Beagleboard-xM not booting

Hi,
     I am having Beagleboard-xM revB. It is not booting since this
afternoon. Earlier I was able to boot linux.
I checked the test point voltages given on Page 148 of Beagle_SRM_A3
manual. All the voltages are fine but VDD_MMC1 . It shows 0V.
I don't see any messages on Serial Port. It is completely blank.
Also I was working with CCS4 and was debugging simple ARM application
yesterday. Today I am not able to connect to the ARM using XDS100v2.
The VDD1 and VDD2 voltages are fine.
Any idea what could have happened ?

What happens if you use the original SD card that shipped with the board?

Hi Gerald,
               I tried the images that were shipped with it the SD
card. No luck.

There is a chance that you have damaged the SD connector and most likely bent a pin. You probably need to request an RMA.

Hi Gerald,
               Is there anything we need to do RMA ? Or just ship the
Board and they will repair it ...

You need to request an RMA. Follow the procedures here:

http://beagleboard.org/support/rma

DO NOT jsut ship it back. It will never arrive.

ok.. thanks !

Hi,
   I have experienced that in some cases formating card with a
different geometry makes it work, i.e. reducing the value of Heads and
Sectors eg. with Heads=128 ,Sectors=32 (yes you read it right) and
Cylinders according to capacity of card.

Please let me know if it works in your case.

Cheers,
Yadi

Hi,
    I have a hardware problem on the board. The power to the MMC card
itself is OFF. It shows 0V. I have a working Beagleboard-xM and I
verified few voltages. Looks like the TPS65950 has gone bad as D12 LED
which is PMU_STAT is not glowing. So I dont think formatting the SD
card differently will help.
Thanks anyways.
