Re: Shoulder Buttons Fell Out...

I looked a bit more at mine and I think they're falling out because I didn't solder the button board at a far enough backward angle. I might try digging out the hot glue the next time I feel like messing with it, and see if I can resolder and reorient the entire button board closer to the back of th...

Re: Static in the audio, Minty Pi V3

Got it. After peeling off the kepton tape, the DIN pin was making intermittent contact. Reflowed that, and the staticky distortions are gone.

Re: Static in the audio, Minty Pi V3

I've resoldered the speaker with shorter wires, shaped to go around the speaker and only exactly long enough so they can't get pinched, and the problem is still happening. The static is actually a consistent volume even when I turn the unit down. It sounds like distorted echos of the game audio, and...

Re: 3M Tape Alternative?

I found some Extreme Mounting Tape at my local office max for this. I looked the specs up and it's nearly identical to the VHB tape. (Was trying to get parts locally whenever I could.)

Re: Battery

I ended up getting a 1950mah battery from a Huawei Y300 on Ebay. The model number was HB5V1HV. I basically just found the phone that the CS-HUY300XL battery went to and found an official battery for the same phone. It seems to fit in my case at least. I did tape it down with some low-end double side...

Re: Shoulder Buttons Fell Out...

I have to be careful when I put it into the sleeve because otherwise the buttons will catch in the sleeve and pull out. I might try the remote control fix sometime here.

Static in the audio, Minty Pi V3

I recently put the Minty Pi v3 together. In testing, I didn't have an issue with the audio, all seemed to be fine. Now that it's fully assembled there's some scratchy static on both the speaker and the headphone jack. The wires didn't seem to be pinched when I assembled it, but it's always possible ...

Red Penguin Caffeinated Cinnamons Tin v3

I built up my Cinnaminty Pi today. I wasn't able to use the cinnamon's tin that was sitting on my desk for a decade, but I grabbed one off Ebay that was in better shape and built this. What better tin to put a Linux based device in than one with a penguin on it. The guide isn't quite right for this ...
