Hi All,

I'm using Orange Pi for the first time. I'm having issues getting the PC to power on. Initially I was using a 5v 2A power adaptor and when powered on used to get the red light on the board, however I was unable to boot. After browsing on youtube, I found that the issue could be with the power adaptor not supplying enough power consistently.

I bought a new power adaptor(5v 3A), and now I'm unable to power on the Pi as I'm not getting the red power light, not event with the old adaptor, instead the LAN lights stay on. It is not booting either from the class 10 8 GB SD card which is formatted and loaded with rasbian OS. I'm not getting any display on the monitor which is connected to the Pi using HDMI cable.

Model: Orange Pi PC Pic attached.

Any help is appreciated.

Thank you for the links.

If I power on the Orange PI PC without any SD card, will it boot to a BIOS kind of screen?
Also without the SD Card I should atleast get the red light right?

Looks like there is no problem with the Power Adaptor.

I used Etcher to flash the SD card with Ubuntu Xenial, and now when I power on, get a solid green and blinking red light(blinks twice). Does that mean the SD card is faulty?

Read the documentation and wait a few minutes.

Ok got it working, the SD card was perfect as it passed the H2testw test.

The new Power Supply I purchased helped in providing constant 5v Power.
The final issue was that the armbian OS didn't have the HDMI drivers required to display content on the screen.
Able to get display with vga.

Thanks for the help @igorpec.

HDMI is 100% working on all Armbian images. If there is no screen, your cables or monitor is failed.

Well, I guess then the issue was with the TV not compatible with OrangePi board, I was able to get display on the same old TV with vga, so I assumed that the issue was with the HDMI drivers.

Now the Pi is working with the old power supply as well. So I guess the issues was with the old TV.
