Re: Faulty Pi?

Following on from my post yesterday, I rang Farnell at 7:30 last night and they said that I could send it back and await a refund but if I wanted a replacement I had to pay for it again by credit card there and then. They did say they had some spare stock in case of problematic units so I wouldn't h...

Re: Faulty Pi?

I've had the same thing. Run's for about 2 minutes and then goes off. I've tried both HDMI and composite, 3 different SD cards, 2 different chargers, 2 different USB cables to a powered hub and with or without a keyboard &/ mouse. Only 1 thing fixes it; changing it for the second Pi that came fr...

Re: Red LED on Faint Green LED

I'm having very similar problems. Pi from Farnell arrived last week and I've only been able to boot it a few times and then when I do it only runs for a minute or two before the screen goes off. Tried 3 different power supplies and my Apple iphone charger gave the best results (backed by very good m...

Re: Invitation to order from RS

That one is starting to worry me as well. I placed my order on Tuesday (61xx). The description in the e-mail said they would be shipping within a week, but the actual order said 3 weeks. I hope the difference is not the power supply, particularly as it was listed as in stock when I placed the order...

Re: How long until Abishur closes this thread?

<t>He seems to be a bit stressed today. I imagine it's got something to do with being repeatedly asked the same things.  (When can I have one? Can I have more than 1?
