Pinebook Pro won't turn on
#11
Received my PBP today and I have the same problem to boot up. I removed the back panel and pressed the reset button but still not working. Does anyone have a solution?

Some people have had success with reseating the emmc card, then pressing reset.  Unfortunately, I am not among them.

I flipped the eMMC switch (24 on https://wiki.pine64.org/index.php/Pinebook_Pro_Main_Page#Accessing_the_Internals_-_Disassembly_and_Reassembly)
and my computer now boots.

Which direction is the switch supposed to be ?

EDIT: Success! I flipped the emmc switch to up (towards the hinge) pressed reset, and then power, the system powered on finally!

@TAAPAye & @bebop_man, thank you for the information.

I've added a section to the Wiki for trouble shooting our PBPs. Then added that specific issue;

Wiki - Pinebook Pro - New from the factory - won't boot or power on

As usual, feel free to correct, improve or comment, (good or politely bad).

I am having a similar problem except I received my PBP yesterday and it wouldn't power up and I set it down walked away about 10 minutes later my wife said it turned on. I played with it all night, rebooted it several times, then finally powered off and went to bed. now today it won't turn on at all. followed all previous instructions(the emmc switch was set correctly, and emmc very secure) I hope it didn't expire in the middle of the night I was so happy with everything.

The instructions from TAAPAye and bebop_man worked for my PBP finally. Thanks.
