DXMini Not Shutting Down

Post by KB0OXD » Wed Oct 02, 2019 11:58 am

Maybe I've already addressed this issue here but since I can't find it, I'll repeat it (apologies in advance if this has been addressed)

I'm running a DXMini Hotspot but whenever I go yp shut it down, I wind up having to COMPLETELY PULL THE PLUG because although Pi Star may shut down, the DXMini display is ON & STILL RUNNING (This is AFTER the recommended 30-45 seconds wait time for the shut down command to actually reach & be processed by the Hotspot & the display to go blank (Which afterall is the idea of shutting down the Hotspot)

BTW...The version I have is 3.4.17 (Kernel - 4.9.35+) Pi Zero W Rev 1.1

Any ideas as to how this can be fixed??

The R-Pi shutdown basically shuts down the OS -- it doesn't turn off power (hence the red LED staying on). It is possible (I'm not familiar with the specific hardware) that your board is drawing power from an always-on pin.

This was answered in your other thread.

To find your own posts, in the upper right corner of the forum page there is a hamburger menu(3 horizontal bars) click on quick links and then select "your posts".

You can also determine if you have contributed to a thread by the star in the upper right of the icon on the very left of a post title.
