Typical Problem Description:

1. One of the Deco units stuck in constant yellow light mode and was not able to enter setup mode (blue blinking light);

2. One of the Deco units goes into this reboot loop of Solid Yellow > Blinking Yellow > Blinking Blue > Off > Solid Yellow, this cycle keeps on repeating.


For the solid red light, please have a look at this link: https://community.tp-link.com/en/home/forum/topic/267192.

For the flashing red light on the Deco, it means Deco was offline, and please have a look at this link: https://www.tp-link.com/support/faq/2428/.


Troubleshooting suggestions:

1. Please hold the reset pinhole at the bottom of the Deco for 1s and check whether the light could be back to yellow---flashing blue.

2. If the factory reset did not make any difference, please refer to this link to do a firmware recovery:
