No booting

Mon Jan 13, 2014 7:31 pm

I tried to use my raspberry pi for the first time on my tv using the composite video cable. I connected everything but it just wouldn't boot. The power light was on but the ACT light only flickered when the SD card wasn't in probably. What should I do?

Do you have access to a different (higher spec) PSU?

read the sticky, it gives extensive pointers about troubleshooting boot problems.
