Can't get pi to work!

Fri Feb 15, 2013 7:53 pm

I have set up everything on my pi just as the quick start explained but as I reached the point of having to boot it for the first time it will not connect. I used hdmi output connected to my TV. I prepped the SD card connected the pi to mains using a HTC phone charger and have connected the mouse and keyboard to the USB ports. But it still won't come up with the boot up page on screen. Any ideas?

When you plug the pi in are there lights on it?
Is your power supply good enough? Should be >500mA, preferably 700mA at 5V I think.

Hi sheardo123
what do you mean by connect?
Do the led's flash when you plugin the power cable?
What do you mean by " I prepped the SD card connected the pi to mains using a HTC phone charger " ?
The HDC phone charger , does this produce +5v with at least 700ma ?
Have you put an operating system on your SD card?
The more info you can give , the easier it is to help ;-)
