My Vim1 wont give a HDMI signal, it will turn on (white led) but no signal output.
Things i’ve tested:
3 different psu’s with 2.5A or more
Tv (samsung q80) and Monitor (lenovo L24) and both give no signal.
Also tested 2nd hdmi cable on lenovo. HDMI cable connected to laptop works with both monitors/tv.
Then i’ve downloaded the USB Upgrade tool and tried to flash Android to Emmc again.
With tripple press of function button and holding power button and press reset, both works and USB Upgrade tool recorgnizes the Vim.
First VIM1_Pie_V200317 , no signal
Then VIM1_Pie_V190823, no signal
Then VIM_Marshmallow_170929, no signal
Flashed VIM1_Pie_V200317 again but no signal.
All flashes succeeds and tried with ‘normal erase’ and ‘full erase’ and reset after flash.
But all no succes.
Also downloaded Khadas rescue and flashed with Rufus on sd.
Insert SD in Vim1 and power on, after 30sec tripple press the function button blue led blinks but no rescue / no signal.
Hey! It is very similar to the HDMI problem, only you need to understand the HDMI output or the HDMI cable, I suggest starting with a simple one, change the HDMI cable and check with other TVs, it may be a success.
Thanks for your quick reply.
I’ve also tested with 2nd hdmi cable (edited first post) the hdmi cable works when connected to laptop (while i was flashing the Vim) to check monitor and hdmi, and both works.
Yes i will this afternoon (my afternoon, netherlands)
But chargers both charge my galaxy S10+ easy and switch to PD fastcharge so this they are working good. The other (dedicated usb C) psu i’m using for my raspberry pi 4 and this boots fine so this also delivers enough current.
Also the VIM will flash with the usb 3.0 from my laptop so it seems this also delivers enough power. After flash i unplug and replug it in the same usb port for power.
I understand you very well, but here you need accuracy in the characteristics! This is very important! I once, like you, faced this, that’s why I’m telling you about it now!
I’m talking specifically about a voltage of 5 volts, a multi-voltage power supply will not work for example.
Thanks, i will make photo this afternoon.
The larger chargers are indeed multivoltage, but the dedicated psu (from my raspberry pi 4) is only 5v. But will make photo to be accurate.
Also my laptop USB A port is 5v and no multi voltage.
But i understand you need clear information to find the solution.
Did some more testing.
After plugging in to power and wait 1 min (guessed android boot time) pressing power will disconnect hdmi signal (tv jump to analog signal) and pressing power again will jump to hmdi. But after 5 sec Black screen it gives message no signal (on samsung q80 tv) .
So it looks like board does something but hdmi doesnt have output. The samsung tv supports all hdmi standards from 720p to 4k so all display modes from khadas should work.
