Odroid N2 unable to boot. SD Card Slot not working.

Unread post by mani83 » Thu Feb 06, 2020 4:49 pm

Hi all.
I recently purchased Odroid N2 Coreelec edition 4gb model from India. I have purchased it from fabtolab.com.

The board boots up properly in SPI boot mode, with BLUE light blinking as it should.
When the boot select switch is moved to mmc mode, (with sd card inserted) there is no blue light blinking. No display. The device does not boot up. Only the red power led is on.

I have tried 3 different working memory cards but the device does not boot up. The blue light does not blink in sdcard/mmc boot mode.
I am enclosing some pics for your reference.Kindly revert as soon as possible.

Thanks and kind regards

Manish S

Which OS image did you flash?
Let us know the file name.

Did you use Etcher for flashing the OS image?

I used the default memory card that comes with the coreelec edition bundle. Also, i used 2 more memory cards with the following filenames (Coreelec)
CoreELEC-Amlogic-ng.arm-9.2.0-Odroid_N2.img & CoreELEC-Amlogic-ng.arm-9.2.1-Odroid_N2.img.
Downloaded from the official coreelec site.
Yes, i used Etcher.

Previously I've been using Odroid N2 for some time now. Purchased from the same vendor Fabtolab.com. This is my second purchase.
This seems to be hardware failure. Thanks

I am having same issues with my N2 and using the Ubuntu. These pictures are nice. Mine looks the same - no obvious damage or issues with the SD card slot.

Posted more details in another post. Emailed ODROID - waiting for response.

I noticed on the HardKernel website that now the N2 show as out-of-stock. I can get it to work sometimes so not completely out-of-service.

I wasn't trying to hijack the post. Just commenting on the pictures and mentioning I'm having the same issues. I added that I've already emailed so you didn't tell me to do the same.
