Gemini not booting
« on: January 04, 2020, 04:38:15 pm »
I have a Gemini running Linux. I haven't used it in a few weeks, and it's been plugged in the whole time (right side). Now, it does not turn on. I tried the power/ESC switch, power/ESC + the side button for 15 seconds. Nothing seems to help. Any ideas on how to revive my machine?

AFAIK the right USB port can't be used for charging, only the left one can. So it's possible that the battery is simply fully discharged.

Yes, that was the problem. I didn't realize that only the left port can be used for charging, and the box is now fully charged and working again.
