I bought this new from Piper in June 2016 so I’m guessing it is the latest version.
Assembly went fine, the memory card is inserted. Upon power up the LCD comes on for a few seconds then goes black since it received no signal. The red LED on the Pi is on but otherwise there is no sign of life.
Editorial: We are very impressed with the quality and design so far. My 9 year old son had a great time putting it together with minimal help from me. He was all excited to turn it on only to find that it doesn’t work. I’ve worked with Pi’s in other projects and I’m reasonably sure everything is setup correctly so I’m pretty disappointed that this didn’t just work.
