Im not sure how or why this happened. Yesterday this pi worked fine. Today, it doesn't. I hadn't done or changed anything so I have to assume it's bricked. With an SD Card Inserted and power on: Green LED flickers 1 time and stays off afterwards Red LED stays on solid With the SD Card Removed and powered on: Same Further Investigation:

Fresh SD Card ✅

Fresh Raspberry Pi OS ✅

3.3V ✅

5V ✅

Temperature - It does not get hot while sitting powered up, max temp is 30C in an ambient of 22C ✅

Recovery on Bootloader ✅

What else can I do or is it officially bricked somehow?

  • What do you see WITHOUT a SD Card?

  • @Milliways As it says in the OP, the behavior is identical. Red light on, green light flickers on once immediately after power on then remains off.

  • What (if anything) is displayed on the screen?

  • Nothing. Screen is backlit, no content - as expected because its not booting at all. No rainbows, no raspberrys, no text, nothing.
