I am new to the Raspberry Pi scene, so please excuse me if my question is trivial.
I have hooked up my Pi 3 model B.
Using the supplied SD the Pi starts up and displays the desktop.
I have carefully followed the steps to create a bootable SD card, downloading the RPiCCLV_1_0_2.img.zip and using Etcher to ‘burn’ the SD card.
When the card inserted into the Pi and powered up the display is completely blank.
If I ping the Pi it is detected OK.
If I run the compiler, it appears to function correctly and compiles then downloads the vi, although the display is still blank.
When I power off and replace the SD card with the original, the desktop display returns.
I have tried another SD card and win32diskmanager, to no avail.

I haven’t seen this issue before from other users. However, I did do a quick Google search on the topic and it is something that may happen to some Pis on occasion. I have found this link that may prove useful:
However, I did see others popup that looked promising as well.
Hope this helps.

Hi Thanks for the reply.
The Hdmi works fine with my original SD card and does not work with the RPiCCLV_1_0_2.img but I can still ping the card so it appears to be alive.
Is there an earlier version of the RPiCCLV, or can I load the files with my working SD card?

The issue is most likely in the config file for your HDMI settings. The fact you can ping it means the OS is alive and working, but its settings related to your HDMI are not correct. This is probably related to the specifics of your setup (monitor, power supply, etc). I would research the forums to learn where to change things as opposed to start blindly overwriting files as that can have unintended consequences. Linux is a beautiful OS due to its flexibility and openness to the user at the same time that Linux is an horrible OS due to its flexibility and openness to the user. Unfortunately, we don’t have a stable earlier image you could download, and frankly, even with that it would be guaranteed to work with your setup. Unfortunately, I don’t think there will be an easy button for this and I am afraid you will have to dig into it and learn where in the file to change things. Luckily, there seems to be plenty of forum posts about this on the general RasPi community.February 21, 2018 at 7:12 am #2039
This is now resolved, I swapped the monitor for one with a higher resolution and the desktop appeared.
Test vi running on the Pi so all is good.
Thanks for your help.
