Raspberry Pi Model 3 A+ wont boot

by rdaviss on Sat Feb 16, 2019 2:06 pm

Finally got around to setting up my RasPI3 A+ and everything worked great for a few days. Now it won't boot or show any display. I swapped the board out with all known working hardware (keyboard/mouse/monitor/power adapter/etc.) There are no peripherals connected. And reformated the sd card with the latest "2018-11-13-raspbian-stretch" image. A red light comes on the device but still no display. Any suggestions? Dead board?

What voltages do you see on the 5V and 3.3V GPIO pins?

Also, as a sanity check, plug the SD card into a desktop computer. Does it mount as a small removeable device named BOOT?

I just double checked the card and it mounts successfully on a windows 10 laptop as boot. The

GPIO 1 has 0.0 volts and GPIO 2 has 5.1 volts

That sounds like a failure in the 3.3V regulator.

Did you happen to have anything connected to the RasPi's GPIO header?

Nothing is connected to the GPIO.
