Hi everyone! I was pleased to receive my GameShell a few days ago, and I got around to assembling it yesterday. The assembly seemed to go fine, but when I started it up the screen stayed dark.
After shutting it down (by holding the power button) and starting it up again a few times and checking the cable connections I realized the screen did actually display things; It’s just that the backlight does not work at all so it’s hard to see what’s on the screen. I am able to operate the menu and settings with the help of a desk light, here’s what I tried so far:
- Adjusted the Backlight Brightness setting: makes no difference
- Checked and re-connected the screen cable: nothing changes
- re-flashed the os on the microSD card: no change
- Adjusted the Power options setting after update: no change
Can anyone help me with this issue? It seems weird to me that of all things only the backlight would be inoperable, rather than the screen entirely…
