over-temperature. what is the remedy ?

Mon Dec 05, 2016 5:30 pm

I have been using pi 3 with jessie and have had no issues. But last couple of days
the over-temperature icon keeps popping up (halfway up red ) which i read in another post here as that the arm is limited.

Is there any remedy for this ?
I am somewhat surprised since I have just one "tkinter python" gui program that I am running.
There has never been a problem before. !

Take the lid off your closed case. Maybe add a heat sink - they sell them for $1 on ebay.

Maybe you'd check your clock speed? Did you check softwares running using "top" command?

The top command shows my python script running with >100% of CPU. But I have had this pi and been running the same thing for months and never had this issue. (I have not run the top before this so I dont know if it was that way before)
I had done an update and upgrade yesterday. (not an rpi-update/rpi-upgrade as I misstated before !The problem started after that.
Is there a way to roll back ?

I doubt that apt-get update/upgrade would cause your problem. rpi-update is something you should almost never do. I've never heard of 'rpi-upgrade'.

sorry I mis-stated...I did not do the rpi-update/rpi-upgrade. I did only the sudo apt-get update/upgrade
