Proxmark3 Easy stopped being detected by computer (bricked?)

Hello all,

For a while I have an elechouse proxmark3 easy (as seen here: ) - at first it worked great reading & writing rfid fobs/keys on OSX. However, after a few weeks of not using the unit, when plugged in to the same OSX laptop, it is not being recognized with the usual "ls /dev/cu*"

When plugged in to PC, the light sequence is as follows:

1) All lights blink (A, B, C, D) & power LED is white
2) D light blinks again. color blue
3) Only power LED remains white, all others are off.

By pressing the power button it appears to be working in stand-alone mode, if connected while holding the power button, the light sequence is as follows:

1) Power LED = white
2) All lights blink (ABCD), but only (A = green, C = red) remain on

Under this mode it also is not detected with "ls /dev/cu*"

Has anyone experienced something similiar? Any help or suggestions is highly appreciated, thanks!

Hello there,

I have exactly the same problem after not using my proxmark for a month.
Cannot manage to make it work again.
If anyone got ideas I am up for it
