Dead Pi

by KazW on Wed Dec 12, 2012 6:09 am

Hello, I recently got a Pi with a large order I placed, a rev. 2 board. It was fine for ~2 weeks, but today it simply won't boot anymore, when I power it on, there's no SD activity. I tested the SD card in 2 other rev. 1 boards I have, and they both boot the card correctly and as expected. I have kept my Pi in a Pi Box that I made at my local hackerspace on the laser cutter, so it has been well protected. I also haven't hooked anything up to the GPIO pins, although I had been planning a project in the near future and that was my intent.

The only thing that I had done with this Pi was overclock it to the "medium" setting, which from my understanding, does not void the warranty.

Please advise me on what I should do.

P.S. The order # I got the Pi from is 200167.

this is the first time we've had a customer overclock a pi and later report it's not working, we're not sure what to do in this situation yet (we will need to talk to element14 our supplier). for now, can you send an email to support@adafruit.com ?

thanks!

Thanks, I'll do that, here's the link saying that overclocking won't void the warranty: http://www.raspberrypi.org/archives/2008
