Any ideas?

Have you put a microSD card with an operating system on it into the relevant slot on the Pine A64 board?

I purchased it with the microSD (which I was under the impression came with the OS on... seem to remember reading that somewhere). I have inserted this card into the board.

But regardless of the OS should there not be some sort of output to the display, even if it's an error?

If there's no OS, there's no display output.

I would try burning the OS onto the microSD again. It could be that they sent you a blank by mistake. 

Which operating system do you want to try out?

Which do you recommend? I am just playing at present so will probably try a few.

Well, you've got the software download page here.

Debian might be a good place to start. You can find a link here. If you are using a Windows PC to burn the OS, you might want to use Win32DiskImager. If you are using a Mac, try Etcher or ApplePi Baker. Or if you are using a Linux-based system, you may be at home using the dd command via a terminal.

So, download the image, download the appropriate burning software if necessary, burn the image onto the microSD, then try putting the microSD into the Pine again and try booting once more.
