If the solutions at that web page do not help, you could also try performing a Hard Reset on the Mesa 2 by tapping on Start > Power > Shut Down, wait until the screen and red LED turn off (which can take a minute), hold the hardware Power button for 20 seconds, release the button then attach wall charger, briefly press the Power button again, wait for the unit to complete boot, move to an outdoor open sky location, and then test ESRI Collector for ArcGIS again.
