Hello,

I bought 3 ESP32-PoE but I cannot flash anything on them.

I tried to break it down and I cannot even read the MAC address (with esptool):

A fatal error occurred: Failed to connect to Espressif device: Invalid head of packet (0x00)


If I use putty to print out the serial port communication I get the following output:

Using 'COM3' as serial port.

I also tried an external USB power (max 9,9W) but the error is the same.

The behaviour is the same for each of the 3 ESP32 devices on two different PCs with two different USB to TTL adapters.

Does anybody knows this behaviour or have any idea what I can try to find the error?

Thanks a lot.

What happens if you use regular USB cable and connect it to the micro USB port of the board (instead of USB-TTL adapters)?
