Need Help! :(

Post by sethrg » Wed Jan 01, 2020 7:05 pm

Hi - My 13 year old son and I recently purchased a MintyPi kit and tried assembling. We thought this would be a nice holiday project for the two of us. Unfortunately, I think we are out of our league in terms of the soldering. We soldered and the leads all appeared to be correctly testing, however, two parallel pins were also connected. When we tried to boot up, most of the time we only got a white screen. Occasionally we get the MintyPi screens to load though the system soon crashed. I'm afraid we need to un-solder the board and start over, however, I tried following the video and this is out of my league.

Is anyone able and interested in helping to fix our soldering mess and test out the system?
Thanks in advance!

I offered you help but you did not mention the bridged pins and of course there is a price for the desoldering and resoldering which anyone who is willing to help will also charge you. You can go with my offer or you can try someone else like LilTrblMakr who also provides such work.

Don't contact me about obtaining my board files (as you will not get them). Don't contact me about any of my boards if they are sold out, they will be restocked as soon as I can get them.

Don't support thieves like ckliang who copied my AIO to resell and is now cloning the mintyPi, support the original creators and not the thieves!
