Re: GBZ screen won't power from battery with powerboost

Or you wired the battery directly to the powerboost’s output? 😊

Re: GBZ screen won't power from battery with powerboost

Do you have any pictures of your wiring and soldering. Wire the pi/screen to the 5V and GND pads. (you said you wired it to the EN pin which does not make sense to me.)

Re: GBZ screen won't power from battery with powerboost

Do you have a spare battery to test? Make sure it’s fully charged or charged enough. If the issue persist then check the wiring from the battery. Check also the voltage output of the powerboost while the battery is plugged. It should be around 5v.

Is it for a pi zero or pi3 build?

Re: Safe Shutdown Schematic, Help!

You need a mosfet with logic level gate. :) Something like a IRF510 or IRF520.

Re: rear pcb burn

Can you post some pictures so we can better help you? GNDs, no matter where you connect to them for your L and R are all the same.

Re: Retro pie image wont boot??

Do you have any activity on the ACT LED on the Pi Zero? Are you using a composite screen or HDMI screen?

Re: Mushy buttons and input lag

Clean the contact pads on the pcb board. If the issue persists then try another silicon pads like VeteranGamer has mentioned. Also make sure the screws are not too tight.

Re: Pi3a+ no wifi

Was it working before the build? Try rebooting your wifi router. Otherwise, try a new installation/sdcard.

Re: Qi charger getting seriously hot

Thanks for the suggestion, that could really be the case since I've been using a 2.0A rated charger. I also noticed that it wasn't the coil but the Qi PCB that got hot. Would you suggest going lower than 1.0A? Yes it’s the charging base and not the coil. I’m just using a 500ma power adapter. You ca...
