Re: Automating wifi configuration

Use ssh? Connect to a known network (maybe use your mobile phones mobile data to tether) and just install connect bot or something, set up a static ip (search Google on how to do that) and now you have the same ip so connectbot will work. For example, I have 192.168.1.77 so I can just leave it from ...

Re: Retropie HDMI = No sound

Hello and welcome to the Troubleshooting section of the pi forums.

Try to issue "sudo raspi-config", then using your arrow keys, navigate to Advanced options (9) and in there navigate to audio and select your source.

Hope that helped ;)

Re: Resistor broken RPi3

Well, does the pi work? As in, does it boot? I do not recommend soldiering it back unless you have a sturdy hand a good experience with soldiering. If I was you, I'd take it back to the re seller for either a refund or a new one.

I have a fear that your backup sdcard might be corrupt. If you have an android phone, put the sdcard in there and format it there, then put it in your PC and format it there and redo the SD card copy. If you have any error please post them here :D

Have you tried to downgrade your pi? I think I have read about this before and the solution was to downgrade, I'm sorry but I don't have a link.
What does "downgrade" exactly mean?
Install an older version of raspbian.

Re: Settings and changes persist after re-installing

NO! windows formatter will only find and format the very first (FAT) partition on the card, and ignore all the other (much larger) partitions. That is not what you want! You should remove all partitions, create one partition, and format it as FAT32. Ah yes, OP, if you have an android phone with an ...

If it only happens once, at boot, that is normal. As long as it does not happen at random times, that is unusual. I have seen multiple youtube videos were that happens, infact this (if you forward to 5:30) will show it.

Open a terminal window and type;

sudo nano /boot/config.txt
Then look for "hdmi_drive=2" and remove the "#" sign before the line. Once that is done, hit ctrl+x and y and enter. Then type;

Code: Select all

sudo reboot
And you should be good to go.
