SAMA5D34-EK hangs sometimes when power-up the board

Hi All,
I've got a weird problem with my SAMA5D34-EK board. Sometimes when I power up the board, it hangs with fixed Blue LED like SAM-BA monitor. If we reset the board, it remains in that state. If I remove the battery or the CPU module from the board, the functioning resumes regular.
It seems the external clock won't start.
Any suggestions?
Thank you

"Weird" is subjective, and conveys no technical or diagnostic information.

So you're claiming that the board can boot without the battery and/or CPU module?
(Without battery is possible. Without SoM is impossible.)

Describe the problem's symptoms, not your guesses.

If reseating components alleviates the issue, then it seems more like bad or dirty contacts.
