Re: 2x failed Pi 4's

I argee on the statistical insignificance of the failures, but they are there and something seems to be odd here After some discussions and thinking of the externals in the cases where the pi‘s died I came to the conclusion that the issues has to be the PSU All 3 units where connected to the same o...

Re: 2x failed Pi 4's

Thanks all - to be safe, I've ordered a replacement power supply. For the safe of $A20 it's cheap insurance ;)

Re: 2x failed Pi 4's

If two Raspberries purchased at different times from different suppliers are out of order, then the first thing I would think would be improper operation or a poor-quality power supply. Therefore, in this case, I immediately checked the power supply (even if this power supply is recommended). Or at...

Re: 2x failed Pi 4's

Please tell us about your power source. My friends and I are observing critical error messages of version 4 and almost always get messages that they used “official” power sources. It is so amazing that it interested me. I do not use an official power source, so I can not check it. However, the foru...

Re: 2x failed Pi 4's

2nd failure: USB SSD, USB HDD + external powered USB case with 2x HDD in it. I'm running pretty much this exact same setup, without the external powered USB case with 2x HDD in it. I've found you don't need to do the bolts on the FLIRC case up that tightly to get good heatsink contact. I think that...

Re: 2x failed Pi 4's

Wasn't that ZWave adapter the one with the odd USB fault on it? Hence the hub?
Correct. Without the USB 2.0 hub it wasn't recognised by the Pi 4.

2x failed Pi 4's

Hi All, Looking for some help. Ordered a Pi 4 from Pimoroni back in August. Set it up in a Flirc Pi4 case with an office power supply, and within 12 hours it had failed and wouldn't boot (orange and green LEDs lit constantly). Tried all the recovery options, nothing changed the LED status. Checked p...

Re: FTDI USB Serial Hangs

yup, spoke too soon - I got about 15 minutes before the hang, so an improvement, but not completely fixed :(

Re: FTDI USB Serial Hangs

Me too unfortunately. I have an FTDI Usb-Serial adapter that is working fine on an Arm based Qnap device that's running Debian Squeeze, but when I use the same device with my Raspberry Pi, the Pi locks solid within a minute or two. I am currently running the Pi from the USB port of the Qnap, but it ...
