Is there a reset button for the CBC v2?

There's the power switch, but that's it.

What do you need to reset?

You can reboot the Chumby using the instructions in the GCER 2009 paper by myself, Matt Thompson, and Braden McDorman (it's one C or bash command). That said, there aren't many cases where doing so is useful; the power switch works fine.

We need it because our CBC may or may not be blown out or short-circuited or something, so we're thinking that trying to reboot it would tell us whether it's electronic or mechanical problem. What's going on is that the screen is always dark, and the "on" light is constantly shining. None of this changes when we toggle the regular power switch.

A KIPR engineer would need to say this for sure, but I believe the power switch completely turns off both the Chumby and CBOB. If it is a software problem, it is almost definitely the CBOB. Have you tried to access the CBOB bootloader to reflash its firmware? This sounds like a hardware issue to me though. If it's under warranty, KIPR will be able to fix it free; otherwise they'll charge you a fee but they can probably still fix it. Fixing a CBOB by yourself is probably not easy.

You are able to computer the particular Chumby while using guidance inside the GCER 09 papers by myself, Matt Thompson, and Braden McDorman (it's a single H or bash command). In spite of this, generally there are not quite a few conditions wherever doing this is useful; the ability switch operates okay.
