Good day,

I'm new to Raspberry Pi. I have been using this Raspberry Pi 4 for about six months now. Lately, it starts acting up. Every time I turn it on it only shows the Raspberry Pi splash page logo and restart. The red LED is on and the green LED blinks erratically, but no display. I have tried replacing the microSD card with a fresh install of a new Raspbian OS, and replaced the PSU but to no avail. I can still SSH and VNC into the raspberry if its connected to my network.

What could be the problem? Please help.

Thanks.

Are you cooling it at all?
It could be that it works fine but as soon as it has to do something difficult. like load in the desktop, it overheats and shuts off to protect itself.
Thanks for the reply. It does not shut down though. It does boot, in fact I can SSH and VNC on it. Just no display. Tried connecting it to other display monitors and LED TV but to no avail.

I have it connected to my TV with Kodi on it. I didn't have that issue before.
I had the cooler on it https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07ZV1LLWK/ref=ppx_od_dt_b_asin_title_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1
and somehow, i had the RemotePi board install, at that time, i had a ausb-c power cable on it. i did noticed when watching one of my mp4, the video freezes, and that when i needed the right power cable https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07TYQRXTK/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
That cleared up. So now that i had updated the looks of the Pi 4 for a https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09R6TZCQ8?psc=1&ref=ppx_yo2ov_dt_b_product_details case like this.
The case cam with heatsink with dual fans and the LED RGB board, i then reconnected the RemotePi board, i reconnected the usb drive and that when the mp4 video and audio wasn't playing smoothly. so it's the dual fans or LED RGB board that causing problems.

That happened to me once and I couldn't figure it out.
So, I just used the other HDMI port of the RPi and everything is fine since.
Just a shot in the dark, but it might work for you too :D
