Re: CSL won't boot

Hi, Electronics look fine, but the Pi isn't booting, meaning the SD card isn't being read correctly. Looking at your pictures, one of those test pads on the Pi itself is missing (ripped off or otherwise).

Re: Circuit swords not booting

Hm everything looks fine.. do you have another SD to try? Also if you put the imaged SD into your PC again, does a 56MB drive appear? And if you opened up the drive are there a bunch of files with one of them being "config-cs.txt" ?

It's an optional extra for those that want something a bit higher in quality, both are fine choices. I hope that has helped :) Seems like a no-brainer. Can you provide a type number for Aliexpress or something, or is that a corporate secret? :D I think I remember you previously linked to the 320x24...

Re: [PRE-ORDER] Circuit Sword, Circuit Sword Lite + Circuit Gem - OPEN

is the 640x480 screen hands down better than the 320x240 screen in every way, or are there some things the 320 screen does better like color, brightness, response time...? Curious about this as well The 640x480 LCD has 4x as many pixels compared to the included 320x240 LCD, which does make text and...

Re: Circuit swords not booting

Which software image have you put on the SDs? Do you have the link to the one used? The arrow is just a protective sticker on the LCD.

Re: Rainbow Screen When Running Tests?

Edit the cs-config.txt file back to how it was before (the NORMAL mode, you have put it in TEST mode as per the instructions)
