

Hello orderedchaos,

I am not aware of any issues in the field and it should be here:

This is from a phone running the current GA 5.5.1.12442

Re: Color expansion module in a boot loop

Thanks for your help Steffen, but I think this thing is bricked. Don't know how I managed that by just unplugging it, but oh well. Time to get a new one. Thanks again!

Re: Color expansion module in a boot loop

For the record, I skipped an important step and forgot to verify that it was not actually the phone that was the issue. I ordered a new sidecar and the new one had the same issue so I tested the old sidecar on another phone and sure enough it worked fine. The AUX port on my phone is fried.
