BW Screen Help

Post by RuttleHeads » Fri Sep 29, 2017 7:20 pm

Hey guys,

has anyone seen this board or know what I would need to do to get it to convert to 5V?

The only 8 pin chip on the board is labeled
" MK
25Q40A1IG
1654 "

I have tried red wire to second from top left with and without black wire on second from top right. Nothing.

There is also two chips with M7 and SS14, I've tried hooking up pos and ground to both of those with no luck as well.

Without any modification the screen just flickers on and off showing the retropie startup.

after looking around I got this working with Tobiwall's mod! (http://www.sudomod.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3892)

remove this IC and solder a red wire between existing red wire and indicated pin.
