raspberry pi 2 steady small color pattern squre near top rig

Sat Mar 07, 2015 10:06 am

Hello,

I am a raspberry pi 2 model user now. It works fine.

On the desktop top right corner I see a steady (not blinking) small square color pattern. Does that mean pi is getting enough power?

Thanks,
Simon Mandy

Thank you.

I increased the voltage (have a voltage regulator) and the rainbow square went away.
