Trimble R1 Press and Hold to Pair Bluetooth Turns off R1

I have searched around for this issue. This may be a faulty R1, or I'm doing something incredibly stupid (not first time).


I have an R1, upgraded to latest FW.  R1 is charged, and healthy.

I turn on R1.  R1 goes into Blue and Yellow flash, indicating, (GPS acquistion, but No BT).

Per instructions, I need to PRESS and HOLD POWER BUTTON 5 seconds, which should engage the BT pairing MODE.  

But this R1 after 1, 2 or 3, 4, 5 seconds press and hold turns to two red lights, then one red light (POWER), and turns off.

I cannot get this R1 to go into Double Blue flash mode which indicates PAIRING MODE.


Any suggestions? In normal situations, like with a Geo, I would do a HARD reset, but not possible with an R1.


Thanks.##R1 Bluetooth Troubleshooting
