Pinebook Pro totally dead
#1
My PBP appears to have completely crapped itself.

It was working fine for a long time. This evening, I turned it on, not realizing that the battery had drained to nothing. It made it to the login screen fine, I saw that it was basically dead, and rushed to plug it in. Before I could get there, it died. So I plugged it in via USB (it looked to be charging fine), waited a good half an hour and turned it back on, still connected to USB.

It booted up, went to the login screen, but as soon as I logged in, the entire screen glitched out and went almost entirely white, with some tearing. It did not resolve itself after a couple minutes, and was completely unresponsive, forcing me to do a hard reset. It turned off, and now will not turn on whatsoever. No boot screen, no power light, no screen backlight, nothing.

What I have tried:
  • Booting from SD card
  • Turning off eMMC and again booting from SD
  • Reset button
  • Recovery button
  • Using a different eMMC module
  • reflashing the original eMMC module
Nothing has produced any results. Is it just toast?
