Pi 3 model B+ not boot

Tue Jul 17, 2018 2:41 am

Hi, every professionals,

I'm new to Raspberry Pi, and an engineer from Japan.
Last week, I bought a Pi 3 model B+ board, and a 32 GB SD card.
After I writing Raspbian image to my SD card, and setting it on my Pi board, then power it on, but it did not boot at all.
https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentati ... /README.md

The lamp on the board was flickering several times after powering on,
but the display showed nothing.

It's the problem with my Pi board? or my way?
Highly appreciated if anybody can help me to solve this "simple" problem.

Best reagards,
Akashi

1. RPi: Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+
Yes. Maker is element14.

2. microSD card : 32GB (Samsung? Sandisk? other brand?)
Samsung and Sandisk both failed.

3. Power supply and rating: __________________ (example: power adaptor 100~240V, 5V 3.0A アキズキ電子より)
100~240V, 5V 2500mA

4. Raspbian OS version: _______________________ (example: 2018-06-27-raspbian-stretch)
OS: NOOBS offline and network install
Version: 2.8.2
Date: 2018-06-27

5. Display monitor: _________________________( example: TV, PC monitor, etc)
BENQ GL2460 and My Sharp TV both failed.

6. Network connection: Ethernet cable or WiFi?
Not used.

7. Keyboard and mouse?
Mouse: a normal wired mouse made by Dell
Keyboard: Elecom wired keyboard.

8. others
My steps:
Today, I formatted my new SD card again with SDFormatter(give a card label "Pi"), and copy all of the contents of
NOOBS_v2_8_2 folder after it unzipped.

Then power on RPi 3 B+, the ACT lamp flicks some time at first.
But after that, nothing happens.

Download Raspbian lite and use Etcher to put it on a card. (No need to unzip the Raspbian as Etcher will handle that.)

Does that boot?

Alright..... its been quite a while (a year perhaps) since I used NOOBs to setup an RPi so here goes...
(Akashi-san you might find something familiar below)

1. RPi: Raspbery Pi 3 Model B+ (purchased from KSY Online Shop)
2. microSD card: 32GB Samsung Evo Plus (labeled Made in Philippines, purchased from Amazon)
3. Power supply and Rating: Power adaptor 5v 2.4A, microUSB power cable rated 2.4A (both bought from 100yen shop Daiso)
4. Raspbian OS version: Raspbian Stretch with Desktop installed from NOOBs 2.8.2
5. Display Monitor: 7inch HDMI monitor (bought as part of a set of my very first RPi3B, again from Amazon)
6. Network: during setup, no network connection. after setup, WiFi
7. Keyboard and mouse: 2.4GHz wireless mouse and keyboard (again from Amazon)
8. Others: no other peripherals attached.

My setup booted normally and proceeded with the installation process.
Even the power adaptor from the 100yen shop Daiso provided ample power for the setup.

....and I wrote to this forum using the newly setup Raspbian Stretch on RPi3B+

I suggest you try again Akashi-san.

1. first check if your microSD card is fake using H2Testw or FakeFlashTest

2. if you doubt your power supply and cable, try the ones from Daiso because it worked on my setup

3. download again NOOBs 2.8.2, unzip it and copy the unzip contents to your 32GB Samsung or Sandisk microSD.

4. if NOOBs fail, then download 2018-06-27-raspbian-stretch image and flash it to your available 32GB microSD card using Etcher.

Hi drgeoff and DougieLawson

Thank you very much for your help.

> Download Raspbian lite and use Etcher to put it on a card. (No need to unzip the Raspbian as Etcher will handle that.)
I did it today, but nothing changed.
I used Etcher to put the following systems one by one. There was no signal output to display.
  • NOOBS
  • NOOBS Lite
  • Raspbian
  • Raspbian Lite
> Read the boot problems sticky thread at: viewtopic.php?f=28&t=58151
I've read this article for many times, but I can't find any clue to solve my problem.
(Because I'm new to Raspberry Pi)

Today, I connected the Ethernet, the LED of Ethernet was lighting all the time.
But the ACT LED stopped after flickering about 20 seconds.

By the way, the ACT LED flickers once each time if I press any of the keys(1,2,3,4).
Is there any further information about this problem?

Could be that the Pi is actually booting...
What kind of display do you have connected?

Thank you LTolledo,
> 1. first check if your microSD card is fake using H2Testw or FakeFlashTest
Yes, I checked my cards today. There is no problem with my 2 SD cards.

> 2. if you doubt your power supply and cable, try the ones from Daiso because it worked on my setup
I bought my power supply from Amazon.
And today, I bought a new one from Daiso, because it is not expensive from Daiso.

> 3. download again NOOBs 2.8.2, unzip it and copy the unzip contents to your 32GB Samsung or Sandisk microSD.
>4. if NOOBs fail, then download 2018-06-27-raspbian-stretch image and flash it to your available 32GB microSD card using Etcher.
I used Etcher, and tried NOOBS, NOOBS lite, Raspbian, Raspbian Lite one by one.
And I'm sure that my HDMI cable and Benq display are all OK.
Because I can output my Note PC's screen to my Benq display through this HDMI cable.

Lets try another method

1. format your 32GB microSD card to FAT32 format. Set the volume name as BOOT.

2. download the file bootcode.bin from this link
https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentati ... /README.md

3. copy the bootcode.bin to the microSD card. Dont copy any other files to the microSD.

4. using Etcher (or Win32DiskImager) flash 2018-06-27-raspbian-stretch.img to USB Flash Memory (Toshiba 16GB from the convenience store works for me)

5. Insert the microSD card (with bootcode.bin) to the microSD slot, plug the USB Flash Memory (from #4) to any vacant USB port

6. Turn on the power and let it boot.

You do NOT use Etcher to put NOOBS or NOOBS lite on a card. Etcher is used to put img files (or zip compressed img files) on a card.

Also as suggested above, perhaps your RPi is booting but you have a display issue. What display and how connected to the RPi?

Everybody, Many thanks to you.

I bought new HDMI cable and monitor dedicated to Raspberry Pi from Amazon, it worked!
Very exited!
