Re: Keyboard doesn't work

It would still be interesting to see how far they get by performing the steps, assuming a Windows PC is available. Worth a try.

Re: LOGIK LP4HUB10, TP-LINK TL-WN722N, Logitech K260 conflic

Can also report I have a LOGIK LP4HUB10 and this puts through 4.79v (or 4.78v with a mouse, kbd and USB to serial converter attached. Pi runs fine though. Not noticed any issues. However if I do, I will be taking it back to Currys as 4.8v is not 5v as it says on the tin. Nevertheless, £12 for a LOGI...

Re: Recommended USB power supplies?

Don't buy unbranded PSUs even from high street "pound shops" or even ebay. (Data cables on the other hand OK, coz if they dont work, it wont break your Pi).

Re: Power issues? How to tell?

Just tried the gadget and it can report volts, watts and amp usage (down to 0.nnn type scale amps) so maybe worth a punt? Try a Lidl near you! :D

I originally bought it to monitor how many watts by homebrew NAS laptop was using (about 17 watts incidentally) but good for Pi monitoring also now :D

Re: Raspberry Pi Won't Boot, Red Power Light Only

Maybe try some AA batteries if you only have 1 PSU - I believe it works - search forums first for exact details on this method.

Moderator edit: Don't directly connect batteries, only use a real SPU, batteries may damage your PI!

If it is Debian from April (or maybe others!), your card might be too fast (Class 6 / 10?) and you may need to patch the O/S

Problem is due to faster sd cards imo.

Follow this completely for a 100% (afaik) cure. Just copying img and elf may seem to cure but you will need to do more.
