Flashing red powed LED

Unread post by omvistus » Sun Sep 15, 2019 3:56 pm

I shutdown my XU4 last night and went to power it up this morning and there's nothing but the power LED flashing red. The heat sink fan never spins up, and the board seems unresponsive. Changing SD cards doesn't help, neither does a different power supply. I can't seem to find any info regarding a flashing red LED on the XU4. It's a shame seeing as this board is just under 3 years old. I don't suppose it's salvageable in any way, would it?

Check that the boot switch is in the sd position (wiggle it a bit if necessary).
Also try to start it with everything but power disconnected.

If the red LED is not solid on, some portion of the PMIC, DRAM or CPU could be damaged by uncertain electrical shock.
Sorry about that.

Well, I guess I need to buy a replacement then.
