Blank screen after some time with only cursor. OS is still responsive

  • Hi
    I am running MagicMirror 2.8 on a raspberry pi 2 with Raspbian Buster (July version) and after some time MagicMirror just goes blank. ive seen alot of other threads about this issue but so far not a solution. It runs fine for a couple of hours and then it just decides to go blank with the cursor still showing. I currently have some PIR modules “installed” but not loaded in the config.js and they didnt work out for me so im using an independent script. The script and magicmirror both stops working but the script has nothing to do with MagicMirror. Any suggestions on what to do?

    Ive included some pm2 log from the mirror and it seems to be some errors but im no expert on reading it so hopefully someone has some insight.

    :~/MagicMirror/modules $ pm2 log MagicMirror

    Thanks in advance!

  • @ollioddi playingOnSpotify encountered an error, and appears not to have handled it

  • @sdetweil Could this cause MagicMirror to go completely blank?

  • @ollioddi yep… if there is a fatal error on the module.js side, the UI dies… (goes blank)

  • @sdetweil Well that could explain it. I’ll try disabling itand letting it run over night to see if i wake up to a crashed mirror.
