Re: How do you know if you need to add a cooling component for your Pi4?

I have a problem with some of the things said here. 80+ is when you should be worried and 70+ is a small alarm No, you shouldn't be at all "worried" at 80C, and 70C isn't any kind of alarm. The Pi will run at temperatures hot enough to burn you. This is completely normal behaviour. At about 80°C a t...

Re: Does Pi4 4gb have weaker wifi than pi-zero-w?

I have an ASUS RT-AC68U dual-band (2.4/5GHz 3x3 MIMO) router at the end of the hallway, and I've found the WiFi reception of my Pi 4B2 to be slightly weaker than other computers in the same location, but it doesn't impact performance terribly. My 4B2 is USB booting from an SSD and connecting to 5GHz...

Re: How come the Serial Console needs to be enabled

It was enabled on early versions of Raspbian, but it no longer is. I forget exactly when that change was made.

Re: How come the Serial Console needs to be enabled

You can edit config.txt to enable it (which can be done from a Windows/Mac OS computer, since it's located on a FAT32 partition). Just add enable_uart=1 as a new line for the serial console.

Re: Screen does not open with the latest raspbian

We'll need more details to help.

The OS you specified works fine on both of my Pi4 computers, so the problem is something in your setup (power supply, monitor, cables, etc).

It is known that the Pi4 has trouble with 1366x768 resolution displays.

That should do it. Nope, that won't upgrade the bootloader unless you edit /etc/default/rpi-eeprom-update and change critical to stable, and even then the bootloader configuration will be wrong (BOOT_ORDER=0x1), because the default configuration does not get updated by apt.

Re: Latest Pi Imager and Raspbian Image file unable to use in Pi Model 3 B & B+

Rebooting is almost certainly a power issue. I know you said it worked before, but we've seen this before (many times).

What are you using for a power supply?

FYI
There is nothing wring with the 2020-05-27 images. I have used them in both the 3B and 3B+ models, as well as the 4B and Pi Zero/Zero W.
