Dragon Board doesn't start


I recently bought a DragonBoard. I tried to start it up just a few days ago, using an appropriate power source, but the board doesn’t seem to do anything: no lights switch on at all.

I tried to wait, press the power button, hold the power button, buy another adapter, but nothing.

What should I do?

Best Regards,



Try to use multi pin laptop charger. right now i am using Multi ping laptop charger.

Check the below url for more details:-



Thanks, but that’s what I’m already using. I tried 2 different ones with no success.



Hello, try to use a voltmeter and see if you power on these 2 pins 37 and 39. you should get around 4.95V

Alse the pin selectors on the back must be 0-0-0-0



Hi Skybax,
thanks. Unfortunately I get 0.0 V .

P.S. I tested the voltmeter and it works.


Even if I measure on the pins just after the power jack, I still find 0V (of course if I try on the power source I get 9V if it’s set to 9V)


With it plugged in to a power source ~12V @ 2A, bring up terminal on Debian. (I use ~14v)

dmesg -w

Plug in USB OTG port to the host / computer.

Any response in dmesg?

Try again with the - & or + button held down.

Sounds like a dead board. All the boot switches set to 0?



Do one last test add and power the board on the 36 and 38 pins and see if that helps.


Hi @Skybax,
I get 0.00V there too.


Hi All,

I am porting marshmallow on DB410c board.

Build the image:

repo init -u https://android.googlesource.com/platform/manifest -b android-6.0.1_r16

git clone https://github.com/96boards/android_manifest -b android-6.0-db410c local_manifests
cd -
repo sync -j8
source build/envsetup.sh
lunch db410c-userdebug
make droidcore -j8
cd out/target/product/db410c

Build is completed. i flashed the images to the board.

android text is displayed on the screen, screen got strucked.

Kernel is booting fine.(version is 4.4)

but system image has the issues.

I am always getting

The above logs are continuing in the loops


Hi @ramesh,
I think this doesn’t relate at all with my post.

My board doesn’t start at all, as in, not even the LEDs turn on.



Unfortunately it seems that you have a glorified paper weight
