Blank screen after reboot - strange1 - 18th Mar, 2013 02:32 AM


Just bought my second RPI with the code 2011.12. I managed to install xbian however after a couple of reboots it will no longer boot. I've tried two different cards, 4gb transend which came with it from rapid and a 8gb sandisk. Any ideas on how to solve this problem?

Can you try the following:

- Restore a fresh image
- In the fat partition open the config.txt and change core_freq=375 to core_freq=300
- Check if it is fixed now Wink

Also make sure you shutdown the pi properly (In XBMC -> Power menu (button is in the bottom left corner) -> Shutdown -> Wait till only the red LED on your pi burns -> Pull out the power.

Hi, just did a fresh install, ssh'ed into the pi and reduced the clock speed to the minimum. I'll test it as it is. Thanks for the reply.

If I move the RPI to a different TV with HDMI, that has different resolution, will it boot OK?

yes it should be OK on any other TV

Fixed by reducing over clock to lowest setting. Thanks
