Mode Button PinoutShow
Use a multimeter in continuity mode, or look at the manual, or check this pic:

What you can do is 'fold' the pins over so that they meet, and solder the wires onto the join of the fold.
My LCD colours are weird or doesnt display at allShow
If you are having LCD issues, then FIRST make sure that your Pi is actually booting. The green LED on the Pi itself should flash rapidly (indicates SD activity). Also make sure you have written the FLASHER image to the SD.

An LCD issue is either a soldering issue, or a ribbon cable seating issue. Make sure it is seated fully (you won't be able to see the metal contacts when it is fully inserted) then, check the following image:

The PINK ones are the most important, if you have done these then the screen will show you 'something' .. when the TESTER image loads up, the TOP 3 COLOUR BARS should show RED, GREEN, and BLUE .. if any of them don't look like a smooth transition, then that is the colour area that needs fixing! You can see the image above for which pin d
oes which colour, and re-work those.
It boots but freezes or safe shutdown doesnt workShow
This is most likely a bad connection on either of these two pins:

How do I joystickShow
1. Power everything off (including removing the micro usb cable)
2. HOLD the START button
3. Plug in the micro USB to the SAIO board (you DON'T need to power up the console with the switch, just apply power and the LEDs will come on).
4. You should notice the ST1 LED (or the external STATUS LED) will flash quickly 4x times, and then for the next 10 seconds it will begin flashing on and off fairly quickly (it's pretty obvious).
5. During that 10 seconds, slowly rotate the joystick all the way around and keep rotating it (this is now calibrating)
6. Done!

Testing power without the backboardShow
Place a wire in these holes or use some tweezers:

Run tester image on HDMIShow
Put SD into PC, open with NOTEPAD++ (don't use normal notepad!!) and remove the #'s from lines to 'uncomment' and add a # to lines to 'comment'. You only want one or the other modes, in the image below DPI is enabled:

Update Arduino CodeShow
GUIDE HERE: https://github.com/geebles/Super-AIO/wi ... duino-Code

Could you download the github repo (https://github.com/geebles/Super-AIO/archive/master.zip) and unzip it, and then go into 'source/SAIO_Arduino/SAIO_v2a' and open the .ino file with the Arduino editor.. then plug the SAIO in WITHOUT POWERING IT UP to the PC, and in Arduino click 'tools -> board -> Arduino Leonardo' and then 'tools -> port -> COM XX' .. then press 'Upload'

You may need to go into libraries -> Manage Libraries -> *search* "HID-Project"
If you get errors on compiling..
FAQ
- Solder isn't melting! - Use a bigger solder tip. You want to get the right amount of heat into the pads without needing the iron too hot. A small tip and a cheaper iron might not work as you'll have to turn the temp up a lot to get it to melt, while then melting off small pads because it's too hot! Get a bigger tip, at the right heat, and you'll have a better time :)

Kite,

Thanks for the hard work!

If Soldering Service was purchased are any steps necessary in chapter 5.5 of your guide? (Pages 25-30)
Any other steps that can be skipped?

Thanks!

Please read before you post, the very first post of this thread says that this is for support questions only. Immediately after that sentence is a link to the pre-order thread which leads you to a page with big giant letters that say next pre-order email signup.

I thought I read in the other thread you were looking into another option of connecting the pi to the aio (other than soldering). I personally don't mind, but I think a lot of people underestimate how tricky this could be, especially after seeing some of the soldering on this forum. Is that something you're looking into?

Good point, I looked in to it and then realised why I didn't do that in the first place.. if the Pi isn't mounted flush to the board, then it hits the power switch (hence why the power switch needs some plastic cut to lower it in the case) and also the back board.. this is because the Pi is so wide, in future I'm going to move it vertically so that it can be mounted easier..

So the final answer is it has to be mounted like I have done in the guide :) you COULD use the Pi3EXT adapter and solder the Pi Zero to it (seeing as the 40pin connector is the same) but that is more soldering :P
