Sometime in the last two weeks (I’ve been away on vacation), my BrewPi Spark 3 started having problems.
Not sure if it’s related, but my Raspberry Pi also had issues (Linux filesystem problems on the SD card).
The Spark 3 will be at the logo screen with the “Tap screen to re-calibrate touch” message. After 2-3 minutes, there will be a beep and it will reset. It will do this indefinitely. When I power it off and back on, it will start working again, but only for a couple of hours.
The Spark 3 is running firmware 0.5.10 (has been since I got it in January).
I’ve fixed the Raspberry Pi by swapping out the SD card for a new one and installing the docker image on it.
Any pointers on how to get my Spark working again would be appreciated.
Thanks for the replies Bob and Elco. I’m running my Raspberry Pi with Raspbian Stretch (fresh install, and updated as of Sunday) with a wired ethernet connection (no wifi). I’m running a USB cable between the Raspberry Pi and the Spark 3.
I’ll try BrewBlox and report back if the issue persists or is resolved.
I’ve been having wifi and database issues with a new install of BrewBlox and experienced this issue no more than 10 minutes ago. I’ve reverted to connecting via USB in the last 48 hours to try and remove variables.
I’m about to try and update again and re-flash the firmware to see if it helps.
I’ll keep you updated as well.
No my spark is displaying 3 temperatures from 3 probes that I setup when I could get a connection to the spark. I still can’t see it but that’s a separate issue.
I was getting the wiring setup for the relays on my fermentation fridge when it rebooted.
I’ve checked for loose wiring and that doesn’t appear to be the issue.
Sure but I’m not sure it will give you a lot as I can’t see any services due to the datastore issue.
I’ve been messing with it so much trying to make it work I’m not 100% sure the problem isn’t me any more.
Will post the log in a few moments.
Interesting tidbit that will help me help you.
Chrome (normal) doesn’t display the “spark-one” service or actions menu.
Chrome (incognito) and Firefox do display the “spark-one” service or actions menu but cannot connect to the controller.
I will in future check in multiple browsers before asking for help.
That is a new symptom. In regular chrome, when you open the dev tab (ctrl+shift+i), and go to the network tab before refreshing the page, does it show a 502 error when it tries to access the datastore?
You said earlier you were reverting to USB. You do realise your docker-compose.yml file still has --device-host specified? Replace that line with --discovery=usb to only use USB connections.
