Re: Pi Zero W will not power up out of the box

I tested the Vin pin and confirmed I was getting 5V, I've then gone and burned the latest Raspbian image to the SD card again, and now it works flawlessly. Don't know why but it seems I've somehow corrupted my memory card since the last boot (perhaps I didn't shutdown properly or something.) For me ...

Re: Pi Zero W will not power up out of the box

Hi there, The replacement pi zero W that you had sent me some time back was working fine. I put it into a box for a few months pending a new project for it.

Hi Dave,

I have recieved the replacement. Using the same SD card, same Raspbian image and same PSU, this one works flawlessly :lol:

Cheers,
Brani

Hi Dave,

I think it's best I do not complicate life. Could you please just send the replacement out.

I'll place the new order some other day.

Cheers,
Brani

Re: Pi Zero W will not power up out of the box

Hi Dave, That's so strange, I'm getting some new SD cards tomorrow, hopefully it will work with those. I'm pretty sure the PSU are fine as they have worked with previous pi's.

Re: Pi Zero W will not power up out of the box

Thanks for the reply.
I took the risk and formatted my wife's memory card (without her knowledge) and put noobs on there but same thing. Absolutely no response from the pi (black screen, no LED, nothing).
