Cubieboard 2 - No power to board.
« on: October 27, 2015, 06:10:47 pm »
Hey everyone, I've had a look through all the FAQ's and previous posts around power issues but none seemed entirely relevant to my issue.

I have had my cubieboard for well over a year now, I've had Android and several linux builds on it over the months... For the past 4 months, the unit has sat unused and without power and today when I try to boot it up, it doesn't seem to be receiving power.
  • Via PC to mini USB - the device registers on windows, but is unable to successfully associate ANY drivers. After 5mins connectivity, USB cable becomes very warm
  • Via provided USB to 5V power - no lights show, device shows no bootup signs
  • Via 3rd party wall socket to 5V-2A power - as above

These exact cables have worked previously with no flaws, there are no devices or peripherals attached to the board.

If anyone could shed some light, or advise me (a cubieboard novice) on how to 'reboot' back to it's original self, it would be much appreciated!

If there is any other info I should provide, please let me know  :)

bump!

I'm assuming I've got a dead board on my hands? :(
