Re: [PRE-ORDER] Circuit Sword, Circuit Sword Lite + Circuit Gem - CLOSED

Sorry man, I'm not risking this boards life without double checking here :D On the analog volume back board there is 3 plugs: On top "SWITCHES" 3 of the wires are labelled L1, L2, GND. On bottom "AUX_R" labelled R1, R2, GND. So I guess I solder R1, GND and L1, GND to the rear buttons board holes if...

Re: Power Switch not working and not booting

If you unplug the 3pin cable that goes to the power button, and instead use the little button on the main board to turn it on (you'll need to HOLD the power button for it to boot) does it behave correctly? If so then let me know and I can send you out a new switch board thing (as there is likely a b...

Re: [PRE-ORDER] Circuit Sword, Circuit Sword Lite + Circuit Gem - CLOSED

So, having just run through the wiki of "How to set up the Circuit Sword" https://github.com/kiteretro/Circuit-Sword/wiki/How-to-set-up-the-Circuit-Sword I'm a bit baffled about the number of extra wires and unused sockets on the board... Is the wiki not enough to get everything working, or where s...

Re: Circuit Gem buttons problem!

The other side of the button needs to go to GND, which is any GND point on the board :)

Re: [PRE-ORDER] Circuit Sword, Circuit Sword Lite + Circuit Gem - CLOSED

Can I just check, was the expectation that all non-lite orders would be filled with CM3+ modules? I'm not massively concerned one way or another but did notice that my kit arrived with a CM3 rather than a plus. Just want to make sure that's not an error! Yeah so the 'discounted' orders will be for ...

Re: stuck keyboard input

Yeah flux + reflow is fine, I assume that is what you have done? Does it now show this same behaviour when on and you use the input?

You can also have it powered on and read the voltage of the button pads, it should read 3.3v

Re: stuck keyboard input

Ok cool, right so the pull up resistor on that pad is not soldered correctly. In the picture below the BRIGHT red parts of the picture are the traces for the DOWN button. You can see that it enter the IC but is also connected to the resistor network "RN4" (this is 4x individual resistors all package...

Re: stuck keyboard input

with it powered off, could you measure with a multimeter the resistance of the PCB contacts? If you look carefully you can see that the fingers of the PCB contacts are in two halves, get one probe on one side and the other on the other. The expectation is that it reads as 100k ohms, so that's the ki...

Try editing the /boot/config.txt and lower down the pixel frequency to 64 instead of 96:

hdmi_timings=320 1 20 30 38 240 1 4 3 10 0 0 0 60 0 6400000 1

See if that helps, otherwise it might be a USB sound type thing as it will sync the speed to sound. There may be some configuration for that.
