Hello!
I've problems with my new Orange Pi:
It wont start!
I've tested different power supplies (1A to 2.5A), SD Cards (SanDisk Class 10), OS images and cables, but the screen left blank.
The red LED turns on and sometimes the green one turns also on but not all the time.
When i press the power button to turn the Orange Pi off, sometimes the red LED goes darker and flicker, but it don't go off.
Please help me.

You use Lubuntu image . Hdmi and VGA is ok. Android and bananian  use hdmi is ok. But you need use 1.5A + DC.

i will try dd, but i think this is not the reason for the problems.
The behavior of the red LED is also very strange:
Sometimes the light is very dark and flicker unevenly!
is this normal?

now, my orange starts (he didn't like my Dell monitor)
I can run it with my Samsung TV and HDMI,
but lubuntu and bananian randomly freeze:
Sometimes at the main startup sequence and sometimes
at the login! the orange pi still won't start with android.

So was it a problem with incompatible monitors?
I'm having a similar behaviour, red and green leds turn on for 3-4 secs then shut off.
No signal to monitor via HDMI or Composite.

Is there any way to get logs from such a short period of time, I guess the OS isn't even booting in those seconds?
