So I got my Orange Pi One a couple of days ago and immediately downloaded Armbian for it , I followed all the instructions given, I flashed the image on the SD card (8 gb class 4, I didn't have anything better) and powered it up with a mobile charger of 5V/1A. Sadly, nothing is happening , no LED's are lighting up(neither the ethernet ones nor the onboard one), the CPU feels cold on touch and I can't understand why. Have I messed something up  ? Is it because I am using a class 4 SD or perhaps because I am not giving it enough current for it to work. Or did it come dead out of the box ? Did anyone have experience like this, anything would help since I don't have any experience with Orange/Raspberry ... Pi's

Nevermind, I got it to work, I tried to start it from the 2nd and 6th GPIO and it worked, all LEDs are up and the board one is green I inspected the 1.7mm barrel plug and the contacts seem to be shortwired, I'm not sure, but that must have caused the problems
