Re: RPi not booting after power out

At any random time, a Pi running off an SD card could be writing to the card, or the card itself could be doing housekeeping. If the power is cut during either of those, the card can become corrupted.

Re: Is there an open source firmware for the Raspberry Pi computers?

No. The Pi Zero uses the BCM2835 system-on-a-chip, which combines a CPU and a VideoCore 4 GPU -- the same basic SoC as on the Pi A/B/+ models although with a faster clock speed (which does not necessarily mean it was manufactured any differently1). My understanding is that the GPU bootstraps the CPU...

Re: Does raspberry pi support any version of Basic?

The good news for those people, and for anyone else who wants to learn BASIC from scratch or revisit an old friend, is that TinyBASIC is now available for the Raspberry Pi. Flag output, and the BASIC you need to draw it. Click to visit the example code page.

Re: Raspberry pi 4 not booting after plugin camera ribbon in wrong side

Raspberry PI`s do not usually stop working for no reason: in the majority of cases, not booting points to an issue with the SD card, not to a defective Pi. It is also important to note that the Pi might be booting, but there may be another reason why you are not getting video output.

Re: M2 SSD for Pi4

If you attach an external M2 SSD to your Raspberry Pi 4 B, you will get significantly faster app opens and file transfers. One of the most important improvements in Pi 4 is its USB 3.0 interface. Where previous Raspberry Pi models were limited to a USB 2’s theoretical 480 Mbps / 60 MBps maximum spe...

Re: Enable SSH when creating SD card

To enable SSH automatically every time the Pi starts you need to :
Prepare a fresh SD card with the latest version of Raspbian.
Insert the SD card in your PC.
Create a file on the boot partition named “ssh”
Eject the SD card, insert it into your Pi and power it up.
Hope this helps!

The Raspberry Pi 3 can overheat and due to its lack of a fan, it automatically shuts down or disables overclocking to prevent severe hardware damage. Whenever the temperature goes higher than 85°F, one of these two things will happen. The Pi3 has been reported to generate more heat than previous mod...

The Pi 4 is not the first high-profile device to get the USB-C spec wrong. The Nintendo Switch also has a non-compliant USB-C port and Nintendo has warned against using substandard cables with the device.

No, I don't think it is possible. You cannot connect 2 batteries. If you somehow manage to connect it you have to be very careful with the power supply. As raspberry pi gets burn if power supply is more than 3.7V
