Re: tinkerboy v3 pcb problem D-pad

We unscrewed the button PCB a little bit. It was not very "tight" but now it works a lot better and diago...

tinkerboy v3 pcb problem D-pad

The V3 is now finally build into a Gameboy with raspi3 A+, Tinker V3, Tinker Dpi. Everything worked out fine except for the V3. The directional buttons only work one at a time never together (so you can not go diagonally or aim diagonally). I asked some other people with the same board from before d...

Re: Full VGA resolution (640x480) 3.5" display, composite in

Hi thanks for your answer! Nope we could not test the screen before. The 3,3 V are to the button board of the screen. 5V are on the VGA Board as shown on the board (attachment). What do you mean with test pad? The Image on Raspi works (tested with hdmi). Also inserted display_mode=3 for testing in c...

Re: Screen does not work

So I wired the controllboard but the screen does not react to anything I do (Voltage is ok everywhere)... Source, Power On - Just does not care.
Getting really frustrated :) and do not know anything what I can do now.
