    Pi player - got the temperature warning at 48 degrees

    This is my new player built on a 3B+ with digi hat in the new Smartipi Pro case I posted about recently. It's running pcp 7.
    I installed the fan and it feels cold to the touch but I have the yellow temperature warning sign on all the time.

    It even spontaneously rebooted yesterday. (which log should I look I?)

    The diagnostics page says 47 degrees centigrade..

    Anyone got any ideas?

    What does this temperature warning look like? Are you sure it isn't an undervoltage warning?

    Darn, you are right.

    That's odd, it's an official supply 5v 2.5a.
    Maybe I swap with one of my pi4 supplies and see what happens

    They are USB-C so they won't fit. What do you have plugged into the Pi?

    Tiny case fan

    It was fine before I changed to the new Touch pro case. I did see it a bit before adding the fan

    Looks like the case has a USB-C input connector Sona Pi4 supply would fit. Which power supply are you using? I thought the Pi3 supply had the older micro USB connector.
    Check the internal power leads of the case, maybe they are loose.

    Yeah it's a stontronics pi3 supply. I have an adapter and a switch In line from the psu.

    I will wiggle everything. Thanks for the ideas

    (it's behaved for an hour now...)

    The switch and the adaptor will both drop the voltage as well. A Pi4 supply without the adaptor would be better.

    FYI: An undervoltage log was added to pCP7.0.0.

    Click [Main Page] > [Diagnostics] > [Logs] select "undervoltage" then click [Show].

    Is 48 degrees anything to worry about? Mine regularly hovers around that mark, I thought around 50 was normal.
