Only red led but boots sometimes

Recommended Posts

I don't understand why it works sometimes then it doesn't.

I check the SD card and openelec is perfectly installed.


This is my second raspberry pi by the way.


I'm using a 2amp Samsung charger..



Is there anyway I can fix this? I feel like it's hardware

Hi there. I am new to Raspberry Pi too and have just joined to answer your question in case I can help. I am still learning but found the same problem the other day. I had tried reinstalling the operating system which didn't work but then bought a new SD card and it worked fine. I could access the old card and could see it had all the files but then noticed it had a bit of trouble sometime being read. Now with the new card it is working faultlessly

Do you have an extension cord with surge protection?  That can help with power supply issues.  Sometimes noise in the mains supply can disrupt a Pi.  I think this is less of a problem with the Pi B+ because of its improved power handling.
