Re: How to connect wheels to my rasberry pi 3?

You will need a motor controller https://www.modmypi.com/raspberry-pi/ro ... oards-1019 - There are a few different types so you'll need to have a read of the product description and decide which one will suit your needs best.

Re: Relay Board - closing at "Random"

Have you tested a different GPIO pin? GPIO_07 looks like it is one of the SPI pins so might be worth trying a different pin just to make sure you don't have any conflicts (even with SPI being disabled) Do you have any other scripts running on the Pi? Maybe there's a script interacting with GPIO_07? ...

Sounds like there's a bug with the latest version of LibreElec.

Try going back to the previous version you were using to see if the issue happens.

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

Not a problem! Glad you are back up and running. The activity light not lighting is actually a really good indication that there is an issue with the SD card ;) no light means the SD card isn't being read. That will either be a hardware fault with the Pi, are hardware fault with the SD card, or most...

Re: Pi Camera Box 24/7 reliability

I personally had a Raspberry Pi 2 setup as a dog cam, using the ModMyPi camera box and never had any over heating issues. Not sure if a Pi Zero or Pi 3 naturally runs hotter or not though. You say you have the same issues even when everything isn't in a case, so is it definitely the Pi overheating c...

Re: Raspberry Pi 3 HDMI port stopped working

Unfortunately we don't look into hardware related issues in much detail ourselves, they simply get sent back to the manufacture for analysis. So I wouldn't be able to suggest any components you could try replacing.

Sorry I can't be of much more help!

Re: Raspberry Pi 3 HDMI port stopped working

Take a look at all the HDMI configurations available - https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentati ... t/video.md - and perhaps have a play with some of the settings.

You could try boosting the HDMI signal

Code: Select all

config_hdmi_boost=7

Re: Raspberry Pi 3A+ failed, will not boot

Hi, I have been using it to run a 3d printer over usb (using a custom version of raspbian running octoprint). I haven't had anything connected to the gpio pins, just usb. I have tried a different power supply. The power supply and sd card I had been using with this pi works ok on another pi3b+ Than...

Re: Raspberry Pi 3A+ failed, will not boot

What were you doing with the Pi before it died?
Has anything been plugged into the GPIO pins of the Pi?
Are you able to try a different power supply?
