I normally hate posting these "it don't work. halp!" messages, but i seriously have no idea why my Banana Pro isn't working. I bought it yesterday, downloaded the image of the latest release of Bananian, "extracted" it to a 24 gb micro sd card via win32 imager and tried to boot the system.|
After plugging the power cable in (in the "dc in" usb slot), only the red led lights up, i can't get an image of the screen via hdmi, the banana pro, which is plugged into my home network via ethernet cable, doesn't show up on my router. Then i tried out the Lubuntu und Raspbian versions directly from the lemaker download section, both they don't seem to work either, but it's a little different this time: The red and the green led light up if the pro is plugged in, (neither flash, or something like that) but the pi doesn't boot regardless, no image on the monitor, it isn't found in my home network.
I didn't have any problems like that with the regular Banana Pi and i don't think i am doing anything differently. I even tried writing the image to the sd card in two ways, via the sd card slot of my laptop and via an usb connector, to no effect. I really want to get this working, any ideas are welcome. If you need any additional information, please tell me and i'll try to provide it.
