    Not sure if this is the right section but here goes...

    I have issues with accessing my BBB and want to do a reflash but despite multiple attempts it won't work.
    I have fpp currently installed on the eMMc.
    When trying the reflash no lights start flashing and despite leaving for well over an hour no reflash takes place.

    Is there a way to do a hard reset and then fresh fpp install?

    For the record, the BBB is currently visible in IP scan and does ping, however is completely inaccesable in fpp, through the browser and through xlights. Its like its not even there.

    Sounds like the card may not be loading. Did you use the sd formater and full erase the card or when you loaded the bbb image did you extraxt the files to load to sd. Doesnt sond like the boot loader is booting

    It couldn't get it to reflash but now have accessed the current software and got access.

    For some reason adding my ISP router as gateway in the BBB config got it going.
