Raspberry Pi 3 Model A not booting up

I just bought a brand new Pi3Model A, and it won’t boot up. It’s hooked up to a 5.2V power adapter, yet nothing shows on the HDMI output it’s connected to. There’s a red light on for PWR on the board, but the green ACT never turns on.

What gives?

try an official power supply the voltage may be the problem really there a 5 volt device…the extra point one of a volt is just over head to cover cable length losses…make shure your media is verified…you may also need to re-flash your sd-card,??..do you have an sd-card …?

my advice first drop the voltage to 5.1 volt…

HDMI issues generally make shore that the rpi is the only device hooked to the screen…
