Isn't the power boost 500 only giving 500mA? Enough for your pi3 setup?Duhjoker wrote:Power supply is fine I'm using a power boost 500.

The only error message I get is from trying to start emulationstation it says something about SDL. But it does that when not running fbcp. But like I said earlier when I start FBCP I then have no access, meaning nothing I can do with the keyboard works afterward. You can type in emulationstation or killall fbcp but nothing happens.
4 1/2 hours on which Pi? The Pi3 uses more power than the Pi2. It is probable that the power boost 500 can't keep up. Try with a known good 2.5A supply with a known good cable. Don't waste time looking for other solutions until you have eliminated the power supply as the cause.Duhjoker wrote:Seems to be. I get around 4 1/2 hours. No blips or failures that I've noticed.
All of this started when I switched to the Pi 3 and the latest Jessie. I had the same set up on my Pi 2 and everything worked fine.
Is it a bug with the new 3D graphics generator maybe?
fist PowerBoost 500, then PowerBoost 1000... really...Duhjoker wrote:Go to late to check the power but I'm thinking about going ahead and buying the powerboost 1000. Same size so no worry about where to put it.
kind of miss-engineering, when you make first your case and then try to get fit all your non-tested components into that case.I'm gonna finish my case tomorrow after noon and I can tell you how it's working.
An may be this is related to older RPi's, which uses less current then the model 3 ...Which power supply should I use?
It is strongly recommended to use a stand-alone 5V/2A power adapter, because the PC's USB port might have not enough power to support the Pi and LCD.
