Re: Led Screen not working

I don't quite understand what you're saying and maybe some pictures of the wiring will help us understand better.

Re: Pretty sketchy mintyPi kit on eBay

I see ckliang has copied the v2 mintyPi's layout and is asking over double my price and even copied HoolyHoo's battery monitor script as well. You can buy his copies if you want to but the v3 is not too far off and will be less money than his clones with tons of features I'm sure he's bound to try t...

Re: MintyPi Won't Power On

When powered from the battery make sure there is voltage at the Pi 5v GPIO which is labeled on the mintyPi pcb. If there isn't that might not be soldered well to the pcb.

Charge and play will work as long as the charger has 2A or more output so it can power the battery and the Pi.

Re: Alternatives to Helder's PCB (Confused Beginner)

I also have a few spare blank mintyPi v2 boards left. What does this mean by being blank if your wondering? It means it's everything but the battery monitor chip and LCD are included, the LCD you can get cheaply on ebay and battery monitor is not necessary to build one of these. Hi Helder, Thanks f...

Re: Need help figuring out new 5v screen mod

Probe aroun the 1117H pins for 5v (be sure to power the board with 12v). Check the I pin chips as well, one is likely an eeprom chip but the other could be out putting 5v.

The pin in question is the TX pin but you need to configure it in the config.txt.

Re: MintyPi Won't Power On

Show us your wiring, could be a faulty GND. Try to solder a few additional GND GPIO from the Pi to the controller PCB. There is one right below the 'A' button GPIO.
