Those errors are common with the sound card missing, the real question here is can you move around using a keyboard?
No response from a keyboard. I installed mintypi retropie on another pi zero w and everything worked perfectly. Most likely pi zero fault. Thanks for your help anyway

Re: Buttons not responding at retropie home screen

You can try hooking up a keyboard to the Pi and see if that works. Here are some test videos: https://youtu.be/2GdZNprIRZ8 https://youtu.be/WE2_z6v1e0k https://youtu.be/cWDTd0cLUFI Without the sound card, it pretty reliably boots to main menu of retropie, but there are some errors thrown during boo...

Re: Buttons not responding at retropie home screen

Ground seems ok since LCD is turning on. If you have some pin headers remove one and heat up the problematic GPIO and insert it in the hole (use tweezers!) all the way down. Once it's cool use some flush cutting snips and you will have a solid connection. From any button GPIO to it's test pad is th...

Re: Buttons not responding at retropie home screen

What happens when you test continuity on the 2 solder pins of the start button when you press it? If there is continuity when you press it then the button is good. Try testing continuity from lower pin of the button to the Start GPIO and see if that's good. Got pictures if your solder job? Is it po...

Buttons not responding at retropie home screen

Hey everyone, I love this minty pi project, but I’m having a hard time getting the buttons to register at the retropie main menu. Here is where I am in the project: -soldered PCB to pi zero w (it may be worth noting I had problems getting continuity on two pins, ground and up button. It took over fi...
