Led & Wifi on raspberry pi zero w don't work

Thu Jun 08, 2023 1:10 pm

I recently bought a raspberry pi zero w, after writing the system to the sd card and after inserting it into the raspberry, after turning it on a led should light up and also create a wifi network where I can connect to be able to control the raspberry, but neither the LED nor the wifi lights up.

Ho comprato di recente una raspberry pi zero w, dopo aver scritto il sistema nella scheda sd e dopo averla inserita nella raspberry, dopo averla accesa dovrebbe accendersi un led e inoltre creare una rete wifi dove io mi collegare possa per poter comandare la raspberry, ma non si accende ne il led tantomeno il wifi.

Without knowing a lot more there's little that we can do...

Have you tried a basic Raspberry Pi image to see if the Pi will boot with a 'normal' image? With this being a Zero I would test the lite image from - use the imager and set a user up using the tools (cog).

The things would help are:
  1. Where did the image come from?
  2. How did you create the image?
  3. Do you see anything on the screen?
Forgive me - my Italian is none existent but you may get some help from the Italian section viewforum.php?f=79

The Raspberry Pi Zero W takes a long time to boot after starting the computer for the first time. Check your power supply to see if the computer has enough power for the computer, and USB peripherals. I recommend a 5V2A power supply for the Raspberry Pi Zero W.
