I am trying to program a new AGX board.
So far, According to the getting started guide,
- Ensured device is powered off
- USB type C has been connected between PC and front side USB-C connector of dev board.
- Pressing and holding FORCE RECOVERY and power button while plugging in the provided power adapter
However, the device does not show up on my PC (not VM) . I.e, lsusb does not list any NVIDIA devices.
Also, another thing I observed is that the Power LED next to USB-C connector just blinks and does not stay on as seen in some NVIDIA getting started videos. Like this one for example.
Request any help I could get on this.
There is an order to set device into recovery mode. It is not holding force recovery + power together.
The correct oreder is press and hold the recovery key ->Press and hold the poweron key ->Release the poweron key → Release the recovery key.
I tried your suggestion. Here is the sequence I followed.
Power off and pull out any connection to AGX → Connect USB-C to PC → Connect the other end to AGX → Press the FORCE RECOVERY button → Plug in the power adapter → Press the power button → Release the Power button → Release the FORCE RECOVERY key.
This still did not work. However, as I mentioned earlier, I notice a short blink on the power LED when I press the power key, and this LED does not stay on after pressing the power key.
Does this mean anything?
My Bad, had a typo. I followed the button sequence that you mentioned.
I do not have any other board to validate the adapter.
Also, the adapter That I am using is the one shipped with
It was indeed a power issue. The AC power cord was loosely connected to the adapter. This issue is now fixed. I can detect the NVIDIA device over usb now. Thank you Wayne :)
