Do you have a Quad or a single?

Try to do the following:
1.power off all the boards
2.remove the power connector
3.remove the sd card ( location: the SD card is already included in your miner, you'll find it in that small board ( where the ethernet cable enters ) beneath the main big red board )
3.1 if you have a Quad try removing all the cables that connect the boards and insert them back in.you should have also a spare cable of this type, try and replace the cables from the board that blinks blue
4.insert the sd card back
5.insert the power cable and power it on.

If the above does not work try and connect another power supply.In my case a 12 V 4 A power supply from an external HDD did a good job.
Let me know how it works out as I have a few more thoughts on what you could do.
All this didnt work... tried it all....

The skype real ID of the sales person was baikalminer with the blue bikal logo with live:bikalteam skype name. that's whom i got mine from... read previous posting from people who has successfully purchased Baikal miners. and see the correct info.
STAY AWAY, I assume you are one of those scammers.

Yes i am, cant figure out a way to fix this issue .
I have a couple of the 'mini' miners and ran into the same problem you did. The fix for me was to replace the MicroSD chip in the OrangePi. To do this I had to download the OrangePi flash utility from Baikal's website, along with the flash image itself. "OrangePI-PC_8G_V2.2_1021.img" was a bit under 8 GB in size, just FYI.

I had to invest in a two-pack of SanDisk 8GB SDHC cards (they were cheap, so why not get two?) and after flashing the card with my laptop, I powered down the miner and replaced their card with mine. It's a bit tricky, so I used tweezers to make sure the chip seated properly. After powering everything back up, the miner worked fine, although I did have to reconfigure all of the pool information.

The newest orange pi version is V3.3 now.

Same issue happened with my mini miner two months ago. Blue LED was not becoming solid. I discussed with Baikalminer on Skype and reinstall image in microSD card after formatting it. And problem get solved. As per my knowledge this problem happens in old Baikal miners because of probably they used low grade SD cards in old designs. In cubes no such report found yet. Heating may also be the reason for SD card corruption in old designs. Newer designs are generating less heat.

What would be a fair price for a used one of these? With all the new miners coming out I don't want to overpay but I'm finally seeing these for sale on Ebay again and I've been wanting to get my hands on one just wondering if it's too late and I should go for one of the newer ones coming out?

Be extra careful on buying from second hand dealers. Especially if they're outside from the crypto community and / or don't accept escrow. There have been tons of users here in the forums who have been scammed by sellers in eBay, AliBaba, AliExpress, even Amazon users.

That being said, I think paying 50-75% the price of a new one is fair. But the market will figure that out for itself. Just take the price of what people are selling used ones for as a reference and work with that.

Have you tried re-imaging your SD card? See PDF below. It's for the Mini, but all baikal have similar processes.

Some screenshots from your error would be beneficial, as well.

All good now I was only at panic haha... The main problem is Nicehash looks like the Baikal Miner is not responsive with their pool. They should fix it.

Currently mining at Suprnova.cc
