HI Joe,

Have you followed the steps in our Raspberry Pi Online Course? A solid red indicates that the board is powered and a flashing orange usually indicates that the board is working. Is it flashing in a specific pattern? Check the settings on the monitor you are using?

Lets see if any of that is the issue!
