Open Hour Chameleon seems to have died
Today I discovered that my Open Hour Chameleon seems to have died on me, almost exactly 1 year after I bought it.
I used it yesterday without any issues, but when I turned it on this morning the white LED on the front is switched on but nothing is displayed on my TV (the TV says that there is no input signal).

I also see that the keyboard/mouse controller that I charge through one of the USB ports is no longer being charged.

I did notice that yesterday, when I switched the OHC off using the physical on/off switch on the back, that the charge indication LED on the controller started flashing red where it normally will start blinking green (to indicate that it lost connection with the transmitter).

I've tested the controller on another Android device that I own (a Remix Mini) and it is still functioning perfectly.

Has anybody else run this issue and have a solution?

Tried it with a different but compatible power supply from an USB hub but the OHC still doesn't boot. White LED turns on, but the controller doesn't get any charge through the USB port.

I'm trying to create a new boot card, just to see if that changes anything, but the image writing tool in your how to notes doesn't seem to work on windows 10.

Tried a different SD card with firmware .27 but the OHC still doesn't boot-up.

I think it is a hardware failure on the PCB.

My replacement NVidia Shield has arrived in the mean time so I'm back in business regarding couch watching.
