    Teensy 3.6 will not run without USB

    Hi
    I am using external power so I cut the USB power link at the bottom of the board. The program will run as long as I have the USB cable in and programmed the device once. If I just power up normally it will not run. What have I missed?

    Hard to say without seeing code...

    Most common issue is something like: while (!Serial) ;

    Also check which version of Teensyduino you have. Click Help > About in Arduino.

    A problem with startup on 3.6 with slow rising power supplies was recently fixed. If you have an older version of the software and one of those slow-starting power supplies, you might be experiencing that problem.

    I second KurtE suggestion. Typical case is a loop waiting for Serial Monitor to show up.
