There is a Troubleshooting guide in Issue 60 of the MagPi magazine which you can access for free online. https://www.raspberrypi.org/magpi/issues/60/

The Raspberry Pi Foundation have a Troubleshooting Guide on their website: https://www.raspberrypi.org/learning/tr ... ing-guide/

These forums have a post which contains all the information currently available about getting an RPi to boot: "STICKY: Is your Pi not booting? (The Boot Problems Sticky)" at viewtopic.php?f=28&t=58151

If you cannot resolve the issue yourself using the above mentioned guides, it may be worth contacting your retailer to see what "return, test, repair or replace" service or warranty they offer.

Hi,

Thank you for your Reply.Yes i gone through the MAGPI and links mentioned above.
Some DOubts?

1)How much time it will take Blown Fuses(Reset Fuses) to work Properly if those fuses corrupted.

2)for formatting sd card iam using Linux OS(GPARTED,fdisk)..But in SD card Image writing instruction mentioned SD Card Formatter.is there any difference?

3)Can i Replace (soldering) new SD Card connector with the Place of old sd card connector?

4)if My problem is not solved from the above instructions what i have to do with PI?My money is weasted is PI is corrupted.

Depending on exactly how you did that it may have been what has damaged the Pi.

My recommendation would be to purchase another Pi and not attempt to power it from the USB serial adapter.

It does not seem possible to debug the board. You do not have a meter so cannot test voltage levels. If it is a hardware issue you will not be able to repair it yourself. You may be able to find someone locally who could help you. Which country are you in ?

The recommended course would be to contact the retailer. If the shop which sold it to you won't accept returns or replace it, and you cannot get them to change their stance, you may have no choice but to purchase a new Pi board. I would recommend purchasing from an official supplier or a shop which will accept returns and offer replacements.
