Re: Tinkerboy v2.2

The pads on the pi for D+ and D- are very close together on the pi, and easy to bridge. Make sure there is no continuity between those two pads after soldering, and also make sure the pad for D- is not bridged to ground, since it is so close to that ground point right beside it.

Re: Tinkerboy v3 "No Gamepad Detected" issue

Another thing to try if you can't remove the glue, is to strip down another micro USB, like you have for the power, and connect it directly to the pi, and then run the data wires to the button PCB. Or better yet, just use that same plug for the power micro USB, move it to the data USB port, and sold...

Re: Tinkerboy v3 "No Gamepad Detected" issue

I can't see the D+ and D- on the pi side, I would expect the issue is something to due with those connections, since the controls are handled via USB. Does the audio work, since it is also USB controlled. What about the external USB, plug in a keyboard, and see if it works. If not you for sure have ...

Re: Upgrading version 2.0 to 3.0?

Yeah, what Veteran said. By the time you disabled the old minty pi v2 scripts for audio, display, battery monitoring, controls, safe shut down etc (basically everything)...And manually installed all the new scripts for the v3 you would have wasted more time that just starting fresh with the new mint...

Also.. what's the best way to clean out that solder in the pi?
I'd use some solder wick.

But you could also use a little solder pump, or even just brush a hot iron across it and see if you can drag some off.

Re: My modded DMG's

I had kind of forgot about this post. Just noticed the new comment and decided to update it. I have added my 5,6, and 7th DMG's to the first post, as well as two pockets that I have also done!

Re: Null 2 soldering pi zero onto board

yeah, looks not bad. As mentioned above should be good to go. If those GPIO's are used for anything there should be a corresponding test pad for them, if needed you can just run a small wire from the pi to that test pad. Make sure you clean that residual solder before you try to solder the pi again.

Re: Null 2 soldering pi zero onto board

These practice boards by Helder are great too. I reccomend getting some if you are new to soldering. Since flush mount soldering the pi is not that easy for a beginner.

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 ...
