Pinebook Pro won't turn on
#1
I just received my Pinebook Pro. I opened the box, and hit the power button, but nothing happens. I plugged the charger in, and I see a tiny LED near the barrel connector that is red, but then it turns off after about a minute. No other lights come on, and after a half hour of being plugged into the charger, the unit still won't power on. Any suggestions?

How did you hit that button? Short or long hit?

Both. A tap, and a long hold.

A tap won't turn it on, a press about a second turns it on.

If I understand correctly, the power led should remain lit while connected to the power supply.

I'm having the same issue. Long press, 1 second press, tap, etc, nothing works. I'm wondering if something wasn't connected correctly inside.

Same issue.  Red light by the barrel, but no other indication of power.  Short presses, long presses, no activity on the panel display or keyboard lights

I'm going to remove the back panel tomorrow morning and see if everything is connected properly.

I'm looking at mine now, and everything seems to connected.  I even tried disconnecting the battery and connecting the bypass.  Still didn't power on.

I even removed AC power, Disconnected the bypass, replaced the battery, and held down the power switch for 30 secs.  Still nothing

Success! I reseated the eMMC again with a bit more force and this time there was a more positive click. I then hit the reset button on the board and the laptop booted up.

I just tried the same thing, and I didn't have any success   Sad
