All GE zwave devices and Springs Window Fashions zwave blinds stopped working after reboot

I had a power outage and when everything came up I’m having issues with most of my zwave devices, 8 blinds and all GE light switches. Zigbee seems fine and I have lots of smart things sensors that are working fine. I’ve tried reseating the zwave dongle and doing a heal on the zwave network.

If I use a zwave switch it will be seen by the dashboard but if I try to turn on or off I get the log message below. If I use the switch again it appears to be functional by HA but I get the same error. I can’t control any of these zwave devices. If I try to add them to zwave again the window that says “interrogating device, this may take some time.” comes up and the interrogation never finishes…

I’ve tried upgrading to current and that didn’t help, may have made it worse… I used to be able to control the 3 blinds that are initially seen but not after upgrades. I also restored down to the last backup and that didn’t help, I’m having the same issue. I’m now restoring back to latest, may as well but I need to get this working and hope I don’t have to redo all of my automations for all of these devices…
Home Assistant 2022.10.1 Supervisor 2022.09.1 Operating System 9.0 Frontend 20221006.0 - latest.

This is the warning message in the info tab for a light is, “This entity is no longer being provided by the zwave_js integration. If the entity is no longer in use, delete it in settings.”
The message in the log in the same window is… " became unavailable triggered by service switch.turn_on"

Any help is appriciated as I don’t even seem to be able to start over and add the devices.

Thanks in advance,

I don’t know if this helps, but I have had my Z-stick a couple of times, after a system reboot, get into a non-functional state. My solution was to disable ZWaveJS, pull out the Zstick, after around 10-20 seconds plug it back in and then restart ZwaveJS.

Ok, there’s 2 parts to the solution here… First I had to update the FW on my zooz 700 stick from 7.15 to 7.17.2.

I also turned on debugging level logging on the zwave logs and saw I had a runaway acks from 1 light switch. Once I tripped the breaker on that switch I’m now able to re-interview the devices and they’re interviewing and coming back.

Thanks for those who helped with this!
