Screen Displaying Only Noise On Boot

Just built my A06 DevTerm. Everything went fine. Cabling seems fine.

Booted it up with the included SD Card and sadly the screen is just displaying nonsense.


Some things I have tried:

  • Re-seating both sides of the display cable
  • Booting with the case open and jiggling the cable
  • Running on battery, battery + charger, charger only, multiple chargers
  • Flashing a fresh disk image onto the SD card

never meet before

how about double check the wires ,if they connected well
and if everything seems right still then

send email to help@clockworkpi.com

As guu said, that really look like something is not correctly plugged. Try to reseat the cable to the screen, and the core module. Both carry critical signals that is they don’t transmit properly will led to (temporary) issues with the display.

Thanks both @guu and @Godzil . I have tried resetting the cable many times to no avail :frowning:

Hmmmm :confused:

Not sure what else to test, it can be a lot of different things. Though try to re image the SD card, just in case? Bad software could also cause that.

yeah, tried that as well, and get same result. At least I can be assured the re-imaging went fine because it causes the same exact pattern of noise each time. So it definitely leads me to thinking it’s a hardware issue. I just wish it was as simple as the cabling being loose, but that doesn’t seem to be the case :confused:
