I purchased a Raspberry Pi a few years ago, tinkered with it for a few months and eventually lost it (or so I thought). Recently I found it in the back of a cupboard and decided to try and get it up and running again.
When I first booted it, I noticed that the green LED was glowing faintly rather than blinking as it should be, and there was no image on my monitor. From this I recognised the problem as an issue with the booting program on the SD card. I formatted the SD, redownloaded the Raspbian operating system and transferred it to the card according to guidelines that I found on here.
Even after doing that, when I booted the Pi I still got the faintly glowing green LED, suggesting that what I did did not fix the problem. Is it a hardware issue? Or did I do something wrong?
