I recently bought a hi10x and started using it, I had it powered on and I tried to charge but accidentally plug the charger into the data port. Now it won’t boot up. I tried holding power key for couple 10 seconds and only a red led light shows up and then nothing. Any ideas?
Tried already, the bios doesn’t show up
Since you have just bought the device, I would recommend to contact the warranty service.
If you don’t have such a possibility, you need to check the battery voltage, check the resistance of the components near the type-c connector, these components most likely support maximum 6V and could burn out.
It won’t boot even with charger connected to the right USB-port?
It’s easy to make a mistake connecting to the wrong USB-C, it will be really weird that Chuwi does not take care of this kind of event.
turn laptop on to boot up, but keep pressing the delete button, till you get to the CMOS screen.
Thanks for the tip. I would never have thought of that. I’m forever plugging things in by feel.
Out of curiosity , I tried plugging the charger into the data-only port , just to see what happens . Result is , nothing happened . The tablet is still charging and working just like before .
Then I tested plugging the chuwi 12V charger to my android phones . And the result , nothing happened , the phones simply won’t charge with the chuwi charger . And both phones are still working .
I’ve also tested with 2 power banks , no damage resulted.
I’m sure the engineers have also tested these scenarios .
I am very suprised, and stand corrected. From what I have read of the USB-PD spec, I would have thought damage would result. Thank you.
