Timeout when waiting for > (timeout: 5000) onConnected

Read similar forums but cant seem to fix it using the recommended solutions.
I get this error for the Himax WE-I Plus board

Edge Impulse serial daemon v1.16.0
Websocket: wss://remote-mgmt.edgeimpulse.com
API: https://studio.edgeimpulse.com

? Which device do you want to connect to? COM3 (FTDI)

I have flashed the edge impulse firmware using the .bat script and this succeeded.
What can I do next to fix this ?


Hello @yannick1203,

Have you tried to press the reset button after flashing the board?
That’s an known “issue” for the Himax WE-I plus board.



Hi @louis,

Thanks for the quick reply, yes I did press the reset button after flashing.
Also, should the LED’s be on to indicate any status ? Because they are both off.


Hi @louis,
In addition, i looked at the bootloader using Tera Term:

And all seems fine, the Edge Impulse message is also shown.

Is there anything else I can do ?
