Odroid keeps rebooting

Unread post by Mohan » Mon Jan 14, 2019 11:58 am

I have an odroid xu4 with 128gb Linux emmc module. When I power the odroid it seems to boot up (solid blue light), but as soon as it's done it shuts down and boots up again. I can't see anything in the display. I have tried reflashing the emmc module as well as try booting it from a SD card, but everything went in vain. Can you please tell me how to fix this?

Do you use our latest Ubuntu 18.04 LTS image?

Which power supply do you use?
Output voltage must be very stable at 4.8V at least.

Yes I am using Ubuntu 18.04 image. I bought a third party 5V 4A power supply. The output voltage is stable at 5V. To give a clearer picture of the problem I have attached a youtube link. What's happening in that video is exactly what's happening to me.

I changed the power supply. It's booting up now. I am able to get a display. However I am getting a error = remount-ro error. It's going past that stage showing the login screen, but ends up rebooting sometimes. How should I fix this?

Due to the unstable power supply, many time of sudden power off events could corrupt the root file system in the eMMC.
Flash the OS image with Etcher again.
