Phone wont turn on with any SD Card inserted
Forgive me if this has already been addressed but I have been searching everywhere for a week or so and haven't found a solution that was provided that works in my case.

Got my PinePhone Pro Explorer Edition and have been excited to try it outside of some funkiness as to be expected with a phone in this state of its like. The frustrating thing is everyone apparently can easily swap SD cards with new distros and explore! I can not.

I installed balenaEtcher and downloaded Ubports/Arch Phosh/Jump drive to various SD Cards. Tried this process from a Windows machine and also a Linux machine. When inserted into the PinePhone Pro the device doesn't boot/light up/vibrate or give any indication it is being turned on.

It appears to be turning on because to get the PinePhone Pro to turn on after the SD card is removed I have to remove/reseat the battery then press the power button.

When the card is inserted after the phone is booted I can run "sudo lsblk" and I can see that any of the test drives are available.

Any help would be much appreciated.
