When the Artemis collar has a yellow light that does not turn green or a red light when it is being charged, power switched on, or the device is used, everything is not OK and the following actions are required



Red LED light



While charging the device


- The device is in a fault condition (error, malfunctioning etc.)

- The red LED is flashing

- Check charger and charging cable

- Disconnect the charger from the wall outlet and the GPS device from the charger and wait a few minutes

- Reconnect the charger to the wall outlet and connect the GPS device to the charger and try again

- Charging works at a temperature of +5 to +30

- Note! Use only the Artemis' own charger and charging cable included in the package!

- You can also test with another Artemis charger that is known to work OK, if available

- If the problem was resolved when tested with another charger, then Artemis is ok, but the device's own charger is broken

- If necessary, you can also try to reset the GPS device back to the basic settings, i.e. the so-called factory settings


The Artemis GPS device's charger has a warranty of 6 months from the date of purchase (more information on warranty conditions can be found here)



If needed, a new charger can be bought from your local Tracker Retailer



When the device is switched ON


- The device is in a fault condition (error, malfunctioning etc.)

- Wait until the red LED light switches OFF

- If the red LED still stays switched ON, try restarting the device

- If the problem was not resolved by restarting the device, you can try to reset the GPS device back to the basic settings, i.e. the so-called factory settings

- If the red LED still stays switched ON, regardless of everything done so far, you should send the GPS device to Tracker Service / Maintenance

- Tracker Oulunsalo Service handles Artemis GPS device's maintenance (also outside warranty)

- If You would need to consult the Tracker Oulunsalo Service before sending the Artemis GPS device for maintenance, you can call them or send a ticket



When the device is used


- The device is in a fault condition (error, malfunctioning etc.)

- The red LED is flashing

- Take the device outdoors (if the problem occurred indoors) and turn off Artemis and restart

- If the problem was not resolved by restarting the device, you can try to reset the GPS device back to the basic settings, i.e. the so-called factory settings

- If there is power, the device is out and restarting or resetting will not help and the light will remain red -> The Artemis should be sent to Tracker Service / Maintenance 

- Tracker Oulunsalo Service handles Artemis GPS device's maintenance (also outside warranty)

- If You would need to consult the Tracker Oulunsalo Service before sending the Artemis GPS device for maintenance, you can call them or send a ticket




Yellow LED light



If the yellow light stays on continuously and does not turn green or turns red


- Restart the device

- If the problem was not resolved by restarting the device, you can try to reset the GPS device back to the basic settings, i.e. the so-called factory settings

- If the problem still persists, regardless of everything done so far, you should send the GPS device to Tracker Service / Maintenance

- Tracker Oulunsalo Service handles Artemis GPS device's maintenance (also outside warranty)

- If You would need to consult the Tracker Oulunsalo Service before sending the Artemis GPS device for maintenance, you can call them or send a ticket







In those situations where Artemis is logged in to the Tracker Live service (even momentarily) despite the problem, i.e. the collar still gets some connection, then Tracker's technical support can also help, so call or send a ticket 


If the Artemis does not seem to respond to any of the measures suggested above, then Tracker's support will not be able to help out and then it is better to send the collar to Tracker's Oulunsalo service so that they can find out and fix the problem. Tracker's Oulunsalo service can be reached by calling them or sending a ticket
