Raspberry PI wont startup
Can somebody help me! I just bought a Raspberry pi 3 and installed Raspbian full on it. I also installed MagicMirror on it.
When I first ran the raspberry pi everything worked fine but since I restarted the pi it won’t start up again and the green ACT light doesn’t light up anymore.
I tried to reinstall the software on the SD card with the official raspberry pi imager v.1.4
I’m now trying to use the official SD card formatter software from the SD Association.
if that doesn’t work I’m going to try another sd card.
I have done some research on google about the subject but all answers tell you the same thing. they ask you if you have installed the right power supply.
if you have the HDMI plug in the HDMI0 port and if you have an operating system installed on the SD card which I have using the raspberry pi imager.
if you have any tips please leave them in the comments of this post!
I use Win32 Disk Imager for putting images onto SD cards.
I’ve had zero issues with RPi imager
@Zack1324 I use the same SD Card Formatter but it sounds like your sd card could be bust. SD Card Formatter will format a bust card. I have had a few of those before.
@mumblebaj so trying a new SD CARD could resolve the problem?
@Zack1324 - Absolutely. Over time, they just go bad. That could be the problem.
I would copy the
config.jsfile to another computer first, then format & burn the Raspbian OS to the new card. Run through the Pi setup, use @sdetweil installation scripts to get Magic Mirror up & running and then copy the
config.jsto the new card. Then it’s just a matter of installing the modules.
