Re: Heatsinks

Sorry but my CrowPi didn't come with a fan so I can't help you with this. If no fitting instructions came with your kit then I would suggest contacting elecrow support direct at https://www.elecrow.com/contacts

Re: Heatsinks

According to the Elecrow website at https://www.elecrow.com/heatsink-kit-for-rpi-p-750.html, I assume they go on the chips as shown in the picture below :

Re: Hi everyone !

Hi Steven and welcome to the board ! I am sure you will have lots of fun playing with your new CrowPi. If you want to look at lesson 7 and want to dabble a bit with Python, this shows how to use the temp/humidity sensor on the CrowPi. Any questions or problems getting it to work, please don't hesita...

Re: CrowPi2 - Random appearance of the letters A and I

Sounds like it may be a fault with your keyboard.

Have you tried another keyboard ?

If you have a desktop PC, just plug the keyboard in from that and see what happens. If the random letters still occur, the problem must lie elsewhere.

Re: Faulty screen

Tech support can only suggest a replacement screen and as the CrowPi is now out of guarantee, I would have to buy a new one. Rather than spend money on old tech, it would be better to save up and at some point, buy a new CrowPi 2 instead so this is what I will do. In the meantime, I will continue to...

Re: Hi everyone !

Hi Colin and welcome to the board ! In answer to your question about the IMG file, you need to write this to your SD card. First of all, take the SD card out of your Raspberry Pi and put in into your computer using a suitable adapter if needed. To write the image to the SD card, you can use the Pi i...

Re: Faulty screen

Thanks for the reply. I eventually got a reply from Elecrow tech support which was to just try a different HDMI cable or another Pi/Laptop connected directly to the display. I have done all this and the screen is still faulty so it looks like I need a replacement one. I am loathed to pay out $60 whe...

Re: Faulty screen

Still no luck getting it to work :(

I emailed Elecrow tech support but they haven't answered so it looks like I am stuck with a faulty unit. The web cam works so I am guessing the LCD panel itself is faulty.

Faulty screen

I have just turned my CrowPi on after a few weeks of not being used to be presented with : smallcrowpiscreen.jpg I just get what seems like vertical lines on the display but no picture. I have reseated the HDMI connector on the left of the pi board but it made no difference. Before I start to disman...
