If you get/have a SD card reader for your PC/Laptop you can read/write the “boot” FAT 32 area of your SD card (Ignore any “You need to format” prompt as that’s just complaints about the Linux partition) . If you get software, like the Paragon “Linux File System for Windows”, you can even read/write the Linux EXT4 partition.  That allows you to make easy backups of your config files, edit and file you need to modify, etc.

Of additional note, the bios kernel may have become corrupted and need to be re-installed.  See the Raspberry Pi dot org web page about corrupt kernels. 


Good Luck

Hi Gerald,

If the green activity light doesn't blink at all, the memory card may have become corrupted.  The red light should stay on continuously and not blink...if it does, a power supply issue may be the cause.

Hopefully you made a backup of your current card.  If not you may have to get another card or download the image from MFJ.  MFJ may cover the card under them to see.
