Re: Small part fell off my pi

I fail to see how this will cause problems on boot. This looks like its related to audio jack when i examined my pi.

Re: memory problem?

Please increase your swap size, but the problem will come back after a month or so if you don't reboot.
As people mentioned above, make your code lighter. I do not have any experience on nodejs though

Re: memory problem?

Let me be clear and explain You have an sd card with 8gb/ 16gb memory. Now there is some memory alloted for swap memory. As i can tell from the top command run You posted, your swap memory is still at 100mb. Considering it got full in 5 days you got to increase it. Now this entirely depends on your ...

Have a look here https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=46472 Increase it rather than buying a new one. But since your sd card is 8Gb only, keep the swap below 1 gb. Edit:-I have misread your post, 16gb is totally fine. Only if required(in your case, i dont see the need) get the 64gb sd ...

You have to be careful while writing the path. Remember "movies" and "Movies" are two different words.

Re: Fried my pi . Please help me to understand the root cause.

A better alternative would be an arduino as it can control relays too and you could add a realtime clock to it. Plus it costs less than 5 dollars for sure. Using a raspberry pi is an overkill for your project. Get a pi, Use it for more advanced stuff I have fried my arduino and dont regret it much. ...

I don't remember deleting it myself. Was it removed by a moderator? If it was, nobody told a reason for deleting it. Is there someone who dislikes me and snipes out my posts?

But if you go back to the original post, all relays, wires and raspberry pi are placed in a box... Now OP made ventilation pores to the box and later it rained. Thats how water got in. If you see, worse things could have happened if relays got hit with water. So the box being waterproof is the main ...

Guess water safety comes above heat protection in this situation.

Re: Fried my pi . Please help me to understand the root cause.

Again, it depends on what kind of plastic is used. Some plastics can still manage 50 degree celsius.
With proper ventilation of course
Edit:- If plastic can create heat inside, aluminium can also heat up itself. That is also bad right.

Re: Fried my pi . Please help me to understand the root cause.

Next time you think of ventilation, do not make holes on the top of the box, make it on the sides, that way risk is reduced... Also Buy a raspberry case for extra safety( I made one from cardboard, it is not so safe but works for me) Edit:- If you notice the first photo, you will observe there are t...
