Just curious to know if you've tried downloading the OS and reimaging the supplied SD card? We will be shipping you a new card today, but I just wanted to make sure that it is indeed the card and not a problem with the Pi.
It's the SD card. Someone below posted the card wasn't fully pushed in. It's spring loaded. Push all the way in until it locks. Worked instantly for me. WHEW!
Just as a note: The Pi3 does not have a spring, you just push the card in till it doesn't go in any more.
I am having the same problem. The fix never works. The 4 raspberry pi logos text never apears. The screen just stays black but the pi is connected (light is on).
are you seeing lights flash on the Pi?
Have you recently received your Pi? What version is it (see the attached image)
Try to get a new raspberry pi on amazon and put the SD card in the new raspberry pi.
We have the same issue, we have a blue and then black screen.
Paid a lot of money and then it does not work!!!!
Could you try plugging the HDMI cable into a TV or monitor with an HDMI plug to see if it is the screen or the Pi.
It was the hdmi cable, it was not properly plugged in. It works great now
I connected the monitor to the computer. And all good! It is Monitor
read my reply in the other thread.
tried this -- just sits at the screen with 4 raspberry's.any other ideas?
@Teamc99a what idea did you try? This thread is over a year old and has become messy (sigh)
The system is built correctly. The first screen shows 4 raspberrys and some script and then goes blank. Tried restarting it several times. Does not work.
Hi there, I've read over all these options and we still can't get it working ... except I can't get the SD card even out to test it. ....Thoughts?
Lisa, try using a pair of small tweeters -gently - to see if you can get the SD card out
Send me an email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can help reset your SD card. You can always reburn the SD card following these instructions.
My daughter has not been able to play since Christmas due to the same problem. Today, she said "Why don't we hook it up to the TV instead?" And it worked.
I guess the HDMI cable we have is busted. How do we go about getting a replacement?
Send an email to email@example.com to see about getting a replacement.
