I carefully went through the startup, powered by a micro USB. Everything went fine, I setup the image onto the SD card, loaded it, went through the initial setup, created password, etc.
Then immediately after logging in for the first time, it went dead.
I’ve since purchased and tried a barrel jack for power, nothing.
I’ve tried to reconnect the micro USB, nothing
I’ve removed and put back the sd card, nothing
With the mircoUSB connection the light will turn on for a second then turn off. With the barrel jack there is no response at all. I tried removing the sd card and putting it back in, removing the HDMI and putting it back in.
I’m lost as where to go next, please let me know. At this point the device appears totally bricked, I cannot get any response other than the light coming on for a second.
Started the device in recovery mode (pins 9 and 10)
This caused the light to stay on, but no other noticeable affect, the screen is blank, no image, it’s as if it’s not connected at all, this was with micro USB power
reset the device, same thing, the light stayed on, but no other noticeable affect
initiated power on (pins 11 and 12), nothing happened
I’m running out of ideas here, the last thing I saw was a login screen where I logged for the first time, I pressed enter and then nothing, it was as if it went dead right then and there, since then other than the light being on sometimes, there is no evidence the device is even running.
IF anyone out there has any ideas, please reply, I have tried everything I can think of.
I’m going to wait til the end of the day, but without any progress my only move left is replacement. I’m just concerned a replacement is going to take me right back here. I don’t get it, I followed the instructions to a T
I also tried all the above things with the barrel jack as the power source, still nothing, force recovery mode keeps the light on, but that’s it, nothing ever shows up on the screen, it’s otherwise dead. Other than the light no evidence that it’s even on.
