Pixel LS Firmware successfully installed now not booting

Hey all,

I’ve had this leaky screen Pixel LS for years, loved the form factor, hated that it was EOL’s and hated even more that the screen was melting. I’d already done the deed with my older Pixel, so I figured, let’s try it with this thing and maybe it can run headless.

Went through the steps got the notification that it was successfully installed, even remembered to backup the old firmware, now . . . no POST.

Pressing the power button lights up the keyboard backlights but nothing appears on screen, then after a few minutes the keyboard goes dark and nothing has happened. Thoughts?
