(At least, that is the claim made by Raspberry Pi themselves.)
So what could be wrong? What size micro SD card are you trying to use?

How did you (try to) install "2020-02-13-raspbian-buster-full.zip" on that uSD card (ie. with what tools and on what computer etc.)?
If you didn't use it perhaps re-try with the new imaging tool: https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/
Still running Raspbian Jessie or Stretch on some older Pi's (an A, B1, 2xB2, B+, P2B, 3xP0, P0W, 2xP3A+, P3B+, P3B, B+, and a A+) but Buster on the P4B's & P400. See: https://www.cpmspectrepi.uk/raspberry_pi/raspiidx.htm
My God! it's power supply issue! I switched another power supply. then it worked. I have many usb power unit. I thought they are same, so I just grab one for RPi. it lights up RPi, seems no problem. but it is problem! I tried many, many times. finally come here for help.
hope this could help other people having same issue.
