Re: Static on screen

So you used another v3 LCD on this kit? And it gave you the same issue? Might want to redo the LCD GPIO which are middle GPIO. If that doesn't fix it then could be a bad pi but I've never seen those symptoms shown in the pictures.

Re: Adding roms directly?

I've been having issues getting the WiFi to work on my MintyPi and I've decided to deal with it in a future version. So where would I put the roms in micro sd card's folders so that retroarch can use them? You'll have to use a usb drive then go go through the menus to copy them into the right folde...

Re: Minty Pi v3 FaQ: Pre-Order Edition!

I just noticed on Helder's instagram that the current MintyPi will probably no longer be available due to the screen no longer being made. Will there be an updated version with a new screen coming? I know you just announced the lite version, but I really want one with all the bells and whistles. I ...

Re: 18 pin 0.8mm ribbon connector

You're supposed to solder the LCD ribbon cable to that area, there is connector needed.

Re: MintyPi v3 not powering off

Nope no way to fix it and you won't find a fix either in the stickied topic mentioning this problem either.

Re: 5.5 inch 2k LCD panel

5inch x 2.8inch Doubtful you can fit that in a Pocket or any other handheld shell of yesteryear but it is nice and expensive.

My only request is that you keep the headphone jack
Nope it's gone but there is ample space on the side of the tin it used to be in if you want to add it yourself.

Re: "A" Button Problem

The crappy flux you use and seems everyone who has the same issue uses is a type that needs cleaning afterwards. If you see that oily or wet looking residue that is a big giveaway you have flux that is in between the boards and likely shorting the buttons. You need to clean the hell out of that stuf...

Re: white screen after reflow

I have spoken to this person through email and the problem will be resolved once he is in the states. It's likely misalignment of the LCD which is what was the issue when we tried to reflow the pins of the ribbon, some times they'd be so far forward and looked like it had good contact but it didn't....

Re: "A" Button Problem

Check them to GND, here is a question for you and I think the answer is yes but did you use Flux to assemble the Pi and controller PCB?
