R9000 not working blinking some lights

Hi, this morning my router stoped working an some lights are blinking constantly.
The lights that are blinking white are power-internet-usb1-usb2-and the two last keys.
Blinking Amber and softer all the Ethernet ports.
I made some research and triyed a 30-30-30 reset but nothing happened.

Please some help.

30-30-30 reset has no effect on ARM-based routers. It's a relic of the past and many people still think it works, which it doesn't. 


Your router is most likely bricked (did you have Firmware Auto-Update turned on? if so, DO NOT DO THAT AND TURN IT OFF). For debricking, try the TFTP steps at https://kb.netgear.com/000059633/How-to-upload-firmware-to-a-NETGEAR-router-using-TFTP-client

Thanks microchip8,

But unfortunately it didn't work.
I also tried with the cmd console of windows but the tftp cmd doesn't exist.

Is there any other way to try?
