How to tell if your pi-top [3] Hub is working

Here's a simple guide on how your pi-top [3] Hub works and simple checks you can make to ensure it's correctly installed.

A Static green LED light on the Hub confirms power is passing through correctly and has a good connection with the Raspberry Pi and Cooling Bridge.

If you have a flashing or static red LED light on the Hub, check you have the Cooling Bridge correctly attached and aligned to both the Raspberry Pi pins and Hub.

 

Take a look at the Getting Started Guide to check your pi-top [3] build.

 

Further checks you can make:

  1. The microSD card has been inserted correctly into the Raspberry Pi and has the latest pi-top Operating System installed.
  2. The Power Supply Unit has been fully inserted into the back of the pi-top [3] unit.
  3. The Cooling Bridge has the correct Thermal Pad attached to the Heat sink and has a good connection with the Raspberry Pi pins and Hub.
