[Issue] All Rock leds are blinking
#1
Hi everyone,  I just bought a rock64 and my problem is that the leds (green, white and red) are always blinking...Someone can tell me whats happening? I have checked the input power, however I bought too the adapter with the rock64. 

I have noticed when all is in silent, you can heard a noise, like a clock that sound the same time the leds are blinking.

I need some help... I don't know what I should do, because is the first time trying to connect the rock64 and doesn't work.

Question, have you inserted an MicroSD or using SD->eMMC with an eMMC card init loaded with an O/S image or such ?
If so, does it give a video output ?

Also, I'd be curious to know if the 'ticking' is coming from the rock64, or the power supply... if it's the power supply, I hope you don't have a jumper installed on the rock64, because maybe you're shorting the power supply? Not sure what's happening with the leds though... standard behaviour is for the green (power present) led to be on, and the pine and blue lights on all the time (on linux, anyway).

Sinceresly, I don't believe the SD card is the problem. Anyway i have a MicroSD loaded with an Linux OS but If I don't insert the card and in the moment try to power on the board I get the same behaviour

Yes, I absolubly think that the sound coming from the Micro-controller or near it. The power supply is new in fact, I bought it with the rock64... and I have checked that the board haven't any jumper or anything that can be producing a shortcircuit. I have the board  away from all metal material or surface.

Hey, my Rock64 just came in the mail and I'm having the same issue. I tried with different OMV images and I can't get it to boot, only get all leds blinking. Have you found any solution to this? I'm using MicroSD.

I just hope it's not dead, it took a month to receive it  Sad

Thanks in advance

So there are three LEDs of importance... the green one near the power jack, and the white and red ones over near the reset button/raspberry pi header.

The green LED comes on when there is power applied to the board. Nothing more or less. so if it is going out, there is a major problem with the power supply, the board, or the connection to it. 

The white one is the 'power' led, and the red one is the 'standby' led. They don't do much on the linux images other than both come on when the rock64 boots, and both turn off when it is shutdown. On android images IIRC the pwr led would go out and the sleep one would remain on if you put android on standby. They are both toggleable in the linux filesystem via  /sys/devices/platform/leds/leds/ in recent versions. They don't "usually" blink though in operation, although I think disk-activity is a trigger that can be used if you want to use one like the hard drive indicator on laptops... and that wouldn't take effect until the os was starting up anyway.
