Re: NOOBS wont start.

I had this problem, till I read elsewhere that the Label used for the SD can be a problem.
Must only use UPPER case letters.
For me it was using Label "R-PI NOOBS" that was the problem, presumably the "-"
Changed it to "NOOBS" and all OK :D

Re: Can a Pi Camera really kill a R-Pi3?

Thanks Jamesh.
I thought that would be the case.
Pi must have died coincidentaly - Can't see why else, as the Pi was in a pi-case - so no stray bits of wire about.
Should be able to get a replacement from CPC-Farnell if it was not me being clumsy.
