Altera DE2 Board Not Powering Up Properly

I have 2 DE2 board which does not display the welcome message after it powers up. Looks like it is failing on the Power On Test. Anyone ran into this problem and found a way to "hard" reset these boards? 

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi Joelim 

Does the "run-prog" switch, is in "run" position ?? 

Try it.

The factory configuration may have been overwritten and should be restored from the backup file.

Thanks! 

Is there any documentation on how to restore the backup file?

Hi Joelim. 

In the DE2_UserManual.pdf, chapter 5.1 (5.1 DE2 Factory Configuration) is the decription of how to download the DE2_Default demo. 

It is simply programming in the DE2_Demonstrations/DE2_Default the .sof file. 

 

Regards 

Alberto.
