Re: Helders custom PCB

Talking about the mintyPi v3? If do no one has spares to sell but I will have kits available once I ship the kits out so you won't have to wait for another pre-order. Yo I can get one a week or 2 after pre-orders start to ship.

Re: Battery/power board issues

So I checked all three. My battery was fine. I had to reflow my 5V because that wasn’t connected properly. I still had issues, so I checked my connectors and I’m guessing I had put the connector in the board crooked one time because one of the pins is bent. I’m trying to bend it back into place, bu...

Re: V3 screen issues. How to fix them!

Hey there, So I've been getting the white screen myself and been skimming through the forums for troubleshooting and what have you. So far I have checked my soldering job (my first time soldering mind you) twice with the multimeter and all the continuity checks out. I tried reflashing my SD card to...

Re: Minty Pi won't turn on with Battery

We discussed this on the Discord server, but looks like the 5V gpio is NOT properly soldered to the pcb and without that there is no turning the Pi on.

Re: Introducing - GBA SP Zero

Just so everyone knows I took him up on the offer and when time permits I will work on this project. Although the LCD seems to be SPI I will try to get it working as DPI in the end build.

Re: Minty Pi v.3 Audio

That's an ok temp as long as you don't hold it on a pad for too long. Now did you test that exposed trace with the solder you added to GND as I mentioned to see if it's grounded?

Re: button board and pi not powering

I have a thought how about some pictures of your soldering? As dryja123 has mentioned it is likely a short on the power rail or very very likely the GND GPIO is not a solid connection since it requires some extra heat. Did you test continuity properly to all GPIO with a multimeter?

Re: Battery/power board issues

No and no. No power from Power PCB is always the same answers. 1. 5V is not soldered properly (check the wiki or some other threads here for an image with 5v test points) 2. you forcefully inserted the black cable upside down and bent pins in the connector on the pcb (not the cable itself) 3. batter...
