Re: PI ZERO SP BUILD LOG

Sempi, any updates on this build? Would love to hear how progress is going! I just got an SP case and ordered an Adafruit 1601 tft LCD, not sure what the best options for screens are besides that. I have a BW from Amazon and it's way too large and would require tons of case mod to the point of remov...

Retro NES cover art

Game cover art should inspire you. When I look over my collection of games and decide what to play, I'm looking for a game cover to speak to me and get me into the game, draw me in to play it. :shock: Besides using a consistent format, my favorite NES game covers use pixelated art from the game its...

I found out if you held the ribbon down were it folds near the connector the display comes back.
I would love to see a photo! I've tried this multiple times with my hands pressing down and moving the cables and wires, and while I have pretty good eyes, I can't detect any changes. :shock:

At best, I describe the noise as two types of visual disturbance: A) a moving and lightly colored static , it *seems* like jiggling a cable would fix it, but doesn't, it's noticeable on black screens especially and B) a refresh-rate type...
