Assembled without issue. Just reflashed new firmware and tested the card. I don’t have a spare CM4 to test with, unfortunately. Batteries are tested and full charge. I just re-seated the CM4 adapter as a precaution but was fine.
Basically will not turn on at all: I see no signs of life, no lights, nothing.
Do you see any problems?
Edit: If I remove the 4G module entirely it will turn on. I’m guessing that module is a dud.
Stupid question, but are you sure about the battery polarity? Hard to tell from your photo.
Also make sure that the connector for the battery is properly clipped, on the DevTerm it needed a bit of force for me to get it in fully.
From your photo they seems to not be inserted…
Hi, thank you for the quick reply. I edited the post with the most recent. I got it to turn on if I disconnect the 4G module entirely. Guessing something is wrong with that board for me, and will get in touch about warranty.
Could it be that it contributes to power draw? Try with the power cable connected
I’ve tried with a power cable unfortunately. I have a multimeter if you could point me to the right spots to test though.
Unfortunately I haven´t received the uConsole yet to be able to provide test spots, better contact @AlexDuan in this case.
Same problem here but removing 4g module didn’t help…need a micro hdmi extension to test video output
Alex was quick to respond and is sending a replacement re the dud module.
if its not turning on, check battery and rpi adapter seating first. If you have a multimeter, check the battery voltage and polarity. Voltage should be around 4.2v. Also try usbc charging. Also check and reflash the SD card.
Hope it work!
That was the SD card. Formatting with camera and then back to balenaEtcher and that’s fine now.
Another thing the adapter has very thing tape on it make sure you remove it can be missed.
