Re: LCD Shorts something out on CSL

I can look to repair but removing stuff is way harder than putting it on, regardless you won't have to wait 5 months because i have spares for existing customers! I can do you a discount on a replacement board if you send me an email we can work it out. It might be better in future to snip the long...

Re: LCD Shorts something out on CSL

So, an entire weekend later, I bought solder wick and got 99% of the solder off but I can’t get the pi off. I just lack the knowledge and tools to take this pi off the board. I’m too scared to do anything else because this CSL was expensive and I absolutely do not want to break this. So kite if you ...

Re: LCD Shorts something out on CSL

I’ve gotten out the multimeter, other than some of the GPIO ports shorting to ground, there are no neighboring pins shorting each other. Also I’ve noticed that even using usb or battery I couldn’t get a solid 5v off the 5v pins. I’m suspecting a bad pi but I literally don’t have anything that could ...

Re: LCD Shorts something out on CSL

Could you show some pics of your soldering job? If you remove the LCD does it go back to normal or still gets hot? I've added a new step to the 'sanity check' stuff on the guide before soldering anything to test the LCD out to hopefully prevent something like this happening (or, at least being able...

Re: LCD Shorts something out on CSL

without being to tech savy, i would suspect that you have a faulty pi zero. have you tested it by it self, connected to a tv/screen, with a wall socket power supply? I hate that I didn’t test it, but I do have another pi zero, I just don’t have a way to desolder it properly lol... I’m hoping kite w...

[Solved] LCD Shorts something out on CSL

Hi! I was connecting everything up to test all the electronics, everything was going well until I plugged in the LCD to the board. Without the LCD plugged in I got activity from the PI (Green LED on the pi was flashing indicating activity, PGOOD LED on the board was also solid/flashing). When I woul...
