AIY Vision kit Pi zero wont boot, heating up

by Gmcnei02 on Fri Jan 21, 2022 12:38 pm

Hello, I purchased an AIY vision kit and a AIY voice kit on JAN 14th. I assembled the voice kit with no problems, but the vision kit seems to have a faulty Pi zero.

The Pi zero in the vision kit does not turn on, I have tested the SD card and cable in the other Pi zero that I have, and that one works perfectly. The faulty Pi zero just gets hot when plugged in.

Thanks for testing with another Pi Zero. Please contact support@adafruit.com requesting a replacement Pi Zero WH. Include a link to this forum thread and your order# in the e-mail.

Thank you!

Is there a trick to getting the plastic posts out of the pi and the hat that are holding them together?

You should be able to squeeze the top of the plastic posts with a pair of needle nose pliers so they will flatten out. You can then lift the board one corner at a time onto the flattened tip.
