    Received my Enhanced LP. Plugged in HDMI, Windows 10 USB media, wi-fi, and power cable. Red & Blue LEDs came on, shut off. Press power, Red LED comes on permanently.

    And that's it. No post to screen, no changes elsewhere. Removing USB media makes no difference.

    Any next steps to try to attempt to see a boot screen of some sorts?


    Thanks!

    Hello sir. I just had the same experience as you. Basically it won't POST or Power On Self Test. There is a Chinese Holiday going on (I dunno what it's called) and there most likely won't be a reply from LattePanda Support until Monday when they are expected to be back at work.

    Hi guys, I got the normal one not enchanted one, but, first of all, what hardware you using? you didn't mentioned your PSU, then try to get one (if don't got already one) that got 3Amp+, try to unplug all and leave ONLY HDMI and PSU cable, then try to boot it up few times (sometimes can just not being recognised connection to TV).

    I'm using a powered USB hub that's rated at 2.6A, or my Asus Transformer Prime power outlet rated at 2.5A.

    Hi there,
    Can you clarify some things?:

    "Windows 10 USB media" - what is the purpose for this?
    "Wifi" - are you using a dongle or do you mean the antenna?

    As for the red light issue, does it do this every time? if the issue occurs, are you able to power it off, leave it for 10 mins and try again with the same results?

    Are you able to try powering the board through the CN2 headers instead of the microusb?

    As a first step I would try reflashing the bios using USB (is that what you mean with Windows 10 USB media?)
    details can be found at http://www.lattepanda.com/docs/

    Please post results
    Enjoy Tinkering with LattePanda ! :lol:

    Absolutely,

    The Windows 10 USB Media is to install Windows 10 onto the computer.

    Wifi is the antenna included with the computer.

    Red light issue is persistent over time.

    I have not tried using the headers. I can! Have plenty of 5V regulated power supplies.

    I see no instructions on the document list for how to flash the bios. I followed the following forum posting with no results:

    https://github.com/LattePandaTeam/Latte ... aster/Bios


    I just received the dedicated screen. I will try this with the header power supply and see if there are any results to be found there.

    Thank you!
