How do I reset a Cable Node?

There are two ways to reset a cable node; using the red jumper supplied with the cable node and using a strong magnet placed against the side of a closed cable node.

Red Jumper Procedure


  1. Using a Phillips head screwdriver, removed the 3 screws on the top of the node.
  2. Inside the node enclosure, the red jumper is located on one of two pins.  To deactivate the node to charge it, place the jumper on both pins.
  3. After 30 seconds, remove the jumper from both pins and return it to original position on one pin only.
  4. Replace the node cover and screws.
  5. Upon successful node reactivation, log into your OPI Blue account or contact your OPIsystems Customer Success rep to confirm the node is in operation. 

Magnet Procedure


  1. While the node is fully closed you can reset it with a magnet. Line the magnet up next to the clear plastic cover on the cable node, next to where the green printed circuit board is closest to the clear plastic cover. 
  2. Run the magnet from top to bottom next to the side of the PCB
  3. You should see lights flash for a successful reboot.
