    Beaglebone functioning


      My beaglebone black is not responding after connecting to a power a source. User led's are numb and they dont respond after a long time too.I could not understand the problem.

          Perhaps it is not booting (this can happen if some board is plugged on top). Have you tried powering it up without any cape plugged on?

          It could also be a faulty or corrupted micro SD card, if you're booting off that. Or corrupted on-board Flash. To fix that, you may need a replacement microSD card and reinstall.

          Also, it's highly recommended to connect to the serial pins (e.g. use a 3.3V UART-USB adaptor) to see how far in the boot process it has got.

          To do that, see the section "Using a serial cable" here: Some quick-start things to do for developing on the BBB

            Did it work before, and now it stopped working?  Or is this the first time you used it?


            The user LEDs are the 4 above the mini-USB port.  Does the "PWR"  LED light up, the one right next to the 5 volt barrel connector?
