I bought two XBee S1 modules a few months ago and had them working. I let me sit for a while and when I tried communicating with them, they no longer worked. I am communicating with them using an Arduino XBee shield attached to an Arduino Uno with the ATMega removed and both jumpers set to the “XBEE” position.
I open X-CTU and try to update the firmware but get the following error.
Getting modem type…Failed to enter command mode
Check Com Port and Baud settings and try again.
I checked “Always update firmeware”
Selected XB24 for the modem
Selected XBEE 802.15.4 for the function set
I also tried “Enable API” and “Use escape characters (ATAP = 2)” checked an unchecked.
When clicking “Test / Query”, I get the “Action Required” dialog. I have been jumping pins 5 and 10 to reset the module. Nothing happens. Does anyone have an suggestions?
X-CTU version 184.108.40.206
XBee modem: XB24-ACI-001 revD
