BBB does not power on

Hi, I am using Beaglebone black. It does not boot if I power it up using the miniUSB or adapter. The power led just flashes for a moment and then it goes off. If I press the power button it is just the same: a short flash of the LED, then silence. This thing happened while a GPIO pin was connected to base of transistor via 10k resistor, I was testing the GPIO pins.

Searching on BBB forums, I decipher, it means that an excess current flow was detected and the PMIC has shut down. Is there any way to turn it on?

There is not an easy or even a hard way to override the current detection in the PMICā€¦ Most likely the processor has been popped. Your best bet is an RMA.
