MagicMirror Stuck/Freeze

  • Hi Maybe some one can help with the following bug.

    once I started the Magic mirror V2 beta everything looks good.
    But after a few hours / minutes everything freezes No time update our new compliments the Raspberry PI is completely stuck.

    Nothing works any more I can only remove the power en restart.
    any logging I can enable / check ?

    Let’s isolate things … can you run the rPi without MM running, just let it sit on the desktop and let it sit for a few hours, see what happens.

  • Thanks KirAsh4 for the quick reply 🙂

    That’s something I have already done.
    Without mm running the PI has no problems and works after coming back to it

    I will try It without some ‘basic’ module settings and check if its something in a specific module.

    Can you try running MM with the default sample config that it comes with? Let it sit for a while, see if it freezes then too?

    Could you try running your Pi with an other processor intensive task?

    It might be caused by you power supply. Did you try an other one?

  • okay have done some tests again running the sample config has no problems its keeps running.
    have treid with only the time. after a few hours its stuck.
    But this time I can alt tab back to the console but it will not termante the MM

    I know it sounds weird. But can you try an other power source? At least 2A.

    Couple of things:

    • Are you using a proper power supply for the pi? You want something that can provide at least 2Amps.
    • Is the rPi very hot? Do you have it in a sealed box with little air flow?
    • Have you checked the file system itself on the card? One method is to issue a forced check upon a reboot with 'sudo shutdown -F -r now' - After the reboot, look the results in '/var/log/fsck/'. If for some reason that fails when you type it in, you can try adding 'fsck.mode=force' to /boot/cmdline.txtand reboot the pi. That will force a file system check upon start up and you can watch to see if there are errors.
    • Failing that, you can always move all of your modules onto a different computer (or in the cloud somewhere), rebuild the pi from a fresh image, and try it again, see what happens.

  • okay have been working and testing the Raspberry PI 3
    Reinstalled a few times checked the SD for corruption / and the temp of the system without any problems…
    next I checked the Power supply sometimes seeing a orange box in top left corner when it was stuck.
    With other power supply same problem. after few minutes to a hour is was stuck again

    I finally found the problem not in MM but running ‘memtester 500m 2’ I found there was I Failure in the memory
    After going back to the store and getting a replacement PI the problem are fixed.
    Thanks for the suggestions and maybe this will help some one with the same problems 🙂

  • So I’m having the same propped but it different I do have The RPi 3 MB but mine overheard and then everything freezes could that just need a cooler?
