Cubieboard has died?
« on: January 06, 2015, 03:44:10 pm »
Hello.

I've been compiling mplayer2 on Cubieboard and after some time terminal with ssh freezed (cubie obviously hanged). I've plugged of power connector and plugged back but only red led with leds in ethernet connector blinked and cubie not started. I've changed power source and even try to power cubie thru otg port but it's all the same. Have someone similar problem and know how to resolve it?

Thanks for replay and sorry for my English.

Ok. I reply to me. It looks like CPU is burned. There is short circuit between Allwinner A10 DLLVDD pins and ground. CPU was on 1,08GHz not overclocked on performance governor, but died under high load (overtemperature?). Be warned and use some heatsink for it. I'm thinking if I should buy Allwinner A20 and try to replace CPU. Have someone done this self? Because prices for change BGA in local services are to high (for that price I'll buy new CB2).
