enter image description here I just setup my RetroPie and tested out a game. I then shut it off using the power button. When I tried starting it up again it doesn’t go past this screen. I unplugged it for an hour and tried again but no luck. How can I get it to work again?

    You should always shutdown your Pi not just turn the power off. – CoderMike Feb 11 at 7:18

I think there was an issue with my sad card. Tried another one and had no issues.

  • Try reflashing your sad card. – Thorbjørn Ravn Andersen Feb 11 at 15:14

    I don't believe it's a problem with the SD Card. You should never just power off the RasPi. That may result in a kernel corruption as you see because it has no chance to close its open files. Always do a proper shutdown of the operating system by calling its poweroff functions before switching off the power. – Ingo Mar 13 at 16:17

You have a kernel panic, which means that the kernel encounters something unrecoverable so it stops there and stay there.

You can turn it off at such a kernel Panic and turn it on again after a few seconds. If nothing is corrupted it should come up properly. If not, try another SD-card.

  • Downvoted? Care to say why? – Thorbjørn Ravn Andersen Feb 11 at 12:06
  • You have to ask the "downvoter" but he doesn't see your comment. You have to address him with @downvoter. You see the problem to get an answer? – Ingo Feb 11 at 22:01
