CM3 Troubles - No green light
#1
Hi there! First, want to thank you for the wonderful build instructions & forum. Really made the build process easy on the CM3. 

I am unfortunately having a problem. When I try to turn on the CM3 I get the infamous just white screen. Holding the power down for >10 I also don't get the green light. Seems like most people who have this issue have a green power light indicating a screen problem but I don't. Which leads me to think it's the SD / image or something wrong with the CM3 itself. I have tried a lot of things here:
  • I am using the img linked to from the build guide. Note, I do see the boot drive when I insert into my comp with content (e.g. config.txt)
  • I've even tried old versions of the img (in the archive folder)
  • Tried unzipping before burning
  • On mac - tried both Apple Pi Baker and Etcher
  • Tried multiple SD cards (one 128 gb, one 8 gb)
  • Tried re-seating the CM3
Any thoughts? Would really appreciate any suggestions! Only thing I can think of next step is to try to use a PC to create the SD. Or try a third SD card. 

Pre-thanks for the help!
