I got a new RPi Zero W :) Fresh installed Raspbian Jessy on a new 16GB SD. All went good, including connection to wifi, and Logitec 2.4GHz mouse and keyboard.

after that- from time to time, screen flickers for about 1s, every 2-3 min. I tried you set a defined screen res - no help. I even set display driver- to No GL ( basic ) - no help

Any ideas what may cause it ?


I had a similar problem but with plain RPi Zero. Turned out to be a power issue. There's also a video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3IHBcIwk-Bo

  • I'll try to replace power source, BUT, I bought also a regular Zero, used the same SD, and it works fine (no flickering). – Guy . D Aug 24 '17 at 20:29
  • The Zero W uses more power than the Zero. Your power supply is probably very close to overloaded with the Zero W. – Craig Aug 24 '17 at 22:24
