Raspbery 3b+ Wont boot, SD card and Powersuply is fine


#1
  1. I have the official 5.v 2.5amp power suply. https://www.raspberrypi.org/products/raspberry-pi-universal-power-supply/
  2. There is nothing wrong with the 32g SD card, infact i later used it to successfully boot a raspberry 3B.
    i also tried getting a new 15g SD card, same result. :/
  3. The RED light is turned on, but no flashing of the green/yellow leds.

Any ideas suggestion or whatevers?

Just in case … the obvious one … Are you using the very latest NOOBS version 2.8.2 (27-June-2018) or Raspbian Stretch/Lite Kernel 4.14 with the same date.

There have been changes for the 3B+ and older ISO/IMG’s are inappropriate.

What he said, with each new Pi release the boot code has to be undated in Raspbian. If you put that SD card in your 3B and run sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get upgrade it “should” then be bootable in a 3B+.

I have exactly the same problem and i have try latest noobs 2.8.2.

  • The same image can boot in old 3B but not in 3B+.
  • Using 2.5A power supply.

I would try the latest Raspbian (non noobs) image. If it boots its a software NOOBS issue. If it doesn’t its a Pi hardware issue.
