    A blinking power LED is usually a sign of insufficent power. It should be on all the time with power connected.

    You need a more powerful DC supply (6-15V supported, but give it at least 1A... 2A if you have stuff connected).

    Great.

    They do make it clear to use a 12V 2A DC supply but perhaps it needs to be more clear as you are probably the 5th person to run into this issue in the last week.

    Perhaps you can change the thread title to have '[SOLVED]' at the start?

    Glad to know that your UDOO is now working, could you please share more about your experience? Specs of the power adapter you used initially and specs of the one that worked (Voltage and Amps).

    Thanks

    For my UDOO quad I am using a 12V 2A supply as was recommended. These tend to be quite common as they also seem to be commonly used for external 3.5" disk drives.

    Hi,
    I was using the 12V 2A adapter, but there was issue with adapter which is created the problem. Adapter changes helped on it.
