Can you perhaps explain what that means? I've just tried to include the output from dmesg in a post but the forum would not let me upload it as an attachment and it was too big to go in the post itself.reggie wrote:...posting the result to pastebin, then adding the link to your error report.

Connecting the composite video output to my TV no picture can be detected. Video input is working with any other source: DVD, VHS, Sat receiver. Got no oscilloscope.
Supposing incorrect configuration, setting the config file is modified from default NTSC to PAL: no change.
you could always post it as a problem you encountered, but found the solution for yourself.wdevauld wrote:Your troubleshooting forum code of conduct lists that it is only for posting problems. I may on the other hand have a solution that came from following a hunch based on evidence from several other of the 'Pi Locks Up' type threads.
Would it be alright if I posted a thread about my solution? Or should I find someone elses' problem to hang my suggestion off of?
Not really sure what you are commenting on, but the Quick Start guide has everything you are talking about here in it. Did you read that? Or just dive in without reading any of the instructions?Liamthe1st wrote:Well all I can is thanks to not having any prior notification and being used to being able to just unplug and go then reconnect I did not realise the sensitive nature of Pi.
I found a TV with a HDMI input, a keyboard and a 5v phone charger 0.7amps, Too late for my preloaded SD card through. I used an adapter and a long lead before I read the sensitive stuff.
My Pi arrived at Two PM and the preloaded card at 9am both are now in my tool box for a long time to recover.
How about a BIG warning notice. WHAT NOT TO DO ON THE BOX.
To save inexperienced guys like me making this error one invoice for the Pi and one for the preloaded SD card no warnings no instructions
The help on this web site is very good but "Do Not unplug the Card "or "The Power " should be the very first thing before run off and plug it all together.

The current list items clearly don't cover the situation and it feels a bit strange reporting your own topic using the present options.
You should have started a new post and not tack onto any random topic.rick67 wrote:Hi all
I recently got mi RPi2 and have had trouble booting up. The rainbow screen flashes, code scrolls up the screen, then blank. The rainbow screen appears again and flashes. If I hold the shift key down, it sometimes completes the boot, other times it re-installs raspian. If and when it does boot, the low voltage indicator in the upper right corner is always there and the red power LED on the board flashes only occasionally. All components are brand new out of the box (like the power supply). Even when booting up with only a power supply and a video screen, red LED only flashes occasionally. What should I do to fix this?
