R-Pi Troubleshooting

R-Pi Troubleshooting
Back to the Hub. This page lists the most common problems and suggests some solutions. See RPi_Bugs for problems that are bugs. Power / Start-up Note: if you have any kind of booting problems, start off by reading the "Is your Pi not booting? (The Boot Problems Sticky)" in the troubleshooting section of the Official Raspberry PI forum [1]. A good power supply that will supply 5 volts and at least 1 amp (5V 1A) is vital. Note that the Pi has no BIOS, so nothing will be displayed on screen unless the Pi successfully boots! Normal LED status There are five LEDS near the USB connector. See the next sections for how to interpret other statuses. Red power LED does not light, nothing on display The power is not properly connected. Red power LED is blinking A blinking red power LED indicates problems with the power supply. On model B+ (and presumably also the A+), the circuit has been improved to give a much more reliable warning of poor power quality. Start off by reading the "Is your Pi not booting? #! .

Write plugins for XBMC XBMC includes support for writing Add-Ons written in Python. Plugins, unlike scripts, do not generally provide new functionality to XBMC, instead they provide an easy way to present content listings in XBMC through the native GUI interface. Content is usually online audio and video streams like YouTube, Vimeo or podcasts, or pictures from websites such as Flickr or Picasa. Please feel free to add samples of simple plugin functions.

Self-oscillating circuit for 5V power supply - UK Vintage Radio Repair and Restoration Discussion Forum I'm trying to make a circuit using the components of a CFL (HV transistors, ferrite core, HV diodes, HV capacitors, etc) in order to obtain a 5V source to supply a TTL-made timer for a microwave oven. All circuit I have checked use two ferrite cores. I think it is posible to do it using just one core. I need some help with the cicuit configuration (for the self oscilating circuit) and how many turns (approx.) should I coil in the ferrite core. The 5V circuit will demand 500mA.

Raspberry pi loves Sensors and LEDs make sure the tools are installed... to test if the tool are installed run the following command..sudo i2cdetect -y 0 this will scan all devices connected to the I2C bus. it should look like the pic below. if you see that i2ctools are not installed run the following comand sudo apt-get install i2c-tools also install sudo apt-get install python-smbus How to control a Raspberry Pi using WhatsApp Do you use the Raspberry Pi for a headless project, such as a media player, NAS server, seed box or security camera? If you do, then your Raspberry Pi is probably tucked away somewhere that's not that easily accessible. You can always log in to it remotely but how do you monitor it in real time? How do you know whether it's overheating? Or running out of disk space? In this project, we'll play God and make your Raspberry Pi self-aware, and give it the ability to communicate.

How Much Power Does Raspberry Pi3B Use? How Fast Is It Compared To Pi2B? – RasPi.TV The Raspberry Pi 3, launched this week, is more powerful than the Pi2. It also requires a bit more electrical power if you’re going to be hammering those four A53 CPU cores. How much more? RPi Beginners Back to the Hub Getting Started: Buying Guide - for advice on buying the Raspberry Pi. Casting Python integers into signed 32-bit equivalent When implementing bit-twiddling routines in C/C++, one frequently takes for granted the implicit convertibility between signed and unsigned values of the same bit pattern and bitwidth. For example, 0xFFFFFFFF, when cast to a signed 32-bit integer will return -1. In Python however, all integers are signed and when a positive integer exceeds the maximum possible 32-bit signed value, 2147483647, it is automatically promoted to a long, e.g. 2147483648L.

Xming X Server for Windows - Official Website Xming is the leading X Window System Server for Microsoft Windows®. It is fully featured, lean, fast, simple to install and because it is standalone native Windows, easily made portable (not needing a machine-specific installation or access to the Windows registry). Xming is totally secure when used with SSH and optionally includes an enhanced Plink SSH client and a portable PuTTY replacement package. Xming installers include executable code, and libraries, only built by Colin Harrison (Project Xming's chief developer).
