Rock64 Rev3 doesn't boot and leds blinking fast
#1
Hello,

I just purchased a 4gb Rock64 Rev3 model and i'm struggling in getting any image to boot properly, i tried latest Armbian, mrfixit and ayufan's image. Whenever i plug my power supply (5v 4A) the white, red and ethernet led starts blinking very fast while the green blink slowly. If i plug in and out my power supply it will eventualy boot, but never from the first time. Maybe my board is defective? Anyone else has this issue?

Sounds like a power issue, the green LED should be on solid when plugged in regardless if the board is booted or shutdown as it's hardwired to the power socket..

I'm not sure, my Rock64 1gb Rev1 board boots fine with the same power supply, also, if i plug and replug several times it will eventually boot. Is the Rev3 more power hungry. Actually the green led behaves more like a DIM than blink i should say.
