I recently got my hands on an older pi (Model 3B), that I had left at my mom’s house some time ago. When I went to start it, it wouldn’t boot. The red light came on but the screen remained black.
I tried swapping the SD card with another one with NOOBS pre-loaded and the Pi worked fine, so I know there’s nothing wrong with the machine.
After some searching, it seems this is a common problem, where a raspberry pi could corrupt its SD card over some time.
