[SOLVED] ODROID C2 Not starting up

Unread post by Mglyer » Sat Apr 15, 2017 3:33 am

Hello,

I purchased an odroid C2 and cannot get it to boot.

I connect power via mini-usb
I have used 2 different microSD cards:
Transcend 8GB class 10
SanDisk Extreme 32GB HC1
Both times I used an insignia card reader: NS-CR2021

I wrote both the
ubuntu-16.04-mate-odroid-x2-20160920.img and
ubuntu-16.04-minimal-odroid-c1-20160803.img

I did this multiple times and I get no blue light, and no signal from HDMI, but I get a solid red light everytime.

When you flash the OS image, use "Etcher" for read-back validation.

Dear odroid, thanks for reply!

yes, previously I was using Win32Diskimager - few versions. Yesterday tried to use Etcher. Strange, but image I pointed to, Etcher do not accept as image itself (yes, I extracted image from archive - tries with winrar as well as with 7-Zip - result was the same). After tried to write with Etcher image http://de.eu.odroid.in/ubuntu_16.04lts/ ... 301.img.xz you pointed to. Etcher accepted this image as valid, wrote it to SD card, as well also to eMMC card. Tried to boot from one and another source. Booting from eMMC I saw some screen flickering, also messages from boot-log. Later - nothing, just blank black screen and red led always on. Blue led after first boot from eMMC remain always on, after next boots - off.

Sorry, I'm completely newbie with odroid as well as with all linux-based units, so - do not beat be too much :D

Okay. Flashing OS image seems to be fine.
I think your power supply has no stable output.
It must be very stable at 5V with 2Amp load.
Which power supply do you use?

What is special to this image, that it will solve the there-is-only-a-red-light issue?
I have the same problem...
Does it matter if you use windiskimage 1.1 or etcher?
