Raspiboy not always turning on

Post by maurice » Wed 30 Aug 2017 09:28

I have a weird problem with the Kit. After assembly the powerbutton didn't work. So i plugged the charger in and removed it after a few seconds. Then the Raspiboy turned on.

After shutdown and a couple minutes it didn't turn on again. So i tried the charger trick again. Worked. Sometimes it powers on without pluggin in first. But rarely. The batteryindicator shows me three dots... so battery has charge.

Any ideas what could cause this problem? Like this the raspiboy is pretty much useless junk to me since i want to use it on the go.

I have similar issue. After a charge period I try to poweron by the switch and not work. I try a second or third time and works. Could you try more than one time? Maybe is the same issue.

I also have this problem. I thought it was the battery not being fully charged.

I have an issue like this as well, it needs two goes at turning it on.
Turn on -> Nothing.
Turn off.
Turn on again -> Turns on!

Got the same trouble, in most cases it will turn on wen i hit the battery check button after i turn the switch to on.
