Hi there

Love the project and i'm close to completing. I am having an issue where I can power the unit and see the green led for 5 seconds before losing power.

I put my multi on the lcd + and - and see 5 volts for the 5 seconds. I can't put my finger on it.

Any help would be great, if i find the answer i'll be sure to post it here in case someone else gets this issue.

Cheers

I should add, this also happens when plugged in.

I had this when I had put it all together and gave it a test. I needed to copy on the config.txt files and run the bash scripts. I think the unconfigured gpio pins are telling the pi to shut back down.
