I doubt that is important !ktb wrote:Neat trick. What model camera is it?
To all intents and purposes it was OFF. Red light still showing, but no other signs of life. The screen went into standby so no video output.Burngate wrote:Power-off or just crash? What are the symptoms?
I suggest you get your own PI2 if you want to know the answers to all those questions....
I'm probably teaching grandma to suck eggs but ...
How far away does the camera have to be to not affect the Pi?
Does it still do it in the next room? With the door closed?
How about with the Pi at the other end of the garden, but with the flash pointing at it?
How about powering it from batteries, disconnecting the monitor etc. then setting off the flash. Then plug the monitor and keyboard back in to see what happened.
I do, but I don't have the need for any more pictures of it I don't want to keep "upsetting" it as I'm actually developing code on it right now !jdb wrote:Do you have any blu-tac?
Is this an experiment we can all do? Or does it need some quaint camera/flashgun hardware?jdb wrote:Ok - I've managed to reproduce the problem here, anyway.
Confirmed here too.DougieLawson wrote:Is this an experiment we can all do? Or does it need some quaint camera/flashgun hardware?jdb wrote:Ok - I've managed to reproduce the problem here, anyway.
So, not the SoC then. It must be something else on that side of the board. Should be simple to track down by masking off regions.mikerr wrote:Going back to the Pi 2, I thought it might be the SoC (now it has no RAM on top - the ram is underneath on the Pi 2)
- bluetack over the SoC wasn't enough to save it crashing, nor was a few sheets of A4,
Where is that so we can see if covering stops the XENON DEATH FLASHjdb wrote:Because the blu-tac blob isn't over the single photosensitive IC on the board.
It appears that U16, the SMPS chip, is the culprit.
