Huawei E5573 Wifi modem both lights keeps flashing

Hi, After resetting my Huawei E5573 Wifi modem both lights keeps flashing. I have tried resetting numerous times and also connecting to computer via USB minus battery but lights keep flashing. I mainly just want to know if it's broken or I need to by a new one. It would be greatly appreciated if some one had an answer. Thanks.

I don't have a E5573, but I have a E3372 & E5577.

Some things to try based on the my use of the two is:

  a) Pull the SIM out and use a pencil rubber clean the contacts and put it back in.  I had issues with a SIM in one of them when testing and it started to flash the LED.

  b) Connect to the PC and use one of the Hauwei apps (see https://yescrowd.optus.com.au/t5/Mobile/Is-it-possible-to-Telnet-into-either-the-B525-or-B818-that-O... for examples ) to see if you can find any problems.

 c) Try another Optus SIM in it. You could borrow one or buy a cheap one from Wollies or Coles or IGA for testing.

 

If all else fails then call support and good luck as you will need it. In my dealings support have no idea how to support the modems they sell, unless it's on the standard 101 support script.
