Actually, I can't say that I'd be able to determine whether it went to
poweroff or hung. The only thing I know is that I have to push the
RESET1 button on the Debug Board to get any response out of it (it just
does the exact same thing again when I do).

I have seen it all white, and I have seen it all black. Back when it
used to boot once in 50 times, I often saw the LCM seeming to "decay"
from a previously shown picture before bringing up the u-boot menu. But
today it was mostly black while doing this, and then at the end of the
day it did it while showing completely white for a short while.
Is there any test points I can probe to prove your theory? Anything I
can put a probe on to affect the capacitance and make it work (since you
said in the other thread that your CRO probe was able to affect it)?
