Getting "Aww snap* screen after some days on 4.1

Fri May 22, 2020 9:55 pm

Ever since upgrading to 4.1 I've noticed I get a the Chrome Aww snap screen after about a week of being on. I reboot and it works again but after 5-7 days I get it again.

This never happened before 4.1.

Any idea on this issue? Is there a log file we can post or something?

Hi, I'm having the same issue but for me it's more like 28min working then SNAP! or 33min or 1h, it's very random. I changed the gpu_mem to 128 and it didn't help. Any other advice?

I'm having the same thing, even wiping the SD card and re-imaging brings the same issue back.

Hi, so I solved the problem by buying a new RPi 4 :) I had a 3b+ before

I did try switching to a Pi4. It worked awesome for a little while then started doing the same thing. The length of time before it would "snap" varied. Sometimes it would be in 20 minutes and sometimes it would take hours.

I can't say for sure, but it seems like it would start happening in both cases (Pi3 & Pi4) after I changed some settings like what the default view was. I use Plex and until I changed that it seems like it would be stable.

I have had mine off for at least a week. I just didn't have time to mess with it. Hoping for an answer.....

I left it on for like 6h yesterday and it worked flawlessly. As I turn it off everyday and leave it on for only a few h (when I'm home during the day), hopefully it will work many years from now on :D :D :D
