Re: Use a 2.5" LCD from a Blaupunkt Dashcam with Raspberry Pi?

Unless you know the screen model and likely have a datasheet for it you're shit out of luck since no one knows the pinout or what this screen is capable of.

Re: MintyPi V3 start button, whats the test pad

Redo your controls in the Retropie Menu, you might have to use keyboard to get into the menu or use a new fresh image flash. The only way physically Start is not working is if you had a bad soldering connection or had a broken or burned trace on the board from too much heat. Also if you have a sharp...

Re: Need help reading Gameboy pocket button portion of pcb

Thanks for your response Rodocop! I just scratched off some of the PCB to reveal the copper and used the multimeter. I can see now how the traces are laid out, thanks for the advice. I think my next project I'll go with a premade board. And I'm also going to look into returning my teensy and wiring...

Re: White bar at top of screen

Question for the group. I didnt see it anywhere else so if it has already been addressed I appologize. I've been having to consistently reopen up my minty pi for various issues of which I have finally gotten all fixed only to have a new one when putting it back together. There is a white bar (semi ...

Re: Ili9341 screen not working

Sounds like you made a boo boo there, NEVER plug things on when there is power. you likely killed the backlight or the LCD mcu itself. Time for a new LCD I'd say.

Then you might have something shorting the pi itself then, check continuity from GND to the 5v and 3.3v pins to be sure.

Re: [SALE] Retro PSU, a 3.5A Output capable Boost Board

So i figured it out myself, but now the next problem. I just destroyed my retro psu, because the solder pad of EN just came off! So there is no way i can solder a switch to it. Is there any change a trough hole version of the Retro PSU can be sold? because the wires keep coming off the pads, and as...

Re: Spyder's Gameboy Pocket build (Gaboze Pocaio Round 2)

I think you killed it by putting the voltage backwards as you said you has to flip the wiring on the JST so you killed it when you did that. Next time check polarity before wiring things in and if you do want to test it without checking polarity (not a smart move) then be sure the Pi or anything els...
