Raspberry Pi3 - Stuck on Rainbow Screen


I recently bought two Raspberry Pi 3’s and having trouble with one of them.

It will not boot up past the ‘rainbow’ screen.

I have swapped over all the pieces from the Pi that is working (SD Card, HDMI, Power supply, TV) but cannot get it to work.
Had a look at the SD card pins to see if there was any broken, but they looked okay to me.

What else can I try?

Hey, @Briggzee. Verifying the SD card has a valid image was a great start. It sounds like there could be something wrong with the Pi hardware.

If you’ve purchased the Pi from Core Electronics then reply to your order confirmation email, with a link to this forum topic and we’ll be in touch.

Thanks @Michael_R, I will do that. :slight_smile:
