Just used meter on tp1 & tp2 and gave reading of 6v from the supplied with Kit PSU. This is quite high. No devices installed.Jessie wrote:Are you waiting long enough? The boot length of RetroPie is quite long before it becomes responsive ( I would guess close to 1 to 1.5 min). My cab with no Ethernet connected I often get just a red light most of the time except when roms are loading. Are you overclocked? If your R Pi died I doubt it has anything to do with RetroPie it would be that you just got bad luck.
I did. Will send psu back to cpc and find anotherGTR2Fan wrote:That's potentially dangerously high for the Pi and anything plugged into the USB ports. I'd unplug it pretty quickly if it were mine and hunt around for another known-good PSU to test it with.
Just tried Pi with USB plugged into Mac keyboard. Meter reports 4.96V but still only red led lit. Is is fried?Jessie wrote:6 is a tad high. That means the psu is putting out more due to voltage drop through the cable and polyfuse.
