I have been experiencing an issue with my Argon One M.2 setup. I originally had Home Assistant running on it and it was doing wonderfully for quite some time. It suddenly began to stop responding. I couldn’t access home assistant login at all, so I restarted it and all seemed great. The problem became to get worse as time went on. Sometimes it would literally stop responding while I was directly connected through HDMI. Needing to restart the Pi became more frequent, sometimes only a couple minutes after a restart.
I thought it might be the power and HA, so I moved my Homebridge over to it and brought a new power supple which is a 18 w 5v that is said to work great with Argon One. I stopped seeing power issues afterwards.
But now Homebridge is failing to respond too and I’m forced to reboot. I am now down to isolating 1 of 3 things. If this is the USB connector, which I have just plugged in a new M-M USB 3 cable to see if it persists, but I doubt it is the connector. Problem 2 is that it is my SSD, but I have considered the likelihood that if it was my SSD, then it wouldn’t just stop responding after a couple minutes or an hour and only work again after reboot. Last Problem is a defective Argon One system, which I have found a couple issues with it since buying it, but I was able to live with the issues. My Fan doesn’t work properly with it and it is the Fan that came with it, so I cannot control the temperature.
I was hoping if someone is able to provide some things I can try to confirm if it is indeed my SSD or the Box. Thanks.
