My Pi isn't booting, it was working just a day ago and i didn't change anything, the only thing i did multiple times is cut the supply power to reboot it to see why is my LCD screen is not working while i was trying to fix it. Now is not booting, no green light and no signal found on the spare monitor i use it on. The SD card is the same, nothing changed. I tried leaving it on for some time but nothing happened.

  • It is possible the SD card became corrupt when you cut power to it. You may need to re-image the card and see if that helps. Or try a new card with a fresh image to see if thats the problem.

  • So I lost all the data? Feb 28 '19 at 17:26
  • If you didnt have your code/data backed up AND this is what happened then yes, probably lost it all. But I would confirm that this is the problem by using a new card with fresh image. You can also try mounting the existing card in another machine and see if you can get your data off of it.

    couple side notes.... Should always try and shutdown the pi correctly before yanking power from it. And you should use git or other methods to back up code/data.
