Screen turning on and off


#1

Hi just got my hands on the new Pi zero w
But having an issue with my screen getting static red lines and sometimes going blank. Have updated raspian OS but no luck. Also tried different power options If anyone has a solution it would be very helpfull.


#2

It might be worth trying:

config_hdmi_boost=7

In /boot/config.txt

It’s possible it could be a flaky HDMI adaptor or cable.

Thanks heaps hdmi boost did the trick I went to 7 stopped blanking out but still red static lines then went to 10 and fixed it. Appreciate your help.
