Just tried to set up my first Pi (a Zero) today. I waited three weeks to the day to get it and was super excited, but…
No matter what cable I use, I can’t get a picture out of the thing. I am using a Sandisk 32GB MicroSD formatted using SDFormatter and with NOOBS unzipped onto it as per the instructions.
I hoped it was the adapter Pimoroni sent, but I bought a miniHDMI to HDMI cable and it doesn’t work either. I noticed even before I ever tried to boot it that the miniHDMI connector was crooked (looking from the side) on the board, which really bothers me.
The Zero is recognized (though it doesn’t install) when connected to a PC, and the indicator light would seem to indicate that it is booting up as it comes on and flickers a little before becoming stable.
Can anyone provide any more troubleshooting steps? Or is this thing DOA? Am I going to have to wait another three weeks for a replacement? :(
