Re: [FOR SALE] Picicle a portable games console

I accidentally reversed the 1uF and one of the .1uF caps. When desoldering the cap from the 1uF slot, the solder pads both came right off. What's my best bet to repair these pads?

UPDATE: Also tried to clean up the miniUSB pads with desoldering wick and those pads have delaminated as well. I've only got my iron at 650 degrees Fahrenheit, not sure why this board is having so many issues. At this point it's probably not even repairable.

Hi, do not tell me on the following question.
Soldered everything according to the instructions. I recorded the image on a USB flash drive. After launch, just a white screen... :(

Can't seem to select anything in the raspi config menu when I boot, I've tried all the buttons and nothing will actually let me select..

I can navigate but can't select

Any ideas?

If you can't use the buttons to select, it is likely how they are defined. I can't recall if the picicle image use retrogame utility or not. Often when using retrogame I will define start or select as 'enter' to allow seletcion in the menus.

Another option is to get wifi set up headless (using a wpa supplicant file), and then using a program like putty on your computer to remote in, then you can just use the keyboard on your computer for any changes that need to be made etc...
