PINEPHONE not booting
#1
Wink 
Hello all,

I am not sure if I should introduce myself, if not: just ignore:

My name is Albert, I am from Denmark. I am an ethical hacker. The name Touchwood comes from the frog, the wizard Catweazle always has with him.

To the case:
I just received my Pinephone - Beta.
But it won't boot up. I put a USB charger stick into the USB-C port. The led at the top turned red, then green, while the phone is vibrating. I can see the display is lit, but nothing happens. Then the LED shuts, and the process continues several times, before it stops doing anything.

What could cause this problem?

Possible battery already fully drained, please follow this wiki page: https://wiki.pine64.org/wiki/PinePhone#T...is_drained

I am so sorry - I missed a very, very basic thingy: that darned plastic strip between battery and connectors.

However, I caught another problem, but before writing on this forum, I will try read me through a solution.
