Just to confirm the situation - are you literally
using the same (external) hardware and software ie. uSDHC card, power supply, cables etc. and just
swapping the Pis? (Power supply and/or uUSB power cable differences could contribute)
Still running Raspbian Jessie on some older Pi's (an A, B1, B2, B+, P2B, 3xP0, P0W) but Stretch on my 2xP3A+, P3B+, P3B, B+, A+ and a B2. See: https://www.cpmspectrepi.uk/raspberry_pi/raspiidx.htm
