Short Story , dead TV box...no Leds,Lights,output...nothing...but serial console works

Any idea of what is wrong

Hi! 

 

The simple fact that it still shows serial output and running the bootloader mean that the box isn't totally dead.  Something is corrupted inside the eMMC installed system. Did you already try to boot it via SD Card? 

The Amlogic CPUs try the SD card before the eMMC storage (at least the ones I have). 

 

I don't know anyone who's supporting S905x3, but maybe you can find a booting image for it in this forum. Burn it to a SD Card and see if your box responds.

 

Hope it helps somehow

Good luck!

Thanks for reply man... tried SD but no luck...is dead in the water.
I read somewhere that the last resort is to do flashing via UART but i am not sure of the procedure

That's weird. What happened before that? Did you try to update the bootloader or something like that?
The bootloader should first look for a SD Card bootable system.

 

So, flashing it through UART is not possible, although you still can flash an Armbian image via USB using aml-flash-tools
Also, burning the stock android image would also do the trick. with the stock ROM working, it'll begin to boot from SD again

 

For Android, use this tool:

I think is dead....tried yesterday the UART connection and while i got again the boot output...i couldn't interrupt it...so..

After some research, i realized the same error happened when users tried to update their ROM from a LPDDR3 memory to a DDR3 Box, or vice versa
Uploading software on Amlogic CPUs is like a surgery. I think that's why the Meson support is kinda poor compared to Rockchip CPUs. 

Well... There's no unbrickable device. Maybe you should try the short pin method and skip the boot from e-MMC, or even more radical: Remove the e-MMC chip

 

I was able to save a fully bricked (surprisingly) rockchip box using this method. It's always my last resource

If you need any tips about the electronics, feel free to ask!

Well when I think I have tried everything something new always pops up.
Recently I tried short circuit the EMMC to force its detection via Amlogic USB burn tool but no luck....but recently I read that you could utilize a rather more radical method of using the grounding from USB port and with the free end try just about any available pin... first chance I get I will give it a go.
