Re: Pi Zero W Temperature isuue

If temperature exceeds 56 degree Celsius then script stops working. Is it normal? No, it is not 'normal.' This is what Raspberry Pi themselves say... The Raspberry Pi is built from commercial chips which are qualified to different temperature ranges; the LAN9514 (LAN9512 on older models with 2 USB ...

Re: Only green light on

I'm using a 10000 mAh battery supplying 5v @ 2.4A through a USB-A. So that suggests you are attempting to power your RPi via one of the 'full size' USB interface connectors, rather than via the micro-usb (or usb-c on an RPi4) power socket provided for that purpose? Not necessarily a problem, just o...

Re: Clone 16 GB SD Card to 8 GB

Desktop versions of Raspbian include the SD Card Copier utility, which can clone a card to a smaller one (assuming the used space is smaller than the destination, of course). This creates another bootable card, ready to use. For backup purposes, RonR's option would be preferable. it would be wishfu...

Re: scrot -s on Raspberry pi 4 doesn't work well

So you have one tool, and two different Hardware/Operating System combinations.

That looks like too many variables to be able to draw any useful conclusion.

Can the problem be reproduced if you run the Raspbian Buster Operating System on the RPi 3 hardware?
