I just received my gameshell and built it up, but it seems to be having problems with the display. Thought I would reach out to the community to see if there were any other things I could do to try and troubleshoot the screen.
Some things I’ve already checked.
I unplugged all the modules and just left the mainboard, plugged in power and a micro HDMI cable, and got video output. So I don’t think it’s the main board. I had to use a different sd card with a clean flash of GameShell OS to get video output. (Although it looks like it’s just stuck on the clockwork loading screen.)
I did receive assembly with the video cable installed backward, but reoriented it to have it fit fine, then reinstalled it to the mainboard. So at this point tried to power up just the mainboard and the screen together. But still no output on the LCD screen.
I checked the continuity with the ribbon cable between the mainboard and the screen and the cable looks fine.
I also reseated the LCD ribbon that goes from the screen to the daughterboard (the one attached to the screen itself.) Still no luck.
Any other ideas on what I can do to fix this? or do I just have a faulty screen?
