raspberry pi zero w power diode doesn't light up

by vano on Sun Dec 10, 2017 11:40 pm

The power diode on my raspberry pi zero w stopped went off after a few times I plugged in the pi. The pi itself seem to partially work (see wifi issue post viewtopic.php?f=45&t=127797) but I can no longer see any indicator that shows whether the power is supplied. Can this be fixed? Or can I replace the pi as it's been less than 30 days since I purchased it?
Here is the image with pi plugged in and booted:

Reformatting SD card and installing latest RASPBIAN solved the issue.
