Screen issue with Gaboze Pocaio

Post by Spyder » Sun Dec 29, 2019 11:38 pm

So after several hours of work today building this, I have what I would call success. However there seems to be an issue with the screen having lines across half of it. I’m holding it’s something simple like reflowing solder somewhere, but I figured I’d ask the experts. Any ideas?

What raspberry pi model did you use to build it?

What kind of screen did you use?

Could you explain to me how you fed that screen?


thanks.

Looks like a faulty screen, better grab one asap as these are in super scarce supply and doesn't look like they are going to be made anymore. I am struggling to find a decent amount and I am talking to manufacturers who supply them.

Thanks. I contacted the seller already and they will ship a replacement. I guess I'll look into a new screen when I start playing around with the eagle files. I want to add the ADS on the board and some sort of safe shutdown. Most likely adding a polulu switch. Probably change the mounting of the pi as well because right now I'm having issues of it fitting in one spot on the back.

Replacement received and I had to rebuild this unit for a 3rd time because of my own stupidity, but it worked and I have a functional Gaboze. Just waiting for brackets for the XY and L&R buttons along with a battery that will fit inside of the case itself, then it is complete.... until I get the guts to add the ADS to it.
