You need a power supply with more current (higher amps). Preferably one with a short, thick cable.

I use the 5.25V 2.4A PS that my local shop sells for the Pi, and it is barely enough for the Tinker. I have to use an external powered USB hub even for things like keyboards.

The real problem is that the Tinker draws more power than USB is designed for. Ideally you would rig a 3A+ power supply to the gpio power pins, but that's a pain because you need to be sure you are delivering exactly 5V. There is more info somewhere in these forums.

Try the lubuntu image v3 provided by
Elar-systems.com. It I very stable and does not crash.

Also make sure you are using a good micro USB cable

Try a different light bulb, maybe the old fashioned type.
If it's led or fluorescent, it will have a complicated driver circuit .

But it should not be doing that
