Re: White Screen and no boot (dead pi?)

That battery reading is so wrong that you are either not using the multimeter properly or somehow you doubled the voltage output of the battery which is impossible. Other than that and you not showing us any pictures of your soldering can't suggest anything else other than the soldering could be bad...

Re: No button presses on home screen

Looks like bad soldering, you likely used flux and it's causing shorts between the pi and controller pcb. If you did not use flux it's also the soldering as random button presses occur from buttons being shorted to something else.

Re: Buttons not working

Do the buttons work without the 3D printed part there? just the buttons on top of the pcb? I think it's either a soldering issue as it's 95% of the time and you have have too much of a gap between the pcb and 3D print making it not have good contact with the button membranes. And why are you using t...

Re: System won't shut down. Solution here

This is for the V3 where it's a Push button power switch not the Lite slide switch, totally different hardware.

Re: MintyPi V3 with Lite Screen

So you bought the Lite screen and you want to use it on the v3? well then you need to install the LCD driver but since you are a noob with all of this just use the mintyPi lite image to get it to show. But then there are other issues you will have like the device not turning on for more than a few s...

Re: White Screen and no boot (dead pi?)

Yup the laptop charger likely killed the charging chip or some other parts but best way to know is to plus a usb-c cable into something like a usb port of a computer and see if the lights come on to show it's charging the battery. You can also test the voltage of the battery to see if it has a charg...

Re: White screen on minty pi lite

Yeah, you could. Then follow the sudomod wiki on how to put ROMs on your SD card/mintyPi. Thats what I used to guide me through it. Also, you could message me to see what website I used for ROMs if you would rather.(I'm not sure if I can post links on here.) No rom links, if you want to PM him with...

Re: White screen on minty pi lite

Only thing I can tell you that it's soldering related or the ribbon could be damaged, it's always the soldering 95% of the time here is a picture of continuity from the Pi to the LCD board, check these points for continuity and if one does not have continuity then there is your problem.

Re: Buttons not working

I think you are again skipping the important part, continuity. Have you tested continuity or are you just winging it? Without having a multimeter and doing continuity testing you are shooting in the dark and pretty much wasting our time trying to help since you can't verify the problems without it. ...
