Re: Null 2 soldering pi zero onto board

Got any pics of what you did so we can help determine if it is actually ruined? As for tips, make sure you have a solder tip that can fit in the pi's GPIO hole. What I would do is use tape, or little clamps to hold the pi in place. Add liquid flux. Then solder the GPIO's. So put the solder tip into ...

Re: GBZ screen won't power from battery with powerboost

Do you have any pictures of your wiring and soldering. Might help if we can see what you are working with. Maybe it's an issue with the soldering. As for wiring, you should wire EN and GND to the switch only. Wire the pi/screen to the 5V and GND pads. (you said you wired it to the EN pin which does ...

Re: Mounting the (non-Adafruit) screen upside down?

Just as mentioned above, it's totally fine to mount upside down. In fact, in all of my builds I have mounted the screens upside down, it makes more sense to me to have the ribbon at the top of the gameboy too.

Re: Liath's GBZ - First build questions

Yeah. You are correct about the buttons. You can always confirm with a multimeter if you have the audible beep continuity setting.

Also, the buttons should only fit in one orientation the rear PCB.

Re: Glue Free(ish) GPIO GBZ w/ Pocket Adventures Helpers

Looks nice. I like the 3d part to allow the micro usb to fit the ext slot. It's a nice touch!

Re: Liath's GBZ - First build questions

Hey there, your diagram looks good. I see you have the power switch between the ground though. That is fine, but I usually put the switch on the 5v line. But it should act the same the way you have it wired. To answer a few of your questions. The white wire can just be cut off. It is typically just ...

Re: High quality DMG-01 shell with properly aligned text?

I've never noticed that before, until you pointed it out. But looking back at pictures of my builds using original vs aftermarket shells i see the same issue. Weird. As for where to find ones that do not have the text slightly off, I cannot answer that. Since it seems all the ones I have ordered hav...
