Re: Possible solder issue with audio

That 3rd pin is a GND so if it was bridged it would no even start up. There is no sound unless you have a game to actually load so more than likely sound works but if you enter a menu like say the Show IP in the Retropie Menu it will cause a pop noise from the speaker so if you hear that then you ha...

### V3.5 White Screen Fix ####

If you are getting a white screen and your soldering is good (bad or questionable soldering is not going to fix a white screen) you will need to use the latest image that fixes white screens happening. Burn it to the SD and insert into the Pi and you should be good to go. https://www.mediafire.com/...

Re: MintyPI Boots and works on micro USB, but on USB-C and Battery Turns off

Test the TX pin when powered through microUSB , measure the voltage there and if it is 0 then you either shorted the pin or Electro Static Discharge could have damaged the GPIO. This GPIO is crucial in keeping the pi on and also turning it off and if it is damaged then you will need another Raspberr...

Re: MintyPi 3.5 Screen Issue

There is a new Image out that was released 2 days after the initial release that you likely are using that fixes the issue.

Re: mintypi v3 power board

Sounds like the battery is not fully charged or might not be seated properly, measure the battery voltage at the battery and the 3d pin from the top on the white connector when you press the power button. https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/197017091352690688/608006048124633088/20190805_143217.jpg

Re: Mintypi V2 bridged solder point help

Use solder braid with a soldering iron tip that is larger than the one you are using to solder the pi to the pcb.

Re: I have to press hard on minty pi buttons for it to recognize

Be sure the pcb is perfectly flat on the #D controller part. Quite often people use thick wires for the speaker making it bulge and making a gap between the pcb and buttons.

He messaged me on Instagram and forgot to get back to him, looks like a bad ribbon or using the wrong image.

Re: Where can I get a replacement screen for the Minty Pi Lite?

I don't have any for sale, you will have to buy a bare lcd and remove the old one and solder on the new one. It's a ili9341 2.4inch LCD 18pin without Touch.
