On a fresh install of Raspbian Jessie I tried to changed the password once in the raspi-config and one time in the UI (2 fresh installs). When I reboot I was never able to get past the log in screen. Not with my new password, nor with the default pi:raspberry credentials.

Any one else noticed this issue? Any fix for this?

I added a new user manually and logged out of the default loggedin user (pi), tried to log in, again "wrong password".

Note: This is on a new Raspberry Pi 2B with a 16GB Sd card.

  • In order to rule out the obvious are the cap locks on? – Steve Robillard Dec 8 '15 at 22:34
  • @SteveRobillard Yes caps lock is of. This is my 4th RPI but the first with Jessie, never had problems on other distro's. – Bram Dec 8 '15 at 23:12

    I am totally serious, i once charged 120 for an in person support visit for the caps lock. – Steve Robillard Dec 8 '15 at 23:17
  • @SteveRobillard Easy money ;) but no idea why this is a problem? Is it just me? – Bram Dec 8 '15 at 23:18
  • What characters etc did you put in your password, and have you tried different passwords? – Wilf Dec 9 '15 at 0:40

I had same problem and I discovered that the issue was because my password have special characters and the default keyboard layout is English(UK), so when I thought I'm typing @ I really is typing ". I changed the keyboard layout to English(US) using raspi-config and changed the password after that, and it worked perfectly. Hope it helps.
