Re: LEDs

Thanks for all your answer. As I mentioned earlier I am in the process of buying a newer Raspberry Pi, maybe Pi2, maybe Pi 3. It seems you are right. If the short is within the CPU, it is not financialy viable to replace, so in those terms, this piece of hardware is dead. I conclude my research and ...

Re: LEDs

@ GTR2Fan What ever the case, issue, or, outcome is with the device, why would anyone lose patience in anticipation of some kind of closure? @ rpdom PIN 6 is not what you imagine it to be. It is the two holes next to RG2 sometimes referred to as pin 1 and pin 2. Its code on the board is P2 D2. When ...

Re: LEDs

I would like to hear from breakie12 as this member was closest to what I have discovered later. I have actually started work on the fault few days ago, when I registered. Thought I would get some practical advice, but the only conclusion reached is, in fact, you can hardware reset Raspberry Pi, Mode...

Re: LEDs

1.) No one has measured any current flow yet 2.) Having the device plugged into power in this state all day today from 6:00 A.M. to 14:20 P.M. has two positive results: a.) the green LED has returned after being gone for 20 days of occasional probes b.) no increase in temperature, and no further pro...

Re: LEDs

I have been doing some work, research and work again. First, the voltage regulator, RG2, shows the power of 4.56 V input, and 2.5 V as the output. So, there is a drop in voltage, not an increase. Today, I did not measure any current flow, however this is not important at this time. Second there is a...

Re: LEDs

You are right. I did not understand that the short was brief and thought it might have caused a permanent "break" in current flow. However if the CPU overheats again and again as I connect power, it can not be dead or as you say "...it will not recover...". Basic logic will tell you that if somethin...

Anyone notice number 13342 on top of USBs in the pictures. What does this number mean? What is the drawing next to it. I have seen these additional codes that PC Technicians use when refurbishing a computer or providing any sort of final checks in post production. Just wandering.

Re: LEDs

Excuse! Soldering for sure. No board parts melt. 70 Watt solderer with 2/3 cm thick tip. It can only be used in big parts electronics (how big is 2/3 cm in electronics - certainly too thick for most soldering) Paid 50 EUROS, sold for 5. Stupid.

They might not be of help, but certainly it gives one more of a hold on to a concept.

Yes... When turned on again within seconds, it all works fine for a minute. The welding I was doing with the first monitor (brand new Pi from UK) was being done with a 3-4 mm head (of the welder). Why do they make all these (even the pro ones) with such a thick tip, and why isn't there a smaller thi...

Re: LEDs

I re-formatted the SD card, installed NOOBS. Still the same. Can one of you just plug in Raspberry Pi B without any mouse, keyboard or monitor, just the SD card inside and watch how long the LEDS remain. If they turn off after a minute, it means it is just an issue with peripherals.
