Problem with launch Pinebook Pro
#1
Hello there,

Finally came my Pinebook Pro Smile, I read this post https://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?tid=4632  and charged him. But after I pushed power button 5-10sec nothing is happen. I found that during charging, red diode shone something around 3 min and then turn off until I plug out charging cable and again plug in. I repeat this procedure couple days and red diode shone a little bit longer but still the notebook doesn't work.

Can you help me please?

Thanks

From my experience with the 2 models of Pinebook, the red light usually goes off when the battery is charged.

Have you tried writing an IMG to SD and booting that?

There have been reports of the eMMC module coming loose in shipping. My money is on that.
Also, moved this thread to Pinebook Pro section.
You can find me on IRC, Discord and Twitter

Thank you very much, that was it. Last question: How to switch language? reinstallation required?, how change user name? and how to change the keyboard on the login screen - there is still UK English, is confusing.

Again thank you for your time

No because notebook didn't start. It was a problem with eMMC.

Glad you figured it out. For future reference, if your emmc acts up, you can still boot from another OS using an SD.
