Pi zero W heats up very quickly

by ViralPanchal on Mon Sep 20, 2021 12:29 am

I received a pi zero w (invoice # 2658198) but It does not boot. Also, it heats up too much in very little time when it is powered.

How are you powering the Pi? What all is attached to the Pi while powering?

I don’t have any electronics to connect yet. I am powering it using a cable.
I’ve used a 8gb micro SD card with raspbian in it to start working. I doubt SD card might be faulty because I tried it in my laptop it is working fine.

Power bank.
Trying to set up headless. So I can use Pi wirelessly.

Power bank.

Please post a photo showing how you are attaching this power back to the Pi.
