my StellarMate will no longer make a connection to my wifi network, and I can't see it in the list of wifi devices to connect to ??

any ideas, I tried restarting my apple router and no change.

Which model rpi is it...as the older ones only wil connect to 2.4ghz connections, whereas most modern routers have a 5ghz connection too....? So make sure you have the 2.4ghz connection enabled on the router...
Just a thought.. :)

Why don’t you connect it to a tv or monitor via hdmi to see what it is doing?

I strongly second this...
In my case the RPi was stuck in emergency mode after power loss and some minor filesystem corruption.

If for any reason you're not able to connect it to a monitor, but have an USB-keyboard at hand try Ctrl&D some time after starting the RPi - you may be lucky...

But as said before - connect it to a screen and have a look.

Cheers & CS

the new version seems to have worked. the quick hash file would not open on mac os mojave, but it did require the etcher to install to the sd card for it to boot up.

did I do something wrong to cause it to not want to boot up. does it matter if you just cut the power to the pi, or should I shut it down before cutting the power to it ??

@suvowner
Debian is very nitpicky about cutting the power without shutting down the OS.
As in my case the file system tends to get corrupted quite easily.

So always(!) make sure the OS is shut down correctly before powering down your RPi.
