I've had my Raspiboy for a while now but was only able to assemble it and so on in the past week. I put some roms on it, and have been really enjoying it. During a bout of GB Tetris today it died, which I have believed was due to the battery being discharged as I hadn't charged it for a while. I plugged it into what I had been using to charge it, a Samsung phone charger, but the Raspiboy no longer appears to be taking charge (it was connected for a couple of hours on this occasion with the power switch in the off position). When connecting the charger, the charging lights light in sequence from left to right and then the left most light comes on and flashes. I have a video of this (the light sequence starts 6 seconds in and the Raspiboy was on its side for the filiming) of this behaviour at https://www.dropbox.com/s/guvcble6cwir8 ... 6.mp4?dl=0. I have no idea if this is correct or not or if I should be waiting longer for it to charge.
Its been apart multiple times before and after this issue, but I was very careful around original installation of speaker vs. battery connector. I was using it in anger when it died, which as I originally stated I assumed was due to lack of power. It may now may be a PCB failure of some sort given the Pi Zero I've removed and tested in isolation and works fine outside of the Raspiboy. Thanks for the input!
