My PI won't boot any more. PWR is bright-red, ACT is very (and I mean very) dim green. I'm assuming that is because it thinks there's no sd card in there. Could this be right? And if so, what could I do best?
I suck at soldering, don't have the proper tools, and would therefore prefer a software hack over having to solder the two points together. I have considered just dropping some soldering tin on top of the sd-card slot so that it would touch both plates, don't know if that'll work though.
And, as I plug it into my usb-hub, I suddenly notice that my mouse doesn't react any more, and headset fails. This makes me assume there's a short somewhere. I'm assuming this means it's ready for the bin, so I might as well completely wreck it attempting to fix it.
What could I still do to attempt bringing it back to life? What are points I could check for short-circuits? I've got a multimeter here to measure it through where needed.
