The Pi 3 B doesn't do the 10 flash thing either does it?NickT wrote:I recently bought a Zero W. It works well but I have noticed that when it is powered down the LED does not make the 10 flashes that other Pis do. I did comment on this in another thread which was concerned with the fact that initially the LED didn't light up at all on the W but is now fixed. I'd hoped that a developer from the Foundation might make a comment about the missing flashes but there was none.
When I do power down, the LED does turn off, so is it safe to assume that it is then OK to pull the power lead out once this has happened?
My Pi3 flashes at me when it's safe to power off, with my Zero W the green LED just goes out, I have assumed this is the signal that it's done it's business....noggin wrote:The Pi 3 B doesn't do the 10 flash thing either does it?
Code: Select all
My PiZero (not wireless model) does flash its single LED on power down. That's why I was perplexed and slightly miffed that the ZeroW doesn't flash. It's always reassuring to get an ACK for a command and the ZeroW doesn't seem to do that like its non wireless predessor.DougieLawson wrote:The PiZ PiZC and PiZW only have one LED so it's different to all others. .
Except, also, the Zeros, and the A models, and I think some of the early B models, if not all of them.solar3000 wrote:The other thing you could watch for is the USB device. It should go off too, except in the A series where the USB just stays on.
There has been a few Raspbian Jessie updates in the last few days.rpdom wrote:There have been some issues with the firmware not driving the Zero W's LED correctly. The initial release didn't show activity on the LED. The later release did, but doen't show the ten flashes at power down.
It will be fixed. I don't know if the fixed version has been released yet.
