F48 Stops Sending Data

I have the f48 which is still on v2.02 and has ran great for several years now. However, I noticed that it began to act funny a few nights ago, randomly cutting off etc.. I've had it in test mode it will work but then just stop after a while. I have done a factory reset and have set it to DHCP to eliminate any network configuration issues I have, it picked up an ip address of and I am able to use xLights to send data to the lights, but then it will just stop sending the data. The lights remain in the last state they were when it stopped sending data and then when trying to connect to the web interface via browser I am no longer able to connect to it. The OLED still shows the ip address but I am now no longer able to connect to it. Any help would be greatly appreciated!


I had a similar problem. I had added some props to the show and updated existing sequences.  When I ran them using the bridge option, they would randomly freeze.  It took a while, but I finally figured out my problem was that the output string configuration for the ports were not set up right.  I had modified the number of pixels on the port, but did not update the addresses on the F48. This caused an overlap of addresses so when that specific pixel was turned on, the system froze because it didn't know what to do.

Hope this helps.
