Dave, Thanks for the responce. Yes I did try reconnecting the USB port several times with several cables and wall warts. Initially the red internal light came on and eventually went out. I assume that indicated that it was charged. I tried pushing the refresh button(Reset) several times also. I also tried to power it via the usb converter. The small red light on the converter(Supplied with the complete unit) which indicated (to me) that the internal battery was supplying the voltage because I hadn't plugged in the usb cable yet. I also tried to readthe TX from the unit wit coolterm. The only readable printing came up when I switched to 77500 baud? should have been set for 115200 in the setup. I did get some reporting BUT it did not start the weather program. That is when I rebuilt and relaoded the program. It started right up!
