I just got a new Berry Unit via Amazon.  I performed the following:

download - 2019-09-26-raspbian-buster-lite.zip
Flash microSSD with Etcher
Place microSSD into rPi Zero W
sudo raspi-config
setup wireless access
enable ssh
reboot
putty into rPi Zero W
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
reboot
sudo raspi-config
interfacing options -> Serial -> No -> Yes
reboot
take unit outside on patio
turn power on
go back inside house
putty into rPi Zero W
cat /dev/serial0
wait 30 minutes

=== unit is working.  The other unit must be a DOA.

Thanks,

Blip, blop, bloop...
