USB supply not working


I’ve just received a BBB. I followed “Get Started” instructions by plugging USB cable into PC. However, nothing happened. BBB was not powered-up. No LED, no storage drive mounted.
I downloaded Angstrom image ( and followed the instructions ( to BOOT and flash the image to eMMC. But it is still dead.
Any idea?

Try following the instructions here


I solved the problem. I was the cable that came defective. I changed the cable and BBB powered-on. Thanks Gerald for paying attention.

My pleasure.
