Raspberry pi 3 & dietpi crashing

Post by shlagwuk »

Hello,
My raspberry pi 3 keep crashing (once a day). It only has Kodi and NZBGet running, so not a lot of heavy apps :D
Is there an error log anywhere I can check?
Below, the last thing on screen. Some time, the screen is black… :|

Thanks,

First thing is to ensure you have an adequate power supply - 2.0 amp or better, and if using a phone charger, a decent cable . I you have this then try again with a different SD card.

I have the official raspberry pi power supply so I guess it should be OK (but sometime I have the red/yellow square on the screen top right corner). I will try with a different card, can I just clone the actual SD card and burn it on another?

Kernel 4.1.19 indicates old image/installation. 4.4.21> is current in apt-get upgrade

shlagwuk,

How long has this installation and RPi been active, and, any known power cuts in your area?
If you find our project or support useful, then we’d really appreciate it if you’d consider contributing to the project however you can.

It's been active for at least a few months, I don't know precisely. And no power cut. It's also up to date :)

I checked on another dietpi running with kernel 4.1.14-v7+, so I guess I will have to update boths kernels :D

If the square looks like this: https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/view ... 3e#p692004 then it would be a power issue.

If the square is solid Yellow or Red, it indicates the ARM temperature is around 80'c and the ARM is being throttled down to prevent damage. RPi 3 suffers with this, solution is a heatsink or case-sink: https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/view ... 4#p1056034

Thanks, I fixed my problem by installing a fresh dietpi on another SD card, and I moved my downloads folder on an additional sd card :)
It's working so far… fingers crossed ;)
