Cannot connect Xilinx platform cable to LX16 board

I tried connecting the Xilinx platform USB 2 cable. Impact doesn't recognize the board. The light on the JTAG  programmer stays orange. 

I am running the LX16 on battery. All jumpers are at default setting.

The Platform USB 2 cable should be fine. Have you successfully used this cable and host with any other boards successfully? Is the battery charged? Did you remove the jumper from JP4? JP2 must be set in the 1-2 position if you do not have an FMC card attached.

 

Has the board worked before? How long have you had it?

Both the cable and the LX16 are new. I only got them this Monday.

 

The LX16 board works fine - I tried out the serial port demo, turned on/off the LEDs. 

All the jumper settings are at default setting. JP2 is at 1-2 and JP4 is Open.

 

How do you check if the battery is fully charged. 

Working board = fully charged battery?

If the board is working, then the battery is charged enough.

 

Do you have any other board that you can verify the cable and software setup is working? Or a local FAE who can come in with their cable?
