RPI Zero WH not working

by ShillyWilly on Fri Jul 31, 2020 8:20 pm

I plug it into the official RPi Wall adapter no green light nothing coming across the tv and the same when I connect it to my pc and it isn't recognized by my computer. I've had it less than a week and waited until today to use it because my sd card for it just arrived today. I also have an older rpi zero w that works just fine through the same tests as the other. I was told via email that I can get an authorized replacement this way. cheers

ake sure you are using the latest version of Raspbian and post a picture of the pi. Does the computer see the USB when you plug it in?

Yes I'm using the latest image and the pi doesn't power on at all not is it recognized by my computer. I tested it against a known good rpi zero w and the known good has no problems powering on through the same methods and cords used in the bad one I received. Idk if it makes a difference or not but the rpi I received was I'm an unsealed antistatic bag, that's the only thing that comes to mind other than it just being defective off the line.
