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.

The config.txt on the v3 page is correct. I'm certain of it. If you copied it to the SD card and overwrite the one that was already there, then it's something else causing the problem.

Are you plugging the SD card directly into the Pi Zero?
