StereoPi (CM3+ Lite) stopped working - LED blinks

Post by WaldoPepper »

Hi,

after a short while, my brand new StereoPi V0.9 with CM3+ Lite stopped working.

I was still on the SLP image (two PiCam V2, worked great) when at some point it just froze.

I tried to reboot, but it would not come up again. Onstead, the LED closest to the "USB Slave" jumper stayed on for some seconds after boot and then starts blinking (goes dark 4 times in a row at ca. 4Hz, than stays solid for about 2 seconds, then repeats)

I burned new images, tried several SD cards, changed the power supply, snapped in-and-out the CM....... still not booting (HDMI stays dark btw)

Any suggestions? I would appreciate any input...

Regards

Kai

Hello Kai,
Could you please try to use another power source with your board?
By the way, what power source are you using to feed your StereoPi?

I use the power cable supplied with the board (no Micro-USB involved here) and tried a variety of 5V power supplies, to no avail....

BTW: unfortunately the link "What StereoPi LEDs means" is dead ;-)

Hi WaldoPepper,
I see you did a lot of troubleshooting, and already excluded all obvious issues (like bad micro SD, wrong power source, bad CM3+ connection, etc.). Let me suggest you a replacement. I wrote you an email, please answer. :-)
