I tried logging in with
raspberrypi login: pi
Password: raspberry

This did not work. I am using the Debian image. The whole login looks like:
Debian GNU/Linux 6.0 raspberrypi tty1
raspberrypi login: (then I enter pi)
Password: (then I enter) raspberry
The response is:
Login incorrect
raspberrypi login:

So I am stuck.
Any ideas?

I had a similar problem when I started. Try typing quite a long sentence for the username, just to check whether your keyboard is working properly with the pi. On my first attempt it wasn't registering all key presses because I was trying to use quite a high powered wireless set.

Basically, if you can't type a sentence normally, try using a different (preferably normal no-frills USB) keyboard. What keyboard are you using at the minute?

Just to make sure, you say "the" debian image, but there have been two. What the data associated with your image?

Hi, I have the same problem and I use a normal no frills USB keyboard, (Microsoft wired desktop 600 black). I have restarted the pi quite a few times. Is there another solution?

I am using the version of Debian before 19-4-12, was the password different ?, I cannot login and am also using a DELL wireless keyboard and mouse, which looks as if it is typing ok by the screen.

It will not accept pi .... and raspberry as UN and PW

This is my first boot up, and HDMI will not give a picture, and AV gives overscan on screen shows as NTSC according to the TV Screen (Sharp 32in).

any ideas ..

thanks eckypi

Thanks Andrews for the pointers, I have now downloaded Debian 19-4-12 and this solves the overscan on AV, screen is now ok,

however I still have to solve the HDMI lack of signal, maybe your links will help ... regards eckypi

It is actually worth moving onto the Debian "Wheezy" beta. Despite it being labelled a beta it is a big improvement over the Debian download from 19-04.

From which country are you?

The keyboard settings for the raspberry pi are set for the american/british layout.
So the y and the z are changed.
So the password must be:

raspberrz

I hope that helped
