Hi

I have the problem that my raspberry is always restarts, when i don't expect it to do.

There are two scenarios, USB powered and not powered.

Powered:

5 minutes after entering sudo halt on the raspberry, it is rebooted. The SYS LED is always on until shortly before rebooting, when it starts flashing.

Disabling the POGO pin connection prevents the rebooting.

 

Not powered:

After unplugging the USB the raspberry is correctly shut down after 1min. However 10s after all LEDs  are off, the red LED on the raspberry turns on and the raspberry is booted. After 1min the raspberry is then shut down again. So we are now stuck in a loop of shutdown & restart powered only by the battery.

Disabling the POGO pin has no effect.

 

In both cases i2cget -y 1 0x69 0x22 w return 0x0033.

Firmware: 133 (same behaviour with 12A, but not tested in depth)

RPi: 3 model V Rev 1.2

PICO: PCB version: 0x41 model: B Stack

tested with both battery types: PIco LiPO 1000mAh & PIco LiPO 450mAh

 

A second PICO (same but not updated) with the same raspberry & battery runs without these reboots.

 

I tried to UR + B for default start and uploading new (133->12A->133) firmware but no success.

Any ideas where the problem could be?

 

Best Regards

Rondo

I did notice the first situation happening on running system when there was no UPS pico software installed to send i2c updates to the daemon, which made installing a new system a bit annoying (I had to isolate the pogo pins, set up everything and then remove the isolation) as it restarted every few minutes on its own.

 

It's *actually* kinda useful feature if something goes wrong (say booting off the network failed from some reason) so maybe it just should be opt-in behaviour behind some registry flag ? I know there is already the watchdog registry but if system doesn't boot properly there is no chance to set it.

So for example one register to set "please reboot rPi after X minutes if there is no signal from the daemon" (and 0x00 to disable that behavior) and second register for rPi to say to UPS "hey, I got power off command, please power me off instead of rebooting when you lose communication"
