Re: Did I kill my pi 0?

If you have any power wire touching a GND the pi will short out and you get the results you had. Always be aware of the power and GND points and make sure nothing touches them.

Getting some better wire might help too since it seems a little thick, I recommend 28AWG the silicone type.

Re: MintyPi will longer turn on

That's an extreme call of the pi being fried, how did you come to this conclusion? Removing the pi without experience or the right tools will likely damage the controller pcb.

Re: MintyPi will longer turn on

So I take it you have no battery in the unit since you're powering the thing through the usb-c instead of through the battery. If you have no battery the usb-c is not passing it's full power and amps to the pi but to the charging chip which does not provide enough power to the boost chip that powers...

So I finished my pi and my screen has started to have this snow effect, turns to static, then freezes. Any ideas on where I should check first?
This is a new one for me, can you get a quick video of it in action doing this and also does the screen get excessively hot?

Re: V3 20190501 Can't shutdown?

I was in the first batch for v3 pcbs, had to fix my screen and sent my powerboard over to Helder to replace that one part that needed replacing on the powerboard So you got a powerboard with a wire fix on it? If so send me a PM with your shipping info (don't forget your name too) and I'll send you ...

Re: Sound help. Sorry!

Do you have continuity from the 5v GPIO to the D1 pad highlighted on the image on the wiki? I can see you are not powering the Pi & Controller from the powerboard so you are seeing 5V from the usb plugged into the Pi. If there is no continuity from 5v GPIO to that D1 pad then there is no sound plain...

Re: Random white screen and restart

Running into the same issue. I have one of the first batch kits and I haven't removed the resistor from the back of the LCD yet but it seems to run fine aside from this problem. Any progress on the troubleshooting for this? So ignoring the removal of the resistor which has been said causes the scre...
