bricked router after wrong region firmware upgrade and reset button not working
2020-04-08 02:09:21
Model: Archer D7
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: upgraded to (US) 150924 but I think this is (EU) router

Router refused to switch from DSL mode to Wireless Router mode, so I flashed new firmware from tp-link website, but instead of going from 150324 to 150514, I flashed 150924 (US) on this EU router (EU power block).Now there is no wired network light with cable plugged in. Only power light is on. Reset button completely unresponsive even 30 30 30. Tried to flash original firmware with TFTP but no joy. Still no network light and reset button does nothing and cannot communicate with router on 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1. Thanks.

We do not have a official firmware recovery method for that model unfortunately. Other users have mentioned using TFTP as a recvery method. If that is not working in your case the device may be bricked.
