Hold the power button until the blue LED goes off. Then, press and hold it for 3 seconds and see if you get to the recovery menu.
Hope this helps,
Maurillo, Thank you very much for joining the Intel® Compute Stick communities.
In order to try to fix this problem, what we can try is a BIOS recovery, since the F8 options or pressing and hold the power key are not working:
This is the .BIO file needed, 0035:
Besides that, not sure if you tried another HDMI cable already?
Please let me know the results of trying the BIOS recovery.
Any further questions, please let me know.
When the pc is connected to the electric plug, blue light stays on EVER! Holding power button lot of seconds don't give any effects, the blue light don't go down...
I tried to plug the stick directly to hdmi port, without cable: no effects showed! So, in this way is impossible to update the bios.... My display is ever black.
Which kind of hardware malfunction can produce that signs? Defective power button, burned graphic cars, broken fan? In order of this, the fan don't run. I tried to disconnect it too, without any results... obviusly! In case of hardware failure, can i recovery datas from sdd anyway? Excuse me for my "englanian"...
Thanks for your support!
Hhmmm, holding the power button for 4 full seconds should result in a full power off. This is a hardware feature; it is not maskable; there must be some kind of hardware failure. If you are still under warranty, I would contact Intel to arrange a replacement.
Check your warranty here: Determine if Your Product Is Still Under Warranty.
If you are still covered, contact Intel regarding RMA using this contact information (by geography):
Hope this helps,
Oops, I didn't answer the last question. If you cannot boot the ICS, you will not be able to retrieve any files off the eMMC. If your files are in the add-in flash card, you can just move the card to another PC and retrieve everything.
Thank you.... Sob
Eureka, I solved the problem!
Resigned to defeat, I tried to disassembling the compute Stick, sure to do irreparable damages like desoldering some chip...
Instead I found the solution by disconnecting the buffer battery. After I powered up the pc which turned off.
Subsequently the battery reconnection I re-energized the compute stick that started normally!
I hope to be useful to someone.
