[SOLVED] XU4 Not working

Unread post by Gagneur » Thu Jan 02, 2020 7:19 pm

Hello,
I am facing issues with my odroid XU4. It doesn't boot up. I have tried several different operating systems including OMV, diet pi, ubuntu mate and minimal. It just doesn't boot up. I connected a moniter with xu4 but it didn't connect. I am attaching a link for a video in which you can see that the blue light blinks and then is solid for ten seconds and then it blinks again along with fan stopping and then again the whole cycle happens again.
Please help.

You need a very stable 5V/4A PSU to avoid the self reset cycles.
Which PSU do you use?

The PSU is okay but you have to check the DC wire thickness carefully.
This thread must be helpful.

Thanks so much for the solution. Indeed it was the dc cable that was causing the problem. Thanks once again.
