Pinebook wont turn on. Keeps blinking power light
#1
Hey, so when I got my Pinebook, for some reason I can’t do anything with it. I have a SD card with a image and everything but when I plug it in to a AC adapter, it just blinks the power light and nothing happens. Please help

Did you leave it charging for a couple hours? Usually they are not shipped with full batteries and need to be charged first...

Please make sure that your microSD card loaded with Pinebook OS build, not PINE A64 OS build.

It is, I have flashed an SD card on the pine64 installer with armbian selected. Did not work, I also tried android but also did not work. Its like the pinebook turns on and off because it also makes a weird high pitched sound and it goes on and on. nothing so far is working, I even tried removing the battery and running on AC power but nothing.

Please unplug and plug in battery again and then plug in power supply, check whether this method will boot up. You can repeat this step several times until the Pinebook can boot. Once boot up, lets keep the power supply plug in until fully charge. The high pitch noise may due to the charger protection circuit keep trigger and rest.
