My LTS boots fine (eMMC) with Armbian Buster and an HDMI monitor connected. I'm powering via the supplied 5V/3A barrel connector ps. However with the LCD DSI cable attached, the LTS will not boot - the green power light comes on, dims slightly, then goes out after a couple of seconds.

It seems I'm not the only one with this issue:

Does this seem like a hardware issue? On that discussion, someone mentioned a similar issue until they used a swapped out the A64 board.
On advice from the Pine Support Team I double-checked that I had the latest Armbian image (5.4.20) and re-downloaded it for a re-flash. No change.
I have since attached a battery and swapped the jumper on power select jumper to select BAT. The LTS now boots with the LCD DSI & TS cables connected, but I get a problem during boot which tells me:

Failed to start Load Kernel Modules.
See systemctl status systemd-modules-load.service

Which reveals:

For some reason the gt9xxf_ts module isn’t found.
Also note that when I edit /boot/armbianEnv.txt, the pine64_lcd line isn’t present as implied by the note in the instruction “Change off to on”.

Any ideas?

Hello GregH,

This module is no longer required the good module is goodix. It supports the panel.

I can say that the LTS doesn't boot for me either when the LCD panel is connected. It will boot, LCD will work, but just before login it just shuts down.

Can you detail what did you do to make it work?

Best regards,
