Re: Save button Loads Instead?

Software issue, not sure there is a fix. It's happened to me too, i just deal with it when it happens. Issue is that button is a combination of 2 buttons and sometimes i think it holds the select button in the combo down longer than expected.

Looking good, I'm hoping there is a run of the Cinnamon tins.
Unlikely.

Re: Airpod

Go read over the many forum posts here about Bluetooth headphones and none of them work on the raspberry pi so since the mintyPi is powered by a Pi then chances are good it's a no.

Re: V3 ES Menu Freeze/Crash

Update: I finally gave up after reaching the conclusion my treatment was worse than the disease (apt-get update/upgrade broke the sound). I went ahead and swapped in a new SD card with fresh mintyPi image and seems to be stable now. Huge relief as I feared it might have been related to HW issue on ...

Re: Question about release of Mintypi Lite

Why not ask the me directly if you follow me on Instagram? As it is right now there is no more v3 going to be made, I plan to look at some of these other screens to see if they will work or not but then there is the added cost so because of that those might be made with a pre-order only since people...

Re: Display not working

update: rechecked all my connections with a new meter. Cannot get GND to have continuity with the test pad. Then there is your problem, rewatch Wermy's build video and look at his tips about getting the solder into the GPIO with a wire or you can just solder a wire from the GND GPIO to the GND Test...

Re: Display not working

Why are some of the GPIO not look like they are soldered? The lower Left one is a GND and it's always good to have as many GND connections as possible soldered. You are using the correct mintyPi image with this too right? Test continuity following this image below. https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachm...

Re: MintyPi V3 doesn't start up (flickering white screen)

Have you check the actual voltage on the battery itself? what is the voltage also have you tested continuity to the neighboring GPIO of each GPIO? to be sure there is nothing touching under the Pi. Also when did you get this kit? is it using one of the older fixed Power Boards?

Re: Flashing blue led

Figured it out. The battery was not seated correctly. So a guide for the old type of power board is Solid blue = charging Flashing blue = battery problem/not seated correctly No light = charged. If you have one of these old boards let me know as I can replace it with a newer one. Better to have one...
