BPI M3 boot loop/ not booting


#1

Just got my banana pi and so far have not been able to successfully boot any OS. I am currently using a 32gb class 10 sd card and a 5v 2.1a adaptor with the micro usb. When i power it up, all three LED’s light up and i am brought to the white screen with the banana pi logo. Then after around 5 seconds the blue and green LEDs turn off leaving only the red, and then it loops. Every now and then it doesnt even loop, it just turns on then off. I guess its a power issue? Maybe im not using working OS’s or not configuring them properly?

I dont have a DC tunnel adaptor for it cause they are like $30 bucks from jaycar and its for a major project which i have a tight time schedule for so shipping a cheap one from china isnt really an option. Any ideas?
