Hey hallo, I am having similar problem, I have a good connection between gpis and start on the minty board, but the start button won't work, what is weird is that it was working and one day it just stoped doing so... when check connection between start (on gpio) and ground there is also a solid connection... also weird. What should I do? thanks in advance

Might be a bad button, these things have a small flexible metal membrane inside, maybe it broke? Does it still click when you press it?

yes it does click, but now that you say so, I dont see any other reason why start and ground should be shortened, thanks for pointing that out, I will remove the button and post here the results
