No power no LED nothing

Tue Jan 29, 2013 10:38 pm

I have had my raspberry pi for a short while now. I have tested it and everything was working fine. Today i went to turn on the raspberry pi and nothing happened. No power no led indicators nothing. It is the same usb port same chord. I have changed nothing. Does anyone have any idea what is going on?

I had same issue and it was simply a loose SD card. If you hadn't already checked, try reseating it.

Even with a loose SD card the red PWR LED should be lit.

Or the cable. The build quality of some is quite dire.

I tried two separate chords neither worked. Both i have tried previously and both have worked previously. The sd card is secure and in place. I am at a loss. :cry:

You haven't confirmed that the PSU is not dead.

It could also be that the micro usb connector got damaged somehow. They look pretty fragile.
I assume TP1 - TP2 voltage will be 0V :(
