Pi2b+ works but shows rainbow screen

  • Hi!


    I read only about newly installed an not booting similar issues. I am using my rpi 2b+ for a looong time and it suddenly shows only rainbow screen. Its working otherwise, connecting to the wifi etc. I can connect to it trough kore/yatse and hear even the sound of the video playing from phone to it. But all i can see are colored vertical lines. I am using genuine rpi charger.

  • It's quite possible that the SD card in the RPi in the long run has gotten some form of corruption, which makes the OS unstable.


    If you still can make backup of the important data files, then do this first.

    Then, try rewriting the SD card with a fresh copy of LibreELEC.

    If the rainbow screen persists, try a different SD card.
