How can I solve this problem? How about doing this: 1. Power the Raspberry Pi with its own 5v 2.5A PSU with thick microSUB cable. 2. Power the Arduino with its own PSU (5V 2A perhaps) 3. Connect the USB deviced thru a powered Hub.. Its still up to you to apply the solution....... or continue wonder...

Re: yellow bolt icon appears with sufficient power supply

You using that power supply unit (PSU) on a Raspberry Pi 2B? Then it should be OK.

If you use that on a Raspberry Pi 3B or Raspberry Pi 3B+, that is expected (and no buts about it), as the minimum recommended PSU rating is 5V 2.5A with thick cables, and not some phone's charger...

Re: 3 B+ Shutdown and Reboot Issues

Can you try installing again from the start? This time don't do any update and upgrade. See if the problem persist. If that is OK, then start adding your favorite packages/apps. Then re-start again. If that worked fine, then make an image backup of your "good" setup. Once you have backed up your "go...
