The error that relates to the blinking of flashing red and green lights is the syncing mode. The blinking indicates that the device has entered the syncing mode. You can make your device work properly if you sync it before restarting it.
This is done using your laptop or your mobile device. You can either use the web page or the app to control your device’s functions.
Just link the app with the device and set the functions to how you want them to be. You should make an account first, only then you will be able to control it.
