Burnt pi?

Post by Sushi » Sun May 20, 2018 3:05 pm

My MintyPi is entirely complete, but the Pi stopped booting last night. I suspected it was the SD card, so I replaced it and it worked for another boot. Again, it stopped booting. This time, I disassembled it and did a continuity check. I noticed that the SD card was extremely hot. I haven't tried another SD card yet, but I'm wondering if I'll just have to replace the Pi at this point. Any thoughts? Either my Pi is eating SD cards or the SD cards are two-for-two bad.

Check the voltage at the SD card slot, it might have a bad regulator and is sending the wrong voltage to the SD card and likely the LCD too.
