Robochris’ Atomic Purple “Pocket Pi FE”

Wow, what a journey this was. This was the most frustrating build I’ve done yet. Not to anger any one, but I’ve had two blank boards since last November. And have been working on them inconsistently on and off since then. The components weren’t too hard to put on. A good experience, I’d say. I used ...

hey, if you are considering selling your damaged proj, lmk how much you are willing to sell for. ty!
The board is not useable. I took a dremel to it. The rest is so cheap and readily available online , it’s not really worth my time to pack up and ship out.

Re: Powering off

Small rant but this has been the most unenjoyable build I’ve done. I’ve had 2 blank pcbs since November 2018. Fried a tiny resistor twice on one and can’t figure out why, and this one can’t seem to run correctly. Screen problems. Audio problems. Power problems. I don’t really like the premade img bu...

[Solved] Powering off

I can’t seem to figure out how to turn the system off and on like normal. If the system is on and I flip the top switch it seems to just kill emulationstation and just sits at the terminal without powering off. If I flip the switch on the small green board on the front then flip the top switch it wi...

Re: Collecting information on alternative displays - please contribute

for a 3 a+, the spi works pretty great - its just the zero they struggle on really. but yeah, for the ili9341 they only get up to 3.2, which is close but you do lose a little bit. i think that the hdmi ones used to fit better a while back, but the manufacturers seemed to have changed most of them.....

Re: Collecting information on alternative displays - please contribute

i'd say the next step up from composite is the SPI / ili9341 approach. it's a few GPIO pins to connect, and software to set up, but it's not all that difficult. it's low power too, so it usually gives you a longer battery life. problem with it is that it can be more intensive on the gpu, so some 16...

Re: Collecting information on alternative displays - please contribute

Ill be honest, Im not reading through 70 pages of this thread. so ill ask, what is a good screen type to go with that is a step up from the composite we all used in the beginning? hows clarity and performance of hdmi screens? I dont mind spending a bit more for better quality but at the same time I ...

Re: pi not powered?

I had a problem similar... check/reflow your soldering on the small green board on the front of the pcb (with the switch on it). this is what solved my power problem.
