Help anyone ? 3502 AP Recovery Problem

I have had one 3502 access points  die in the last few days. I suspect it was broken flash systems and are due for the bin. If anyone can offer  any confirmation or a way to fix it, I would be grateful.

On booting, it gives the following error:

Xmodem file system is available.

flashfs[0]: unable to allocate available block.

The system has been interrupted, or encountered an error

during initializion of the flash filesystem.  The following

commands will initialize the flash filesystem, and finish

loading the operating system software:

    flash_init

    ether_init

    tftp_init

    boot

ap:

Trying to wake up the flash:

ap: flash_init

Initializing Flash...

flashfs[0]: unable to allocate available block.

...done Initializing Flash.

ap: dir flash

unable to stat flash/: permission denied

I have tried the standard recovery mode of uploading a new firmware via TFTP, but I can't even set variables:

ap: set IP_ADDR 10.0.0.1

flash:/env_vars.tmp: invalid argument

The filesystem containing the variables may not be initialized yet.

It's like my flash: it's all CLEAN not even system file is left.

I wonder if my access point is broken ?

Re: Help anyone ? 3502 AP Recovery Problem

It does seem like your flash went bad. Usually I can initialize the flash but again, I haven't had a bad ap. If you followed the process in this link and it does still fail, then yes, your ap is bad.
