Pi goes bust when I connect camera on DSI

Fri Sep 24, 2021 6:58 pm

hi everyone,

I have a Raspberry Pi 3b, I have been playing with that for few years now. I recently bought a camera and in all excitement plugged it into the DSI port. I did have my HDMI cable connected too, when I did this. :oops:

I have been reading around, but I havent found a way out, and still my Pi stays dead.

symptoms:
1. Red LED stays ON, with or without SD card inserted
2. Green LED near power never binks or turns on
3. all chips in cold state
4. All 3.3V and 5V pins are expected voltages.

Is there anything I can do to get my PI up again?

Please help me :( I really wish I dint do this mistake, but I want to get my Pi back to life. :cry:

also, the camera goes on the CSI port

DSI is for displays

Yes, I had it powered ON as well, saw the camera glow it's red LED.
Bad I realised it late that the ports were for different purpose. I haven't done such a silly thing in a while.

Do you have any suggestions please?
May be if I can remove out any parts of DSI or CSI?


I just need a pi to work on other projects, where can I get a deal for used Pis?

you gotta move on...
so let your dead RPi rest
(usually I suggest putting it in as glass picture frame and hang it on a well lighted wall in your shed/shop) ;)

get a new one.... but don't forget past (critical/fatal) mistake(s)
