I am posting because I am having some trouble with connecting my Raspberry Pi to a monitor via HDMI. (Please forgive me as I am very new to this process).
After an initial attempt with a borrowed bootable microSD card, everything went smoothly. However, as a second attempt, I had accidentally inserted a blank microSD card without NOOBS installed, and thus once trying to connect to a monitor I ran into an issue.
After running into this issue (not yet realizing that it may have been because NOOBS was not yet installed onto the microSD card) I began to troubleshoot. The first thing I did was power off the Raspberry Pi, eject the blank microSD card, and insert the previous bootable microSD card.
After doing this I still was getting no HDMI signal on the monitor. I have tried multiple HDMI cables, and have also tried installing NOOBS on the previously blank microSD card and still get no HDMI signal.
When I plug the Raspberry Pi in via Micro USB, the "PWR" light turns on and is red. I have taken a look at https://elinux.org/R-Pi_Troubleshooting ... put_at_all, however, I have no idea how to interpret any of these terms.
Any help with this would be highly appreciated, thank you and warmest regards,
