Beagleboard black turn on issue


I am using a BBB [Debian based]. For the project use, this has been changed to Angstrom. I have found a couple of issues with the BBB at random times like say once in 100 times…or so where it does not boot up.

The issues are as below where,

two times the BB LED Power was on but the USR LED’s did not turn on. Upon power cycle the BBB worked fine.

· Three times the BBB did not connected to computer, power LED was on, USR LED’s were blinking. After power cycle the unit. I was Using UBUNTU all times. On being powered up by the adapter this issue was not spotted.

These sound like classic power issues with the BBB.
Power it from something with good clean sufficient power available.
