Re: Not all buttons working for certain ROMs?

Hey All, So I got my GBZ up and running and it plays games just fine. I've loaded about ~10 ROMs or so and haven't had any problems. However, I tried playing super mario all stars (snes) and am seeing a weird issue where the AB/XY buttons simply don't work. I can use the D-Pad to choose which game ...

Re: PWM audio issue

I'd like to report back and say that I needed to turn the volume up in the RetroPie settings. Thanks to the both of you! It's not super loud with everything max (emulation station, retropie, and volume wheel all max) but it's audible. And of course very audible with headphones.

PWM audio issue

Hey all, I have my GBZ configured to use PWM audio. Everything is soldered to the right place and I've configured RetroPie with the necessary config entries, but the speaker output is extremely low. You have to literally smash your ear up to the speaker grill to hear anything, even with the audio wh...

Re: Sound issue

Did you try disabling audio dither? That got rid of the static for me.

Add this to your /boot/config.txt

Code: Select all

disable_audio_dither=1

Re: Unibit vs. regular drill bit

That was the right choice. I bought mine from HandHeldLegend, and it made drilling the extra holes trivial. I doubt I'll ever use this bit for another else..but it's never bad to have another tool in the box!

Re: Did I ruin my screen's board?

That looks recoverable... The resistor that got knocked isn't melted, just needs resoldering. The pads of the IC you removed might be ok, it's hard to see with all the burnt flux though. Have you got some solder wick/braid? Some fresh solder and braid will clean that up nicely then you can see what...
