All our devices are on a timer. They turn off at night and start in the morning.

Just now noticed that OBi 200 power LED is blinking red and green. I power cycled the device but it didn't change anything.

A quick google search leads me to https://www.obitalk.com/info/faq/Troubleshooting-sec/power-light-meanings It says, the power went out while the firmware update. The link to the troubleshooting guide goes to 404.
I found an alternative link https://www.obitalk.com/info/support/troubleshooting but I am unable to find a link to the firmware.

Does anyone have a link for the firmware?

Thanks in advance.

It's in an appropriately titled sticky thread in this very section of the forum.

(When you have your OBi sorted out, perhaps a visit to your optician would be in order!)

Thank you for your reply.

I actually did notice the sticky but the firmware listed in the thread is from 2019. When I did a bit of googling to understand the flashing light, I read that power loss during firmware upgrade would be a cause. So I assumed that there is a newer version.

Why are you removing power from all your "devices" every night?  That's really asking for trouble.

I have this problem too (and my thinking was the same .. combined with the relative non-lived-in look of the forums..). And, updating the firmware does nothing to solve the problem. Same with you OP?

Don't get your hopes up but it is worth trying a factory reset as per Step 2 of https://www.obitalk.com/info/faq/Troubleshooting-sec/How-to-Factory-Reset
