OSMC Booting to Black Screen

Girlfriend went to go watch tv shows, hit the “exit” button on the remote and the device froze.

I did a systemctl stop / start mediacenter, did not fix.
Tried to reboot. Also did not fix. Gets to OSMC splash screen, then goes black.


Any suggestions would be appreciated. :slight_smile:

Don’t know what caused the problem, but I did a full system restore and now its working well. The logs didn’t strike me as anything crazy wrong either but I’m not good at reading them.

You may want to consider a new SD card as your current one could be failing.

Funny you should mention that. I’ve been working through a lot of different chips lately (Setting up Home Assistant on a different Pi) and I think I had them crossed at some point. The one I pulled out turned out to be a class 4 card. I found a new class 10 card and did the system restore using that one.

Did anything stand out to you that made you think it was failing, or just a guess based on the problem description?

Just a guess based on the description, and experience :wink:
