I was trying to work behind a new TV yesterday. In the process, the UPS ended up falling off the shelf, which pulled the TV off too. I actually didn't think that the NUC was damaged, but I can't get it to start anymore. It alternates between blue and orange lights, but never shows anything on the screen. Any thoughts if there is any hope? Thanks in advance.
I thought about doing the CMOS reset. If I could get it to at least show on the screen, I would, but with my very limited vision (tunnel vision), I'd prefer not to try messing with the board.
Thank you very much for that and replying. I will get your points one-by-one:
3) It was working before. I currently had LibreElec installed on it, though I have had Windows on it several times before.
4) The front light on the power and around the front ports.
5) I left it unplugged last night. Will try it again today.
Thanks again. :)
As for the short video clip, I could give it a shot, but there's really nothing to show since I can't get anything on the screen. All that is shown are the alternating LED colors noted.
OK, I saw this clip and in fact it doesn't help me. I'm trying to find some solution that you will be able to try with your vision limitation. I can see that that the NUC is working. From your first post I understood that it fell down and now is not starting (i.e. you don't see any video output, including the Intel NUC logo)?
Just wanted to say thanks again for the push to get in there. I ended up breaking one of the parts that holds one of the DIMMs in place during all this. So, I am one DIMM down, but other than that, I am back in business now. I went through several other ideas, but it seems to have been an issue either with one of the RAM sticks or perhaps it slipped placement a tiny bit.
I'm happy that my advice helped you to fix your NUC. I'm very sorry that you break the part holding the SO DIMM. I wasn't aware that you don't know how the SO DIMM is hold in place. I should send you a link to video showing how to do this. Hope that some body will help you to replace the broken part.
Ironically, I actually did know how to do the release...it just didn't go well one of the times (I inserted and took out a number of times during the process). Just glad both aren't broken. I won't be getting it fixed, I imagine. I will ride it out with one DIMM until I get a newer model down the road. :)
