I had this pi for more than six months with no problems, but today, when i tried to turn it on, it would not boot. The red light is continuous, the green flicks on and off and the beginning, but the screen is blank. And that was the start of my terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.
Tried switching to an older sd card, didnt work.
Tried measuring 3V3 voltage, its fine.
Then i tried to turn it on with everything but the power supply and the sd card plugged out. That worked.
Except, when i tried to reboot it (the monitor settings were off), it didnt boot again.
And then the sd card got corrupted.
So okay, i reformatted the sd card, and decided i would simply install rasbian again.
Except now, after it got to the ''OS installed successfully'', its hung again - blank screen, the green continues to flicker on and off.
1. How do i install raspbian without it hanging? EDIT: okay, apparently it installed raspbian correctly ( i think) though the screen is still off, and im too scared to change it.
2. Whats causing this ''hdmi and usb devices now draws too much power for it to boot", when it used to work perfectly fine before? The power supply it self is raspberry official, so i hope its not causing problems.
