Re: troubles with minty pi.

I'm having the same issue. It will boot, then almost like "controlled shut down" as if I was holding the power switch, and the screen (and the lights on the pi) will shutdown.

Its driving me nuts over here!

Re: Mintypi Boots then dies

Well, I'll feel sorta stupid if thats it. But it was booting fine this morning? Do these batteries naturally drain quickly?

Mintypi Boots then dies

Hi All, Just wanted to quickly see if anyone has any assistance on this one? Had my minty working this morning except for the select button, tore her back apart to resolder the select button. Now I can get everything working off USB, and it would appear that when I use the battery, I get a quick fla...

Re: Mintypi v3 software issue

When you formatted your SD Card you formatted over your mintypi image. You will need to re-format and reflash your mintypi image They're referring to a flash drive in that guide, not your card. If you plan to add games with a USB stick, you will need a micro USB to fullsize USB hub/adapter, and then...

Re: MintyPi 3 Screen going all white after booting

might have something to do with the dualfet on the powerboard that Helder is fixing. You should check his instagram, he is repairing power boards as they are prematurely cutting out, if it will boot with a FULLY charged battery, and then very quickly not boot, that may be the issue?

Re: Mintypi v3 sound
