PBP nearly dead
#1
I have booted up my PBP using the supplied Manjaro and set a username and password, but not changed anything else. I hit barriers over lack of wifi and tiny text which are both covered in the Wiki.  The PBP was put on charge but it will no longer start.  All that happens when I push the power button is that the power LED briefly flashes green.  It did restart once but then died immediately after I had logged in.

Where do I go from here?

Did you charge via USB-C or the barrel connector? What does the charge indicator (red LED) look like when charging? Constantly lit, or flashing?
My PBP will only recover from a totally flat battery when charged via the barrel connector.

Use the barrel charger and let it charge overnight.

I will do so again, and report back tomorrow.

Thanks

There is no change in behaviour after overnight charging from the supplied charger via the barrel port.

Have you already tried booting from SD, or removing the bottom cover to ensure your eMMC is properly seated?
