Mounted screen upside down - can Teensy go somewhere else?

Post by ylwsub68 » Sat Jul 16, 2016 9:27 pm

So I mounted my screen upside down so it could be centered better. The ribbon cable now comes down from the top of the GB and the back of the display board now faces downward. Now I'm at the part where the board connects to the display. I cut the Teensy wires to where they come up to the top, like the post said. But now it seems to rest where the ribbon cable is. Can I move the Teensy to another part of the case, or can I somehow flip the display board at this point, or did I completely f*** myself here? :?

if you shorten the wires, you can probably place the teensy right where your fingers are

I put mine on the bottom of the case to the right of the headphone jack, like this:

You may need to re-wire your teensy to make it fit like this though.

If you mounted it upside down i assume you have to make a config change to rotate the screen. However, what happens if you plug in a hdmi display, i guess that will be rotated too?

I've already made that change and it works great on the screen :D Haven't tested HDMI yet

If you use rotate_display=2 in config, then yes HDMI gets flipped as well, however you can use an EDID tag, grab the EDID handle for the TV you want to plug into, and then rotate_display=0 to flip it back.

I put the Teensy at the back of the button controller like in the pic below:

What screen do you have? On cannikin's 640x480 screen there's an option on the screen itself that flips the image so you don't need the EDID solution (and therefore don't need to deal with EDID's downsides) at all. I'll edit this post with EDID info later.

I have a cheapo eBay screen. So I doubt it has that function
