I'm using a Adafruit Pigrrl gamepad PCB, Banggood 5v psu, a kedei screen and a pi3b plus.
I'm still having trouble on the button pcb, the button seems not working on the pi3.

regarding the buttons, did you configure Retrogame on your Retropie image?

also do the handheld work properly with that psu, HDMI screen and a pi3b+? that setup would require a lot of power ?

Sadly,the power supply seems that not have enough power, it get pretty hot when running,later I’ll try replace that with more powerful one(or replace the pi3 with a pi zero).
As for the button, yes i installed the Adafruit-Retrogame pigrrl 2.0 option, I'll give the post method a try. Thank you.

Welcome and thanks for sharing. :) You should check out Helder's Retro PSU - it should be able to power all that no problem: https://sudomod.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=6421
