Pi won't boot


#1

I was using SSH and tighvnc to access my Pi and arduberry, and it was working just fine for a while, but when I pressed the reset button on the arduberry, the Pi crashed. Since then, I haven’t been able to get it to boot with the arduberry attached. The Activity light just gets dimmer every time it blinks.
Can someone please help?

Hey,
Does the Pi still boot without the Arduberry? Which image were you using, was it the Dexter Industries image? Does using a fresh image or SD card help.

Yes, it still boots without the Arduberry, and it’s just running the basic Raspbian image. I only have one SD card that I can use for the Pi :confused:

Hey,
Can you try out the Dexter Industries Raspbian image from here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/dexterindustriesraspbianflavor/ and let us know if that helps.

Hey wAllop1, did this work for you?

If you want step by step instructions on installing the image (or re-installing it if you will) you can use this: http://www.dexterindustries.com/howto/raspberry-pi-tutorials/install-raspbian-for-robots-image-on-an-sd-card/

Also, sometimes to troublehshoot, we hook the Pi up to an HDMI monitor to see if there’s a kernel corruptions problem or some other problem. Could you try that? Sometimes just booting once with the monitor on can “heal” an SD Card.
