Re: Kite Circuit Sword Screen Issues

Maybe the screen is touching something when closed? I would start by putting a layer of kapton tape on the back of the screen to prevent anything touching it. (Or on the PCB itself) Could also look at covering the LCD ribbon connector as well. It's really strange. But that would be my first step. Wo...

Re: screen power options

I'd just power it from whatever power supply you are using rather than from the Pi's gpio.

Re: Rodocop's 3rd GBZ [COMPLETE]

how do you wire te screen. ?? I used a composite screen, so you can see the wiring here. https://sudomod.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=958 The screen I used did not need any modifications to run off 5v, so it was a simple job. Depending on the screen you use you may need to modify it. Some of the commo...

Re: gearbest screen help please!

White or yellow shouldn't matter. I always use yellow though. Do you have a SD card with retropi in the pi? Without a proper image the screen will not power on. You're also right, there is no settings that need to be added or removed from the config.txt You could also try powering the screen from an...

Re: mintyPi v3 Lite, would you be interested in a more DIY and cheaper build?

I like the cheaper price tag for sure. I've only built v1and v2 minty pi's. But I've always been happy with the features of the v2. I've never needed more than that.

Re: Spyder's Gameboy Pocket build (Gaboze Pocaio Round 2)

Those pogo pins are D+ and D- nothing to do with power. But usb data. Which wont affect anything. Not sure why the pi doesn't contact them though. Maybe you were supposed to remove the black sheath on the headers so the pi can slide down more? Also the pi is powered via gpio. I would have resoldered...

Re: Rodocop's 3rd GBZ [COMPLETE]

I'm curious: is it worth it to have case borders around the screen (and Gameboy Zero screen protector)? They partially cover the screen - is it ok? I think that image can be adjusted to fit the visible part, but seems that it will be distorted. We'll since you cut out the screen it would be nice to...
