I recently got a RPi and when I plug it in both LEDs light up solid without flickering. It also does not show up on the monitor. Everywhere I've looked it says they should be flashing but they aren't. How do i fix this? It's a Raspberry Pi 2 Model B V1.1

  • Which model of Pi?

  • Red power LED should be solid. Green LED solid - never heard of that, sounds like a problem with the SD card.

  • But what could've caused the problem/ how could i fix it. I've been googling for a while and can't find anything May 9, 2015 at 20:13
  • All I can suggest is that you re-image the SD card. Has this Pi ever booted?

I faced a similar issue and the problem ended up being my SD card. I also had no display and the similar red and green light issue.

To rectify, I configured my SD card to Raspbian using Win32DiskImager and it worked. I was using the same Pi as you too.
