Model: HS200
Hardware Version: V2
Firmware Version: 1.5.7

Trying to install a HS200 and having the issue many others have had with the lights flashing when initially turning on then the lights go immediately off. The WiFi cone also goes orange when I try to turn on the lights. I've checked the neutral wire like others have suggested but still nothing is work. Anyone have other ideas?

Do you have a picture of the wireing of the old switch?

I had the exact same issues!  I called, chatted, and emailed to tech support and was extremely disappointed with their response/level of knowledge.  I initially wired it up and-like you-experienced a flickering light bulb. At the switch, I had orange/green lights per the instructions, and I was able to connect to the wi-fi.  Using the switch, I tried to manually turn it off, but the switch didn't work.  After that, the switch light went blinking orange all of the time.

 

I have reset, rebooted, and re-wired the switch...now each time I put power to it, it immediately goes to blinking orange light and I have been unable to connect to the wi-fi.  It is almost as if something is fried.

 

Did you ever get yours to work?  If so, what did you do?

Mine is wired correctly, it powers up, but only flashes orange, never green. Before I tried to hook up wifi, I manually turned on the light and the bulb flickered a few times then stopped working. With it only flashing orange, I can't get it to generate a wifi signal, there is no TP-LINK wifi. I'm going to return it and assume it is just defective. I had already installed one switch that works great, but something is not right with this one.
