Our Piper is stopping at the command window during reboot. The cursor prompt keeps blinking but the system never boots. We tried powering it down but I don’t have a wired keyboard so can’t type anything into the command window. Any suggestions?
- was piper working previously?
- if so, what did you do that caused it
Don’t you know anyone that you could borrow a keyboard from?
my piper won’t start up either and even with a USB key board it won’t let me type any thing do you think it’s because the USB is broken,
First make sure the SD card is pushed all the way into the slot. If it is not connected the Pi will not start.
next, when you turn it on, look at the Pi and see if you see a red and green led - the green one should flash.
If the green led is flashing, does anything on the screen show up? if so take a ohoto of the screen when it stops and accach it to a reply.
Red light stays on. Green light flashes.
On the screen it’s dark with a flashing cursor (underscore) at top left.
With USB keyboard can’t type anything.
Don’t know what to do!
click on the users name and an option will come up.
If you see a flashing cursor on the screen, my guess is the SD card is corrupted.
- Was this piper ever working?
- If so, did someone just poweroff the Pi without doing a shutdown?
