TROUBLESHOOTING

Tips and Tricks to debug your MetaSensor Device:

General Items:

  • The LEDs on the board DO NOT automatically turn on. LEDs are NOT an indicator of your MetaSensor status.

  • Your Smartphone must Bluetooth 4.0 compliant.

  • Make sure Bluetooth is ON.

  • Debug with the latest iOS phone or Android device (iPhone 7 or later).

  • Delete the MetaBase App on your Smartphone and download the latest version.

  • Debug one MetaSensor at a time (put all other Bluetooth devices out of reach).

Sleep Mode:

  • All MetaSensors are shipped in sleep mode to conserve battery.

  • Did you press the button to wake it up?

  • Wait 30 seconds and your device will be visible by your Smartphone.

  • Do not use your phone menu to connect to the sensor, use the MetaBase App ONLY.

Charge It:

  • Charge compatible devices using a micro-USB cable and AC adapter.

  • Charge your device for a MINIMUM of 40 minutes.

  • The USB port is for power only, it does not transfer data!

Replace It:

  • Use a fresh new battery! You can buy additional coin cell batteries on Amazon or on our store.

  • Insert the CR2032 or CR2450 battery (+) side up.

Reset and Update:

  • Connect to your device using the MetaBase App and update the firmware.

  • Run a diagnostic scan and email us the results.

  • If your device is in MetaBoot mode, it may automatically update (let it finish).

Soft Reset:

  • If you cannot connect via the MetaBase App:

  • Plug in the micro-USB cable or insert in a new Coin-cell battery at the same time that you press down the button on the device.

  • Release the button only once the cable or batter has been fully inserted (device should be charging/powered).

  • This will cause the device to reset for 60 seconds.

  • After waiting, connect to your device using the MetaBase App.

Hard Reset (PROs ONLY):

  • If your device is completely unresponsive after following all the previous steps, you can perform a hard reset:

  • Use conductive material such as a wire or tweezers and short any PWR and GND pins on the board while the device is powered.

  • Please refer to the datasheet to find the best PWR and GRD pins on the device to short.

  • Success will be indicated by a dimly flashing LED during the shorting process.

  • Please note this process may void the warranty. This step is for professionals ONLY!

Returns and Exchanges (RMA):

  • MetaSensors have a 30 day limited warranty (free DOA replacement or repair).

  • If you want to submit an RMA request, please fill out this form.

  • We may require you to submit a Diagnostic report, Photos, and Videos.

  • DEVICES OUT OF WARRANTY OR RETURNED WITHOUT AN RMA # WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.
