Re: Problem with GPIO pins

If you are still able to boot the RPi3B, how about re-tasking it to be an alternative desktop PC or a media player.

at least you'll still have some good use for it. :D

You can't kill an I/O pin just by controlling a different one, there has to have been an incorrect physical connection.

Now, if I might digress, I don't understand this WiringPi numbering business. For my Forth tutorial I use WiringPi for the GPIO control, and I had no trouble using pin assignments as per the GPIO (BCM) numbering. If the numbering had been as per that link in gordon77's post, it wouldn't have worked. Somebody please explain.

I rewired everything according to gordon77's link and now everything works OK.

This is not right... I ran the * gpiotest * today again, just to be sure again ( because I can not reconcile that 4 GPIO's doesn't work anymore ). And for surprise when I ran it again, there was + 1 GPIO that don't work. I didn't play with raspberry in the last 2 days ( actually since I've made the first gpiotest). This is insane.
