I managed to install my Pi Zero reversed on my Hyperpixel. The display let out the magic smoke, but not from anything obvious. AS a technical exercise I was thinking about taking a swing at fixing it. At the moment, the display is black, without any backlight, so I was looking at the LED backlight circuit which seems to be pretty simple, but has no signs of burning.
I am sure that this must have happened before, any idea on what might have gone up from the reversed pins?
