I tried "Win32 Disk-Imager". I am going to yet try another MicroSD card. This time I am getting a "SanDisk Extreme Pro MicroSDXC UHS-I U3 A2 V30 64GB"

Had the same problem.
Just set the jumper to eMMC Recovery on the board and boot from sdCard.
Worked for me.

Hi,
this can be done only on "S" type of board. I have no jumpers for doing this on my board. 

I tried two different SD cards, the second being a 32 GB Kingston UHS-I, "burned" with "dd", Etcher under Linux, Etcher under Windows, with two different adapters... Always no result: I connect the power supply to the board, red light goes on, something appears at the bottom of the monitor (seems like an incomplete logo), the green light blinks for a fraction of second, and afterwards... nothing at all. I waited for minutes (up to half hour) but nothing happened.

With the same setup I succesfully prepared and booted TinkerOS 2.0.8 without any issue.

I tried to burn and boot the latest Android 6 but no success.

Is anybody able to help me?

Kind regards.
Aldo

EDIT:
I tried a third Micro SD, a Samsung Evo Plus 32 GB, and it worked. So it seems that the type of SD is very critical.

* SD Card Formatter full format of a 32GB Class 10 MicroSD
* Used Etcher to flash the card with latest Tinker Board Android image
* Used a 3A power source
* Waited hours

... and still no joy. The red light stays on. No blinking. No output to the monitor at all.

Using the same SD card and power source I was able to successfully load and boot into Debian. I am out of ideas here. Is there anything else left to try?
 have you tried factory reset?
I think it will be work.
