No display after booting HiKey970


#1

Hi,

I flashed Leubuntu as per the instructions given in : https://www.96boards.org/documentation/consumer/hikey/hikey970/installation/linux-fastboot.md.html

and in particular those given in the “lebuntu-rfs_flashing_guide.txt” file. However, after connecting it with mouse, keyboard and Monitor via a HDMI cable, on powering up nothing appears on the monitor.

Can you please help me with this?

Thanks
Best regards

Have you installed lxde?

What is lxde? I have a separate monitor for HiKey970. Can you please tell me what is lxde and how to install it?

Thanks

Maybe you can pre-plug the cable before power-up your board?

Hi,

Thanks for your suggestion. I tried many times like that. I first attached the HDMI cable and then powered it up. But it still doesn’t work. I tried with another monitor as well, still no response. I will change my HDMI cable this time to see if the cable is faulty.

Any other suggestion would help. Please

Thanks
Best wishes

have you tried connecting network and ssh?

Hi,

I cannot use ssh without knowing the ip address.
However, it started working when I used a modern monitor.

Thanks for all your help
